Yet Another Galaxy Note 4 Design Pops Up…

I’m running out of words and titles to describe and analyze the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 concepts we receive. Seeing how we’re a month and a bit away from its launch event, I’d like to start seeing some Note 5 renders, if possible… Till that happens we’ve got your run of the mill Note 4 below:

Yet Another Galaxy Note 4 Design Pops Up...

So, we’re dealing with a 5.8 inch phablet with a Quad HD resolution and a 4000 mAh battery. That’s dangerously close to a tablet battery, so that’s admirable. At the back there’s a 16 megapixel camera with ISOCELL technology and just as rumored, there’s a Retina Scanner on this model, as well as a Snapdragon 805 processor, or the Exynos 5433 alternative. OIS is also supported and a brand new minimalistic and flat UI is layered on top of Android L, I guess.

The form factor is pretty basic: rectangular with rounded top and bottom part. I also expect 3 GB of RAM here, as well as 16 or 32 GB of storage, a microSD card slot, NFC and LTE. The front camera has got to be a good selfie taker, so maybe it’s been bumped up to 3 MP or 5 MP. The proportions of the phone are off, especially with the bottom part so close to the screen and without a Home button, Samsung’s “trademark”…

Nokia N Arc Handset Is the Nokia N9 Successor Everyone Wants

A Nokia N9 successor, a so called Nokia N10 has been in the cards for many years now, with a ton of speculation and concepts around it. Today we go back to that idea, courtesy of a concept that Deviantart user Timblaer created. The device is called Nokia N Arc:

Nokia N Arc Handset Is the Nokia N9 Successor Everyone Wants

In case you’re wondering, no, it’s not Nokia Narc, but N Arc. The designer claims he really likes the N9 model and the MeeGo Harmattan 1.2 OS, so he created a successor for it. This is MeeGo Harmattan 1.3, with all the swiping gestures you need. There’s enhanced security, a swipe-based UI and many more apps compared to the first release. The N Arc also features a 21 megapixel camera with 4K video capture, something that not even Pureview phones have.

We also get Zeiss lenses and the ability to shoot full HD slow motion videos at a crazy 480 FPS. Finally, the Nokia N Arc features a small bezel 4.95 inch Full HD display, with ClearBlack technology. The design is pretty similar to the N9′s only even more minimalistic and discrete.

iPad Mini 3 Gets Beautiful 3D Design Courtesy of Martin Hajek

This is not meant as critique, but the iPad Mini 3 has got to be the least hyped and least expected product that Apple will deliver over the following year or so. We already get the best of the best on the iPad Mini Retina, so what more could we want? Well, a few design tweaks according to designer Martin Hajek.

He implemented his own vision of the device in this series of renders shown here. This iPad Mini 3 features design elements borrowed from the iPhone 6, apparently. We get even more rounded edges, the bezels are slimmer and the pill shaped buttons are better highlighted. There’s no trace of lock/mute button and the On/Off button has also been moved. The speaker grilles are now facing forward, not slightly inclined and same goes for the buttons.

I would call this a more pragmatic design approach, if I were to look for a direction here. The iPhone 6 design language keeps adding curves, while other device makers are heading in more rectangular directions. Just look at the Xperias and the Nokia Lumia 930, in order to get an idea of what I’m talking about. It’s interesting that Apple manages to make rounded devices without also making them slippery, which is kind of hard…

By the way, the iPad Mini 3 also brings a Touch ID fingerprint reader and the Apple A8 CPU.

HTC Droid DNA 2 and HTC One Wear S Smartwatch Rendered by Hasan Kaymak

I’m pretty sure you know Hasan Kaymak and his HTC concepts, that have been often published on our website. Well, today we have two fresh items made by the same designer: HTC Droid DNA 2 and HTC One Wear S. The first is a smartphone and the second a fresh smartwatch.

HTC Droid DNA 2 and HTC One Wear S Smartwatch Rendered by Hasan Kaymak

Hasan Kaymak has imagined various iterations of the HTC One Wear S, including a squared model and a round one. The HTC Droid DNA 2 is only teased in the picture above and it seems to be shown in a sort of copper/gold version. It’s an elongated smartphone with BoomSound speakers discretely integrated into the top and bottom. This model doesn’t quite stand out from the crowd and the first version of the HTC One War S has straight edges and a front camera.

Its belt is pretty rubbery and we also get sort of a BoomSound thing at the front and back. The second image shows a more detailed view of the device, this time with tiny little holes for the speaker, a metallic body and a big side button. Voice command is also shown on the screen, as part of the Android Wear experience. The last version of the HTC One Wear S has got to be my favourite, combining some of the Moto 360 vibe with the side rotating buttons typical to classic watches.

The bracelet is also segmented now, just like the body of a crayfish.

Nvidia Shield Tablet is a Perfect Gaming Device, Here’s a Render!

The first Nvidia Shield console was received with mixed feelings by the gaming community, but a gaming-focused tablet with the Shield branding may just fix that. This device, also known as the Nvidia Shield 2 has just leaked and it’s shown below.

Nvidia Shield Tablet is a Perfect Gaming Device, Heres a Render!

