UK-based startup to deliver premium niche mobile devices, starting with new Pro1 smartphone, a premium unlocked Android smartphone with a sliding and angled landscape QWERTY keyboard that reinvents and refines well-loved technology from the past.

Berlin, September 5, 2019 -- Today, F(x)tec, a London-based startup dedicated to bringing back and improving well-loved features missing in current mobile phones and related devices, is unveiling at IFA ShowStoppers, its first product, the Pro1, a new premium unlocked Android smartphone with a sliding and angled landscape QWERTY keyboard.

Focusing on consumers who both desire and share a passion for a refined and functional smartphone experience, the privately funded company is developing products for individuals who miss mobile phone technology from the past and now relish the opportunity to re-engage with and enjoy features that never had the opportunity to reach their full potential.

"We are delighted to unveil the final version of F(x)tec Pro1," said Adrian Li Mow Ching, founder and director of F(x)tec. "At F(x)tec, our vision of the ideal smartphone blends a modern handset with the very best features and functionality we loved and miss, to create a perfectly balanced package that is delightful and unique. Our goal is to be the best at niche functional devices, re-creating them in a better and more modern way - that's technology refined," adds Adrian Li Mow Ching.

Performance and Productivity

The Pro1 is equipped with a landscape QWERTY keyboard with five staggered rows and a sliding mechanism. The slider tilts the screen to a 155 degree angle for optimal viewing. Thanks to a unique and innovative key design, the keyboard provides responsive, tactile feedback with each keystroke.

To complement the premium look and feel, the Pro1 is as productive as it is sleek. The phone features Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, a rear dual camera system with Sony's IMX363, a small-bezel notch-less AMOLED screen with curved edges, stereo speakers, dual SIMs, and bespoke landscape-optimized UI, email, and calendar apps that take full advantage of the landscape QWERTY keyboard.

The Android operating system comes with an unlocked bootloader enabling users to load a different OS, e.g. Sailfish.
