typical android phone with gesture area under LCD for buttons and swipes.
but interesting is back is E-ink display with gesture area for swipes.
swipe area is just like the pre but no light.
e-ink is used to display notifications and images that are always on and only consume power when refresh.
,
interview shows designer talking about phone and future designs, they have many ideas like palm.

Another nice find... The comments after the article are more interesting than the article itself.

"It looks boxy and slabby"

Could we finally be getting over the slab form factor??? Yeah for society if that is true.
