Unihertz TickTock With Secondary Screen Starts Crowdfunding Today

Unihertz, the phone manufacturer that's mostly known for bringing back phones with physical QWERTY keyboards, just kicked off its Kickstarter campaign today for its latest smartphone.

Called the Unihertz TickTock, the Tick Tock refers to e pretty unique secondary screen on the back of the smartphone, that can be set up with different watch faces, or many other screen features, from answering calls, briefly glancing at messages, and so on, on a round 1.3-inch screen.

Unihertz TickTock has a few other features too, primarily that it's rugged and that it features two physical buttons you can program to whatever you like.

Main specs are a 6.5-inch front screen with 2340 x 1080 resolution, 360 x 360 resolution for the secondary screen, a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor with 5G, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage, a 48MP camera, and a 6000 mAh battery.

Can a smartphone such as this one stand a chance against all the other smartphones out there today? I'm sure it will fulfill its crowdfunding goal at least. But more than that, it's fun to watch someone do something bold against the mainstream.
