Remember the Nokia initiative entitled “Design by Community” that involved the public’s selection of specs and design features for a future Nokia smartphone? Well, it came down to these three sketches last time we heard about it and the finalized result of the challenge is the Nokia U device, pictured below.

This Nokia concept phone is the result of over 18,000 votes that chose a sketch of the phone in order for the handset maker’s design team to turn into a render. This is the render we’ve been waiting for, complete with the specs listed below:

Display: 4 inch, capacitive. 16:9
Size/shape: monoblock, 60 x 110 x 6-10mm
OS: Open source OS with unlimited multitasking, based on touch input
Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, USB 3.0, HDMI
Camera: 8 megapixel, 4X optical zoom, dual LED and Xenon Flash, HD video capture
Materials: aluminium, soft touch finish
Others: multiple OS, surround sound speakers, Flash memory, kinetic energy power

More details concerning the project can be found on Nokia’s official site.
