Nokia shows off 4 inch smartphone concepts (Design by Community sketches)
It’s been a while since we’ve last heard about Nokia’s Design by Community project. Nokia’s designers should have presented some concept phones (based on community votes) back in May, but they only did it now.
All three concepts share the same specs (4 inch 16:9 capacitive display, aluminum casing, Dolby stereo speakers, HMDI-out, 12MP Carl Zeiss camera with “auto on” protective lens, and 110 x 60 x 8 mm) and should run an “open source operating system with unlimited multitasking” – Symbian or MeeGo.
Concept 1 looks like an N8 with a larger screen:
Concept 2 looks like a funkier X6:
And Concept 3 looks like… a Samsung (at least when viewed from the front):
Nokia fans can vote any of the three concept sketches here at Nokia Conversations (I’ve voted Concept 2, although I don’t like those lime/green accents). The winning concept will be transformed by Nokia into a 3D render – and, who knows, maybe into a real device, too.
