THE NGM FORWARD NEXT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED
NGM Forward Next Overview
The Forward Next is an innovative design from NGM with a standout feature - the pivoting camera. Not only is the camera itself a top-quality 13 Megapixel module, it has been installed in a rotating bar on the top of the Next. Clicking into place to hold steady, you can flip the camera to take 13MP shots with an LED flash, both front or back.
Take the perfect selfies every time
Alongside the truly versatile camera, there is also an added application: 'LOOK ME'. This turns the phone into a digital mirror with zoom and additional effects to get the best results. With the 13MP camera flipped to the front, never again will you get a grainy, underlit selfie from a low quality front facing camera, or even have to turn the phone around better for quality and hope for the best angle!
There's more than just the camera to be wowed about when it comes to the Forward Next. NGM have made use of next generation IGZO screen technology, developed by Sharp. Consuming an estimated 80-90% less power than conventional mobile screen technologies, IGZO could save you several hours of battery consumption. Lower level users might even get a whole extra day.
IGZO works by being able to retain images even without power to the whole screen, dynamically altering the power levels required and requiring less effort to update or alter when you transition to environments with different brightness or glare.
As a final addition, toughened Dragontrail glass has been used to cover the screen, protecting against scratches and shocks without adding bulk, and retaining high touch sensivity.
True octa-core processing
NGM has included the MediaTek MT6592 ARM Cortex-A7 processor in the Forward Next. Clocked at 1.7GHz and capable of intelligently managing the power for each task, the MT6592 not only improves speed and efficiency, it should also decrease battery consumption for common tasks. Processor temperature and power consumption are automatically monitored to ensure optimum performance.
Gamers need not worry either, the MT6592 features the quad-core ARM Mail graphics engine, with full HD display controller, so compatibility with the newest titles is available. Unlike 'octa-core' processors from some other manufacturers, the MT6592 is a true 8-core chip, rather than 2 separate quad-core chips installed in tandem.
The Forward Next includes Smart Gestures to interpret motion commands - control without even touching the screen.
NGM has also developed a number of 'Special Functions', available across their smartphone ranges. Exact installations differ across the models, with the main aim being to improve the user experience, and ease of use. NGM Special Functions include Blacklist (block numbers) and Whitelist (only receive from these numbers) functions, plus a Coffer and Firewall to partition and protect data.
Other Special Functions include delayed / timed text messaging, blocking anonymous / unknown numbers, SIM-binding to automatically alert 'trusted numbers' if a new SIM is inserted and even the ability to play pre-recorded background sounds to a recipient during a call.
