Google Galaxy Phone and HP Hunter Prototype Are Ideal as 2017 Android and Windows 10 Flagships

The same designer Mr. Vero who created some nifty Windows 10 concepts recently is back with one more, this time a HP machine, a prototype called HP Hunter. The device is pictured below and it’s joined by a Google Galaxy model, supposed to be some sort of Samsung Galaxy S Nexus spinoff.

The HP Hunter prototype phone has some pretty big antenna lines at the back, but also a very narrow set of bezels for the screen. It opts for a totally atypical Home button, perhaps also integrating the fingerprint scanner and that’s in spite of also having a virtual Home button. When shown in the user’s hand it feels like a fluid fit, a great piece of ergonomical design, but that doesn’t mean that Windows 10 Phones are doomed anyway…

Then comes the Google Galaxy, which is basically what a Galaxy Note 8 will look like, if it ever gets made. It’s got the roundness, but it’s also rather big. Seeing how it bears the Google logo it may feel a bit like a Pixel, or a Nexus or whatever, but we do like experiments here. While the HP phone was angular, this is a more rounded affair, both in corners and edges of the screen.

If it has a grippy metal frame, it’ll also provide a nice way to hold it, otherwise it’s a slippery bar of soap.
