I’m not 100% sure, but there’s a big chance that this Microsoft concept phone is made by HP in the designer’s vision. I’m only judging by the name of the renders he did, with a big HP written as their names. Anyways, this is he creation of Irvan aka Mr_vero and we’ll dissect it below.


This is a top heavy phone, with a chin without personality and a Home button squeezed below the screen. The core of the concept is the Smart All in One button at the back side, below the main camera. In spite of the fact the designer sees this as a 5 inch phone, I envisioned it as bigger, maybe something like the Nexus 6. It’s also modestly specced, with a 5 inch AMOLED HD screen and uses Windows 10 and an aluminum case.


The all in one button at the back can be used as power button, a lock screen button, fingerprint scanner and volume control button, which is not exactly unheard of.  The volume bit is done by scrolling the finger up and down to control the volume. The speaker slit at the back bottom is pretty nifty. I like the back of the phone more than the front to be honest. The 12 MP camera with Carl Zeiss sensor sounds pretty OK.
