Only a few features have been revealed so a lot of questions remained unanswered. Well, the following video will answer some of them. Just watch!

As you can see, the 5-inch tablet concept Mini 5 is not only a MID but a smartphone as well. It would be awkward to talk on a thing as huge as that but luckily, it packs a standard 3.5mm audio jack so a headset is always welcome.

It’s sleek and thinner than what the photos so far suggested. The Vivaz is actually quite quick to snap them 8 megapixel photos, but its key selling point will definitely be the 720p HD video recording. The Vivaz is the second HD-recording cameraphone and all hopes are that it will do better than the pioneering Omnia HD. From what we’ve seen so far, the prospects are quite good. At least it doesn’t duplicate any frames and delivers all 24 frames worth of HD footage.

Blacks are immensely deep, the colors are vivid and the viewing angles are mind-boggling. Here’s it compared to the iPhone 3G (both screens set at maximum brightness):

We can’t tell you what phone it is just yet but it surely has one hell of a display. We haven’t seen anything like that.

Update: that’s actually the Samsung Wave display up there. You can check our full preview of the thing here here. Read more »
