50 Cool Mobile Phone Concepts

mobile phone contept
Mobile phone business is one of the most rapid growing industries. Not so long ago, the popular check phone was Nokia 3310 with mere basic functions: call, text messaging and the only bearable game, snake.

However, significant improvement has been made since then. We now have so many variety of phones that surpasses the basic function, smart phones for example allows you to connect to social media conveniently, GPS, video conferencing etc.

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.

What will be next? What we can expect from the next generation of handsets that will be available in the next 10 year? Some of the few features that will be built in new cell phones are OLED screen and enhancement in flexibility.

In this article we will show you a list of creative and interesting futuristic phone concepts.
