that would carry it might be similar to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus+ smartphone that can be seen in the photo to the left.

According to a recent article on Concept Phones
, the designer notes that Samsung Galaxy Nexus+ would pack a 4.5-inch HD touchscreen display and that it would be powered by a quad core application processor. On the back, the phone should sport an 8-megapixel photo snapper.
The software on this Google phone was imagined as being different as well. In addition to the Android 5 OS, the phone is said to include Google Voice+. It should be capable of providing users with capabilities similar to those available for iPhone users via Siri.
Other possible features inside this device would be editable Status Bar, and Dock (color, style, icons), along with a customizable Menu style.
