Designer Tolga Tuncer designed a notification/messaging and photo centric Facebook smartphone. It is blue. It has straight edges (like Facebook) and it has dedicated buttons for Spotify and Instagram. It is featured on Yanko Design and reminds me of some of the early Microsoft phone mock-ups. Here is what it looks like.
It has more character than Michal Bonikowski‘s classic smartphone design which surfaced a few days ago.

Ehh, I don’t know. It’s innovative but looks less than functional.
The word you are looking for is “intriguing” 🙂 it is a good looking design to work from
I don’t even think that would fit into your pocket
Have you seen the pocket on jeans these days 😉 actually you do bring up a good point. I think the design has some good elements to build from
If the design of any consumer electronics device is only about the styling of the housing than we are lost.
Well said Mary Lou
I like a phone that can pry up a manhole cover. Thumbs up on the wedge
Lol. Peter Mullen, sometimes a phone is not just a phone.
What I love most about this design is that if the functionality is not great, it can always be used as a door stopper…
Amen to that Roee 🙂
It is upside down. No?
The heavy (thicker part) needs to be at the bottom.
Humans hold these devices at the bottom for typing and calling.
I’d rather walk around wearing a giant chicken suit in Times Square in August than be seen using a blue facebook phone.
Looks pretty sweet. I’d rather see something original than, yet another, iPhone knock off. I wish facebook would release a phone. Personally, I think it’s weird that most of our mobile interactions go through horrible iPhone apps(pick android or iphone they both suck). Facebook’s social graph is better suited for mobile anyway. Contacts: I want to meet someone in real life and tap our phones together to be friends on facebook. Timeline: I want a stream of my communication and activity with someone. They called me, I wrote on their wall, they poked me, I sent them a message, we grabbed coffee, I waited for two days before calling them to seem cool, etc. But I’m a dreamer.
