Designer Kyle Hatfield, the same guy behind yesterday’s iPhone 7 with curved edges has created the Curve. This is a concept phone with a bent design and probably a foldable case. The handset has touchscreen buttons along the side.

This smartphone brings a large display and aluminum finish at the bottom and top. In the middle it’s all glass and at the back there’s a metal piece. I can’t figure out what the thing below the display is, maybe it’s a speaker, or maybe a sort of sensor. A special curved dock has also been envisioned by the designer, leading me to believe that the device stays like this and doesn’t flex.

The Curve Phone is pretty stylish and slim, but I sure hope it can at least be flexed into a straight body, like the LG G Flex for example. I’m looking forward to see what else this designer comes up with, especially since he seems specialized in curved display smartphones.
