[Updated] Made In Germany - the Linshof i8 is an upcoming $380 octa-core flagship with 80GB of internal storage
Moving on, the Linshof i8 has 80GB of internal storage, which is an unusual number. How so? Linshof used one standard 64GB chip and an additional 16GB module, "dedicated to apps" and "clocked much faster than usual". Both modules are supplied by SanDisk. The smartphone is powered by a 32-bit octa-core 2.1GHz processor paired with 3GB of "fast clocked RAM". As the final specs could change ahead of the Q1 2015 release date (which happens all the time), Linshof opted not to elaborate right now.
Moving along, there is a 13MP rear camera with a 28mm wide-angle lens, F1.8 aperture value for low-light photography, and a Sony CMOS sensor. The front camera is an 8MP unit, but we all know it takes more than megapixels to take that perfect selfie.
A seriously custom phone with a very competitive price
The package is rounded out by Android 5.0 Lollipop, topped off with either Linshof's custom "hardware-accelerated" UI, or an optional touch-based Linux build, which is still in early works. The UI looks like a cross between Windows Phone and Samsung TouchWiz, showing familiar tiles, fonts, and color choices. The software keys are redesigned and positioned bottom left, while the status bar appears to their right, which is an unusual arrangement.
A 3100mAh battery drives the phone, which also offers GPS, Bluetooth v4.0, an electronic compass, a gyroscope, HDMI 1.4 support with 3D, NFC and WiFi/LTE (4G).
How much will you pay for all that? The Linshof i8 is priced at $380 unlocked, which is a very competitive price. It is expected to ship in Q1 2015. For tablet fans, a 10-inch Linshof tablet with the same design language and specs, save for a 2048x1536 display and 9000mAh battery will be available around the same time.
