Why is this weird iPhone 13 M1 concept so compelling?

Why is this weird iPhone 13 M1 concept so compelling?

There's an iPhone 13 M1 concept phone making the rounds this week with a design that's quite odd. The design sits on the edge of a nightmare, pushing the top of the phone up on one half, while the other stays down, making room for a set of front-facing cameras and/or sensors. If this concept were done with less finesse, it would be pretty easy to dismiss. But for some reason, it looks amazing.

TCL Fold ‘n’ Roll concept mixes folding, rolling OLED with good reason

TCL plans to launch a commercial flexible smartphone this year, but until then it's unveiled an even more unusual concept, with the TCL Fold 'n' Roll combining both folding and rolling mechanisms.

Jeep Magneto concept is a six-speed Wrangler EV that bucks the status-quo

Jeep may not have given us a fully-electric Wrangler yet, but its Jeep Magneto BEV concept is a tempting teaser of just what that might look like - and how it might distinguish itself from most other EVs. Unveiled as part of the Easter Jeep Safari 2021, the automaker's concept-heavy annual event, the goal of the Magneto concept is to demonstrate that embracing electrification needn't mean sacrificing what off-road enthusiasts love.

LG rollable phone might be gone for good

LG rollable phone might be gone for good

South Korean sources suggest this week that LG's sent word of a halting of efforts for their future rollable phone. This conceptual effort was meant to be a real deal, at some point - a phone with a display that'd effective unfurl like a scroll. But now, amid the restructuring of the LG smartphone business in general, it would appear that any sort of "rollable" smartphone efforts will need to be done by a different company, one more prepared to drop cash on such a risky endeavor.
