Ubuntu Phone by spiceofdesign Ubuntu Phone by spiceofdesign
You have no idea how many versions this has gone through and how long it has taken to get to this point, but I have finally made an Ubuntu phone concept. Originally I came up with a design straight after the tablet, but I never finished it and there were things I wan't happy with and wanted to make more consistent.

The first screen is a simple lockscreen.

The second screen shows the home screen with the different lenses at the bottom. The selected lens is applications, with a search field at the top, and sidebar available for filtering options. Other lenses could include: system wide, web, contacts, messages, music, videos, photos, social, etc, with a modular plugin system to allow extensibility as well as an API for allowing third party apps to be searched (for example music app searches within Spotify).

The third screen shows a basic application view, with the titlebar/indicator area at the top, followed by a toolbar, then the main app window, with an onscreen keyboard at the bottom.

The icons are a variety from Humanity, Elementary and Gnome 3 symbolic icons.
The font is Ubuntu.
Time: I've lost track
Made in Inkscape 0.48

EDIT
- Blurred background in second screen to improve legibility.

It looks like an Android theme...it doesn't feel any different, and the lock screen is like Windows Phone

Great concept! While I'm not an Ubuntu user, I think I would get the phone version if it looked like this. Awesome job.

All of the icons are either Humanity, elementary or Gnome 3.x icons, all of which are freely and readily available.

Very good! Strangely, the Unity Lens fits well on a phone platform. Perhaps, more useful on phone than on desktop.

Hey i see some things that have no logic, example, the lockscreen, imagine that you unlock the cellphone just touching, you put it on your pocket like an hour, now, when you want to see you have doit 3 calls and sended 2 messages without touching the phone with your hands, need a way to move to unlock, i recomend slide from down to up o form right to left

if you have, music, contacs and browser icons down, why you need it on the apps screen? why not just 4 icons down? Ubuntu (Apps and all), Phone (Calls, messages, Contacs, etc..) Browser (PLEASE! NOT FIREFOX!) and Camera

Need a multitasking way, a mode to close them, and please! plase! rouned corners (if someone of canonical read this, just put an png image in any corner, this could not overload the graphics chip of the phone and will look really great) i recomen just 3px round (for the concept creator, try it with gimp, you will note that look better than squard corners and more rouned corners)

Sorry for my very bad english

The icons at the bottom are lenses for viewing of recent items and searching, etc. The apps are for more in depth interaction with content - eg you can only find music - tapping on it would just open the music app and start playing it.

The only thing I think I can agree with is that I need to do a multitasking view. But nowhere did I say it wouldn't exist.

The lock screen would require a password, so there would be false-unlocking - eg press lock button, touch screen then enter password - which would make it very difficult for it to happen accidentally.
