Jonathan De Jesus is already a regular here, with quite a bunch of concept smartphones shown to us, under the Crescent brand. This time he unveils to us the Crescent Supernova, a splendid Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone with a 4.8 inch height and 4.6 inch Super AMOLED HD display. This one is a 1080p screen, so it’s a big evolution even compared to the likes of the Galaxy Nexus.

The Crescent Supernova comes with an 18 megapixel camera, a 1GHz Snapdragon S3 processor (dual core) and 600 MB of memory. There’s also 100GB of internal storage, the latest in Bluetooth technology and everything works wirelessly, including charging, headphones and transfer/syncing (done via WiFi). There’s an extra LCD display at the back, as shown below and this area is used to display battery power, switch camera view when taking pics and also show some status details of the handset’s functioning.

This seems to be a very thin and rectangular device, an unusual form factor for today’s wide smartphones. I see it as an evolved, elegant Ice Cream Sandwich device of the year 2012 and maybe something that Motorola, HTC or Samsung would make. For now the work belongs to Jonathan De Jesus, who did a wonderful job! The only thing I must mention is that I think the Power button is a bit too close to the inferior edge of the handset. Otherwise, the design is pefect! What do you think?
