HubblePhone 2020 Dual-Screen Folding Smartphone with 5G Connectivity

Turing Space Industries (former Turing Robotic Industries) has unveiled a concept for its next smartphone. The HubblePhone is a multi-screen smartphone that’ll be powered by dual mobile processors and support 5G connectivity when it arrives in mid-2020. The HubblePhone will feature four screens. Running all around the front and the back on both components is a display unit that looks pretty stellar in the renders and the video. In fact, you’ll probably struggle to find a part of the phone that isn’t a screen. In order to achieve this stunning all-screen arrangement, Turing pushes all the peripherals to the side. Along with the camera (which boasts of 15x zoom), you’ve got a volume dial, a power button, camera shutter button, sim card slot, and a USB Type-C charging port. The phone is said to run two Snapdragon 855 chipsets, be AR and VR compatible, and come with a hefty price tag of $2,750 but honestly, with a phone that’s so mesmerizingly beautiful, people would pay that price. And be sure to check other futuristic smartphones: Apollo 1 and Vertu’s Signature Touch Teal Fluted Edition.

Legend Is Back: Brand New Nokia 3310

It’s hard to imagine a phone that exudes quality more than the iconic Nokia 3310, so it’s easy to see why the world was so excited to hear that nokia were bringing back the nostalgic model at MWC 2017. Strong, sturdy and dependable, the so called “brick phone” is synonymous with indestructible, and the classic model appeared yesterday with a serious revamp for its 2017 comeback. Launched in Barcelona for MWC day 0, Nokia describe the new 3310 as “a head turning modern twist on one of the best-selling feature phones of all time.” It’s hard to improve on perfection, but the reliable model returns with an updated user interface, color screen, and 2 MP camera. The phone has shed pounds for its modern reappearance, showing off a slim, colorful design, and will be available in warm red, yellow, dark blue and grey. The updated classic harks back to the days when you could leave the house without a charger in hand, boasting a month long stand-by and a 22-hour talk time. The phone also now incorporates a headphone jack, micro USB charger, and new 2.4″ polarized, curved screen window for better readability in sunlight. The phone will of course feature the iconic “snake” – in fact, a new version of the nostalgic game will be available to play on messenger as part of Facebook’s instant games cross-platform experience. The relaunch of the 3310 is more than just a comeback for the iconic brick, and MWC marked the reinsertion of the trusty Nokia brand into the smartphone market.

Drawing on the hallmarks of the Nokia heritage of quality, simplicity and reliability, the range is designed for a new generation of fans. The phones are due to be available in Q2 2017.
