Live the NuAns NEO [Reloaded] life with the customizable smartphone that will blow your mind!
 
OVERVIEW
 
 
 
NuAns offers products that are designed to seek comfort. The NEO [Reloaded], which is made in Japan, offers the chance for users to find comfort in their device with interchangeable panels. With the adopted Android OS system, the reinvented NuAns NEO [Reloaded] will be available for shipping in September 2017.
 

The Word on NuAns NEO [Reloaded].

“The NuAns NEO [Reloaded] is solid without feeling overly dense, and though it will stretch your pockets more than the average smartphone, you can…make it double as a wallet.” – Engadget

“A welcome respite from the familiar-looking smartphones we have grown accustomed to over the years..” – Digital Trends

“What distinguishes NuAns NEO [Reloaded] from other smartphones on the market are the possibilities for customization…” – Web News

 

Concept: What is it?

Using textures and colors, while maintaining basic functionality and looks, we reviewed current smart phone lifestyles to understand what obstacles prohibit the euphoria that we call “comfort” in everyday technology. The NuAns NEO [Reloaded]’s sole mission is to seek that solution to comfort; with the new answer. The more we can blend the digital life into the comfort of our space, the easier it is to find that new answer.

 

What is a Comfortable Digital Life?

Comfort is something everyone can relate to. We strive for comfort in what we wear, where we sleep, and how we live. We asked ourselves, how do we find comfort in our smart phone devices? To find the answer we had to dissect what turns people off of current smartphones.

  • The panic during the loss of battery life.
  • The bulky design making smart phones hard to handle.
  • The cold, metallic, slippery texture.

 

Concept: Altering The Look.

For a tool that becomes the basis of your daily routine, you want a device that would perfectly integrate with your life – both at work and at home. A device that can naturally fit in your hands; flawlessly connected to you forming an emotional attachment to it.  Every day,  you bring things such as a bag, watch, stationery, or wallet with you. It’s the same with a smartphone, you carry it with you all the time. Wouldn’t it be nice to customize the “texture” of your smartphone so that it fits naturally in your hand and match it with a color that suits your taste? We analyzed a person’s lifestyle and redesigned the smartphone from scratch while considering every detail such as color, material, texture and shape.  

We sought out to design a device that blends into our hands and lifestyles by using natural materials which bring immediate comfort. In this new era, we have brought nuance to digital devices with new answers for our lifestyles.

 

Texture: The Ultimate Feels.

We wanted our main focus to be on the appearance and texture of the device. In addition to the daily functions of the device, we find ourselves simply holding it more often than not. For that reason, we decided that NuAns and the NuAns NEO series were going to bring aesthetics and texture to life.

Aside from existing materials such as tennâge, clarino, and ultrasuede, we added four additional materials: cork, denim, dotted ultrasuede, and stone to complement to your “texture” sensation. This is our concept for NuAns NEO [Reloaded], to deliver genuine touch, texture, and color to your everyday hand-held device. 

 

CORE: Styled by You.

The CORE, the center of NuAns NEO, was designed on the concept that it can be integrated with the exterior of the phone. The CORE represents everything we wanted in a smartphone device, while allowing you to personalize your device around the CORE. Hence, a little bit of us and a little bit of you!

Just like changing into clothes every day, you can change the exterior depending on the application of the phone and style you desire. The exteriors are two separate panels that are artfully designed using different textures; seamlessly unifying the exterior to the body of the phone.

 

TWOTONE: Mix and Match

TWOTONE covers are interchangeable and can be customized to your style. NuAns NEO [Reloaded] lets you enjoy more than 600 cover combinations along with those that were already released.  The simple panel design provides a variety of colors and material allowing users to interchange each panel freely. By being able to rearrange each panel freely, you can create your own TWOTONE variation!

In addition to changing covers, the TWOTONE case comes with a slot for credit cards behind the back panel. Simply remove the back panel and slide your credit card in for a night on the town!

With a simple back cover design called TWOTONE, we adopted an individualistic approach by letting you select from a variety of colors and materials that you can combine. You have the freedom to rearrange the color and material for the top and bottom covers, resulting in a unique two-tone design with different materials.  

You can also choose from a variety of cover textures – snug-fit, silky and dry, or a natural texture feel. The color and texture are tailor fit to your taste.  

Furthermore, the IC card can be quickly inserted by simply removing the bottom cover. This design enables you to charge your prepaid IC payment card in an instant. 

 

FLIP: Elevate the Appearance.

The FLIP hides the presence of your device with the capability to store multiple cards with it. Cases with card slots are usually unreliable and bulky, but the FLIP case attaches directly to the NuAns NEO blending in perfectly to the CORE. The self-standing FLIP was designed to feel as if it was part of the phone to begin with.

