What Future Phones Will Look Like
Telephones, the most wonderful mode of communication in the modern times, thanks to Alexander Graham Bell, has seen a lot of changes over the past decades, evolving from a size as big as a wash basin to a size that can fit in your shirt pocket. The phone where we had to turn a dial once for each digit replaced the older one which had different devices for the speaker and the microphone, but was painfully for dial long numbers. The dial one was replaced by buttons which was much more convenient, and sophisticated, and was a standard landline until the wireless mobile phones came up. The revolutionary idea of the mobile phone was popular in no time, and also went through various transformations like removal of the antenna and reduction of size, and finally we has reached an era of touch phone and motion sensors. Cellphones today are not only used for talking but also a whole host of other purposes like photography, office applications, short message service, gaming ,etc. You can even see the person you are talking to, with video calling, and listen to your favorite songs any time of the day. But the important question is what next? What developments are now possible in this area, because it seems that the phone have given us all they had, especially after the inclusion of a projection device in a phone for presentations. Well, here are some cell phone concepts of the future, none like which you might have seen before:
Bend in Touch: A simply awesome bent design that has two screens instead of one, and a list of features put in in a very distinct manner. The phone, as the name says, is bent, and was designed by Andy Kurovets a few years back and with the new technology its prospects as a cool future phone is great. The basic concept of the phone is that is open ups to expand the screen into a bigger one, and has camera and zoom buttons that actually slip out of the phone. The mobile phone can easily slip into pockets and adjust well in there, unlike most big screen phones and the expandable feature is the main charm of the phone. If it is ever launched into the market, a bend phone will definitely be a cool purchase.
Nokia 888 communicator: A phone designed by Nokia, and also won the Nokia’s Benelux design contest, is not soon to be seen in the market, but the possibility of this phone actually being manufactured one day is decent. The communicator looks more like a bracelet than a phone, and can be folded into any design. One could wear it as a bracelet of folded several times to fit into small spaces, and also straighten it up. The revolutionary design and fun factor appeals to the public more than the technology for this phone, and we hope Nokia comes up with its 888 communicator one day.
LG Flutter concept smartphone: A design that will give the James Bond gadget makers a run for their money. When you look at this smartphone you just want to have one for yourself immediately. Splendid outer looks and it opens up to reveal a radial touch, the likes of which have never ever been used in any gadget before. The smartphone got the first-ever Prop Mater’s Choice Award, given to Dua Xiong for the spectacular design. The LG Flutter slides apart, and then splits open to reveal a flexible, boomerang-like OLED screen. LG says that the design is definitely going to be manufactured, but before that it is going to be used in some action movie (details unknown) as a future gadget.
Iphone 4G: When talking about the future mobile concepts, we couldn’t just miss the 4G technology could we? Well, the Iphone is expected to be more powerful than a laptop in a few years, with the yet to be launched 4G network. The main features will be 4G Data Speed, AMOLED touch-screen display, Touch-sensitive case, Dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, 128 GB internal memory, Video-call camera and 10.2MP camera with flash, with a lens better than a digital camera. If you want the best technology phone with good processing power, the Iphone 4G will be an ideal buy, but wait, let them make it first!
