The ‘smartphone’ that would have triumphed in the 70s | Hello, we are honor

Apart from revolutionizing disco music, the movie ‘Saturday Night Fever’ created a trend. The image of Tony Manero, the character played by John Travolta, drew a magnetic prototype. Nothing so copied had been known since the Beatles hairstyle: Manero wore colored shirts with ultra-long collars over the jacket, ruffles, a white suit with tight flared trousers. Many imitated the way he dressed (and danced, forefinger pointing to the ceiling) on ​​Saturday nights, beyond North America. 45 years have passed since that cinematographic and social phenomenon that grew to the rhythm of the Bee Gees and Tavares.

It can be said that the basis of today’s nightclubs still has a lot to do with those of the 70s. The big difference (apart from the rhythm and clothing, of course) is the presence of the mobile phone on the tables and on the dance floor: the personal camera strip smartphone to immortalize the moment, to toast or to share the video of a dance on social networks.

What would/would have been a mobile phone in Travolta’s time? Surely it would have a lot to do with HONOR 70, with its campaign that honors that decade. It incorporates, in addition to the latest technology in batteries and triple cameras, an unmistakable and original design that makes it truly unique, but also something beyond what can be seen with the naked eye, and that is flow from the 70s, in any of the three colors available: Midnight Black, Emerald Green and Crystal Silver with a frosted effect, with a brilliant cut, similar to the tesserae that make up disco balls, halfway between retro and the most rabid trend.

The colors in which the model is offered and the frosting on the front fit perfectly with the brightness that prevailed in that decade.

To the touch, the device is very pleasant, thanks to its dual curved screen with rounded shapes. Travolta would have had no problem carrying it in the pocket (it barely weighs 178 grams) of the famous three-piece white suit that she combined with that black shirt with collars of pelican: to achieve the 28-inch waist required for the character (and costume) created for the film, he had to undergo rigid dietary sacrifices.

Perhaps he would have published the secrets of that magical diet in stories, thanks to the surprising optics of this mobile: in addition to a 54MP main camera (with seductive double ring design), it has another 32MP front camera called SuperSelfie. Identifies 1.07 billion colors and 4,096 levels of brightness, and has a dual electronic image stabilizer, proof of dance for TikTok and spinning disco lights. In video mode, the system auto tracking detects the most electrical movements.

The ideal complement for them and them

Travolta’s partner in fiction, Stephanie Mangano, the character brought to life by Karen Lyn Gorney (and who represented a separate point in her career), would have it easier to save the smartphone in the hand pocket. After all, accessories have not evolved as much as clothing designs. Furthermore, the HONOR 70 measures just 161.4 millimeters.

Stephanie would hesitate between the colors Black or Crystal Silver, ideal to combine with the 1930s-style maroon ruffled dress. Both that one-color piece and the blue bodysuit over leggings that he used in rehearsals would be difficult to assume today in the eyes of designers, but they also raised a certain trail among the twentysomethings of the 70s. While they adopted a classy but tacky macarrilla style, that of the girls was more kitsch.

Outside the tracks, Tony Manero was an employee of a paint store, and of his dancer’s clothing he only kept the gold chains around his neck. With an HONOR 70 he could have expedited his appointments for dance competitions, but also orders and job assignments. Stephanie, an office worker in Manhattan, commuted to work by subway, where, instead of overseeing the digital press or social media in an HONOR 70, in the 70s she read New York Times sheet size

daily actions with smartphone that were unthinkable in 1977, when the film was released. And that a rudimentary mobile phone prototype had already been tested, four years earlier, also in New York. It weighed almost a kilo and was about 33 centimeters tall, including the antenna. The contraption took about ten hours to charge and its battery allowed a range of only 30 minutes. Today, the lightweight HONOR 70 carries a 4800mAh6 super battery, which manages to charge from 0% to 60% in just 20 minutes. The time has changed. Or… not so much?
