Prior to 2007, before the arrival of the iPhone and its slab design, phone manufacturers were on a quest to find the perfect design, leading to some of the weirdest smartphones ever made. We got the gamepad Nokia N-Gage, the odd-shaped Siemens Xelibri series, and the unusual jewelry box design of the Samsung Serene.
It all changed after the 2007 Macworld convention. What happened at this event, you ask?
Well, the first generation iPhone did. Not only did it come with several innovative features, but it also had a form factor that was elegant and comfortable to use. Within two years, the new design would become the standard smartphone design.
But, the era of the slab of glass design may be coming to an end. With the flexible OLED display, now we can get smartphones that fold in all sort of ways. Unfortunately, the tech is still too new and pricey.
Instead, phone manufacturers are coming up with innovative improvements to give their products an edge over one another. While the market leaders tend to play it safe with a hole punch design, the small ones go all out with some of the weirdest smartphones we’ve ever seen.
From a phone that sees the blood in your veins, to a smartwatch with identity issues, here are five of the weirdest smartphones we’ve seen so far.
