The Taiwanese company Polytron Technologies obsessed with developing the world’s first smartphone clear of the same name, the prototype of which was shown in March 2013 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The manufacturer claims that the phone has a good chance by the end of the year to be on store shelves, although the number of gadgets and will be limited.

The secret lies in the transparency of the phone using a proprietary technology Switchable Glass (switchable glass) with the use of OLED-conductive liquid crystal molecules. When activated, the phone, these nano-components are scattered and are responsible for the reproduction of the image on the display. Thus a transparent phone displays a full touchscreen interface. When the phone is off or on blocking the molecules rearranged and joined together to form a transparent-opaque structure with a thin milky hue. Thanks to the technology of liquid crystal transparent phone from Polytron Technologies in its final version will have a double-sided touch display.

But the main innovation is not very clear structure of the phone, and the electrically conductive transparent binder components that are not visible to the eye. The creation of flexible and transparent electronic components company Polytron Technologies has sought to demonstrate to other manufacturers of smartphones that do not necessarily involve a huge number of wires, connections and circuits. After all, the Samsung and LG for several years working together to create a transparent smartphone, but before the official premiere and publicizing it never came. But Nokia has introduced the concept of a transparent phone a year ago.

And yet innovative gadget Switchable Glass becomes fully transparent. Basic chip slots with SIM-card and memory card SD (located one after the other), a microphone, and two AA batteries, can be seen at the bottom of the phone. At the top of the gadget are also quite noticeable camera and speaker. These inalienable part of any smartphone clear so far failed to do to anyone, and the Taiwanese manufacturer for the first time plans to simply close the upper and lower region of the visible parts of a strip of dark glass. The only manufacturer that promises to make more subtle – it’s the batteries that are not too aesthetically pleasing look in a transparent case.

Most of the technical characteristics of the new gadget are not voiced, and this suggests that the functionality of Polytron Technologies in comparison with traditional touch smart phones will be more modest. But the price for the gadget is too modest – about $ 900 – $ 1000, which is comparable to the price of a multifunctional iPhone 5. The company did not hide the fact that at the moment there is no transparent phone software, and presentation software without smartphone looks incomplete. But the developers have assured that the result will be released smartphone is transparent, and not just an accessory. And according to CEO Sam Yu Polytron Technologies, for the right to establish a new product its operating system can be overcome even such giants of the IT-industry, like Microsoft and Google. After all, double-sided touch display offers new opportunities not only for users but also for developers OS. According to most experts, such a transparent phone will take its place in the IT-market only if it is achieved high definition playback images on a transparent display, and if the smartphone will be equipped with modern operating systems.

PROBABLY the hype around the release of the first transparent smartphone may be, and a marketing character. The fact that the Taiwanese company Polytron Technologies is not engaged in production of mobile phones, and produces design, architecture and holographic glass, and also makes special glass used in parts of electronic devices. Transparent so that the presentation of the smartphone may just be advertising course Polytron Technologies, by which the Taiwanese want to impress a potential partner in the person of the eminent manufacturers of electronics. However, we must recognize the fact that, sooner or later, in the course of the evolution of mobile phones such an instance should appear on the IT-sphere and in the Polytron Technologies make this all possible, ahead even of the most famous manufacturers of electronics.
