It has been quite a while since we featured any concept BlackBerry designs here on the blogs but when we saw the 'BlackBerry Concept' from Albert Degin, we simply had to bring some more attention to it because it looks so amazing! Take a look at what Albert had to say about why he created the design, the inspiration he drew from, and of course, more photos!
Smartphone manufactures once attracted customers with a thin all-metal body. A little bit later, they attracted with the processor cores number, and then with the camera pixels number and the second supporting camera module.
Now we can see how the thickness, number of cores and second cameras in smartphones are not the main criteria for selection. And the all-metal body began to appear in most modern smartphones, thereby reducing the obvious differences in design.
From this year, manufacturers are trying to reduce the screen frame. And yes, now it looks attractive. But will future smartphones be all as one without frames and look alike? Well, how should manufactures stand out?
BlackBerry is one of the few companies that does not follow main fashion trends, but moves in its own way, albeit not very successful. For this, they can be respected. But why don't people buy their products? Of course, from the latest product is worth noting – "KEYone", and before – "Passport Silver Edition", even earlier – "Classic" model and so on.
They look awesome. At the first sight, you can see the recognizable "BlackBerry spirit". But all these phones have a physical keyboard, which does not quite fit the definition of a mass modern smartphone. In my opinion, BlackBerry keyboardless models are not so attractive and devoid of this "spirit."
Of course, with it being a concept device and nothing in the way like those pesky parts pricing, availability and all that, there's no reason to skimp out on the specs and the BlackBerry Concept comes loaded up with lots of goodies. Obviously, we're looking at a Dream Berry here but sound off in the comments with what you think of the design and what would make up your Dream Berry if you had your druthers.
