The 'Alo' future smartphone concept identifies how we could anticipate smartphone design to shift as we move further into the future with the device at the epicenter.
The 'Alo' smartphone does away with the screen in a bid to make the device used via a vocalized interface that can be spoken to and that will read pertinent content to users.
The 'Alo' can be spoken to in order to draft emails and texts, and also offers a 3D hologram projector that can be used for multimedia purposes or to visually see a message that has come through.
The 'Alo' future smartphone concept is the design work of France-based designers Philippe Starck and Jerome Olivet. The icy design could mark a shift in smartphone design away from bigger devices with larger screens to a phone with no screen space.
