Google Nexus D concept phone has all of the curves
A mock-up of a concept phone called the Google Nexus D shows that curves might be in when it comes to handsets. Designed by a Dorian Lust, the Google Nexus D shows a curved back, a concave touchscreen and a kickstand to prop the phone up while viewing video. Piping around the diameter of the unit lights up to notify you of a new message.

The concept Google Nexus D

The concept Google Nexus D

The designer says that the Google Nexus D was envisioned to have a quad-core 1.8GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM and have 32GB or 64GB of storage. It's also shock proof which means that dropping the Google Nexus D might not be the end of the world. The phone can also double as a universal remote and get this...it is also a laser pointer

The concept model is designed to support NFC and security comes from a fingerprint scanner and a cornea scan. There is even an option to unlock the phone by waving it in a specific motion. Front and back radar detection allows you to get past Popo's radar and a moisture meter is perfect for farming.

So what do you guys think about the Google Nexus D. Is this a phone that you could see in your hand at some future date?

Since it's becoming a standard (S3 already has it), why not just throw in 2GB or ram in there? Oh except for the iPhone. They've managed to reach 1GB....hooray! *Changes everything...Again* *People go hysterical*

Do you remember about 3 years ago when the Apple commercial went something like...

"Introducing the 'new' iPhone 3GS. Now, record live video, straight from your phone."

WOW, amazing innovation right? In the year 2010 lol

Color that with red LED's and I'd be interested.

1. Why so much different colour details?
2. What is purpose of concave display?
3. What is purpose of two "bumps" on the stand?

Sorry, but I don't like. :(

I would think the purpose of the "bumps" on the stand would be to keep the phone from rocking when it's on its back.

Nice notice! :)

But I don't see logics in this concept, why make convex body if it keeps phone rocking when it is on back and then there is two "bumps" on kickstand to avoid rocking.

In other words one inconvenience to avoid other inconvenience...

My guess would be that it is convex to feel better in one's hand. Yet, when placed down on a surface it would rock. So they put the bumps to stop that. Therefore, giving the best of both worlds. I'm not positive though. I think we should wait to judge until we hold one in our hands.

You can color the notifications anything you want so they could be red if you liked. I'm working on the Farmer phone now otherwise i'd render you a red one.

The curved body fits nicer in my front pocket against my leg and is nicer to hold. I also think the curved glass will reduce how many reflection you see in the glass. And yes the it will either sit on the light pipes on the face or the lens protector and the feet so that it's always stable and doesn't scratch the body. That's the idea.

"I also think the curved glass will reduce how many reflection you see in the glass."

In my opinion opposite, it will be even more reflective.

I think concept phones should pack as much ideas together as possable even if it does not necaserraly have ones that will be used. Look at concept cars, they are rediculus somtimes just lik clothes at a fasion show. But what happens is the industry takes ideas that can work out of the concept and incorperat them into a pratical phone. I dont like all the ideas on this phone either and would make a different concept phone my self with all the do dads and gizmos i wish could be on the phone. I wounder if you made it so the screen on the inside bends in a different way so the screen on the outside magnifies the inner screen. I wonder if not only can 3d be mor vivid but maybe make it look like the screen is bigger than it is. So maybe you can get away with a more edge to edg e with out the lcd actualy being closer than it is now to protect from drops but tho outer touch screen does go right to the edge and is easily replacable.

The spec side looks good but the damn concept is hideous! And with a capital H!

Samsung's flexible displays? Not bad, just don't prefer to have that many illuminated notification lights.

That was actually the inspiration, I liked that it was cool and an original new shape but I didn't find it ergonomic enough so I decided to come up with something I liked.

i think it looks very slick, but would a curved screen make it hard to view?

17. TuTall76 (Posts: 3; Member since: 09 Aug 2012)


forget viewing, wouldn't the curved screen make it feel kind of awkward on the ear?

It's only a 1.5mm curve but maybe. If I had one of those 3D printers I'd make it and find out.

I wouldn't think so as our ears aren't flat. From an acoustic standpoint it might sound better with the curved design.
