Specs are also crazy good, including a 5 inch UHD display with POLED panel, as well as an octa core 20 nm chip clocked at 3 GHz, a 64 bit unit by the way. There’s 4 GB of RAM included, up to 128 GB of storage, a 13 MP Lytro camera with OIS and 4K Video capture, plus 4G LTE and Bluetooth 4.1. An interesting feature, also detailed in the video below is the carbon-based super capacitor that offers 2 days of battery life with a 30 minute charge.

The designers also promise to integrate a vibration transducer speaker system, that turns any flat surface into a large speaker, enhancing the acoustics. The actual design involves a slab of glass and two main metal portions, with modular parts inserted like SD cards at the top and bottom of the glass pieces.