We know it’s important to you to always bring your important cards and not to forget them. Based on our extensive experience in designing smartphone accessories, we noticed that most consumers prefer the flip-type case. So we came up with an unconventional exterior design called FLIP that has two card pockets and a large storage pocket, apart from the backside IC card storage space. It even doubles up as a hands-free stand ideal for watching movies. Aside from that, the smartphone automatically turns on when the FLIP lid is opened and goes to sleep mode when closed. 

FLIP can also cover the camera lens to keep it from becoming a boring and cold “device”, providing you a sense of individuality with its warm material and unique color. It deviates from looking like a conventional digital device, but rather looks more like a notebook.  

 

Design: Structure is Key.

Most of the manufacturing companies are pursuing the world’s thinnest and lightest devices. However, those attributes are not the single answer to the “greatest smartphone every made”.  NuAns NEO [Reloaded] has our favorite attributes of a smartphone woven deeply in its CORE, proposing a change to the new digital lifestyle.

Q. Does the thinnest phone make it easier to handle and to perform daily functions?

A. Not always.

We wanted a device that had advanced tech in its CORE, yet provided convenient functionality when held in your hand. In lieu of seeking out the thinnest possible device, we substituted it with installing the latest technological advancements. We found that the NuAns NEO [Reloaded]’s 5.29 ounces was the perfect weight to its key attributes: comfortable handling, visually stunning, and functionally sound.

 

Display: Crystal Clear Display.

The display has a very narrow frame giving it a 5.2 inch full HD display from Sharp. The enlarged display area expands to the full width of the front cover glass, It is almost frameless. Corresponding to a wide color range, the high-definition and beautiful display reaches 428 ppi pixel density and 1920 x 1080 pixels, that has improved not just by specs, but also by using the best quality display.

*iPhone 7:  Screen size 4.7 inches, Resolution 750 x 1334 pixels (~326 ppi pixel density)

 

Screen: Indestructible Glass.

NuAns NEO [Reloaded] adopted the latest model of Asahi Glass “Dragontrail Pro”. Making it the first model in the world to tackle strengthening the cover glass while making full use of its characteristic rounded shape. Furthermore, the surface of the cover glass has an anti-fingerprint coating that helps suppress the reflection of light with high transparency. 

 

Security: Fingerprint Sensor.

Various kind of information gathers on smartphones in this modern society. For both security control of information and safety when you use the device, the unlocking function of the biosensor is indispensable. In NuAns NEO [Reloaded], has adopted a fingerprint sensor to eliminate the inconvenience of entering a security passcode every time to make it easy to use. 

  

Memory: Abundant Data Capacity.

The basic specification of NEO matches up to the high-end devices. Main memory carries 3GB so that it can work smoothly using multiple Apps at the same time. The Inner Flash Memory has 32GB of storage. With a MicroSD Card you can use up to 1TB of extra storage, so there is no need to worry about taking too many pictures or long videos.  

 

Battery: Quick Charge Port with USB Type-C.

The inner battery of the NuAns NEO [Reloaded] has a 3,540mAh capacity, which is approx.2 times larger capacity than iPhone (iPhone 7: 1,960mAh). It is compatible with the newest quick charging technology “Quick Charge 3.0” from Qualcomm. The external battery charger can charge up to 70% within one hour.  

 

Camera: Professional Grade Camera.

The reputed Sony backside illuminated CMOS sensors is used for both the front and rear cameras of the NuAns NEO [Reloaded]. 

The rear camera combines a bright lens of F2.0 with a field angle equivalent to 28 mm which is easy to handle and a 13 megapixels sensor. By using the distance measurement of the Phase Detection Autofocus and the contrast detection function to high-speed contrast detection autofocus, it is possible to achieve high-speed and accurate autofocus and enjoy photography comfortably at any time. 

We combined an 8 megapixels sensor and a super wide angle lens of 24 mm / F2.2 which is optimum for selfies with the front camera. There is no doubt that it will be useful not only for pictures of yourself with a beautiful background but also for the group selfies with friends and family. 

 

Durable: Water, Weather, Whatever.

You may want to use NuAns NEO [Reloaded] when it starts to rain while you are out, while you’re cooking in the kitchen so you can look at a recipe, take pictures when you play the kids in a sandbox, or even just taking pictures near water. To fit these various kind of life situations, NuAns NEO [Reloaded] has been developed to be Dust-Proof and Water-Resistant up to a IP54 standard.  

 

Software: Enhance Your Experience.

NuAns NEO [Reloaded] adopted the newest Android 7.1 (Nougat). Using the Google Play Store you can make the most of all the different Android Apps. The Android system dominates the large market share all over the world, opening up a multitude of possibilities.  

 

The Qualcomm newest chipset “Snapdragon 625” was adopted to the core. By combining this chipset with the inner battery of the NuAns NEO [Reloaded], it doubles the capacity of the iPhone and can run efficiently for long hours. Also, high-speed communication was achieved by the USB 3.0.
