PanARMENIAN.Net - Siam, a start-up tech firm based in U.S., has introduced a new smartphone on crowd-funding site Kickstarter, claiming it's the first device with dual screen display to be made in United State, CCN World Tech reports. The Siam 7X as named packs two different displays, a 5-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) IPS display at the front and a 4.7-inch E-ink display at the back, both of which can be use simultaneously and manage separately.
This is not the first time we've seen such technology manifested on mobile, YotaPhone, a phone manufacturing company primarily based in China is well known when it comes to this aspect, though limited to Asia only. But Siam claims seems to be genuine as there is no record of any phone maker ever making a dual screen smartphone in the west (farther west). Besides its boasting of two display, both of which are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, the Siam 7X also sports a biometric earprint technology.
A technology which make use of Descartes Biometrix Helix system to recognize an ear and distinguishes it from one another. This functionality, as we guess, can lets users unlock their smartphone by just placing it to their ear or even restrict making and receiving phone calls. In terms of innard specifications, the Siam 7X is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek MT6753 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, alongside with 2GB of RAM.
The device runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box and offers dual-SIM functionality, both of which support 4G LTE. It comes equipped with a 16-megapixel autofocus rear camera coupled with LED flash, and an 8-megapixel selfie front camera. It is backed by a 2,100mAh battery.
The campaign is already on. Those who pledge $470 get the phone shipped to their doorstep with a free SMS Audio earbuds (heart rate monitor built-in), while $420 backers get the smartphone only.
