Pro¹ X – state of production and delivery


Recommended Posts

On the subject of "it's obsolete the day it's out", well yeah, it's true and the price is a little bit out of touch compared to Samsung mega factories, but it's not the same production scale, and we have enough alternatives if we must. But this obsolescence is not very surprising tbh: I never bought a phone people were not scoffing at one year later, asking me when I'll upgrade... at best. Most times they look at you with pity you couldn't buy the latest iphone the day you got your normal "I'd rather buy cheap phones I can break than break a 1.2k iphone and have to pay hundreds for a new screen" 😄

I have a no-google Huawei these days, and I don't feel at the top of the world either 😄 I'm not sure it matters to me anymore. The latest chipset consumes battery, cheats on benchmark and isn't available outside of samsung, is it truly a problem not to have it then ?

I like those news in particular ... 😺

yes yes it is, cpu wise. But the keyboard is timeless. The Question is only, what is the keyboard worth for you? I am currently an owner of a fried prawn, using my old phone (nokia 6.1). I do not mi

September Pro1-X update

ehi89ggra2zcuwfpqa54.jpg

Dear Pro1-X backers,

Here is the latest news from the Pro1-X campaign!

Hardware:

  • The Pro1-X hardware has now been optimised, tuned, and is in full working condition. 
  • We completed a number of functionality and durability tests using the V2 mainboard, which successfully demonstrated its functionality and durability to a high standard. 
  • There are a few minor changes that need to be made to improve certain LTE bands, which we will integrate into the V3 board of final mass production units. 

 

  • Check out this video to show the new camera settings:

  • This video shows the Wifi settings and keyboard functionality:

  • Here is the final mock-up of the AZERTY keyboard layout:

Software:

  • We are in the process of doing CE/FCC testing together with GMS. 
  • We currently have limited development units available, but expect to have more towards the end of this month which will allow more developers to begin software progress for alternative OS’. 

Final stages:

  • It has been a super busy summer, but we are excited to announce that we are almost ready to begin mass manufacturing and shipping your smartphones.
  • In the meantime, we have pre-ordered all the components we need and expect to be ready for mass manufacturing in October. 
  • We predict that production, packaging, and QC testing will take a few weeks in total, and our current estimated shipping dates will be in November. 
  • We have almost finished negotiating the commercial terms with our suppliers and will share the final manufacturing and assembly timeline and delivery dates once they have been confirmed.  

In other news…

We are pleased to announce that we have recently expanded our team! Angelo is the newest addition to team F(x)tec, and will work as our in-house engineer for Linux and mainline support, as well as adaptations and functionality of alternative OS’s for your devices. 

Thank you for your ongoing contribution and support to the Pro1-X Indiegogo campaign! As always, If you have any questions or queries do not hesitate to drop us an email at [email protected]!

 Team F(x)tec

This is the first time I didn't get an email of the update. 😕

That is odd, I got an automated one sent from indiegogo 11 hours ago. So either some mail-filter is teasing, or indiegogo no longer have you on their mailing list, I highly doubt that this rather small group gets it sent out spread over that many hours.,

Yeah, not in my spam box.  I'll chalk it up for now to some blip in the internet, like dryers eating socks.  😉

Same here.

Anyway, e-mail is generally not the most reliable form of communication, so anything may happen with it...
Fortunately, this forum has also warns the user from another user. 😄

Maybe you need to unsubscribe and re-subscribe, to trigger it again? (on IGG click you account-name top left, Settings, and then the Emails tab)

If I had bought $700 USD in Bitcoin instead of this phone (which I still do not have) in Feb 2020, I would have over $2800 right now.

Try to be optimistic. Money is not everything. I paid my Pro1 (without the "X") also more than a year before I finally got it. Now that I have a real keyboard phone, I congratulate myself for the decision to preorder every day.

That is pure hindsight bias. It is useless to look behind. Of course you would have made money if you knew back then what courses are today. If you would have bought XTZBEAR Coins for that money you would have like 0.02 $ right now...
