I know I'm not a good designer, but I hope that someone with the skills might pick it up and create a real concept (with 3D renders) out of my idea ;)

Specs & Features [updated on the 12th of March, 2015]:

#SoC (System-on-a-Chip)
    Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 940 SoC
    16nm FinFET manufacturing process
    Octa-Core 64bit CPU (Quad A72 @ 2.2Ghz + Quad A53 @ 1.4GHz)
    i7 Co-Processor (Sensor Hub, Connectivity & Security)
    Tensilica HiFi 4 DSP
    ARM Mali T860 GPU
    4GB LPDDR4 memory + 64GB UFS 2.0 storage (PoP: SoC + LPDDR4 + UFS 2.0)
    Native 10 bit, HDR & 4K UHD support (Display, GPU, VPU)
            4K 10bit YUV Main10 HEVC & VP9 De- & Encoding (in hardware)
            4K 10bit HDR Video recording (RF) & QHD 10bit HDR Video recording (FF)
            10bit Wide Color-Gamut OLED Display

    5.2" JDI "Sheet" OLED Display (~76% screen-to-body ratio)
    1920*1080 resolution (~424ppi)
    WRGB subpixel matrix (higher max. brightness & lower power consumption)
    Native support for HDR content
    1.07 billion colors (10 bit)
    Corning Gorilla Glass 4 with ZeroGap
    Corning Anti-Reflective & Easy-to-clean coating
    Super-sensitive digitizer (glove mode & hover detection)
    4 proximity/ambient light sensors for gesture recognition + adaptive Display (local + gradual control over contrast, saturation & brightness)

    16MP RF Camera (IMX240: 4K [HDR] video, 1080p [HDR] Slow-motion video, MEMS-AF, All-focus, OIS + EIS, f/1.8, ZSL, triple-tone LED flash)
    8MP FF Camera (T4KA3: QHD [HDR] video, 1080p [HDR] Slow-motion video, AF, EIS, f/1.8, ZSL)
    Dual-ISP (up to 32MP)
    10bit YUV HEVC Main10 / VP9 Encoding (hardware), RAW [HDR] photo capture
    Always in "Stand-by"-mode for instant launch & capture
    Manual control over parameters in the Camera App's "Pro-Mode"
    Non-protuding (flat with the body to prevent scratches), RF-Camera protected by Sapphire glass
    4 microphones for enhanced noise reduction & voice control (1 @ front, 1 @ top, 1 @ bottom, 1 @ rear)

    Only 7.6mm thin (139 x 70 x 7.6mm)
    Matte soft-touch plastic shell (3 parts: top shell, backplate, bottom shell)
    Removable soft-touch plastic backplate (to access the removable battery, the 2 microSIM-card slots & the microSDXC card slot)
    Silver metal side-strips with chamfered edges (adding elegance & simplicity while also offering a secure grip)
    Dual Front Facing stereo speakers (for HQ / Hi-Fi audio from the SoC's DSP & Audio codec)
    2x Speaker grill-strips on the front (similar to the HTC Desire 626 & 826):
            Upper strip:    Left: IR/Proximity1 - Left/Center: Nothing      - Center: Nothing [because of the centered FF Camera & NFC]  - Center/Right: Speaker1 - Right: IR/Proximity2
            Lower strip:    Left: IR/Proximity3 - Left/Center: Microphone - Center: Nothing [because of centered USB C-type connector] - Center/Right: Speaker2 - Right: IR/Proximity4
    2x accent strips on the back to compliment the look on the front
    Triple-tone LED Flash (connecting the RF Camera with the top accent strip)
    Water- & Dust-resistant (water-proofing rubber band + wireless charging coil on the inside of the removable backplate)
    Rear Button below the camera (slightly recessed to make it easier to find, Fingerprint scanner + clickable hardware button for sleep/wake/power)

    New efficient architectures (CPU, GPU, etc)
    Support for the latest APIs (glNext aka Vulkan)
    LPDDR4 memory, HSA (OpenCL 2.1, Renderscript next, heterogeneous computing)
    UFS 2.0 storage (boot up in < 3 seconds)
    FinFET manufacturing process
    Integrated modem, Audio DSP, low power +1 co-processor, etc
    Removable dual 2100 mA/h batteries in parallel (for a total battery capacity of 4200 mA/h)
    Up to 15W (Multi-standard) wireless charging
    FastCharge (up to 40W via SuperMHL / USB C-type)
            Q: How can it charge so fast?
            A: Because it charges two batteries at the same time, instead of just a single battery!
    SuperMHL (1 lane, up to 40W, 4K 60fps, Deep Color)

    LTE Advanced with Carrier-Aggregation (Up + Down)
    Integrated world-mode modem & global RF-solution (Dual-SIM: 2x microSIM card slots)
    MU-MIMO Dual-band ac Wi-Fi
    Bluetooth 4.2 Smart
    NFC (On the back, behind the FF Camera)
    1x microUSB 2.0 (positioned left @ top side)
    1x USB C-type (centered @ bottom side)
    1x 3.5mm headset (positioned left @ bottom side)
    microSDXC card expansion (up to 2TB, SoC supports the latest SD 4.1 [UHS-II] standard)

    Q3/Q4 2015
    449€ / 449$
