Foldable Origami Mobile Phone concept

Origami phone concept from designer Chengyuan Wei is somewhat of an minimalist, artistic design. Considering that the basic electronic components of a mobile phone have been miniaturized enough, creating a phone like this won’t pose much of a problem, the unusual design and minimalist approach however, do make it more of a niche product.
