There are so many things and pieces of information that they should update and share with us at this point, such as

Yes, there are. 

Then again, history is just repeating itself here. Fxtec's information habits were similar between announcement, development, and the several production and shipment phases of the original Pro1. While that doesn't help anyone and doesn't make anything better, it means any implications like they "ran out of funds" or "lost interest" are not warranted. Yes, it's the abominable way they've been doing communications right from the start – nothing less, but nothing more, either.

Production does indeed seem to be starting...  

This just came in for those who ordered on the web:

If anything, that makes things even worse.

I havent been around since the Pro1, so I will have to take your word for it, but if its true that they really have no will or intention of ever getting better in the communications department, I fear its all on them for making half of their paying customers angry and disappointed, while leaving the other half in total darkness, just hoping for the best, because "it went well last time"..

It may sound like a rant, but thats not what its intended to be, I am just trying to express exactly how important I think communications is for a business this small, aiming for this niche market, with a finite number of potential customers. They really should step up their game, if they want to stay in business..

I personally feel the same, but they might have their good reasons for prioritising using their limited resources elsewhere - we can only guess here.

Pro1-X March Manufacturing Update

wqesp4uxktgi622b7d08.jpg

 

Dear Pro1-X backers,

 

Here is a quick update regarding Pro1-X mass manufacturing:

 

Shenzhen is now out of lockdown and the factory reopened for business on Monday. We have also now booked the final assembly slot, ready to begin mass manufacturing your Pro1-X’s!

 

  • Our staff have been granted permission to travel to work, but only if they have a 48-hour negative Covid pass. As they are still short-staffed, the factory has been undergoing some housekeeping and recruitment procedures to get enough workers ready for mass manufacturing.

 

  • We have now re-booked our assembly slot. This was originally due to begin on Saturday 26th March, however, new regulations now prohibit working over the weekend. This means that the trial assembly process will officially begin on Monday 28th March.

 

  • The trial assembly process will help us to detect and resolve potential problems within the assembly line before we begin mass manufacturing. This will also ensure that the end product quality meets our high standards and expectations. Once this has been completed, we will finally be ready for mass manufacturing and shipping! 

 

  • We will send round a further update next week to show you the Pro1-X assembly line and also confirm the final shipping and delivery timeline. 

 

Thank you for your continued patience and support. 

 

Team Fxtec 🙂

Chinese manufacture will only get worse in the future.  Everything that can be moved out of that country, the better.

 

Still waiting to see if things start shipping prior to placing an order.  Not going to put $900 out there only to have it disappear.

If I hadnt backed one on their indiegogo campaign while I was still under the impression it was not going to be sold in their store, I would have also waited to see how things were going before making up my mind. I think its a good decision that makes alot of sense.

If history repeat itself, FXtec starts manufacturing and shipping alright and some people actually report having received their phones. But then before they can finish all the pending phones they have to stop because of  Chinese New Year during which a major crisis breaks in China and stops all manufacturing.

This is actually my biggest fear right now, so lets please hope that history is NOT repeating itself in this case. :)

No, don't say that, please. I was still under the impression that the "before Christmas" that was communicated for my Pro1 in 2019 will at least hold true for 2022!!

We can not wait to ramp up production and finally start shipping your Pro1-X's.

An FCC page has been also published yesterday of Pro1-X FCC approval - see here.

Pro1's internal name is QX1000 (this is what also included in camera's EXIF info) and Pro1-X's internal name will be QX1050.

There is a confidentiality request which tells internal and external photos, test setup photos and user manual will be available after 180 days.

I'm not sure, but all the dates are 2019.  Seems to me this is the original Pro1?

Are you looking at the right link? Some individual parts might be identical, and thus have older dates though.

Here an example of a new one. Taken from the header of the first on the list:

Note especially the fourth from the bottom, that despite being called "Label and Label Location" is actually the interior photographs. (the actual label is a bit above on the list)

I haven't checked all documents but you are right - it may be a mistake anyway but it does not really matter I think. 🙂
I wanted to check internal photos anyway...

Definitively no.
You may also check documents for Pro1 here and I see main PCB and USB board are definitively different.

Anyway, it was the unit sent for FCC approval especially for Pro1-X, it should nothing to do with Pro1 (these are completely different units in this aspect).

So, it's weird.  Your interior photographs link takes me to the right place, the QX1050 interior photos under "label and label." But VaZso's link takes me to the QX1000 page, which seems to be the Pro1,  If I go to the top bread crumb, FX Technology Limited, I see the QX1050 link with the 2022 date, but when I click on the QX1050 link, I am also taken to the QX1000 page, which is the Pro1.  I can't find any link that takes me from the QX1000 page to the page with the interior of the QX1050 that you posted and if I click the QX1050 breadcrumb link on that page, I am back on the QX1000 page.

So, I don't know exactly what's going on at my end that is different from your end.  And maybe there is a lot of reuse from the QX1000, but I cannot find the uniquely QX1050 links.

Upshot, however, in spite of whatever I am doing wrong, I believe QX1000 is the Pro1 and QX1050 is the Pro1x

Anyway, good news, and I'll leave it at that. I'm  easily confused.  😉

My very first message contained link for QX1050 and second was for comparison with QX1000.

That's the url, but that's not where it takes me.  Takes me to the QX1000 page.  <shrug>  That is, the url  https://fccid.io/2AUCLQX1050   forwards me to  https://fccid.io/2AUCLQX1000

If it does differently for you, I'm stumped.

I don't know why it forwards you to QX1000 but it works for me also using my phone. 🙂

I am speaking about this message:

So there was a strange behaviour somewhere...

Very interesting.  Your link does what I say in both FireFox and Edge on my laptop (which is where I've been reading this forum), but your link works perfectly in FireFox or Fulguris on my Moto phone (Pro1 is still in shop).  Have no clue.  But not a big deal  enough to keep at it.  Just puzzling.  🙂
