Xiaomi, Motorola, OnePlus and many other brands have announced their new devices in 2023. Among the released devices there are undoubtedly good-looking models, but there are also some strangely designed ones. Take a look at the weirdest smartphones unveiled in 2023, whose design seems to be interesting for many users.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra Concept
The Xiaomi 12S Ultra Concept is the external camera lens attachable version of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. Equipped with a 1-inch Sony IMX-989 camera sensor, this device caused quite a stir in the first days after its release. Shortly after the 12S Ultra went on sale, the 12S Ultra Concept version with support for Leica M lenses was announced at MWC 2023. Just like a DSLR camera, you can use a real camera lens on this device and capture DSLR camera performance on your mobile device.
The design of the device is a bit different from ordinary smartphones for the technologies it promises. The camera area on the back is quite large and has a protruding structure so you can attach an external lens. The 1-inch sensor in the center of the rear camera area reminds of a DSLR camera without a lens at first glance.
OnePlus 11 was launched in January 2023 and is the brand’s latest flagship model. Since OnePlus 10, the camera setup of OnePlus flagship models has been oriented to the left. Users familiar with the center-facing camera setups say that the back is unattractive at first glance. The OnePlus 11 uses Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and is available with 8/16 GB RAM and 128/256/512 GB storage.
The Honor X9A is a mid-range smartphone from the brand. With a 6.67-inch 120Hz AMOLED display, this model offers users a good overall performance for its price. Powered by the Snapdragon 695 chipset, the phone has 6/8 GB RAM and 128/256 GB internal storage options. Honor X9a, which comes with a 64 + 5 + 2 MP camera setup on the back, is a little odd at first glance on the rear camera array. Although the ring-shaped rear camera array is reminiscent of HUAWEI’s Mate 40 series, the camera ring is quite large and thus the center of the camera placement is quite disproportionate.
Motorola Rizr : The Weirdest Smartphone in 2023
The Motorola Rizr is a smartphone that was presented to users as a prototype at MWC 2023. In addition to the usual smartphone designs, it has a completely different structure. The Motorola Rizr has an extending screen and can transform from a small smartphone to a large smartphone in no time. The smallest version of this smartphone is 5 inches tall and has a 15:9 aspect ratio, while the longest version is 6.5 inches tall and has a 22:9 aspect ratio. This model, which is not available in retail stores for now, is only a concept device. As the technology develops, smartphones with similar structures could hit the market in the coming years.
Among the weirdest smartphones that will be launched in 2023, the most interesting model is the Motorola Rizr. The smartphone, which has an beyond the age screen structure, can be made smaller or larger depending on the user’s preference. Thank you to the increasing technological innovations, the smartphone industry is taking a step forward with each passing day. In the future, we may see interesting smartphones with completely different structures. In your opinion, which is the weirdest smartphone on the list?
