ViewSonic rushed to showcase some of its handsets today at MWC 2012 and The Verge was there to capture them. One of the new devices is the ViewPhone 4s, that was available for some hands on quality time. Know that this model with a 3.5 inch display supports a resolution large enough to qualify it as a Retina Display… or close.


ViewSonic ViewPhone 4s is a dual SIM Android 4.0 phone with a 960 x 640 Super Clear IPS LCD display, a 5 megapixel camera, a VGA front camera and a 1GHz processor. The dual SIM unit allows you to select different voice call and message ringtones for each SIM and separates contacts and messages. The hands on at MWC 2012 revealed that the phone actually didn’t run Android ICS, but the final version will, rest assured. The product will come to Europe by June, apparently.

ViewPhone 4s is expected in the USA around August with a sub $499 price tag. The device’s design involves a waistline of around 10mm or so and it’s not a bad look at all. Let’s see if Apple has anything to say about a phone with Retina Display and the name 4s…
