From Alexander Graham Bell to today,phones have undergone an incredible transformation. From having to go through an operator to two- and three-party lines to private landlines to cordless, and now mobile, or cell phone is quite a long way, and older Americans can remember most of the journey.
Now that most Americans have cell phones. the companies are looking for innovations to attract more customers and address demands of one-the-go communications.
One thing that companies are trying is changing the look of cell phones. The i Phone 8 Concept has a cylindrical shape that sets it apart from the usual phone. The Cartier “milenaire” takes this idea a bit further, making a phone that looks more like an expensive piece of jewelry or maybe a very nice makeup case. There is also a design all of one color and the case is made of precious metal. Maybe for the person “who has everything”? The P-One is very different and sure to attract attention. It has a shape somewhat like a USB port with a circle in the middle. It is so small that it cannot support a keyboard, so it has motion sensors for written text recognition. One of the “knobs” can be used as a crank charger if you are in a remote area with no electricity. The Puzzlephone has three replaceable modules: the “brain” or electronics of the phone, the “heart” or battery, and the “spine” or screen, making it easy to upgrade or replace whatever part needs replacing. If the screen is broken it can be replaced without buying a new phone, or the phone can be updated to newer technology by replacing the “brain” module.
There are models designed to be worn. The Portal is designed to wear as a bracelet, something of a version of smartwatch but with a six-inch touch screen. The Nokia Fit is actually worn as you would a ring. It is waterproof because it is made of silicone rubber.One part is worn on the index finger and with the speaker and call reception part, which is worn on the pinkie finger. Another part is worn on the middle finger and accepts vibration and missed call notification.
Some models emphasize the screen of the phone. The Meizu Pro 6 and Pro 7 feature a curved screen. According to available information, there will be a new release of this phone soon with fingerprint technology. The LG Flex 950 also has a curved screen, as do the Samsung Galaxy Round, Galaxy Note Edge, LG F340 and Vivo XPlay 5. Apple plans to release a new i phone this year without a metal frame with AMOLED display, with the screen that wraps around the body of the phone. The i phone Essence has two screens, one on the front and the other on the opposite side. It is waterproof and can be charged by solar power. There is a rumor that in 2017 Samsung will release an Android phone with a folding screen. Some companies are developing prototypes of phones with flexible screens. One Chinese company has a prototype of a model with a flexible display made of graphene and the Holoflex prototype features a holographic display.
These are just the tip of the iceberg since there companies concentrating more on performance capabilities, rather than outward appearance. In short, the future of cells phones is now.
