Developer Unihertz is a well-known technology innovator when it comes to financing unconventional phones such as the tiny Atom and Jelly on Kickstarter. Though the Titan Slim might not be a super-small device, its BlackBerry-style physical keyboard will make it stand out in the crowd.
This is not the first Titan phone; it''s coming to Titan, which is a fairly large device, and Titan Pocket, a smaller version of the original. Unihertz describes the Titan Slim as the sleekest, most modern phone it has ever made.
Backers can get a Titan Slim for $249, which is 25% off the usual amount. It''s not going to offer flagship features at that price: a 1,280 x 720 4.2-inch screen, a 2019 Mediatek Helio P70 chipset, and cameras you wouldn''t want to catch memorable moments with, but it has fingerprint and face unlock capabilities, dual-sim support, and that physical keyboard with remappable keys.
After plans to launch a new BlackBerry phone were broken earlier this year, those who still want physical keyboards are left with limited options. However, many experts are skeptical of the Titan Slim''s appearance, despite several reports. With 27 days left to go, 1,915 supporters have pledged $481,210 at an all-time high.
