Earlier this week we showed you some renders of the unusual Doov V1 handset, a Chinese device with a flip camera, that is able to rotate from the back to the front using a special kickstand-like mechanism. Now the device is back thanks to a series of hands on shots.
You can see here that compared to the user’s hands, the camera is quite big and so is the device, that seems thick. We’ve got a dual LED flash on the kickstand area and it seems to be a dual tone flash. Once the camera mechanism is flip there’s an empty area left at the back, marked with a metal circular spot. That place could be used to either magnetically fixate the kickstand or for fingerprint scanning, but both theories are just my speculations.
This handset is made by Shenzen company Doov Technology and it uses midrange specs, like 16 GB storage, no microSD, a 13 megapixel camera, a 5 inch IPS HD display and a quad core CPU clocked at 1.5 GHz. This model measures 8.5 mm in thickness and I’m sure we’ll see this format adopt at least once more in the future.
