Using the Pen Tool draw a shape as I did. Also the color I used is: #303030. The shape will automatically create a new layer. Name it Phone Base.
Step

Create a new layer over the Phone base layer and name it noise. Fill it with White, than go to Filter – Noise – Add Noise. Use my settings than click ok.

Set the Noise layer to Multiply and Opacity to 15%.

Next, we need to mask the Noise layer to cover only the base. To do this, Ctrl + Click on the Phone Base layer to make a selection, but in the same time you must make sure that you don’t select it and have the noise layer selected, than click on the Add layer mask button. This will hide the part of the Noise you don’t want.

The base of the phone is finished. We will continue now with the sides of the Phone. Start with the left one. Using the Pen Tool draw a shape as I did. Again this will automatically create a layer. Name it Left side. Also use this color: #e6e6e6.
Step

Duplicate the Left Side layer and place it above the first one. For the Blending Options use these settings:
Step

What you need to do now is to Right + Click on the Left Side Copy layer and select Resterize Layer. Than simply erase a half of the shape starting from the bottom. Also you need to make sure that your brush is set to 0% Hardness to make a smooth transaction between the first shape and this one.
Step

The next step is to duplicate those 2 layers and name them as the others Right Side and Right Side copy. Also move them in the right side of the phone and transform them in place.
Step

Now I will make some details. Zoom on the top of the phone. Using the Pen Tool, draw a small shape like I did and use this color: #5a6584. Also name it Left Light.
Step

Double click on the Left Light layer and this will bring the Blending options up. Use my settings:
Step

Now duplicate this layer and move it lower than the first one. It should be named Left Light copy. Also you need to change the Blending Options. Use my settings again:
Step

Next duplicate these 2 layers and name them Right Light and Right Light copy as they should be called. Than move them to they’re side and also transform them as they should be using the Transform Tool. Also you can make a folder and call it Lights and move these 4 layers in there to keep thinks organized.
Step
17

Make a new Folder and move it lower than the Lights folder. Name it Side Lines. In the next image you will see how I have arranged my layers.
Step

Create a new blank layer. Using the Pen Tool make a line like I did. Also before you make the line you need to make sure that you have the Path button selected. Make sure that the foreground is set to white and the brush to 100% Hardness and 1px Diameter. Now make sure you have the Pen Tool selected. Right click anywhere on the screen and select Stroke Path. A screen will poop up, don’t select the Simulate Pen Pressure and click ok. In the end delete the path and set the strip line to 30% Opacity.
Step

Make a new layer and name it shadow. Ctrl + Click the Left Side layer to make a selection. Fill the layer you just created with black and move it 5px right.

Have the shadow layer selected and go to Filter – Blur Gaussian Blur and use a 4.6 radius.
Step

Now you need to make a selection of the base of the phone but still have the shadow layer selected. Than invert the selection by clicking Ctrl + Shift + I than simply erase some of the shadow by clicking backspace.
Step

Make a new layer. Using the Gradient Tool you need to fill this selection. Before you start filling you need to have the foreground White and the Gradient Option set to Linear Gradient and Foreground to Transparent. Than fill the selection as I did and set the Opacity to 30%.
Step

Now simply duplicate these 3 layers and move them to the right side and also transform them by holding Shift and Alt keys to make a perfect transformation. It should look like this:
Step

Make a new folder and name it Buttons. This will stand for the lower button set. Make a shape as I did using the Rounded Rectangle Tool. It does not matter the color you use, as we will hide it.
