Two weeks ago to the day, we told you about the Unihertz Titan. This is a sturdy Android-powered phone with a physical QWERTY keyboard that resembles the one on the BlackBerry Passport. The latter featured a unique combination of physical and virtual keys, and many appreciated the size of the keyboard on that phone along with the 4.5-inch 1440 x 1440 display and its passport-sized form factor. However, the Passport is powered by BlackBerry's own operating system which is why there has been a call by some Passport fans for an Android-powered model.

So in steps manufacturer Unihertz with the Titan. The Android-powered phone will be launched soon on Kickstarter, according to the company's website. While there, you can sign up to receive an early-bird discount to pay as low as $199 for the handset. What we know about the Titan is that it is equipped with a 4.5-inch LCD display carrying a 1440 x 1440 resolution. The Snapdragon 835 chipset, two generations old, will be under the hood. There is a massive 6000mAh battery inside the unit, which also features wireless charging, Dual SIM capabilities, a fingerprint scanner, facial recognition and IP67 certification for dust and water resistance. There is also support for global 4G LTE and NFC connectivity.

On Friday, Unihertz dropped a YouTube video that shows the Titan being, well, dropped itself. And it is obvious from the tag line that Unihertz is marketing the device to consumers and businesses as a rugged productivity tool. So what is this tag line? "Titan. The phone for people who get shit done." We aren't likely to see this on a billboard soon, although we appreciate the company's passion for its new smartphone.
