LG has just released an announcement revealing its plans for the design of its upcoming smartphone. According to the company, the idea is to revolve around the element of nature and break the norm of today’s smartphone designs.
“Our upcoming smartphone will draw on the rich history of classic LG designs which have always been distinctive at first touch,” said vice president Cha Yong-duk, head of LG’s Mobile Communications Design Lab. “This handset will be a first-look at the competitive edge we will be bringing to every LG smartphone going forward.”
For starters, gone will be the usual square camera cluster that overly protrudes. Instead, the new design will have a nature-inspired “Raindrop” camera comprising of three rear shooters and an LED flash in descending order by size. LG says it evokes images of falling raindrops and overall takes up less space on the rear of the phone, making it look cleaner.
Additionally, the company’s upcoming phone will have a 3D Arc Design with the edges of the display and rear to be symmetrically curved. This basically translates to less sharp edges and, in turn, the phone should have a more natural feel when you hold it when compared to previous LG phones.
So far, the South Korean company is hinting on a fresh design with a premium feel for its handset. As to when this new phone will emerge, LG is yet to confirm. Although there have been reports of an upcoming LG phone set in mid-May so we’ll just have to wait and see the entire device when it goes official.
