This is my entry for the Samsung / Dezeen 2019 design competition.
The Samsung Mobile Design Competition is a global contest that challenges contestants to come up with innovative new ways for Galaxy mobile devices to be used in the future.
I entered into the “Next Mobile + category” which tasked the contestants to design a new accessory for Galaxy devices which enhances the device and provides added value for the user.

my design revolves around the Samsung Galaxy Active Watch
What if you wanted to go to a festival and did not want to bring your big Galaxy S10 phone?
What if you could bring your Active Watch but still be able to make calls and take pictures to share with your instagram friends?
Introducing the Samsung Galaxy Watch Phone – an easy way to transform your Samsung Galaxy Active Watch into a lightweight phone
The phone is a lightweight, plastic device with some simple electronics built-in to connect it to the Galaxy Watch Active.
It is waterproof and rugged and can be used under a wide range of conditions. A simple numeric keypad allows for simple text entry as well as for dialling phone numbers.
A dedicated shoot button allows the user to make a quick photo and post it to his/her Instagram account.
For connectivity, it can either use the SIMcard in your Galaxy Active Watch or in your regular phone, or, you can simply use a seperate SIMcard.
A high quality image sensor from Samsung is integrated in the back, allowing the user to take beautiful pictures.
Just like on the front a dedicated ‘shoot button’ is placed on the back so that the user can easily take selfies and post them on his/her Instagram account.
