If you’re tired of the usual black, white or gray option for your Android smartphone, here’s one option you should look at—ADzero’s concept phone made out of bamboo. Conceptualized by Kieron-Scott Woodhouse, a 23 year old student from Middlesex University, the phone can set itself apart from the rest of the available options out there.

The body of the phone is a unibody design made from a single piece of a 4-year old piece of organic bamboo. As of this writing, there are no specific details on the hardware of the gorgeous (and economical looking) phone. But ADzero describes it as ‘approximately half the weight of an Apple iPhone, while boasting a larger screen.’ In addition, sources were able to confirm that the current prototype of the phone runs on the latest Android OS.

“The whole experience so far has been incredible and completely unexpected. Completing my final year and working has been challenging, but my course and the project complement each other well and it’s a great start of my career. I can’t wait to see my mobile phone in shops this year.” Keiron-Scott said.

 

Even though the device has only been spotted in China, there is a plan to ship the phone in UK boutique stores too. A US release is unsure, but what can we expect since there are no concrete details about release or hardware specifics. But if you’re in either China or the UK, do drop us a line if you spot any of these devices so we can see more of it.
