Paul Chen, a designer from China has created the following concept, the Samsung Wei Chi. Since it’s a project from 2007, we may as well have covered it in the past, but it certainly looks unique. Since there’s no clear explanation of what’s going on here, I can say we don’t quite understand how this can be used as a phone.
This means we can speculate on this handset-cube. From what I can see it unwraps from the cube form factor into a series of surfaces, each with its own hinge. Three key pillars are clearly involved: transparency, modularity and minimalism. I imagine the core of the phone are two of those squares combined, let’s see three, making a sort of flip phone.
The others would simply attach in modular fashion and add extra functionality to the device. I can’t quite figure out what those black and white dots are, but I suppose they’re connection mechanisms. Really, it’s all me speculating in the dark here, so feel free to comment on this concept below. The designer is obviously invited to chip in.
