LG recently showed off design for its latest phone that looks to take a different direction from its previous lineup.
LG states that its new minimal design language for the smartphone is “a nod to the natural world with a visual form factor that differs from the industry trend”.
True to its word, the phone’s new design is honestly one of the most unique looks I’ve seen on a smartphone. It looks really clean and has a pretty futuristic look from my perspective.
Compared to their previous smartphones, they all mostly looked the same with their cameras being the only thing that differentiates them.
Leading the design is a new ‘raindrop’ look on its three rear cameras, coupled with an LED flash. The main camera is positioned slightly above the surface. The other two lenses are seamlessly placed under the glass.
LG is purposely straying away from adopting the squarish camera bumps that most other smartphones are doing today.
The design also results in less space being taken up on the back of the phone, sporting an overall sleeker look.
Another design element that’s been teased to debut is a ‘3D Arc Design’. The design makes the smartphone’s display and rear edges symmetrically curved and provide a more natural feel in hand.
Vice President Cha Yong-duk, head of LG’s Mobile Communications Design Lab, said in a statement, “Our upcoming smartphone will draw on the rich history of classic LG designs which have always been distinctive at first touch.
“This handset will be a first-look at the competitive edge we will be bringing to every LG smartphone going forward.”
