My Dream Nokia #70 comes from Vilim Plužarić, an industrial designer and philosopher from Zagreb. He’s based in Croatia and is working as a freelance designer as well as writing articles for Gadgeterija.net. He previously designed concepts for the iPhone 5 and works on the “Apple Conspiracy project”. I’m pleased he’s taking an interest in Nokia concepts too.
Vilim emailed us his to help spread his new concept called the Nokia Lumia FX800. It’s somewhat higher end than the 920 with a larger 4.65″ display.
This is the back story behind the titanium built Lumia FX800
The story behind Lumia FX800 is a true rivalry to iPhone 5. It draws its inspiration from 2002 model 8910 Titanium in terms of material, stealth-bomber-looking X7 and of course, the already iconic design of N9/Lumia 800. Its name represents the visual effect, the “FX”. This one is not in color, as opposed to other Lumia range. It will come in titanium unibody and packed in extremely thin chassis.
It’s intended is to be limited edition, high-priced, high-class and high-style smartphone that puts style over innovation. Innovation is presented through Lumia 920, but it comes at the cost of bulky body. This one has almost same specs, without innovative technologies, but on the other hand, it comes in a sleek and classy form. It’s purpose is not to do harm to Lumia 920 sales, but to cover style-conscious market, and certainly market largely covered by iPhone.
It utilizes the same 4.65″ AMOLED screen seen in 2011 model from Samsung, the Galaxy Nexus. Nokia uses those AMOLEDs for their Lumias 800 and 900 with addition of their own ClearBlack technology. It is the larger screen than in Luima 900, but it keeps the same device dimensions. Unfortunately, there are no non-PenTile HD AMOLEDs from Samsung right now for the diagonals below 5.5″, so it has to suffice.
Feel free to contact me in case you have some questions and remarks.
Very slim, same footprint as the 900 except with less bezel so more screen.
About “My Dream Nokia”
I’m sure you’ve dreamt up your PERFECT Nokia device/UI. What it would look like, what it would feel like, what features it would have. Why don’t you share it with the world? Or at least with other Nokia fans .
It could be your own photoshopped or rendered work (seriously, you don’t need mega skills in either, basic paint job is often enough to convey a concept) of your dream product.
SEND this in similarly to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title “My Dream Nokia” and perhaps the model number (and a little description, maybe a few specs in the message area? Though this bit not necessary).
Who knows, maybe an image might flutter over to Nokia and through whatever route end up being real.
Cheers Vilim Plužarić!
