Glance Skinny Handset Fits Into Any Pants

Having a problem with your bulky smartphone and tight jeans? This is where the Glance skinny handset comes into play, a concept created by designer Alan Gerardo Farias. We’re dealing with a 4 inch OLED screen phone, with a display that’s scratch resistant.

This is an extremely slim dual display phone, with dual speakers, mini USB port, a bottom 2 inch OLED display for notifications and a front and back camera with flash. The reason why this unit is called “Glance”? Well, in the moment you hold the handset in your pocket, only the smaller 2 inch screen can be seen, so you can have a glance at it, to see the missed calls, texts, twitter mentions and whatnot.

One can only guess the thickness of this model, but I’m supposing it’s below the 7mm speculated for the iPhone 5. The only question here is the material and the component types, since it would take serious nanotech to produce something so skinny…

    I noticed that the demo showed this in the jeans (front?) pocket. I guess that means you’d need to be skinny enough to see beyond your belt to your pocket. So this isn’t designed for those with “dunlop” disease (LOL)

    I suppose you might also put it in your shirt pocket, but I don’t know too many people that do that for fear of it falling out. Hey, maybe someone should conceptualize a phone with clip like a pen has. 😉

  • That’s a cool phone.
    I like the display at the bottom idea.
    When you look at it at a glance, it looks like a PCMCIA card… 🙂
