We also explored a wide range of sliding options. Objective was to secure usability in both landscape and portrait as well as comfortable single hand use. How do you like the "angle slider"? 😉 You get into some pretty wild mechanics with some of these pic.twitter.com/HHLdSCD17i— Juho Sarvikas (@sarvikas) November 7, 2020
Another interesting thing found in this render above is the time mentioned on the phone's display. Could this have been the Nokia 6.3 if had not been cancelled ? The camera housing design of the prototype is in line with the current Nokia smartphones and if this wasn't cancelled could we have seen this launch as a Nokia 6.3? The Nokia 6.3 is not yet released so let's see if it brings any features or design elements from this prototype HMD shared.
I personally would love HMD Global to think again and make this type of a smartphone a reality. What are your opinions about trying new form factors on touch screen smartphones? Would you buy a Nokia smartphone with slide-out camera and loudspeakers? Share your thoughts in the comments below. :)
