10 cool future smartphone designs
Sometimes we just need to have some fun and stop being so serious when we think of technology. As you may know, I love smartphones and I’ve already teased some of the most anticipated smartphones of 2014 in a previous article, but since it’s Christmas, I decided to do something different. It’s time to see a collection of interesting concepts on future smartphones. Most of these concept designs are based on rumors and on current trends, but most probably, they won’t see the light of day as physical devices.
This particular concept follows an interesting design that lacks any button on the front face. Everything is replaced by a full-front-face-display. If this type of concept will be adopted, manufacturers will be able to pack even bigger displays in their devices while maintaining the size of the gadget.
Foldable smartphones. This trend seems to be the next big thing in technology, and every major manufacturer is racing to release at least a successful device with this characteristic. Although rumors regarding an Apple smartphone with a curved display surfaced a while back and got a lot of attention, most tech blogs agree that Samsung could release the first foldable smartphone.
Slimmer smartphones. I noticed this type of gadget while I was watching the new “Almost Human” TV series. The main protagonist uses a slim smartphone that actually works. So, what if we could see this implemented in the future? Would you buy it?
Transparent smarpthone. This type of concept was also teased in many concept designs this year, but we can all agree that such device is still far away. There are few shy attempts to implement this bold technology, but we are not quite there.
Which of these concepts would you like to see implemented in the future? Why?

People are all about efficiency nowadays. So when it comes to the possibility of consolidating ones gadgets, I am interested. We don't carry a pocket of tools, we carry a multi tool. I don't know why I wear a watch and also have a smart phone that tells me the time that is always correct. I would like to see the phones that can be worn as a wrist band as well. I am a mechanical designer and really appreciate good design. It just makes sense. Even though all the other designs are interesting and really unique, the wrist band concept would be the most practical in my opinion.
