Google Nexus P3 prototype reveals smartphone with QWERTY keyboard, gamepad and 4,700 mAh battery module
If you could decide what you want that your next smartphone to have? What would that be, besides great internals and eye-catching exterior, obviously? Student designers Giuseppe Avanzato and Enrico Vicari presented their idea of what their dreamed Google Nexus could offer in the future. The design of the phone they call Nexus P3 is very similar to the current model of the Nexus 5 from slightly rounded corners to extremely narrow bezels.
Google Nexus P3 Modular Smartphone
However, there is one huge difference between the Nexus 5 and the Nexus P3. The prototype is a modular phone. It has kind of a tray that slides out to one side and can accommodate several additional accessories. The modules include a QWERTY keyboard, a gamepad and a larger 4,700 mAh battery. Other features of this imaginary phone include 5-inch IPS display, 12-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, stereo speaker, notification LED on the front panel and rubberized RGB strip.
Chances that Google would make such a phone are rather slim, at least in the near future. The company is already working on a modular phone which is developed as Project Ara. The idea is to give users as much freedom as possible in designing their own phone.
Unlike the Moto X which offers a variety of options regarding the appearance, Project Ara focuses on the hardware which would allow users to choose such configuration of components that would meet their needs perfectly. Although, the modular Nexus P3 is unlikely to materialize anytime soon, the idea is certainly interesting.
