An interesting project by Planet Computers has appeared on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform regarding the 5G-enabled Astro Slide smartphone-transformer.

The novelty has a mechanism with a RockUp movable hinge, thanks to which the device can be transformed into a PDA with a QWERTY keyboard, which, in turn, allows you to send messages or search the Internet.

The smartphone has a 6.53-inch touchscreen display, as well as the flagship eight-core MediaTek Dimensity 1000 processor, which is characterized by "double the performance compared to other 5G chipsets with significantly reduced power consumption."

The device is equipped with a 48-megapixel main camera, front-facing selfie camera, 6 GB of RAM, a 128 GB flash drive, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth wireless adapters. Also mentioned is the NFC module, a fingerprint scanner, two USB-C ports and an audio jack for headphones.
