The DYA Cell Phone is a diagonally sliding mobile that changes the way we receive and make phone calls.

When not in use, the DYA Cell Phone slides back into a compact iPhone-esque shape. It also features unusually shaped round bubble buttons that give this concept phone a futuristic look.

DYA also has an elastic paint to help prevent damage.
