37 Cool Cell Phone Concepts You Would Want To Have

Every year a few concept phones appear on various sites or presentation videos and make us wonder when will we ever get our hands on them. Probably never in some cases, considering that most of the cell phones we see are a little bit too futuristic to be created.

However, they inspire the phone manufacturers and if not built fully, a few features from here or there end up on a phone. Look at the Iphone, for example. Its touch screen function is at the moment rather common, whereas in 2005 this was considered more a science fiction feature and hard to implement. Seeing this happening makes you wonder what our phones will look like in a decade or so.

Alienware Android Phone Concept

The combination of Alienware’s gaming features and the flexibility of the Android platform is somehow the ideal phone for a gamer. However, as cool and interesting it might look, it is not likely that it would ever be created.

AQUA

The water based cellphone AQUA created by Bon Seop Ku has, if you had doubts about it, a graphical UI and water display. The funny thing about it is that you can remove icons from the display by simply rubbing them. Besides this, it is known about it that it has a different battery than we are used to, a liquid type one.

Finger Touching Wearable Mobile Phone

A wearable mobile device for enhanced chatting. It introduces a new wearable device that anyone can communicate with that is easier and lighter in mobile circumstances corresponding to the 3.5G, 4G communication standard. Human hand is the most basic communication method. For easier and simpler controls, it uses the instinctive input method “finger joint”. Excluding the thumb, each finger joint makes up twelve buttons, with “the knuckle button”, using the cell phone’s 3X4 keypad, likely being the most popular input method.

Kambala

The main idea of the project is to combine a mobile phone and wireless headphones. Material – a multilayered polymer, in which all electronic components are located inside in the form of layers. If you squeeze the phone, then in his mid appears earpiece, which is inserted into the ear. Thus the mobile phone turns into a headset. The inner surface of the phone is a continuous flexible screen, as well as a layer of sensors, which transmit the image from inside the phone on the outside – there is a layer of paint that can take any color – just like a fish flounder. When you wear this headset is automatically masked in your head and almost disappears. Instead of the joystick – sensitive strip on the edge of petal headphones.

LG EXO

The EXO elegantly solves this by mimicking the natural durability of the human body. Similar to how the human body protects its internal organs with a complex skeletal system and resilient external skin, the EXO protects its delicate internal components with an external rubber skin and high strength exo-skeleton.

LINC

The challenge for this phone was to create a smart phone with all the connectivity and features you come to expect such as a cell phone, media player, web browser, GPS, downloadable content, Bluetooth, Wifi and the latest 3G network available as a service rather than a product.

The results are represented by less landfill waste. Consumers no longer have to purchase new phones each time there is an upgrade to the device. The user holds on to the LINC device for about a year, and when the next generation of hardware comes along, the user receives a new LINC in the mail. The previous LINC is harvested for valuable, reusable parts. All account details are handled wirelessly to ensure a smooth transition for the consumer between upgrades.

Mechanical Mobile

Mikhail Stawsky comes with an interesting idea of generating energy to charge this phones battery. Somehow looking like a stress ring, the phone is being recharged by turning your finger. Sounds like a pretty interesting idea… until you drop it a few times.
