Created by Jonas Daehnert, the Leather Phone concept is actually a very nice idea. It’s finally a flexible phone with Windows Phone and one that changes the norm and materials used for such device projects.

This is a Leather phone literally, that involves a flexible piece of hardware, plus leather and fabric on top of it. It actually uses seams and sewed parts, unlike Samsung’s imitation of such feats on the Galaxy Note 3 back. The Windows Phone buttons seem to be made of metal and look pretty badass at the bottom of the device. Seen from the top this device looks like a Windows Phone handset inside a special leather case.

The thing is that said case is actually the flexible smartphone’s case and it easily folds as you bend it. The designer has promised more pictures soon and claims this is an extremely durable device. Usually it’s plastic OLED nowadays that makes such things possible. What will the future bring?

BlackBerry Strong is an Alternative to the Passport Model

Deviantart member Timblaer has done it again, creating a new BlackBerry concept called BlackBery Strong. This model is supposed to be a slider, which is a much smarter approach than the one BlackBerry supposedly took with the Passport model, that has been leaked on the web.

BlackBerry Strong is an Alternative to the Passport Model

BlackBerry Strong is a QWERTY slider smartphone with a preinstalled BlackBerry Office and enhanced security. BlackBerry OS 10.3 is installed here, as a more powerful version of the previous BB OS platforms, with a new UI and new features. The keyboard shown here lets the user improve his typing speed and it’s supposed to be the best QWERTY keyboard ever made. This BlackBerry concept looks hot even with the slider part pulled.

I can see there’s a pretty good camera at the back and from what I know BlackBerry now lets Android apps run on its devices, so this may be one of them. The screen complements the QWERTY keyboard with a Search button, camera button, phone call feature and probably a numeric pad, supporting the QWERTY.

Phone Designer Creates Nokia Lumia 330, the Nokia X With Windows Phone

As you know, in the same period that Microsoft fired 12.000 people taken over from Nokia, they also killed the Nokia X devices and all Android projects. That’s why designer Jonas Daehnert tried to imagine how a Nokia X would look with Windows Phone on board.

Phone Designer Creates Nokia Lumia 330, the Nokia X With Windows Phone

This model, the Nokia Lumia 330 concept is a combo of Asha, low end Lumia and Nokia X, as you can see. The price tag is supposed to be under $40 and this model measures 9.6 mm in thickness and it offers a 500 x 240 pixel resolution. It has a front camera, a replaceable battery, expandable storage and what seems to be a pretty crisp screen. I’m guessing the diagonal is around 4 inches and we get 512 MB of RAM or 1 GB inside.

The case is made of plastic and we seem to be getting dual SIM slots, on screen Windows Phone buttons and a microUSB port and audio jack at the bottom. The back speaker is huge, so I expect a lot of decibels from this lower end smartphone. Or maybe I’m wrong and that’s not a speaker at all, but rather a grippy area, that lets you remove the case more easily. I see some holes at the bottom, so the speaker could be there in the end.

Sony Xperia Z3 Rounds Things Up a Bit, According to Leak

Since there’s no interesting concept to check out today, I guess we can take a look at the Sony Xperia Z3, that has been leaked again, this time via @evleaks. He shows us the profile of the device, that features an interesting change from Sony.

Sony Xperia Z3 Rounds Things Up a Bit, According to Leak

If you read a review of the Sony Xperia Z, Xperia Z1 or Xperia Z2 you’ll see people complaining about the angular design and the way the sharp and straight edges “cut” into the user’s palm during long calls. Interestingly, Nokia ignored that and made their latest flagship, the Lumia 930 both angular and thick, so basically it’s even more uncomfortable to hold. Meanwhile, Sony seems to have switched places with Nokia, borrowing the rounded edges of their Lumia devices for the Xperia Z3.

Sony Xperia Z3 Rounds Things Up a Bit, According to Leak

What we see here is an Xperia model that from the front and back looks pretty much the same as its predecessors, but on the sides things are more rounded and comfy. The trademark metallic On/Off button is there and we’ve got the typical camera button in the mix as well. I can’t tell if the material use for the frame is metal or some sort of polished plastic. This model looks quite long and I expect it to go past the 5.2 inch mark with the diagonal.

What do you think of Sony’s new direction?

Microsoft Smartwatch Features Cortana and HERE Maps on a Circular Body

Microsoft may have fired about 18k people, but they’re moving into a new era and if they want to keep up with the times, they need to launch innovative devices, such as the smartwatch below. This Microsoft watch concept has been envisioned by Nadir Aslam:

Microsoft Smartwatch Features Cortana and HERE Maps on a Circular Body

The most interesting aspect about the concept is the platform on board, dubbed Windows for wearables. It integrates Cortana in a very discrete form and adapts the likes of HERE Maps to the small and round screen experience. The watchface shows the date, time, weather and most important notification, with Cortana at the core of the experience. You can customize the Windows Phone watch with a personal background or even use the Lumia Glance feature.

Vocal commands are supported, notifications are shown on the full screen, that can fit about 3 or 4 lines of text on it. I have figured out what the main idea here is: basically you have an UI the size of the biggest tile in Windows Phone and you swipe around it to interact with other features/tiles. Xbox Music and Xbox Video can easily fit on such a small screen and the People hub looks great on it too.

I can’t say I like this more than Android Wear, but it’s certainly a solid rival.

