    Ha ha, just teasing. Actually added the line a few minutes after the original post, so you might well have seen the original :)

    Hi, I noticed that at about 37:53,
    one of the developers says that one of the biggest inspiration comes from the Nokia E90. Later on, the same person says that they tried to replicate that hinge mechanism?

    Doesn’t he mean the Nokia E9 instead of the E90, or are my ears hearing wrong?

    As I am from Finland and English isn’t my mother language, I can be wrong too.

    What do you guys think?
    Overall it makes a solid impression on me.
    The feel of the keyboard seems to be really good, at least we got told so.

    Negative Points for me are:
    – A little bit slow in the change between portrait and landscape view (minor issue, may will be optimized software-wise).
    – Camera seems to stand out a little bit (see picture).
    – The back cover seems to save every fingerprint forever, it is already pretty greasy in the video (second image). But this could be a pure studio-lightning problem.
    – I wasn’t able to get a usable picture, but there seems to be a little gouge above the camera. It is also in the picture here (https://www.fxtec.com/forums/topic/what-do-you-think-of-the-latest-pro%c2%b9-back-case/) any idea what it could be? destroys the sleek look a little bit

    Very cool.

    I agree it looks quite slow switching between landscape portrait. And I know from experience with PQ I’ll often be browsing something in portrait one-handed then get to a field I need to type something and thus slide out the keyboard, enter what I need, then switch back to portrait…

    Would have been good to know about this in advance, they allow in-studio audience, and I live relatively close…

    Remember this is still early, and software far from optimized.

    BUT in android they got a delay on the autorotate, and only after this the delay it rotates. (Try any device with a decent app supporting landscape)

    – Camera seems to stand out a little bit (see picture).

    I do not know if this is the final design, but currently the ‘protrusion’ seems to be about 1/64 inch or 0.4mm

    If they could get a license agreement for an official dbrand skin it would solve two issues: it would counter the fatty fingers marks, and it would probably reduce/counter any wobble from the small camera bump.

    I really hope for dbrand, since a traditional case might be difficult for this slider-form factor.

    Then submit a Request on the website:
    https://dbrand.com/contact
    I did.

    I did that for the Nokia 9 PureView. No acknowledgement from dbrand about my request.

    I do, however, believe (educated guess) it is fxtec that needs to form a proper license agreement with dbrand, not something we can really affect – especially since fxtec is such a small brand. dbrand won’t reach out to them, unlike with perhaps Samsung, Apple, Huawei, LG and OnePlus etc. as it would be bad for dbrand not to partner with such big companies.

    A back skin would be a nice alternative to a case. No matter the brand.
    Preferably one with a little more grib than the smooth metal back.
    Cleverly it is NOT a back rounding smoothly into the side though, it has an edge that improves the grip (got my hands on a pre-production unit)
    I tried to make a sketch:

    Wow you so lucky to get to see one already :)! Are you at liberty to tell us more? How does it feel to type on?
