The Rotom Telephone is getting a giant improve. Following its introduction within the Galar area three years in the past, the up to date model of the smartphone-that’s-inhabited-by-a-Pokémon is lastly making the leap from one again digicam to 2. The handset will quickly be obtainable within the new Paldea area as properly.
It’s tough to inform precisely what sort the second lens is for — all I can actually see is that the primary lens stays blue whereas the brand new second lens is black. I don’t assume that’s sufficient data to make an knowledgeable guess about whether or not this new lens is a telephoto, an ultrawide, or one thing else, although I’m hoping I’ll be capable of use that second digicam to take footage of the brand new greatest boy Fidough.
Past that, it looks as if this new Rotom Telephone is a largely iterative improve from the earlier one. One new characteristic is a mysterious glowing blue ring in the course of the system. Possibly that’s for wi-fi charging? The ring is ready just about precisely the place you’d count on a wi-fi charging coil to be, in any case. Although I don’t keep in mind ever having to cost the Rotom Telephone in Galar, I suppose it’s good that wi-fi charging could possibly be an possibility whereas I’m at considered one of Paldea’s coach faculties.
Disappointingly, the massive factors on the highest and backside of the Rotom Telephone have caught round for this subsequent technology. Which means it’s in all probability nonetheless not snug to slide into your pocket, however in Paldea, backpacks appear to be all the trend — I suppose I’ll have to select one up as a spot to stash my cellphone. (Possibly sometime we’ll get a Rotom Telephone Mini.)
No phrase on 5G assist, which might make it simpler to remain in contact with your folks when you’re touring throughout Paldea. However I actually hope the race to 5G doesn’t turn out to be a factor in Paldea prefer it has in different areas.
The firm that makes the Rotom Telephone confirmed in a press launch that the Pokédex and a map will as soon as once more be loaded on the system. However we’ll have to attend and see what different new performance is perhaps obtainable till we are able to attempt the brand new Rotom Telephone for ourselves on November 18th.
