Nowadays, choosing a new smartphone comes down 99.9% of the time to the relationship between the level of specifications and the price of the device. Despite the controversies and major scandals that involve the security and privacy of users’ personal data, they still do not seem to have their security as a priority.
This is the flagship of F (x) tec, a smartphone manufacturer based in London that has entered into an important partnership with the XDA Developers website to launch its new smartphone, the Pro 1-X. This is a smartphone that, above all, was designed so that users have full control over their privacy and can themselves guarantee the security of their data.
Still, it has quite interesting specifications and presents some interesting choices. It is currently available through an official campaign on the IndieGogo platform with various price levels:
- Limited Edition – € 543
- Pre-early Bird – € 577
- Early Bird (6GB + 128GB) – € 552
- Early Bird (8GB + 256GB) – € 611
Key features that make the Pro 1-X so special
The first highlight for the Pro 1-X is the possibility to choose which operating system you prefer installed at the factory. For now, it will be possible to choose between LineageOS, Android Pure or Ubuntu Touch. In addition, it also comes with an HDMI output so you can connect your smartphone to a monitor and get the most out of Ubuntu Touch OS.
Like its predecessor, the Pro 1-X also comes with a sliding physical QWERTY keyboard, perfect for all users who are not fans of creating large texts using touch keyboards. This keyboard also allows tasks to be performed using the screen without any obstruction, as well as multi-window tasks.
In the case of LineageOS, it remains one of the most popular alternatives to traditional Android, as it offers users the ability to incredibly control privacy options, sharing only what they really want to share. What’s more, this operating system is renowned for giving smartphones incredible longevity with updates that span many years.
