Peter Waters claims that he feels frustrated about the specs of the Nokia 808 PureView, so he took matters into his own hands and decided to create his own version of the dream cameraphone. The result is the duo shown below, Nokia Lumia 928 and 828. The latter is targeted to rival the LG Nexus 4 through a budget price, while the Lumia 928 wants to fight the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Both models feature the original PureView 41 megapixel camera and both come with large screen resolutions: 4.3 inches 720p for the smaller model and 4.8 inches 1080p for the bigger one. Nokia Lumia 828 is a budget model, at 200 quid to 400 and it packs HSPA+ connectivity, while the 300-600 quid Lumia 928 supports dual band 4G LTE. Designer Peter Waters also says that he wants Windows Phone 8 to be better and wants to change the appearance of the OS on Nokia devices.

The Nokia modified WP8 involves a personalized desktop and start menu, for a more comfortable experience. The idea here is to implement appealing skins and imagery on the platform to make it more appealing. There are new default transparent colors, reduced icon sizes and more colourful wallpapers. The empty space between icons may upset users, but it may be an interesting approach. No idea of the specs, but a quad core CPU wouldn’t hurt anyone…

    Pureview with paste in modified windows phone 8 screen… There won’t be any device with such buttons

    do you think lumia phones will actually be built with a 41 mp camera? I’m gonna be waiting for it!

  • viper

    the bulging camera is irritating. it is better the thickness of phone is slim. we dont need 41mp, about 14mp is enough.

  • Trev

    Interface is huge improvement over default Windows 8 – Ballmer & MS need to hire this guy. Super camera is too much – 8mp is fine. Keep it slim but make the 828 a W8 with physical keyboard.

  • First of all, i’d like to thank all of you for your fair comments, it really helps me know how to improve my designs.
    The main focus here was to create a concept operating system with customization suitable to compete against android. I personally own an android phone, and even though I love windows phone 8, whenever I see the beautiful aesthetics of a shiny new android phone, I just can’t get away from it.
    Some people say they like WP8 for its simplicity. My concept is only bringing Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 closer together. My aim is to make an OS that can be unified instead of only being available for certain devices. Android is at its best on tablets and phones, wheras Win8 is configured for tablets and other PCs. For now, I like to think of my OS as the next Windows 8 RT, just like android,it is configurable for phones and lightweight tablets.
    Obviously the real phone design if this concept OS became a reality would be different. I chose this phone however, because I thought the nokia 808 pureview deserved some justice. Five years went into the making of that brilliant camera, however Nokia delivered it in a terrible package. If you like, this is a re-design of the WP8 OS and a vision of how Nokia should have delivered their PureView phone.
    I still have a lot of work to do on this concept which I hope to feature on future flexible phones and transformers (such as the ASUS PadFone, which will never be configurable for windows 8 unless we can make this happen) But I do promise you, someday we will!
