Nokia Ultraslim Concept Is All Pink and Lovely

October 5th, 2015

Although a Nokia Windows Phone or Windows 10 Mobile would be very controversial coming from Finnish Nokia not Microsoft, it may happen at some point in the future. We prep for that with the concept below, created by Deviantart user LoseerDedi.


It’s an ultraslim smartphone, colored in a shade of pink and sporting some pretty big bezels, especially if compared to a Sharp Aquos phone for example. I see the corners are gently angled, almost curved, in the tradition of the Nokia X7, although not exactly like that model. Not very much is revealed about this concept Nokia, but the designer did mention the software he used to create this work: Blender 3D, GIMP and Inkscape.

I imagine the generous top speaker is the core speaker of the phone and not just a huge earpiece. Just put a hardcore Pureview camera on this baby, give it a reasonable waistline and a big battery and you’ve got a hit.

iPhone 7 With iOS 10 Rendered by Hasan Kaymak, With Full Metal Case, No Plastic Lines (Video)

October 5th, 2015

It appears that one iPhone 7 concept wasn’t enough for Hasan Kaymak, so he created another model, this time with a full metal body and no plastic cutouts. One of the most interesting aspects of the concept is the fact that it also includes an iOS 10 concept.

iPhone 7 iOS 10 concept 1

The phone is rounded at the back, feeling a bit like a MacBook and comes with a Retina Display 3 screen and a 24 megapixel main camera. The case is made of aluminum and this time we’re getting a big battery, a 3000 mAh unit. Interestingly, there are 6 holes for the speakers and 3 metallic pins, probably serving for the data transfer and charging connector.

The Touch ID logo below the screen now serves as the Home button and fingerprint scanner. Hasan Kaymak sees this model as able to sync to other devices with no problem and he also included Actions and widgets here, for a more complex interaction with icons and apps. The video below also shows a big camera accessory, a special lens module, with large optical zoom.

Another novelty is the lack of a SIM card, a concept that has been speculated for a while now. What do you think of this concept, created by Hasan Kaymak and with the contribution of ConceptsiPhone.

Remember Nokia Morph? Where Is It Now?

October 4th, 2015

Back in 2008, our website was just starting up, but even then some amazing concepts were created. One example that quickly comes to mind is the classic Nokia Morph, that’s probably buried in the archives of Nokia or the Nokia Devices branch taken over by Microsoft.

Nokia Morph concept remember 1

The Morph is a concept phone that uses nanotechnology and relies on a flexible body with a transparent screen. You can reshape the device into a smartwatch and tablet, as shown in the images and that happened even before tablets and smartwatches were big, which is crazy! This project was developed in cooperation with Cambridge University and it was showcased at the MoMA Museum in New York.

And the bit that has me most nostalgic is the fact that the press release of the Nokia Morph mentions that the technologies shown here will be integrated into handheld devices within 7 years. Nanotechnology is still not here, we don’t have flexible tablets and not even flexible smartwatches… What went wrong?

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Could Feature Edge to Edge to Screen and “Smart Frame”

October 3rd, 2015

Have you heard about the Dell XPS 13? Well, that’s the notebook at the bottom of the article, with very narrow bezels. Apparently, that’s what Microsoft is going to use as inspiration for the Surface Pro 4 tablet.

Surface-Pro-4-concept edge to edge

The device is rumored to be unveiled on October 6th, together with the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL handsets. Now we learn that the Surface Pro 4 is going to have an edge to edge display, or better said a screen with very narrow bezels. The info apparently comes from an Arabic language website that has something do with Intel. The new Surface Pro is also rumored to have a 13 inch screen, but its edges will be almost invisible at the top and sides.

The bottom border will be kept for the sake of a Windows physical button and Microsoft is going to use a technology here called Smart Frame. This tech adds a virtual bezel to the Surface Pro 4 screen in tablet mode, making it from a 13 inch laptop into a 12 inch slate. That sounds strange and maybe we’d be happy with a regular bezel and a 12 inch screen, right?

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Rendered by SCAVids, With Specs Included (Video)

October 2nd, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (5 votes, average: 3.40 out of 5)

Samsung Galaxy S7 seems to be on everyone’s lips these days, thanks to quite a few leaks, but we’re more interested in a potential Galaxy S7 Edge version of it. Luckily we’ve got concepts to flare up our imagination, like the one below created by SCAVids.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge concept 1

It also includes a couple of predictable specs, like 4 GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 820 CPU and a 21 megapixel camera. An USB Type C port is at the bottom and curved screen edges can be seen here. The front camera is upgraded to 8 megapixels and the OS is Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It also seems that the Power button and volume buttons have been upgraded to a bigger size.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge concept 2

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge camera seems to not be protruding anymore and the screen is a Quad HD one. The design is more elongated now, or so it seems to me and the frame looks a tad bigger and more wrapped around the glass than before. Overall, I’d say it’s the light amount of innovation needed to spark a new Galaxy S Edge, but the real change would have to be in the software area, maybe related to those edges and their features.

I’d definitely like to see them both working at the same time. Nice looking front speakers by the way!

