New Nokia Concept Phone Has a Touchscreen All Over


Nokia makes the coolest concept phones. More than a decade ago they came out with a cool concept phone where the phone fits inside a ring. It was a marvellous concept in miniature technology and diminutive devices. More than a decade later they revisited the ring idea with the Nenya magnetic ring, a ring that can control your phone remotely. This year, Nokia has once again presented a cool concept phone that is cool beyond words.

The new concept phone was developed by the Nokia Research Center to mark its 25th year anniversary. The Nokia Gem pushes the touchscreen fad to an insane degree – the whole surface of the phone is a touchscreen. The whole touchscreen will change its image or what it shows depending on what function is being used by he user.

For example, if the user wants to use the phone’s map feature, and one side of the phone (the keypad will disappear) will turn into a fully detailed map showing where you are, the other side, on the other hand, will show a more zoomed out view of the map.

The entire surface of the phone is put to use  and that means every single inch of it. This means even the top, bottom and the sides of the phone are used as a touchscreen. The Nokia Gem was designed by a design team led by designer Jarkko Saunamaki. The whole phone will change depending on the function, so if the user wants to use the phone, the whole phone will change its outward appearance to look like a phone. The Nokia Gem is described as “the ultimate customizable device.”

The question is whether existing or prototype technologies can turn this concept into an actual product. Samsung has already announced that it has plans to come out with a phone with a fully flexible display.
