Rather than following the trend and create a rectangular smartphone, Monohm has created a unique circular smartphone that has been designed to run Mozilla’s Firefox OS mobile operating system and is constructed using a wooden outer case.
The wooden case provides a much more tactile feel when compared to the colder glass and aluminium devices that are available from other manufacturers, and its creators have taken inspiration from the age old pocket watch for the design for their new smartphone.
The circular smartphone camera is positioned directly in the middle of the device on the rear and the smartphone features a round touchscreen display at the front. With connectivity provided by Bluetooth, wireless and LTE for making phone calls and surfing the Internet.
Unfortunately no details on pricing or worldwide availability have been announced as yet but Monohm has announced that Japanese carrier KDDI will start offering the new circular smartphone as an addition to their range of devices later this year.
As always when more information becomes available with regard to prices specifications and availability we will keep you updated as always.
