Samsung has long rumored to be working on a real world foldable smartphone. Not the clamshell phone, or flip phone, btw. It would be an actual folding screen device. In case you still wrapping your head around how it will look like, well, do that no more because, Netherlands’ phones and tablets comparison website, Nieuwe Mobiel, has taken the liberty to imagine what it will look like. With the help of concept phone designer Jonas Dähnert, Nieuwe Mobiel has turn out a device which it calls Foldable Samsung Galaxy F, where ‘F’ here stands for ‘Foldable’.

I do not keep abreast with so-called Apple rumors. However, today I picked up something that pique my interest and so I thought we’d share it with you here. We read that there is a chance that future iPhone models will have “hover” gestures and curved displays. Curved like, you know, the iconic Nokia 8110, AKA the banana phone, which recently got rebooted? The curved was described as “inward” and progresses “gradually from top to bottom,” which does really makes it sounds like 8110 kind of design. I know. It is hard to imagine how, but not to worry, because designer Martin Hajek has taken the rumors and imagine what the phone would look like. Continue reading This Is How A Curved iPhone Will Look Like, But It Probably Won’t Happen
If you recall, Nokia was once the market leader of mobile phone. During its rein, it had made bold design iterations, including square device with two rounded corners. Now, look at today’s smartphone. Do you see much difference between them? Hardly. The materials may be different, but the design is pretty much the same. It is always the candy bar form factor and that’s that. And that is perhaps why the APOLLO II Concept Smartphone you see here looks super refreshing. When unleashing his creativity, not only designer Varnicic Branislav indulged himself by proposing the phone to be encased in one of the nature’s greatest gifts, wood, but the concept boldly touts a circular bottom that’s supposedly makes it more fitting in the palm of your hand. Continue reading This Bold Circular Bottom Wood Smartphone Is What Phone Should Be
OnePlus 5T has been unveiled barely a month ago, but already, someone has imagined what the next flagship, OnePlus 6, would look like and it is so beautiful that you will probably don’t want to buy the OnePlus 5T now. Of course, this isn’t real. First of all, even number is not OnePlus’s norm. Any OnePlus fan would have told you that the next OnePlus is likely to be labelled ‘7’, not ‘6’. Anyways, according to Science and Knowledge, the YouTube channel responsible for this render, the concept phone was based on “latest leaks and rumors” and so, we shall take it with a huge pinch of salt, and enjoying fantasizing about it. Continue reading Someone Have Imagined What The Next OnePlus’s Flagship Will Looks Like
Microsoft, unfortunately, did not catch up in the game of smartphone. For those who are too young to remember, Microsoft was in the smartphone game way before iOS and Android. So, yes, the software did had a mobile Windows OS which was then known as Windows CE. But being one of the pioneers does not automatically grant Microsoft an edge. However, it does make one wonder “what if there was a smartphone running the once-popular Windows OS?” Well, imagine no more, my friends, because UI/UX designer Henrique Perticarati already imagined it on our behalf. Continue reading WinPhone 95 Imagines What If There Was A Phone That Runs On Windows 95
The iPhones from 6 onward had a design which is time-tested. Since the 6, the same design cues can seen in later models of iPhone and even in other makes of handsets, but the 5? Well, that, my friends, was another brilliant design which Apple have kept for a little longer than it should have, now under the SE model. Having said that, it is only logical for someone to wonder ‘can the SE be more? Like, ‘what if the SE gets the iPhone X treatments?’ As some people like yours truly here are fantasying about the possibilities, German tech website CURVED/labs actually get down and ‘design’ an iPhone SE based on their own set of fantasies which they christen, iPhone SE+. Continue reading iPhone SE Reimagined With iPhone X Features And The Result Is Brilliant!
The rivalry between Apple and Samsung could be more ferocious than some might have imagined. Case in point: just before the official announcement of Apple’s anniversary iPhone, the iPhone X and the next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 8, Samsung made an official statement in South Korea of its intention to continue pursuing foldable display smartphones. Until now, foldable display device is to smartphone like flying cars to personal transportation. There are talks about it and even concept made, but never realized. That being said, the concept of foldable phone, particularly one that has a foldable display, is not the newest news. Continue reading Samsung Plans To Release Galaxy Note Device With Bendable Display In 2018
If you believe Google ambitious modular phone, Project Ara, is the future of smartphone, then we have not-so-good news for you: the future is not going to happen. According to a report, Google has pull the plug on Project Ara. It is a strange turn of event. Stranger still since this would-be revolutionary phone was reportedly making headway just last year (though, that halted too) and just not too long ago in May this year, Alphabet’s Google revealed a bunch of developers and even said that the company would be shipping the developer edition of the product this autumn. With those news, one may have the impression that the future of this Continue reading Google Project Ara: Its Modular Phone No More, At Least Not For Now
lets not kid ourselves; we never wished for a phone upgrade cos’ being geeks, we are all in for new gadgets and hence, an endeavor like the Motorola Project Ara Modular Smartphone which touts upgradability may not be the cuppa for us and some folks. i am not saying everyone is like us, but most of us, though not explicitly expressed, could benefit from a jolt of excitement into our tech-laden life, and getting a brand new phone kind of does that. however, if you look at Motorola Project Ara Modular Smartphone from another perspective, it is like a hardware version of the Android, where the community decides how the phone should look, what it is made of (or where it is made, even) and basically, customize the phone to your specific needs. Continue reading Motorola Project Ara Modular Smartphone

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?
