Slick Galaxy S7 edge renders build on top of existing Samsung patent for a trapezoid phone design
posted by Chris P. / Oct 15, 2015, 7:07 AM
Said patent is pretty interesting, if only because Samsung designers are obviously toying with the idea of a trapezoid phone — one a lot alike to the Ubuntu Edge, which never made it to the market. In any case, what the folks over at the design studio did is take the basic outlines and spirit of the design patent, and then add some substance and color. The results, as you can see, yield an imposing-looking smartphone that looks all kinds of alien and, therefore, cool.
We won't get into the nitty-gritty here, and will refrain from commenting on the seeming impracticality of the proposed design. If this ever becomes a reality, however, we'd be quite curious as to how it translates into everyday life, what with those sharp corners and sub-optimal placing of the selfie cam. In the meantime, however, we're quite enjoying these.

Ok This Looks Super Cool But It Seems Like It Wouldn't Feel Great In The Hand.

You hold your phone up and down not side to side?

i think it would be a hit across the world the look and i bet if its liquid metal it will feel amazing, but one thing i would like the front speakers at the top and bottom edge,

It WOULD in fact be worse. Since you hold your phone by the sides with your skin in contact at the whole surface, effectively having the possibility to block 100% of the speakers, whereas on the back you don't block out the whole surface since your fingers arch around the back.

I agree with Arch, if this concept really makes it to production it would be awesome. It really looks unique and elegant specially in an all black model. Uncomfortable to hold? Really who cares the design really shines in my opinion. Samsung make it happen please!

You will say it is a good design if it has a fruit logo.

Since when did design have to have a point?
