Talk about pushing boundaries. Whilst this is completely unrealistic to appear this year, it’s not totally impossible in the future.

This is called the Windows Phone Surface N. I’m going to pretend the N is for Nokia and not Nova. It is designed byย KuanGaa Chen.

It has a 4K holographic screen for presenting cool things or more practical things like 3D maps, 4K recording, emotion theme bezel (pretty cool, change your lumia colours on the go) and a lytro camera. We know Nokia’s trying to add lytro-style imaging in future Lumias. You can even try a simulated lytro on your lumia already with this app, Refocus.

Changeable edge colours. Colourful phones screen Nokia ๐Ÿ˜€3



Very little bezel on the front. The WP buttons are still there though (vs on screen)4

Here’s their notification centre. A swipe from the main tiles (which oddly seem WP7.5 and not 8 though they are a lot more ‘active’ in the sense that video is being shown in tiles). It’s clean and very Metro.


The app menu seems better organised.

The lytro camera.6 7

It’s in video form so it looks even more swish and fancy.

    This is 100% Microsoft and their goal actually is this. There is no need for Branded hardware like Nokia Lumia etc. Just OS brand and perfect hardware. Sure this is not going to happen any time soon but software and ecosystem is key for company to success not the hardware patents as they aren’t under one company and patents with hardware is not forever.

    operating systems with good ecosystems and services will give you unlimited control in future and mobile companies like Nokia will die out.

    Future is big screen panels with no logo’s anywhere. Only software/ecosystem has the brand and meaning.


      “….. in future and mobile companies like Nokia will die out.”

      yes because the billions of people in the world who can’t afford a feature-phone will rush out and buy this smart-phone.


    • Not from what I’m seeing. Html5 means the hardware, not the ecosystem rules. One uses all.

    Is this phone using WP7 ?
