After MrMobile announced that he would once again visit a legendary phone number from the past, Juho Sarvikas contacted him and shared some Nokia Mobile ideas when he heard that the Nokia N95 originality will become the star in MrMobile’s YT video. What he shared are concept drawings of a smartphone with a sliding mechanism to reveal the external speaker and the selfie camera behind the screen. He also submitted a dormant prototype to MrMobile to show that Nokia Mobile is indeed developing a lot of concepts when looking for an end product. After the video was released, Juho also shared a render of the Nokia 6.3 prototype with the sliding screen mechanism. They’re exploring different slide directions like sliding top, bottom, side, or even the corner of the screen, but that idea may have been brought back to the drawer.
Well, it looks like the whole idea of having a sliding mechanism is to reveal something hidden behind the screen, and that could just be the bee speaker, the camera and the LED flash and maybe some object buttons. additional reason. Leaving the speakers hidden behind the screen is probably pointless because you can’t use their full potential if the screen covers them. Users will have to slide the screen and open them for each small video or just keep the device open, which reduces the ergonomics. Actually, there are some good solutions for stereo speakers currently in use, so that approach can be taken instead of placing it behind the screen.
The only good reason to have the sliding mechanism is to hide the selfie camera, which is something Xiaomi did very nicely with the Mi Mix 3. That phone looks great, uses the entire screen, but the camera will always full. dust, so you will have to clean it more often.
Another reason for the sliding mechanism is to hide a full qwerty keyboard, something Nokia has done very nicely with the Nokia E7, Nokia N900 or Nokia N950. A full physical qwerty keyboard is something that might be of interest to some people, but to have a large screen above it maybe having a virtual qwerty keyboard is pointless, except you are a fast finger type. , Machete.
Somehow I don’t think we’ll see a full physical qwerty keyboard on a Nokia phone, as well as a Dolby speaker behind the screen, but having a top-down slide mechanism reveals a great selfie camera. with Zeiss lenses will be very interesting. There could also be some space for physical or virtual controls on the other side, which might still remind us of the N95 and give us some extra usability of the device. LG has been playing with that extra LCD display, so there may be at least one e-ink display for some additional controls, some like the Asus ZenBook that comes on the touchpad.
I am very glad that Nokia mobile phones are experimenting with new designs and maybe there is a Nokia phone with completely free display, with a small notch on the side that will carry the Nokia logo just like Nokia N900 .