Nexus 6 Snapdragon 805 Concept Gets Rendered

Sent to us by Prateek Suri, the following Nexus 6 concept fits the lines of the device that we expect as the next Nexus smartphone. We also get a realistic list of specs for it, that obviously includes Android L and the powerful Snapdragon 805 processor.

Nexus 6 Snapdragon 805 Concept Gets Rendered

This Nexus 6 concept has 3 GB of RAM, a 5.5 inch QHD IPS display and a 13 megapixel camera with OIS and 4K video capture. The body is all metal and the handset is very compact and nicely rendered. It has the typical rounded upper and lower part, standard for a Nexus, as well as a discrete camera, although the Nexus 5 had a huge cam. This model features a matte back, very slim bezels and those already classic Android L geometrical shaped Android buttons.

If you ask me, a QHD display is overkill for the Nexus 6, since it drained a ton of power on the LG G3, so they’d better leave it out. However, with Android L’s ability to use up 30% less power than KitKat, they may actually be able to implement a decent 2K panel. What do you think?

Sony Xperia JK is a New Flagship With 4 GB of RAM, Fingerprint Scanner and Front Speakers

If you ask me right now, what Sony needs on its Xperia is a brand new UI, maybe a flat one since that’s so trendy. In the meantime we can enjoy the new Xperia concept made by Janish Kolakkattil. It’s called Sony Xperia JK and it’s his fourth Xperia concept.

Sony Xperia JK is a New Flagship With 4 GB of RAM, Fingerprint Scanner and Front Speakers

This one is supposed to be a flagship device, that packs a fingerprint scanner, a new type of front side speaker and IP58 certification. The newcomer is shatter proof and has a scratch resistant glass, plus it comes with Triluminous display tech, X Reality as well and NFC. The Xperia JK is able to reach 150 dB in audio, which is kind of a lot since most phones nowadays can’t even get to 60 or 70 dB.

The specs of this Xperia render include Android 4.4.4, a Snapdragon 801 CPU, that for some reason it’s listed as an octa core and 4 GB of RAM. There’s also 32 GB of storage, 4G LTE, a microSD card slot and a 4.5 inch Full HD display. The main camera is a 20.7 megapixel unit, traditional for Sony already, packed together with an LED flash and 4K video capture. We’ve got a 5 MP front camera and a giant non removable 4000 mAh battery.

Notice the ultraslim bezels of the display, by the way…

Timblaer Imagines Android One Budget Phone With Android L

We’ve written about Timblaer’s Nokia N Arc concept handset here and now the designer is back with an affordable handset. Usually we see concepts of high end high price smartphones, but this time it’s different. The model shown below is an Android One unit, a budget phone.

Timblaer Imagines Android One Budget Phone With Android L

The designer calls it an Android L device and includes a back speaker, a main camera with two flashes (if I’m not mistaking those for something else), as well as a single capacitive button upfront. This model is described as “the perfect budget phone” and it comes with a slightly angular back design and a shell that makes me think of those affordable tablets for children.

Android One was supposed to bring the latest Android software to budget hardware and it’s based on Indian device makers and emerging markets for starters. This handset would do just fine as the first phone of a buyer, or that cheap and low end second phone. The design isn’t conventionally sexy, but it’s appealing in a functional way.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Uses Bamboo and Ceramic as Premium Materials (Video)

Vishal Bhanushali has imagined a new type of Galaxy Note 4 phablet, but he didn’t change only the specs and the design, but rather the materials used to make it. This version below relies on bamboo and ceramic, so it’s a premium material edition.

It also comes with a heart rate monitor and the rumored UV sensor. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 concept shown in the video below looks beautiful with that Bamboo back, a move that was recently adopted by OnePlus One, also coming with a wooden back area. The new Note features a camera area that reminds me of the Lumia 930, with that discrete grey ring around the lens. It’s a squared device with slightly rounded back and a slim profile.

Its volume buttons are slim and I’m guessing the back panel can be removed, to access the battery and microSD card slot. This model seems to be “fatter” than usual, since it’s both shorter and wider, but the proportions are well thought. The front design makes me think of the LG Vu for some reason. I can’t help but wonder what the feel of the bamboo is on the user’s hand: is it slippery or does it have good grip?

Sony Xperia Z2 Ultra Rendered by Victor Cao

Many considered the Sony Xperia Z Ultra to be a too big phablet, but a device with a huge potential, thanks to its ultraslim design. All the successor, the Xperia Z2 Ultra needs is a smaller screen and more powerful hardware… and that’s exactly what Victor Cao offers in the render below.

Sony Xperia Z2 Ultra Rendered by Victor Cao

He envisions the Sony Xperia Z2 Ultra as a phablet with a smaller display and a Sony stylus specifically created in order to interact with drawing apps. This model looks very hot, particularly the back side, that seems to be made of metal. The Xperia Z2 Ultra packs a 5.9 inch Quad HD display with Triluminous technology, a Snapdragon 801 2.5 GHz processor, the Adreno 330 GPU and 3 GB of RAM.

We also get a 13 megapixel Exmor RS sensor on board, measuring 1/2.6 inches and a front 4 megapixel camera. The phablet integrates dual stereo speakers, digital noise cancelling and a 3500 mAh battery. It’s IP58 certified, integrates an aluminum back and measures 8.4 mm in thickness. The stylus is totally integrated into the handset and its top side is actually a button, that releases the stylus, a pretty smart idea actually.
