Nexus X Concept by TheTechnoToast Nexus X Concept by TheTechnoToast
My new premium Nexus smartphone concept, and my first to be rendered in 3D!

*Update:* Here's the real version of the skinned Android displayed above:…

The Nexus X is a smartphone made entirely from a single piece of matte stainless steel, with chamfered edges around the phone and power button.
It features the following:

A 3.2 GHz octo-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 2000 with 6GB of RAM
A 6.5 inch super amoled 4K display covered with unscratchable Sapphire Crystal
A 6000mAh battery which lasts 5 days on a single charge
Android 4.5 with 3 options: Stock Android, a skinned version (shown above) or rooted w/Cyanogenmod
A touch-sensitive volume slider on left side of device that lights up and vibrates device when touched
Smart touch technology that ensures unintended side touches get ignored
A transparent 5MP front facing "invis" camera and speaker, hidden behind display
A 30MP back facing 8K camera
Windows RT, Chrome OS and Ubuntu Ready (multi boot)
USB 3.0 charging port for faster transfers and charging times
All phones shipped with 4G LTE ready chips
And then the usual stuff (NFC, Bluetooth, etc.)


400 for 16GB (LTE enabled)
500 for 32GB (LTE enabled)
700 for 64GB (LTE enabled)
900 for 128GB (LTE enabled)

Hope you like this concept! :D

3DS Max rendered! Nice! Would you like to help me out on 3DS Max? Lol, I can't get any textures. All my models are just gray.
TheTechnoToast Jan 5, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Oh sure! What kind of help do you need? :D
Applyinh materials and colors that look realistic. For instance, creating a realistic looking aluminum. please help me, lol I can't figure it out XD.
TheTechnoToast Jan 7, 2014  Student Digital Artist
 Ah ok lol xD.

Well my aluminium texture was actually an accident - I was experimenting with a chrome texture. When I applied the chrome to something flat, it ended up looking like the concept :D
I followed this tutorial:…

Make sure not to use the default renderer - use Mental ray and some skylights to get a realistic looking scene. I can help you with that as well if you need :D
Another problem, when I render, I can't see the edges :(. It's just one large polygon. The shading does not look right.

Hrmmm... do you have a preview? It might be that the chamfered edges aren't big enough.
:D I'm getting far! Created lighting and cameras! Just need help with shadows. I keep asking you questions and figuring it out :P. Also, you do you create holes and stuff on a shape, without creating a new shape?
