Breaking the stereotype of pill-shaped and rectangular smartphones, Runcible is the missing link between the smartphones and wearables, which overlaps the two categories in between. First thing first, Runcible is a round smartphone and unlike many other flagships, it does fit in your palm. When it comes to the user-experience, it is also different than what smartphones are doing for you as of now. While Runcible connects to the Bluetooth, LTE and WiFi when you want it to, it also lets you focus on other things for instance, your dinner or what your spouse is saying because it doesn’t choose to beep or buzz “selectively” when she is about to say something important.
It sorts your digital life in lots of ways and takes pride in being the first-of-its-kind device designed specifically for what the makers are calling the “post-smartphone age.”
The Runcible is in the prototype phase and it took them one year to develop it. It flaunts in peer-to-peer contextual IoT / WoT connectivity and you don’t need to download any software for this. The camera can also click pics and shoot videos. It rolls in an integrated physical sensor to activate sound and light control. This round smartphone will be launched in an association with KDDI, however the team has emphasized over and again that Runcible will be sold completely unlocked by the time when it is ready to hit the market.
Apart from this, no other details are available. You need to register on the official website for the pre-orders.

P.S. In case you are wondering where you have heard the word, ‘runcible’, here it is.
“They dined on mince and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon”
Runcible is a nonsense word invented by the creator of limericks, Edward Lear.
