[CONCEPT] Next Generation BlackBerry 10 Devices
Well, it has been a long while since I've done something like this. But this is my concept of how the next generation of BlackBerry 10 devices could look. Not just the rumoured Aristo, but a physical QWERTY version as well.
Full Touch model is loosely based on description from another thread about devices users have seen, plus what I would personally like to see if possible. Users have described a similar size to the S4, so this concept has exactly the same physical dimensions as S4. A bottom 'chin' similar to the Z10? and of course the new 16:9 aspect ratio going forward, be it 1280 x 720, or 1920 x 1080. The screen works out to 4.9" in this concept.
I took some creative liberty to add in what I would personally like to see in it.
- Dual front facing speakers (just think of how awesome PlayBook's speakers are)
- Power button at the side (for larger devices I find it easier to access if at the side, though really it isn't crucial since we can unlock the device by just swiping up)
- Since 16:9 is a wider ratio, I thought maybe I could fit in another row of icons on it by using a smaller grey translucent background like on the Q10.
The physical QWERTY version is really just me having a bit of fun. Dual speakers, 2mm wider than the Q10, but same height. Increased the screen size slightly as well to 3.3", as well as the physical keyboard slightly. With a physical keyboard device, too big a size means that it will be really hard to type with one hand, so I didn't push it too far.
Well, just having a bit of fun with Illustrator and Photoshop, hope you guys enjoyed it. Cheers.
