How might a notchless phone inspired by the “made by google” brand values look like?

1 week late night project

CAD exploration

The starting point was to ideate around integrating the front-facing camera in a way that doesn’t result in a typical “notch” design.

I didn’t start with any specific design language in mind but was curious to explore first how an iPad pro influenced phone would look like and later on decided on exploring more rounder forms.

Symmetrical display

I started the design process with the thought of “display first”. How might a hardware design look like that keeps the display free from any interruptions. That thought is manifested in the top corners being pushed to the outside and therefore forming a smaller radius on the top than on the bottom.
