Google Nexus 360 concept: an innovative smartphone that slips around the wrist

Google Nexus 360 concept phone is a smartphone and a wristband from 91 Mobiles. Check the details of this groundbreaking creation that has the potential of becoming a fad.

The Google Nexus 360 concept phone, conceptualized by 91 Mobiles provides a sneak peek into what smartphones might evolve into, in the future. 91 Mobiles, a pioneer in gadget research has fashioned a futuristic mobile phone that while being avant-garde, offers a sleek design, functionality and style. The Google Nexus 360 concept may possibly appear an idealistic vision, but the revolutionary idea is sure to grab attention, and become a reality.

Concept phones are often ingenious designs with a wow factor, and nothing else - they fail to deliver, in terms of practicality. Only a few concepts go beyond the initial wow, to being actually viable - they create a blue print for future innovations. The right attitude behind concept creations is to design gadgets that can shift from drawing boards to production floors, without a glitch. The Google Nexus 360 concept phone is one such gadget.

Merging of technologies

The aesthetically smart Google Nexus encompasses two trending technologies (smartphone & smartwatch), into one smart device, without undermining the operation of either device. 91 mobiles collated ideas, considered existing archetypes and revolutionary technologies to form a multi-processing smart device that can be worn on the wrist, and function like a smartphone. It is a realistic concept with a single device having the capacity to carry out multiple functions; much like the phablet, but with a great deal more convenience.

Flexi design

The material envisioned by the developers at 91 mobiles is malleable, featherweight and resistant to water, scratches and dust. However, this is not some imaginary material; an analogous substance invented by Dai-Nippon Printing quite similar in properties is being used to build the LG G Flex. The Nexus 360 of course will require further advanced technology that produces a more pliable material.

The hi-tech device that bears a resemblance to smartphones switches into a wrist band effortlessly. With retractable straps concealed at the back of the device, strapping it on the wrist is simple.

The detachable Bluetooth is another smart inclusion on the concept device. It is designed for use when the contrivance is shifted to the watch mode.
The Bluetooth ear piece is innovative too, with an easily bent ear hook that adds to the comfort of the user. The ear piece can be made straight and placed inside a designated recess for recharging and easy storage.


A ground-breaking concept will involve nothing short of the best innovative technology to operate.

It is a clever design where the camera can be swivelled to face the user. This is an interesting feature that comes in handy for video conferencing and clicking HD selfies.
