Echo brand with a new Horizon model hits the EU market


French brand Echo just sent over some info regarding a new smartphone that is coming into the market very soon. The device is namely called Horizon and it will be featuring a really attractive 18:9 display aspect ratio display at the front and two high quality rear cameras on the back to grab those neat bokeh shots we love to see. They also sent us a short teaser video you can watch down below.

Specs wise, the Echo Horizon will be coming with a large 5.7-inch IPS display sporting HD resolution (1440×720) and the fancy 18:9 display aspect ratio, which should satisfy all your media consumption needs while keeping bezels to the minimum. The elegant display also appears to be curved on the sides Samsung S8-style, meanwhile on the back we find a fashionable glass panel with the two high quality rear cameras in the mid-top part of the phone and fingerprint scanner.

Since we’re talking about cameras, you’ll be glad to know the Horizon is coming with a main 16MP rear shooter, which should by itself capture great images, but with the added secondary 2MP sensor you’ll be able to snap photos with the trendy bokeh effect. On the front we instead find a still high resolution 8MP selfie shooter accompanied by a 2MP to recreate the same blurry background in selfies as well.
