Planet Computers is raising funds for another unusual device – a 5G smartphone with a retractable physical QWERTY keyboard Astro Slide 5G Transformer. The British start-up planned to raise 180 thousand euros, but in the “piggy bank” on the IndieGoGo service there were already 326 thousand euros, and 40 days remained before the end of the campaign.

A smartphone (or “handheld” – whatever it is more convenient to call) will receive a 6.53-inch screen, a MediaTek Dimensity 1000 chip with a built-in 5G modem, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, a slot for memory cards, two SIM card slots, eSIM support and a 48 megapixel main camera. The new product will be running Android 10.


The finished product Planet Computers intends to release in a year, in March 2021. For those who manage to invest in a fundraising campaign, Astro Slide will cost less than 500 euros. On sale, it will be 40% more expensive.
