World gets its first phone with no physical buttons - Manta 7x

Details of the Manta 7x were recently revealed giving us a view at what would be the world's first Android phone with no physical buttons. The phone consists of a touch sensitive bezel which senses where your thumb is placed and displays information accordingly. This could either be the incoming call details which are displayed in a small box or the menu buttons.
Running on Android 4.4.4 based Manta OS, the phone has lots to offer. Touted as one of the most innovative phones from China that has not been inspired by any of their other manufacturer counterparts, the phone packs a punch that we hope it can deliver.
The phone is available for preorder and would ship worldwide. The highpoint of the phone is its 4200 mAH jaw dropping battery that was until now heard of only in Tablet Devices. However, such specs come at a price. The phone would retail at 4080 yuan, (approximately $650) making it one among the few very expensive to own devices.
