You know when..

you bend a thin piece of plastic 180degress. Then put pressure on the bend and it just snaps?

Just don't put this in your back pocket. That's all I'm saying.

Doing a Gizmodo?

Art student renderings are news now?

Rendered 3rd party imaginings are rarely ever practical or influence anything.

I hope they've patented the idea

You wouldn't want anyone to get any ideas now would you?

You'll be hearing from my Fruity Lawyers

Dear Samsung, This is clearly a blatent copy of my client Apfel corp's original creation. ..

Your new phone has the same plastic body with buttons and a screen as my clients original creation .

Apfel Corps original creation was made some 390 years ago and marketed as a Harpischord tuning device. Therefore all physical objects created in it's original image are subject to copyright.

Whilst writing I am also instructed to inform you that the blank sheet of A4 paper in front of you is similarly a illegal copy of Apfel Corps 1731 invention of a blank sheet of paper.

In that the look and feel, shape, colour and number of corners does correspond with my clients original creation.

We estimate the damages caused by your breach of these Apfel Corps copyright at One Trillion United States Dollars per illegal copy.

Please remit same within 24 hours and cease and desist to use blank sheets of A4 paper forthwith.

Mssrs Sue, Grabbit & Run -Attorneys at Law.

Nice - but...

...most things over at Yanko require at least one fundamental law of Nature to be rewritten; two if it's more complex than a cup holder.

Specifications

According to the specs, the phone has a 4" screen. That must mean it's about an inch across - no wonder it seems to change size in every render. It also has a resolution of 800 x 480, which must make for some awfully long and skinny rectangular pixels.

Really, if these guys going to dignify flights of fantasy like this with the term "design", they might at least spend five minutes making up plausible sounding specifications.
