Yeah we always knew nature was the best damn designer. It sure did take us humans to swallow our pride and admit the fact but I’m glad we did. And a great testament of the superiority of nature’s designs is this LG Synthesis concept phone created by Andrew Suenghyun Kim for the LG design competition that ended last month. As the name would suggest, the concept phone is based on the process of photosynthesis and though the phone does not use the solar-charging concept of the flora entirely, it does use solar panels on the face to charge the Bluetooth headset. The stunning looking phone features a single piece of scratch resistant tempered glass face which adds another coat of super glossy touch and feel to the 3.5-inch AMOLED touch display while a glossy white trim which elegantly curves to the back frames the leaf reminiscent design. With touches of purple adding warmth to the design, a warm glow of led lights pulsates at the lower front of the phones face symbolizing energy of life.
The UI of the device is directed within the design itself, responding with input touch, assisted by haptic response where the device vibrates when touched. Floating bubbles complete the plant analogy while the UCI (User Created Interface) support makes the experience completely adaptable to the user. The back of the device features a 5mp camera as well as a rubberized cover for easier handling while the front of the phone features a hidden forward facing 1.3mp camera for video conferencing.
The device has 16GB SSD Solid State Drive with the option of 32 GB while a wireless charging and speaker dock is made to resemble the branch of a tree. The concept looks like a true fantasy/fashion phone to have and we sincerely hope LG decide to put this beauty into production.
