And if you happen to have more pics,
either more render of what are your current expectations of the device,
or pictures of the current test-bed,
we would also be happy to see them !

Thanks for your work.

We are designing the LED position, Sim slot without a tool, battery mount etc, and most importantly the keypad layout.

I will update more pics as soon as they are solidly confirmed.

LED is cool. It's an extinct dinosaur feature but still a cool useful feature. If it can be blue, white, green and yellow it's even cooler. It would be like n900.

I wouldn't call it extinct, OnePlus 3 has it. But true, for the Instagram crowd a selfie flash is much more important.

This is not my dream phone either but it has a potential as is to be better than anything else on the market.
From what I've seen, Chen is quite pragmatic and knows what is feasable and what is just crazy. I trust his judgement on what to include to make this product a success and I think you should too.

That said it is interesting to read about other ideas aside from the continual discussions over screen size and keyboard layouts.

What do you think about including a camera cover (like in the N900?)

Even "work in progress pictures" would be an interesting insight into the design progress.

Btw: what are considering? A LED wih some specific protocol piloted over GPIO ? Or a LED using I2C ?

Also, "double tap to wake" (as featured on the original Jolla 1 and several other tablet and smartphones) was mentioned a few posts back. Is it something that would be possible (given your selected chipset and board) ?
I find it useful to quickly wake the phone to check status (charging, etc.)

I think chen's point in coming to this forum isn't implementing every single mentioned idea into a 3000 costing phone, but more as a place to brainstorm to work on idea and finally producing the device that *he* thinks is the best balance of features.

That said it is interesting to read about other ideas aside from the continual discussions over screen size and keyboard layouts.
I find these discussions very enriching too.
And i learned something about Tritium... :-P

Whats the deal with xenon-Flashes on phones nowadays?
I havent seen a device with one in a while.
Are LED-flashes good enough nowadays?

My only experience with a xenon flash was on the 808, and it's module was huge. Chen seems to have shown some concern with keep the device slim, which would be hard to do with a module that large.
