    Microsoft Surface M

    Hey everyone at Windows Central! Tonight I finally had the chance to work on a concept for the 'rumored' Surface Phone. Several sketches later and many hours I now have the first draft done. Not only am I working on multiple angled renders, but I have also been working on tweaks on the software side. Please sound off below :) All comments with my graciously taken account for!! I have also linked my behance account, this is where all updates and progress will be shared too! Don't forget to comment, like or even share!

    Regards,

    Cage Appleby

    Interesting, some quick observations.

    1. The windows logo on the front is a tad off centre
    2. No search + back key?
    3. also the rear camera placement is really awkwardly placed and will inevitably get covered by your fingers when trying to take pictures or when recording.

    Thanks for the recommendations! Ill see what I come up with. I'm working on the search and back keys, I'm been messing with backlight. Ill reposition the camera module, and add the back speaker :)

    First render of the left side is finished! I redesigned the grill as it did not make sense having it on the side as It was placed where your hand would cover it.

    Niiice, in terms of the single / dual sim tray and msd card tray, what are current thoughts in regards to placement?

    That side angle, though. That's pure love. It's really well done.

    Just wondering what material is that on the windows button. Is it really able to be capacitive? Cause it doesn't look like. Looks exactly the same as the one at the back of the device, which is just for decoration.

    Hey TechFreak1! Sorry for the very late response. I have been caught up on other projects so this one has been in the backburner for a while. I do plan on continuing this project however and I am currently sketching some ideas. In regards to the msd slot I was thinking of following suite with the Surface Pro line and including its placement beneath the kickstand - perhaps even the sim tray also. :)

    Cheers Peixe2! I was kind of leaning towards some sort of capacitive glass. I could consider rendering the surface book touchpad material also.

    Camera button should be there and also speaker should be placed below i prefer instead of rear back.

    Phone should be waterproof, dust proof etc..
