Phone Loves to Tan

The first thing you notice about the Double phone are the solar cells across its facade. The second thing you notice is the 360º hinge.  Pretty cool looking concept with the added benefit of never running out of power as long as the sun is up. Spec wise, the 3.2 inch LCD screen, touch interface and transparent panel for notifications is more than enough to keep up with the big boys in the market.


The Double is a Red Dot Concept Design winning entry.

Designer: ZTE Corporation

    You do realize that the surface area of a cell phone is nowhere near enough to charge anything resembling more than a laughable trickle, right? Might as well "design" a phone with a portable fusion reactor in it….

      And what about series of industrially manufactured phones with solar panels on the back? Manufacturers guarantee a full charge the phone from the built-in solar cell.
