Designer Christophe Simeon has sent us a great concept, the Samsung Galaxy NxT, which is basically a 5.5 inch phablet with a sliding keyboard mechanism. It reminds me of the ASUS Eee Pad Slider and the Nokia E7, as far as the sliding mechanism goes.
The device is also pretty hot and it does look a bit like the Galaxy S4 and S3. The specs are pretty good and the way the QWERTY keyboard is integrated is very original and discrete. Samsung Galaxy NxT measures 8.6 mm, which is very good for a QWERTY keyboard phone. Its case uses titanium, glass and rubber and it also includes 2 microphones, stereo speakers and a 5.55 inch Full HD display.
At the back there’s a 16 megapixel camera with Xenon flash and upfront a 3 megapixel shooter, both with infrared illuminator. We’ve also got the usual Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA, microSD and NFC and microHDMI (bi directional) is also here. Qi inductive charging is present and sadly the designer didn’t mention the CPU or RAM. I guess it’s probably an Exynos 5 Octa and 2 GB of DDR3 RAM, if you ask me.
The keyboard is a 4 row QWERTY, that’s very compact and user friendly. Quite a fantastic work from Cristophe, so congrats on that! There are more Samsung concepts from him, so stay tuned!
