Nexus X Concept Shows Us The True Meaning Of Having No Bezel
Concept designs are always great fun; although they may never come to fruition or be ever truly realised, the designs that artists from all over come up with can be really amazing and innovative, raising our expectations for what is possible and what should be possible. This Nexus X concept comes from TheTechnoToast over at Deviantart, showing us his interpretation of what a “premium Nexus smartphone” should look like.
The concept is accompanied by a set of features which includes:
- a 3.2 GHz octo-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 2000 with 6GB of RAM;
- a 6.5 inch super AMOLED 4K display covered with unscratchable Sapphire Crystal;
- a 6000mAh battery which lasts 5 days on a single charge;
- Android 4.5 with 3 options: Stock Android, a skinned version (shown above) or rooted w/Cyanogenmod;
- a transparent 5MP front facing “invis” camera and speaker, hidden behind display;
- a 30MP back facing 8K camera
- Windows RT, Chrome OS and Ubuntu Ready (multi boot)
There’s definitely some really interesting ideas in there, in particular the camera hidden behind the display. While I don’t know if this is actually physically feasible, it’s a very cool idea, as are a number of the features listed, though some are just a little out of reach (6,000mAh battery, if only). As for the physical design of the Nexus X concept, TheTechnoToast says that the enclosure is made from “a single piece of matte stainless steel”, and as you can see, there is basically no space between the screen and the edge of the device. And how much with this piece of drool-worthy technology cost? £400 for the basic 16GB, LTE-enabled version which works out to be about $650 USD. Not bad for something that’s basically a high-performance computer in a 6.5-inch body.
