My Dream Nokia #74: Nokia Lumia 950 WP8 Concept, sexy curves and glowing colour notifications.

MNBLUMIA 950 FinalThe above design is the Nokia Lumia 950 concept, created by Industrial Design student, Zelig Fok.

I’m loving this design that’s curved at the front and back. It reminds me a bit of those curved Nokia concepts, but much nicer. It looks like a tasty bar of deliciousness. It looks a little thick in some places but I’m guessing were it an actual device, it won’t be that thick.

The top and bottom change colour and can light up for notifications. Neat! No need to worry about having a yellow/green/cyan etc phone. The colour is clear when off.

The back has a sliding lens cover to help avoid camera lens smudging that can render even the likes of N8/808 pictures poor.

The whole glass is wrap around, so no visible or palpable bezel anywhere.

Hey My Nokia Blog,
Attached is my dream nokia. I’m an industrial design student at the moment and sketched this concept up in sketchbook pro and photoshop. (I have yet to learn CAD so i cant make this like the other dream nokias featured. Also excuse the messy notes.)
Here’s the blurb behind the phone.
-Windows Phone 8 device, Havent decided on the internal specs
-Curved Gorilla Glass wrapped all around the phone for a no-bezel effect
-Ends of each phone made up of translucent plastic and will glow according to the theme color chosen in WP8. This can also be used as for notifications when the phone is in sleep: each end can glow according to a user-designated color (as illustrated in the blue highlighted bottom right sketch)
-I brought back the sliding lens cap from the N97s and back. Camera is the same pureview camera in the 808.
-Wireless charging of course, but still has the optional micro USB like the 920.
Hope you guys like it and it would be awesome to be featured on your blog.
-Zelig Fok

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 :D .

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 tips@mynokiablog.com 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 Zelig for the tip!

    I LOVE the notification light top and bottom, but full glass body would be broken in a sec.

      I HATE glowing stuff. It shouldn’t be intrusive. Just a small light will do. The phone doesn’t have to screm in your face that something has happened, city life is stressful enough without acid colors and annoying glowing things.

      Corning Glass the company behind Gorilla Glass are now perfecting a plastic bendable and unbreakable glass called Corning Willow Glass, which would be perfect for such phone … :)

    Make secondary display behind of the phone (like Yoda phone) for sleep screen as it is made from glass as well…

    It looks like a woman’s deodorant stick.

    Sculpted glass front and back means you can add a second E ink screen round the back for amazing battery life

    You guys are a f****** embarrassment to the meego community. The name lumia n950 defiles the iconic yet unreleased nokia N950.
