Smartphone manufacturers have launched a number of smartphones with innovative designs this year. So here are the best smartphones with innovative designs launched in 2022.
Nothing Phone 1 with Glyph Interface
In 2022, a number of smartphones have made their way into the smartphone market. One of the smartphones that became famous was the Nothing Phone (1). The phone has a transparent back with LED lights highlighting key features in the phone. Interestingly, these LED lights or in other words the Glyph Interface can be customized. This means that users can set a custom ringtone for a contact and the flash strips will sync with the ringtone. Users can turn this feature on or off at certain times of the day.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro with Dynamic Island
Ever since the display notch was first introduced with the iPhone X, it has been an integral yet incredibly unnecessary part of the smartphone. Sure, it houses a front-facing camera, but most smartphone manufacturers have failed to innovate on this feature other than by introducing smaller, more concise notches. This year, Apple revamped the display notch on its iPhone 14 Pro line with Dynamic Island, which expands to give users access to their notifications and alerts and touch events, and easy access to music or maps.
Vivo V25 Series Color Changing Back Panel
Most smartphone users buy a smartphone in a particular color and then stick with it for a few years, even if they don’t like it later until it’s time to buy a new smartphone. In 2022, Vivo proved that having a phone in one color is a bit boring. Basically, why settle for just one when you can have more. With its V25 and V25 Pro smartphone, the company introduced smarter back panels that change colors under the sun.
Infinix Phantom X2 Pro retractable camera
We’ve seen a lot of innovation around cameras in smartphones over the years, like the pop-up cameras of the Vivo V15 Pro and V17 Pro and the flip camera of the Asus Zenfone 6. This year, Infinix launched the Phantom X2 Pro with a retractable portrait lens that slides out and retracts when in use out. This lens allows the phone to maintain a sleek body while also featuring a lens with a wider aperture.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra doesn’t bring a never-before-seen design to the table. But it will resurrect the long-dead Galaxy Note series. The series was popular among the masses for bringing tablets and fables to a simple smartphone. However, Samsung canceled it due to a shift in focus to foldable devices. With the Galaxy S22 Ultra, users get a premium smartphone with a large display and a stylus, which is a unique offering in the smartphone market today.
