Concept Cell Phone Designs

This post features a collection of creative concept cell phone designs, created by talented designers from around the world.

Ply Cell Phone Concept

Ply’s name is taken from the design of multilayered plywood, and each layer has its own very distinct function, ranging from a photo printer to game controller to mini digital projector.

Leaf Cell Phone Concept

Leaf has a unique natural design reminiscent of a leaf in spring. The eco plastics provide sensational haptics and substantial convenience. The invisible OLED display is embedded in a translucent lens encasement, giving the phone a futuristic touch.

LINC “Green” Cell Phone Concept

LINC (The Lifecycle Concept Phone) is a typical touch screen smart phone with all the connectivity and features you come to expect. Its got a cell phone, a media player, a web browser, GPS, downloadable content, Bluetooth, wifi, the latest 3G network. But here’s the catch.

LINC is leased to the user as a service, not a product. The user holds on to the device for about a year, and when the next generation of hardware comes along, the user receives a new LINC in the mail. The LINCs inform the user of their hardware upgrade, wirelessly transfer the digital account, and before being shipped back to the manufacturer, LINC informs the user of the next part of its journey.

The Scroll Cell Phone Concept

This concept cell phone comes with multimedia player, Wi-Fi connectivity, built-in camera/camcorder, computer functions, Bluetooth and e-paper display to deliver high-end functions.

The Scroll would use Windows XP or Vista as the operating system and would allow the user to capture 10MP pictures or use the 1080p camcorder function.

Bend Cell Phone Concept

Why bother with one screen when you can have two for probably double the price? Designer Andy Kurovets presents his “Bend Mobile” concept. He thinks turning on a device and having it grow to nearly double its size will really be attractive to some people.

Nokia 888 Cell Phone Concept

Created by Tamer Nakisci, a Turkish student, for the Nokia Benelux Open Design Awards, this phone offers a malleable interface that can be bent, twisted and wrapped into different shapes like a wristband.

  7. Katrina

    the nokia 888 looks like a pregnancy test.. i dont want to walk around looking like im holding a pregnancy test all the time…

  8. samwighs

    the wooden phone is an interesting design to look at, but i do not think i would enjoy owning one of this design.

    the wristband phone and also the LINC GREEN phone are my two favorites.

    the PLY is a neat concept but to build a device sturdy enough for americans, you would spend so much money designing the protective measures you would have to charge an outrageous amount of money for the overall cost.

  51. minoo


  52. hjd

    actually, yes it is possible. 3M came up with a flexible film circutry technology back in the 90s. i am certain the science has advanced quite a bit.i am also certain there are other ways to do it, like chips being in sections with wiring in between.
