Great things ahead? (8th May '18 -> Transparent Slim Covers)

Have you visited “www.fairphone.com” lately? If you go to the starting page (enter the address like this) you will find a somewhat cryptic picture. And in the end the hint that something will be revealed on 8th May. New case? FP3?
Very exciting…

Did you scratch the picture?
I think it’s pretty clear what it means, but I won’t share my “guess” since I already know. :wink:

If it is that what I guess it is, I’d loved to see it on my phone :slight_smile:

At long last … 100% fair yellow nail polish :slight_smile: .

That must be it. In the first picture they experienced with fair yellow fingerlings as a replacement for nail polish, but in the second one they had a breakthrough. :smiley:
But do you think it comes in dark red too?

Btw, I just scratched the picture on the computer and it took so much longer than on the Fairphone. So maybe the announcement is: The new Fairphone will be much faster than a high-end computer. :wink:

That wouldn’t need a reveal because those fingers aren’t as subtly hidden as the yellow ones :wink: .

Hmmm … did you notice the scratching auto-completes suddenly when you got to a certain point? Perhaps the phone will be able to auto-complete tedious tasks for you once you started to do them :slight_smile: .

I also noticed the phones have been cut out of the second picture.
Maybe the announcement is simply that Fairphone will stop producing phones.

You’re right … if you click on “Buy now” here currently …

… you get a “Not found” page :slight_smile: .

Edit: The German buying page still works, so they will not stop everything, but just stop selling in English-speaking markets :slight_smile: .

Edit2: The English page was fixed and works again.

So, next theory … a 100% fair clothing line in the well-known slim case colours, with extra work being put into white getting stained grey right after being put on … and transparent perhaps still to come :slight_smile:

So everybody who is still interested in a Fairphone should get used to saying Gerechthandy.

Oh, I oversaw that. So I revealed a secret ahead of time? I am so sorry.

Well, Gerechthandy is in no however construed way a valid German word anyway, so how about www.fairestelefon.de? That domain is registered and gives a 403 Forbidden :wink: .

Well, I can’t call “registered” to a domain owned by a domain company

My guess is a transparent slim case, as well. Just look at the transparency of the uncovered image. The clear-phone has the shape of a FP2, so the idea of a FP3 is discarded, and the first picture is clearly case-oriented: someone assembling slim cases…

I disagree. It is surely going to be an invisible phone, as the images show, with which GerechtHandy will provide a brand new gimmick to the market.

Woa! You are right! That was brilliant and pretty obvious!

Fairphone, you clever and twisted people!

Now I got it: The picture clearly shows a phone that let’s you see the past (the old picture). #timetravelphone. :smiley:
