Sony is one of the largest tech companies in the world, this is a company behind the immensely successful PlayStation consoles, while they’re involved in many other segments of the tech world as well. Sony’s TVs are also quite successful, as are their camera sensors which are being used not only in digital cameras, but also by tons of smartphones all over the world. That being said, Sony’s mobile branch isn’t doing all that well, the company hasn’t exactly been selling tons of smartphone in recent years, and that’s definitely hurting their profits. In any case, Sony is expected to introduce yet another flagship before the end of this year, at least if they’re going to stick to their release cycle, and while we’re waiting to hear more about that, let’s check out a new concept that surfaced recently, read on.
From time to time, we get to see really interesting smartphone concepts, and today’s Sony Shadow smartphone concept is quite unique. This concept was designed by Hege, as were many other concepts we’ve shared with you in the last couple of years. In any case, this smartphone actually sports two displays, one on top of the other. Now, the displays the designer envisioned for this smartphone are actually Royole’s displays which do exist. These two displays are only 0.01mm thick each, which makes it quite possible to stack them on top of the other. Now, the Sony Shadow can actually use both of those displays at the same time, the upper displays can be opened and lifted to a 45-degree angle in order to give you a more comfortable view, while the entire lower display can be used as a keyboard, joystick, etc.
The phone’s physical keys are integrated into the device’s side, and the phone also comes with front-facing speakers, and an LED notification light is also available here. The phone’s battery is removable, while a secondary battery is integrated inside of the phone, it’s relatively small unit though, but it gives you more than enough juice to replace your removable battery if needed, so that you don’t have to turn off the device while you do it, it makes your battery hot-swappable basically. The designer has envisioned the specs of this device as well, the Sony Shadow is fueled by the Snapdragon 830 SoC, while it packs in 6GB of RAM and ships with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
