Thanks to Orbit’s Clever Trick, This Foldable and Seemingly Transparent Could be The Future iPhone

What more could you have possibly asked for……….


Smartphones with flexible displays and / or bodies are long overdue, but “The Orbit” could give us a glimpse at what’s to come in the near future of iPhone.

Could this ‘Orbit’ conceptby Brazil-based industrial designer Lucas Couto be a peek into the future of iPhone? If so, you might be wishing it becomes reality because the stylish design is an eye-catching bendable, bezel-less dream

Couto explains on his online portfolio, 

Orbit phone is a conceptual project idealized to test new interactions and materials possibilities for the smartphone market.”

Its bezel-less makeup includes a transparent OLED display that renders the front-facing camera visible when needed. It carries “a notion of transparency” where one of the cameras works continuously, and syncs with the phone, to project the phone’s real-world backdrop on to its display, thus mimicking what it would be like to have a transparent phone.

A flexible OLED screen combined with ductile enclosure supports the hardiness of the gadget. Its buttons, which were inspired by the vintage calculator ‘Olivetti Divisumma 18’, are designed seamlessly into its enclosure. ‘Orbit’ also offers a circular ring flash to assist in picture taking at varied light intensities.

Seeing as how the latest iPhones have been rid of the headphone jack, ‘Orbit’ strips the smartphone of its next-to-go charging port, leaving it fully wireless when it comes to refuelling.

The phone and wireless charger’s matching fabric covers were intended to give the gadgets a “contemporary aesthetic” and help protect their surfaces.

The model, which clearly takes a lot of its design cues from the iPhone, has no headphone jack which, no doubt because of Apple's recent introduction of wireless Air Pods. And in what is an appropriate prediction for their future generations, the charging port has also been removed, allowing the phone to be thinner and lighter," according to Design Boom.

2020 still feels like an ambitious timeframe, that’s ‘just’ two generations away from the current phones … which are decidedly rigid. But they are not that far away too. Just have patience……...
