product designing

in my current product design (CDT) A-Level in sixth form in England I have to re-design a phone, so i’ve come up with 5 different ideas (which i think are pretty good) and i’ve picked one to take on and develop into a model. However i think this is a kind of wasteful exercise because i’ve got 4 redundant ideas, so my question: what is the process i must go through to get big companies (Samsung etc.) to check out the phones? how do i make sure i dont get fucked over by said company? and is it even worth trying/profitable?

thanks in advance

I’d be careful with the language you use for starters.


You probably can’t get those companies to look at your design. It’s like publishers not accepting unsolicited materials. Doing to opens them up later to lawsuits from allegedly stolen ideas.
