Sony Xperia Pro X Concept with Secondary Tactus Display

There are people who still loves to have a physical keypad on there Smartphone. With the large number of new brands and models coming to market, physical QWERTY keypads are getting far from the mobile devices. Touch screen era has just started. For some reasons typing on a touch screen isn't that comfortable as in a physical keypad. Tactus, a screen manufacture already looking for an answer to this problem. Finally they have introduced a touch screen that pops out it buttons from the screen. hard to believe? check out the video at the end of this post.
The Sony Xperia Pro X concept is inspired by the Tactus technology and i want to give a solution for physical keypad and gamepad lovers. CES 2013 ended up with new hopes for future technology. Xperia Pro X features some great specs which are introduced at CES this year.

Starting from the front side, It's the new Sony look with rectangular design we saw in Xperia Z and ZL. I really loved it due to less bezel used. Sony engineers claims that many people tend to show their face adjust to bottom of the screen when do a video conference call. So placing the front camera at the bottom seems odd but it has good advantages. Only differences i made were placing a small microphone middle of the bottom and moving the LED notification light to top.

Full List of Outstanding Features of Xperia Pro X

The main 5" screen is protected with the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and gives super clear image quality using new Mobile Bravia Engine 2. Concept features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Quad Core CPU which is annonced last week. This CPU can clocked up to 2.3GHz and has a brand new Adreno 330 GPU which is two times powerful than Adreno 320 GPU. This could be the first concept to feature a Snapdragon 800 CPU.

Same Camera with 13 Mega Pixel Exmor RS sensor is used here along with a dual LED flash. Since the device is made with sliding form factor, you will get the secondary Tactus Display when you slide out the main screen panel. Fortunately Tactus screens consume less energy and shapes and sizes of the poping out buttons can be customized. This helps to have a multi-purpose physical like keypad on the same screen.
Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean will power the device with Sony spiced new Timescape UI. Battery capacity should be higher as we have two screens to power up.

Back side is simple, nothing special except for the dual LED flash and loudspeaker grill at the bottom. 

 As you can see in the above image, the Tactus display pops out the buttons when we are in a suitable application or window to do some typing. The poped out buttons gives a real physical keypad experience to the user.

For mobile gamers out there, Tactus screen will gives you a good gamepad to have a console like experience. This reassembles Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Xperia Pro together as a Hybrid version powered with latest technology.
