2018 is shaping out to be a year filled with a push towards minimalism in the cell phone space. Companies are realizing that some consumers are feeling overwhelmed and anxious by the constant sensory and information overload that modern smart phones provide. The Blloc smartphone is the latest iteration of these devices. Created to place productivity first and distractions second, the phone uses a monochrome UI to simplify your workspace and only display relevant apps when needed. The controls and interface is built around principles of 'less is more' so that you won't constantly get distracted every time you pick up your phone. The phone will debut later in the year and can be pre-ordered now from Blloc directly.