Entry Level Models Also Leak: Microsoft Lumia 550

October 2nd, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (5 votes, average: 3.00 out of 5)

It doesn’t take a higher end smartphone to get people technologically aroused. Sometimes an entry level model can be just as exciting. For example, the Microsoft Lumia 550 has just leaked again, courtesy of @evleaks. It’s expected to be launched in a few days and comes with a few interesting specs.


For example, it’s said to bring a front facing flash for its selfie camera and its polycarbonate body doesn’t look half bad. In spite of the small screen estate, its buttons are virtual, but we’re willing to forgive that. This model is said to be priced below $200, maybe even below $150 and it’s going to come with a Snapdragon 210 quad core CPU, 8 GB of storage and a HD AMOLED 4.7 inch screen.

I’m betting the polycarbonate shell is removable, just like on the other Lumia 5xx devices. A metal frame is offered around the screen, but it may end up being plastic in the end and maybe the inside frame is made of metal. What do you say of this newcomer?

Tone Slim Smartphone Amplifier Hits Kickstarter, Looks Sci-Fi

October 1st, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (4 votes, average: 3.75 out of 5)

Lacking a series of solid concept phones, we stop today at a smartphone audio amplifier dubbed Tone. This device has been spotted on Kickstarter and it aims at being one of the most stylish speakers for handsets.

Tone smartphone amplifier concept 1

There are 28 days left in this initiative and 6000 euros are required to make the device happen. The idea was to offer an accessory that doesn’t involve Bluetooth or battery power or any sort of wired or wireless contact. It weighs 75 grams, measures 3 mm in thickness and it’s highly portable. Tone is made of an aluminum composite panel, that has thin aluminum facets and a core made of polypropylene.

The designers claim that this material was made and engineered in Germany and they’re using it as a bit of a premiere for the project. Among its advantages are the slimness, flexibility and light weight. You can use the special material as a hinge, with multiple bends without breaking. Up to 80.000 bends have been measured without damage. The format of the amplifier feels a bit like an origami. Apparently, those who pledge 55 euros will get a personalized version of the accessory with their names on it.

The basic version is priced at 45 euros on Kickstarter.

Ubuntu Touch Vibrant Venice Concept Gives a New Twist to Mobile Ubuntu

October 1st, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (7 votes, average: 3.43 out of 5)

We have yet to see a mainstream Ubuntu phone, but then again when was Ubuntu ever mainstream? Well, today we came across the Ubuntu Touch Vibrant Venice concept, created by Pablo Marlasca from Spain. This is more of an UI concept rather than hardware concept.

Ubuntu Touch Vibrant Venice concept 1

The designer integrated here some ideas he hopes we’ll see in the future release of Ubuntu Touch, including a more personal approach to the phone, a smart and polished finish, increased readability and comfort for the eye. Global search is also included, allowing one to easily search through files, music, apps and contacts, as well as online sources.

Scope panels are also included, as well as Home Scope Sections, that divide the items into categories, which will be horizontally scrollable, in order to show more items. There’s also the bottom panel, that lets the user easily switch to any of the scopes, without extra scrolls. This doesn’t only feel like a future for Ubuntu Touch, but maybe also the direction in which iOS will some day go… Everything is clean, aired out and fonts are big, so that’s a good approach.

Great ideas!

LG V10 Gets a Fresh Leak From @Evleaks

September 30th, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (8 votes, average: 3.63 out of 5)

Although the LG V10 is far from a mystery, having received quite a few leaks, today @evleaks seemed to think that one more couldn’t hurt. Thus, he posted one more clear render of the device, highlighting its secondary screen and back texture.

LG V10 evleaks leak

This model had already reached TENAA and now it appears with a very hardcore back texture, that feels carbon fiber met with a pair of denim jeans. The physical back buttons are still here, as well as the secondary “ticker” display. This phablet will have a 5.7 inch Quad HD screen, a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, as well as a 5 megapixel front camera and a microSD card slot.

Basically, you get the specs of the LG G4 in a bigger package. This is by no means a premiere, since Samsung used a “ticker” display on the Continuum phone back in 2010. A 16 megapixel camera should be on board as well and the body seems to be made of plastic.

Ergo Watch Concept Looks a Bit Like an Earpiece… or a Submarine

September 30th, 2015

If you’re fed up with Apple concept phones, tablets and the works, you may enjoy the following Ergo Watch. Created by designer Jeabyun Yeon, this model goes with the idea that too many watches are rectangular or round nowadays and people may want something different.

Ergo watch concept 1

The Ergo Watch has a singular screen, but thanks to its elongated design, it’s able to split the display in 3 different units. Each shows another piece of info, like texts, weather and the battery level for example. The watch adopts an ellipsoid metal body and leaves quite generous bezels for the screen. The screen reminds me of the dashboard of a motorcycle, since it merges 3 circular hubs.

It can display one single thread of information or three separate feeds. Of course, this means it can’t run any of the current OSes, like Android Wear or Tizen and would require its own smartwatch platform. As far as I can see, the designer imagined it with a Pebble-like black and white approach, so it’s easy to work with such an UI and associated apps.
