BenQ Concept Phones

BenQ's design house Product Visionaries has just revealed a series of concept phones that point to company's future design direction. Foremost among them is the as yet unnamed touchscreen concept (shown). Dominated by a large display as with the iPhone, the demonstration model uses a sliding control panel to change its control method: bringing the pad to the middle converts the interface into a traditional phone design, while sliding it back creates extra room for videos or other music files.

Other examples produced from BenQ include a completely bendable model, whose snake-like shape could wrap around its owner's wrist, and an angular model with asymmetric keys and a display that can both tilt and swivel independently of the main body. The designs are not anticipated for a near-future release but are said to be based on real, achievable designs. Click through for a gallery. [via Portable Gadgets]
