Designer shares his vision of what a dediacted Facebook phone could look like

A talented designer has shared images of his vision of what a Facebook-dedicated phone would look like on Yanko Design's website. Tolga Tuncer envisions the phone to have blue plastic and aluminum construction, with a 'Like' button taking the place of the where the Home button usually resides. The concept is tall and thin, however, measuring in at about 6.9 by just under 2.2 inches.

There is also an Instagram hardware button that would presumable take users right to the photo app. The other side of the phone has a Spotify button sitting above the volume rockers. A notification light that doubles as a shortcut to Facebook messenger is also nearby.

As a phone, the concept won't be very practical, as it lacks a microphone on the front. Calls will need to be made with an attached headset, however, or with the screen facing out, away from a user's face.

On the rear is also an Instagram-barnded camera with a single LED flash.

Of course, there are no plans to bring this concept to production, as it's thus far simply one man's fancy. [via SlashGear]
