Acer's DX650: but why the two screens?

Images of the phone – thought to be called the DX650 – were uncovered by website Tinh-te. It said the double-sided device has a 2.8in screen on one side and a 1.2in monochrome OLED on the other – which sits just above a numerical keypad.

The secondary screen’s intended use is unclear, but the image shows that the phone’s set-up for Edge connections and able to play audio files. A camera lens also sits beside the secondary screen.

A touch-sensitive main screen?

It’s reasonable to assume that the main screen’s touch-sensitive – given the lack of any keys on that side of the phone.

Additional images also show that the phone has a scrollwheel embedded in one side, a Micro SD card slot, a camera shortcut key and micro USB port. GPS is present too.

A camera and scroll wheel can also be seen

A possible launch date or price for the Acer DX650 hasn’t been discovered, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for the phone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week. ®
