State of the art. Kinda.

A Sony flip phone from 2000 running Android 9

A remarkable feat:

Of course whatever processor and electronics the phone came with are long gone, and instead the phone sports the internals of a modern Chinese watch-smartphone grafted in in place of the original. The whole electronics package fits in the screen opening, and though it required some wiring for the USB-C socket and a few other parts it looks for all the world from the outside as though it was meant to run Android. You can take a look in the video below the break.

Makes me miss my old rooted Nexus One.
