Here's a look at the Meizu MX3, one of the first Ubuntu phones. This is a prototype, hence the blank screen, but it gives an idea of what the phone will look like.

Gently curved edges
CNET's Brian Bennett said the design of the Meizu MX3 reminded him of the "classic iPhone 3G and perhaps a Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC Evo 4G LTE (complete with chrome trim around the edges)."
The Meizu MX3 has a smooth back molded from white plastic.
