#49 Luxury Smartphone Design Concept by Joshua O'Connor
This is a simple and elegant design that mainly uses black leather, titanium, and gold (or gold anodized titanium) It is a blend of many smartphones I have come across, and I imagine it would be an android device.

Hi Ridwan,
Thanks to everyone who participated in our contest. Many of the submissions came in during the final days of he contest so in order to be fair to everyone we waited until the contest end to make a decision. You can see that the second place finisher was actually the 65 th submission so every design was given consideration in our process.

Hi Ridwan
Thank you for your interest in this contest. The dimensions refer to the maximum screen size versus the maximum size of the device overall. We don't want to stray too far from conventional mobile phone dimensions.
Thanks Ron

When we create the luxury smartphone, are you wanting us to make the interior stuff to? Like the battery compartment? Or, where screws go?

Hi Simon
If whatever you are using can export in wire format that would be best but the alias packages we use can accommodate many formats. If yours is supported then it won't be a problem. We are looking for concepts, the production design will of course undergo refinement.
