Inspired by Holga's cheap toy cameras -- popular for creating "vignetting, blur, light leaks, and other 'qualities' that's unacceptable in the mainstream photography", Saikat Biswas has come up with this concept camera called the HOLGA D.: it keeps the same "qualities and simplicity of the original Holga camera and brings back the joy and delayed gratification associated with good old analog photography" but completely omits the digital screen at the back, so that "your photographs remain mysterious until you download the images" keeping the experience as close as possible to real film based cameras.

The biggest 'feature' of the Holga D is lack of features! It has absolute bare minimum feature set that you need for unobtrusive photography.
It comes with a Last-Generation full frame or 1.5x crop sensor. Last-Generation sensors are basically outdated sensor from the mainstream market, for example, when the minimum resolution available in the mainstream market is 24mega-pixel, 12mega-pixel sensors would be the Last-generation sensor. There would be many other 'enhancements', like not adding the micro-lenses to the sensor. Which would reduce cost and might increase the vignetting other inaccuracies. It might not be desirable for common purpose photography but these effects are very much desirable for the toy camera shooters.
From the article on BuzzFeed:
The Holga D digital camera prototype is a younger, sexier cousin to the much-loved plastic Holga camera known for its Tumblr-able vignetted, blurred, and light leak streaked photos. Stripped down to the bare essentials with manual focus, minimal controls, and no viewfinder this is some serious old school meets new school for camera geeks.
