One of our local electronics companies SKK Mobile has just officially announced a brand new android smartphone offering with a "twist". The SKK Mobile Flip is the new phone I am talking about, and what's the catch with this device? As the name suggests, it sports a rotating 8MP main camera.
Smartphones with rotating cameras are actually not new in this industry as we have seen this from Oppo and Torque already. However seeing this kind of system on other brands like SKK Mobile is a nice thing for us consumers especially for those who love taking photos but on a tight budget. SKK Mobile has not announced the pricing yet but I think it's going to be a very affordable one, after all SKK Mobile is known for offering budget friendly devices with decent power and features.
Let's see what other things we can get apart from having a nice looking flippable camera. It has a quite big 5-inch qHD display which I think is still a pretty standard for smartphones of today. Then on the inside are the quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, partnered with a 512MB of RAM and a 4GB internal storage. This storage is still an expandable one, as always for an SKK Mobile phone, for up to 64GB.
Android 4.4.2 mobile OS runs on this phone right out of the box with support for 3G data connectivity. If you also use more than one SIM card, then you are also covered with this handset's dual SIM capability. See more specs below.

This SKK Mobile Flip houses a big 2,500mAh battery pack and it should be enough to last for a whole day from light to moderate usage. As of posting, there is no word yet on its suggested retail price when it hits the wild and when this will be officially released. I will let you guys know when SKK Mobile releases this or you may follow then on their Facebook page to get direct updates from them.
