Torque might not be the original company to use rotating cameras on smartphones but its latest one, the Droidz Axis, pairs the technology with a huge display (7 inches!) and a low price of ₱5,799.00.

It can be argued that the Torque Droidz Axis is already a tablet. However, Torque says it’s a phablet and highlights the two SIM card slots on the device.

The rotating camera is an 8MP snapper with autofocus and an accompanying LED flash. Meanwhile, the 7-inch screen has an unusual resolution of 768 x 1366 pixels which is more commonly seen in laptops.

The Torque Droidz Axis is powered by a 1.2GHz quad core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and boots to Android 4.4 Kitkat. It also has 3G connectivity, 8GB of storage space and a microSD card slot.

The Torque Droidz Axis is very similar to the Chuwi DX1 from China. 

Perhaps, the main disadvantage with this device is its battery which is reportedly rated at 1,850mAh only. That won’t last long considering the large screen.
