We’ve seen a nice range of concept devices lately, but none has had the looks and features of Nexus D, a new such phone coming from Dorian Lust.
The first thing that strikes about this device is the fact that it comes with a curved design. It’s not only the screen that is curved, but the back is curved as well.
The screen is concave and features light pipe notifications on its sides, to inform users on any new messages or missed calls and the like.
Featuring a quad-core 1.8GHz application processor inside, along with 1.5GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of internal memory, the phone would come in line with the high-end smartphones available on shelves today.
But, given that it is a concept device
, its creator conceived it with a great deal of features that are rather hard to find in smartphones today.
For example, it packs a fingerprint reader on the back, a laser pointer, cornea scan, and can be easily used as a universal remote. It also sports a kickstand so that users could watch videos on its screen more comfortably.
The handset also sports back and front-facing cameras, most probably with HD video recording capabilities on both of them, along with built-in front and back radar detectors.
The software loaded on this concept phone would also be tailored to fit its unique capabilities, along with applications and services that can be found on other Android devices as well.
The Nexus D concept phone
runs under Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, and comes with all the usual set of sensors, connectivity options and the like that are available in high-end smartphones today.
Provided that Google ever considered to work with one of its partners to build such a device, it would certainly make some waves. For the time being, however, we’ll have to look at the phone as a simple concept and nothing more.
