(credit: Claesson Koivisto Rune/Huawei via Akihabara) Huawei Folded Leaf Concept Phone | US$tbc(concept) | www.huawei.com
remember the Nokia 8110 mobile phone? which also was affectionately known as the ‘Banana’ phone due to its curve profile and further made famous by the movie ‘Matrix’? good. you remember it, don’t you? that was the phone i would vote as my all time favorite, until now when the concept Huawei Leaf appears before my eyes. aesthetically, it is significantly different from the 8110 but somehow the profile reminisces of the banana phone. commissioned by Huawei, Claesson Koivisto Rune designed this minimalist styled phone with quite a visual impact. though keypads are so passe but i think the phone still looks great. i love the folded side profile but do we need to have a bulked up front profile? it looks just plain weird and toy-like. if it has a straight front profile, it would be perfect. good thing that it is a concept and there’s a chance to make amends but would they?
