Planet Computers announces the Cosmo Communicator, a pocketable clamshell smartphone with dual touchscreen displays and a physical backlit keyboard. It is available to back now via its new Indiegogo campaign.
Cosmo is designed to be a true all-in-one communicator – with dual 4G connectivity and a high-resolution camera. It is powerful enough to be the only device that you need to carry and small enough to fit in your pocket.
Cosmo is the second handset developed by Planet Computers, following the success of the Gemini PDA in 2017 – which raised more than $2.5 million in investment via the company’s Indiegogo campaign and shipped to backers all around the world.
The Gemini reimagined the PDA form-factor for 21st century users. Cosmo has several additional features catering for the modern smartphone audience. The Cosmo features a full backlit physical keyboard, a primary 6” colour and an external 2” colour touchscreen, a 24 MP external camera, fingerprint sensor, NFC capability and 4G connectivity.
Powered by an 8-Core Mediatek P70 processor, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory (extendable via a microSD card), Cosmo has a uniquely designed chassis that now includes two support feet for the hinge when the device is open.
Dr Janko Mrsic-Flogel, CEO of Planet Computers, comments: “The success of the Gemini PDA in 2017 showed us the demand for a personal digital assistant remains strong. However, today’s communication needs are changing as people’s lives become more digital and complex.
“In the process of developing a new device to extend our handset range, we asked our users what features they wanted to have and we listened; the result is Cosmo – a dual-screen smartphone with a powerful camera and all the benefits of a clamshell pocketable computer. Cosmo extends our range of handsets, which continues to include the Gemini PDA. We will develop and improve the software suite across all of our devices – including updates to Sailfish 3 and Android 8 (Oreo) for the Gemini.”
