Japanese home appliance brand Balmuda is launching its first smartphone and they're avoiding the phablet route with a more ergonomic solution. The shape of the phone is curved and compact to fit better in the hand while making the most of its form factor to pack in a 4.9" display. The Android-powered smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor, a 48MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera, 5G connectivity, IPX4 water and dust-resistance, and a 2,500mAh battery.
The Balmuda phone is currently only available in Japan and no plans have been announced for a global release.
