There’s a lot to love about the Hubble Phone by Turing Space Industries. It emulates the strangely beautiful clamshell format first seen in Nokia’s N93 phone, allowing you to not only flip but swivel your phone’s screen, as the camera sat on the hinge, turning your phone into a camcorder of sorts… a format that was a novelty and quite a success back in 2006. Not only does the Hubble Phone experiment with that format, it’s also almost 100% screen… ON BOTH SIDES. Running all around the front and the back on both components is a display unit that looks pretty stellar in the renders and the video, although we could do without the notch. (No, really, we could do without it.)
In order to achieve this stunning all-screen arrangement, Turing pushes all the peripherals to the side. Along with the camera (which boasts of 15x zoom), you’ve got a volume dial (yes, a rotating one), a power button, camera shutter button, sim card slot, and a USB Type-C charging port. The phone is said to run two Snapdragon 855 chipsets, be AR and VR compatible, and come with a hefty price tag of $2,750… but honestly, with a phone that’s so mesmerizingly beautiful, I bet people would pay that price.
