Rotary Dial Phone Design Comes from India!

Today we’ll show you a phone design coming straight from India and packing a rotary dial. This old-school device was created by Mukund K P and it helps us go back in time and use the rotating mechanism as a means of dialing numbers, which is pretty vintage and cool.

There’s also a sliding QWERTY keyboard incorporated in the phone and most likely a tiny touchscreen. According to the designer, the cellphone can be charged with the aid of the dial mechanism, but I guess it takes a lot of rotations to get the battery going for hours. This fresh design from India is really pleasant to the eye and I wonder what material would be used to manufacture the rotary dial…

Metal? Plastic? Any other ideas?

    This retro look isn’t really such a big deal. You can download a retro dialer (for Android phones) that puts a dial on screen. But this thing looks poorly designed and would fall apart quickly.
