Where is the radio transmitter or logic board or anything? If anything this has 2 screen and 2 cameras on both sides and is simulating transparency like digital-camo, otherwise this is a hoax or just a joke image. Look closly at the image below.zoom in, it looks like 2 pieces of plexiglass glued to gether, even the "1" in the center is glued onto the glass, look at the top left/right corners. There is no interface for the SDCard, no control/logic boards.
I could have made this with crap laying in my garage and a broken smart phone.... I can't believe how many outlets ran this story..
The fact that the 'prototype' is so obviously hacked together makes me think its more than a fake report
For transparent connections between components I was thinking fibre optics maybe, but there would still need to be some sort of mechanism to catch and release the MicroSD
Plus it looks like soldered ends to the MicroUSB port too
I can't see it being a working prototype, possibly a mock up of what they imagine it to look like
