The always dynamic smartphone market will soon get a new rather interesting product – a smartphone model with 80 GB of internal memory. The device will be made by the German company Linshof and will be called i8. According to Linshof, the smartphone will offer premium hardware at a mid-range price.
The first pictures of the i8 show a device that sports a metallic chassis with skewed corners and a large 5-inch Super AMOLED display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels). The smartphone is also reported to include an unknown 8-core processor at 2.1 GHz, 3 GB of RAM and 80 GB of internal memory.
This is achieved in the following interesting way – there’s 64 GB of internal memory that serves for long term data storage and then additional 16 GB of memory that is much faster and helps start apps. A bit later the same smartphone will be available with 144 GB of internal memory.
The Linshof i8 will also have a number of other features – a 13 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front camera, a GPS module, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, NFC, LTE, HDMI 1.4, a USB port and more. The device will run the latest version of Android – Lollipop 5.0 with Linshof UI.
The new German smartphone will reach the market in Q1 2015. In the USA it will sell for USD 380. Then in Q2 2015 the version with 144 GB of memory will appear. This version will be called Linshof i8 Space.
