Titanium Lumia FX800 design concept screams 'Nokia, take note!'

0. phoneArena 18 Oct 2012, 04:42 posted on

Nokia already said it will unveil a new design paradigm for its Windows Phone 8 devices next year, as it has been coasting so far largely with variations of the polycarbonate unibody shell created initially for the Nokia N9...

It should be FX800, not FX5800, right?
Gotta say, looks like a promising device. Nokia for innovations, yeah!

Nokia's designers said themselves that the new "feel" of Nokia was polycarbonate, so I highly doubt metal would make a resurgence. Not to mention they have experience with it (N8, E7, etc) and deliberately moved away from it.
That said, the third-party concept looks good and I like the color. Not sure how I feel about the buttons though.

Actually it's FX800, not FX5800, so maybe you could edit the title and text. Thanks for publishing, and maybe the readers will like it enough to approve our wishes for Nokia in the near future.

Fixed, like how the grey tiles match the titanium chassis, very streamlined looks...

Am not yet a fan of WP8 but i would totally consider this phone, and if microsoft would allow background pics and transparents tiles that would be cool

It will sell as long as Ballmer is not in it

I would dislike it so much if MS allows background pics because it will destroy the simple beauty of the Metro UI. Plus it will make the display too busy since the live tiles already do a lot of movements, including flipping over! MS, please no background pics! Thanks!

And I also hope Ballmer will continue on!

resolution should be 1024x768 at 4.65 inches...

--whats the difference between pentile and rgb? i dont know.

Pentile makes the image look crappy. Non-pentile is the only way to go.

That's the One X vs. One S. That's a terrible comparison of RGB vs. Pentile, considering the One X has 312 ppi and the One S has only 256 ppi. When both RGB and Pentile are 300+ ppi Pentile is hardly noticeable from average viewing distance. People really over-exaggerate Pentile.

And 1024x768? Why?

why the fukk did they invented and still use pentile.. if rgb is better?!?!

i mean 1280x768 display. ppi for better density and aspect ratio 16:10 for better balance of the screen..

16:9 feels only good for movies, but not generally better for overall use like 16:10.

PenTile configuration of subpixels is invented because it was cheaper and simpler than full RGB subpixel matrix. Then it was used specifically for OLED displays because they couldn't achieve the pixel density they wanted for RGB. Now it's the same situation. They mastered the mass production of RGB matrix above-200 ppi for AMOLEDs but they couldn't do it for high-definition screens, for which they still have to use PenTile. Only few weeks ago first non-PenTile HD AMOLED screen was introduced in Galaxy Note II, but again for lower pixel density since it has 5.5 inches.

We must wait for another year for HD AMOLED screens above-300 PPI become available for mass production.

Nokia FX800 could use only PenTile for now. I hope this clears some things concerning your question.

I agree for the aspect ratio. This one is 16:9 just for the sake of "sleekness", not for optimal usage.

Stop it already damn i hate people still crying that Nokia did not chose Android! Damn get over it, and i am happy they didn't, Android is getting boring, we need something refreshing. And i think WP was a good choice!

Chill dude. Some like android, some like windows. I appreciate both and think that this hardware would fit perfectly with either OS. He wasn't crying. Just stating an opinion. Just chill.

No, although I love android, I wouldn't want this to get android..

first of all, it is a minimalistic design which requires a minimalistic-designed UI/OS.. And it's WP8 for that matter..

Nokia have got to think that the Lumias are not as good as the iphones,as we used to have mico sd card slots on alot of Nokia phones but then they copied the iPhone structure an removed them an then we lost removable battery idea from Nokia,Samsung learned from Nokias mistakes an have the micro sd card slots an removable batteries an Consumers prefer these instead,so until Nokia change the design of the Lumias Samsung will be more Happier

though subjective, it's true that many prefer micro sd card expansion and removable battery

Nokia Lumia 820 has those features.

The next gen-Lumias will likely have them as well, but Nokia did not want to compromise the design and reengineer the phone (and delay its launch) of the 920 so it didn't have these features.

WOW!!! Epic design. If using titanium isn't possible then they could use the material (aluminum I guess) used in the n8.

If Aluminium is possible, then titanium too could be possible. The only difference is it will make it an exterme premiumed device. Even if it cost same current IP5 I can hold my Lumia 920 for it

And then they always have the option of LIQUID METAL.

Yeah, I was worried for the cost of titanium since it is expensive, for mass production to majority of consumers aluminum is probably best cost wise. . .

Yes but titanium will add the strength. Aluminium is fragile. Nokia handsets are famous for breaking the floor not for breaking the screen, even if they use some titanium allow that is inexpensive but same tensile strength as Titanium it will be all good

Agree. If only nokia capitalize on this concept.
