Update: It’s available for pre-order, you can get new updated version details from this page: Symetium Smartphone PC.
The Symetium is a no compromise phone focused on design symmetry and build quality/material with features such as the inbuilt android desktop UI that activates when the phone is docked, to the Sony Xmor RS sensor with Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash, the bottom notification light also acts as a gesture controlled menu button.
This concept phone features customized cyanogen mod operating system with focus on simplicity and design, another software feature is notifications, on normal android the notification bar often gets FILLED with icons of apps notifying you, my idea is to simply have it all in one icon, so if there were 10 notifications then it would show as a flag with the number 10 next too it or a bell or simply a number, not entirely decided yet.
RGB lit control notification orb, this is the little ring at the bottom, you swipe over it (left) to go back, you double tap it to open recent tasks you press it to go home or open the app drawer you hold it to go home while emptying recent apps, this orb should function as a tiny mousepad.
When in Desktop mode, it allows the phone to turn into a full fledged computer when docked wirelessly to a docking station that’s connected to a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Its inbuilt super permission switch (root) and boot menu similar to a UEFI bios where you can monitor crucial information store up to 10 ROMs in a virtual environment etc to access tap the power button on boot inspired by the way you access a bios sort of.
When in Nighttime mode, this feature can be simple or more extensive, the simple approach is having the phone simply detect if it’s been woken up after 6+ hours where the screen will be very dim and then slowly increase, the smarter approach is the phone detecting when it’s night and waking up with a dim screen then depending on preference slowly increase in brightness.
There’s a dedicated GPS chip that runs along side the phone with it’s own non removable battery, to control or turn off this chip you need to connect the phone to a computer and insert a password, estimated battery life is over a month and it will constantly track the phone upon the users request, there’s no way to stop it without finding a way into the software, i came up with this because tracking can easily be turned off by turning off a phone or by wiping it, this way the phone will still be tracked even when it’s off, this can both aid in retrieving the phone after various scenarios, it also makes it impossible to do anything with the phone if someone has gotten access too it, unless that someone takes it apart.
