In business a product could have a shorter life if it can’t win the hearts of people and showcase new technology, so take the case of Nokia, who is coming up with the Nokia Morph flexible mobile phone which the company claims include nanotechnology and would immensely benefit its end-users. The main benefit of Nanotechnology is that its components are flexible, transparent and extremely strong. The company believes this latest technology would be a distinctive phone by 2015, but a few technical glitches remained to be solved, like the use of new battery materials etc.

Nokia is known for incorporating new features in its cell phones like Nokia X6 Touchscreen Multimedia Cellphone and Nokia N96 Quad-Band Phone. Since there are only so many ways you can bend a phone, no matter how flexible, Nokia have introduced a further modifier in the shape of motion-recognition. Make the can shape and tilt it to your lips and the handset might search for nearby pubs; roll it like a wheel, however, and it could look for the closest gas station (or, indeed, a specific franchise of gas station which operate the loyalty scheme you’re a member of).

Alternatively the handset could assign different modifiers to different corners being bent initially, or indeed the position, angle, speed or sharpness of the bend. More simply, the point at which the phone is bent could be used to select on-screen graphics rather than requiring a traditional touchscreen; that could be useful for those operating the handset while wearing gloves. Of course, despite flexible OLED panels being available, it’s unclear quite how long they might last in Nokia’s bendy vision of the future.

Presenting the next generation of Apple IPhone, designer Fabio Merzari has popped up a cellphone concept that can be used either opened or closed, letting the users change the dimensions of the mobile handset. Dubbed the “RFR IPhone Next,” the next-gen mobile phone integrates a transparent display formed by two OLED screens with lots of shape memory alloy, which when in closed configuration rolls neatly within the case.

As soon as you touch the screen, the icon pops-up on the display to allow multi-layer effect, while multi-colored illumination that adjusts according to light conditions ensures easy access of info to the users. Featuring the body finished in aluminum, the RFR IPhone Next also touts a massive 128 GB memory and comes integrated with Ichat 5 Mpx camera.

Talk about futuristic phone.  This time we’re dealing with a device that seems take directly from Minority Report, as it uses a holographic display. The Zero concept phone was designed by Josselin Zaïgouche and it’s a pretty regular device, till you join its two equal sides in a single square.

This one is literally a different take on the design of a mobile phone. The Zero Concept Phone isn’t shaped like a zero, but it’s a square box with two equal sides that connect to each other. When these two sides are together, the hollow part in the middle becomes the transparent holographic display for the phone. You can make calls or do other tasks on the screen hologram of the Zero phone. When the two sides are open, the phone works as a normal telephone and there is no screen. The Zero concept phone looks to be something straight out of a futuristic sci-fi movie.
