You can call this gadget a Mini Laptop, PDA (Personal Digital Assistant), or a great Smartphone. It’s true that the Astro Slide Smartphone offers all the qualities at once. The Phone’s sliding QWERTY keyboard reminds us of BlackBerry Key and Samsung Wave series phones. But for sure in an advanced way than those because of its tremendous “Rock UP” Hinge mechanism.

Astro Slide Smartphone will be the third product by Planet Computers. Before that, we have seen Gemini PDA & Cosmo Communicator in markets by the same company. The planet team so far is going well on track with great innovative ideas and bringing pocket computing more in common trends. So, let’s have a look over the specs and other expected features of this smartphone.

Astro Slide Smartphone

Well, First of all, I would mention the Astro Slide Smartphone’s Dual 5G feature. Since it is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Chip, it performs 2 times better than any other 5G chip. Apart from that, it also supports Wifi 6, the phone offers 4.7 Gb/s download speed & 2.5 Gb/s upload speed.

Secondly, I would mention Astro Slide’s sliding Physical Keyboard with a Rock Up Hinge mechanism. Guys, the keyboard is a mechanical one along with backlit support (buttons light for Dim/Dark Environment). Includes all the relevant key buttons which a full-size keyboard should have.

Thirdly, I would mention the all in one support of Astro Slide Smartphone. Simply, slide out the screen to reveal the keyboard, then flip it up and here you go. You have a Mini Laptop placed in front of you. Similarly, close the slide and use it as a normal Smartphone and PDA. The 6.5 Inches screen is enough to serve you well.
