Concept Nokias: Nokia X9 – 720p HD recording, Quad LED and AMOLED gesture area

Via and designer @kalevgr, we have a Nokia X9 – a concept phone based on the X6 but with several new welcome features:

  • 720p HD recording
  • Quad-LED
  • HDMI out
  • Capacitive Multitouch screen
  • This is most interesting: AMOLED screen buttons underneath
  • DUAL MINI (not micro) USB – so the X9 can function as a USB hub

Call/End buttons - Quickly make a call. Always something present in Nokia phones and I've missed this in the N900

Note how they’re not just buttons, they tell you how many new messages/tweets and facebook messages.

The menu button is also interesting. It’s contextual. One tap to homescreen, swipe down to unlock, swipe up to control social networks without opening main screen. Maemo /MeeGo device definitely needs this.

I like the idea of a secondary “gesture area” like the Pre. But instead of being LED lights, we could have a full blown screen. I wanted something like this since the N95 – I always hoped the always present music buttons could alternatively morph into gaming buttons/camera buttons when appropriate (they kinda do with the N85 by changing backlighting).
