It takes us back to the mid 80s, when the Commodore was such a big deal. The original Commodore Amiga 500 was used as an inspiration here and the original Workbench UI has also been included. The designer modeled everything in Blender 3D and Cycles. The resulting Amiga 500 phone comes with a quad core MC68000 processor, a 5.5 inch Full HD screen and a full SD card slot, not the microSD kind.

The OS is WorkbenchPhone 1.3 “Boing Ball Popsicle”, clearly a tribute to the older platform. Finally, we’ve got 8 bit 4 channels of stereo sound. Fans of the TV show Halt & Catch Fire will totally get all the references that this handset includes and will totally adore it. Also, if you lived in the 80s and messed around with a Commodore, this is your time travel machine.
