Radical ADzero Bamboo smartphone coming to UK first

From a distance many modern smartphones are pretty indistinguishable from each other, and many owners purchase accessories such as various cases to protect and make their handset standout from the crowd. Today though we have news of the radical ADzero Bamboo smartphone that is coming to the UK first.

Earlier this year according to Phandroid a small British company called AD first revealed its plans for a handset called the ADzero Bamboo, which is an Android smartphone that has been constructed from bamboo. As you can see in the images below the casing is totally different from most smartphones being released to the market now. Originally the company showed off some prototypes but now these latest renders that can be seen below have been revealed.

These new renders are being touted by the company as to be the “design for manufacture”, and reveal some small differences from the physical prototypes seen a few months ago. The capacitive buttons have been tweaked slightly along with the combined camera ring and LED found on the back. Both the 3.5mm headphone jack and microUSB port have also been moved slightly with the USB port now found on the centre on the bottom of the handset.

So far the full specifications for the handset have not been revealed except that it will come running the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, and it will also include a customized ADOAS Android overlay.

The company is promising to keep this “coherent” and simple that follows the trend of the AD design philosophy, and the company is going to release the handset in the UK first with a late 2012 or early 2013 release time frame tipped. Do you like the look of the ADzero Bamboo smartphone?
