Default HTC HD3 Concept

This is how HTC HD3 would have to look to be a perfect device for me.

Full size image

Some specifications don't exist yet, but hey, we're allowed to dream right?

In my graphic novel (which takes place 5 years from now) one of the characters uses this phone. It's just not called HTC HD3. I'm obsessed with details so I had to designed it before drawing it in his hand. Made entirely in Photoshop.

・3.58 x 2.31 x 0.23 inches (91 x 60 x 6 mm)

・4.2" Capacitive Touch Screen with True Touch Technology*

・WXGA (1280 × 720) Resolution with 1080p Support

・Hardware buttons: Volume, Sleep/Shut Down

・Dual Boot for Android and Windows Mobile 7 Professional

・HTC Sense 3

・Build-in Stereo Speakers on both sides of the screen


・3.5 mm stereo audio jack

・8 Mega Pixel camera (with Auto focus, Smile recognition and a Dual LED Flashlight)

・Standard Micro-USB (5-pin micro-USB 2.0)

・2GHz Snapdragon™ processor

・microSD™ memory card

・Rechargeable 2500 mAh Lithium-ion battery

・3G, GPRS, EDGE, Wi-Fi, Router, Bluetooth®

・G-Sensor, Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor

・Internal GPS antenna, Digital Compass

* True Touch is a fictional technology. A tiny 0,042" (1mm) wide tile would follow your finger creating a bump for a "True Touch" experience. It would be an alternative for people who can't live without a QWERTY keyboard (such as myself).

Looks like it's sharp enough for me to spread cheese onto my toast in the morning.

I was going for a very thin yet solid look (forgot to mention in the specs that the case is made out of metal). Guess your right - it looks sharp. Oh well, that just gives the device another function - kitchen knife.

Haha, nope. Still working on it, but it's nice you asked.

Not bad, I just don't like the screen going right to the edge at the bottom, it's also technically unrealistic, even moreso as it looks curved, at least for the timeframe an HD3 would likely be released...
Truetouch is fun, maybe one day with flexible OLEDs... but that would be in many years (5-10), while how it goes now an "HD3" would be due to be out next year

Wow, nice design.

But a 8mb camera on such a thin phone its impossible.
Anyway, you have quite some design talent!