@evleaks is the author of the leak and the newcomer is said to come in September with a price tag of around 400 euros. The product will feature a Full HD 8 inch display, obviously the Nvidia Tegra K1 CPU and its famous Kepler GPU with 192 cores. There will be 2 GB of RAM inside, 32 GB of storage, 4G LTE support and a 5 megapixel back camera. This model will also offer a micro SD card slot, a micro HDMI port and a micro USB 2.0 port.

It will run Android KitKat, probably in a customized version with the Tegra Zone at the forefront. Judging by the image shown here, we’re about to get some pretty big and impressive speakers as well and I sure hope the battery can keep with the hardcore gaming that will be done on this slate.

Nokia Lumia 830 Portrayed in Fresh Design, Courtesy of Jonas Daehnert

It’s a great achievement to look up “Phone Designer” on Google and either see the father of the cellphone or the Facebook account of Jonas Daehnert. He is one of those designers who posts nifty pieces of work about 2 or 3 times a month, but makes them all count. Such an example is the Nokia Lumia 830 shown below, a render created following the Asian leaks of the real phone.

We’ve got a Lumia 930 out right now, so obviously we should get its cheaper and more youthful version, the Lumia 830 soon. The designer expects this new Lumia model to be one of the slimmest devices ever launched by Nokia. By their standards this means a waistline of around 8 mm, or up to 8.5 mm. This model is the successor of the Lumia 820, that was pretty good midrange phone and also pretty affordable.

The handset comes with a Nokia by Microsoft branding and a Pureview 13 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a singular LED flash. The back case seems to be made of polycarbonate, while the sides seem to be made of metal, a choice also applied to the Lumia 930, that was still a bit bulky. I expect the diagonal to be smaller than the one of the Lumia 930, maybe around 4.5 or 4.7 inches.

There’s a pretty large speaker at the lower back and I expect a solid set of Dolby acoustics to be included. Also, just like the Lumia 930, this model has the SIM (nano probably) tray placed at the top and easy to open with fingernails.

HTC Android Wear Rendered for @Evleaks, Looks Solid

Do you know what the easiest way is to leak a product? One person sees it in confidence, maybe in prototype phase and then he uses what he saw to help designers create a render that shows the leaked device. This is exactly what I think happened with @evleaks and the HTC smartwatch below.

HTC Android Wear Rendered for @Evleaks, Looks Solid

It has been created by the famous Jonas Daehnert and Ferry Passchier, both credited below. Dubbed simply HTC Android Wear, this model has some pretty big bezels for my taste and it’s also more elegant than the other Android Wear devices. It relies on a metallic belt and metallic body, with a highlighted display that really stands out from their body. The interface is tile-based, a bit like BlinkFeed in a smaller version.

HTC Android Wear looks a like a watch that would have been impressive back in 2011, but now standards have changed. We’ve seen a ton of iWatch concepts, the beautiful and real Moto 360, so we know smartwatch designs can impress and be stylish. This HTC Watch concept is a good start, but it needs to get rid of those big bezels…

There’s basically not one single day about a leak related to the iPhone 6, or lately to its components. Apparently, this model will have a 1810 mAh battery, but moving forward, the handset has been freshly rendered by Tomas Moyano and Nicolas Aichino and it’s shown below.

iPhone 6 Concept is Inspired by Various Leaks

You know the drill: we’ll get two iPhone 6 models, one a 4.7 incher and the other a 5.5 incher, with many design elements in common. The handsets are said to use durable sapphire displays with slimmer bezels and thinner chassis. 128 GB of storage should also be on board and Touch ID in an improved version as well. The iPhone 6 is said, in the case of this concept to measure 6.5 mm in thickness and weigh just 100 grams.

It comes with an Apple A8 20 nm processor and the M8 coprocessor, providing more information, like temperature, humidity and atmospheric conditions. The 4.7 inch screen remains a Retina one and it offers a 416 ppi density. At the back of the smartphone there’s a 13 megapixel camera with F/2.2 aperture and 1080p slow motion recording, as well as OIS and True Tone single LED flash.

iOS 8 is included as well and overall the design is just as expected, with the On/Off button on the side and all.

Old School Goes New School: Ericsson T28 and Nokia 3310 are Back From the Dead

The folks of Curved/labs have come back with some incredibly realistic designs, as shown in the images below. They brought back two of the phones that rocked the early 2000s and late 1990s, the Ericsson T28 and Nokia 3310, two landmark phones in the history of handsets.

Old School Goes New School: Ericsson T28 and Nokia 3310 are Back From the Dead

Both models sold millions of units and they evoke nostalgia in many people. Before there was Windows Phone and Android, before 99% of all phones were rectangles, there was originality and beauty. Curved/Labs rewrite history and shows us a smart Ericsson T28 with Android on board and a Nokia 3310 with Windows Phone, a huge display and a 41 megapixel Pureview camera. The T28 replaces the keyboard with a sloped screen and it shows apps and widgets on its monochrome screen.

Old School Goes New School: Ericsson T28 and Nokia 3310 are Back From the Dead

The Ericsson keeps its bulky antenna and big earpiece and it brings an edge to edge display with virtual Android buttons, plus the flip area that closes up on top of the lower screen area. The new Nokia 3310 is very bulky and curved, but it looks like a supercar from the profile. Its cool physical buttons at the bottom are kept and the screens looks very hot, in a color version.

Everything is curved here: the sides of the phone, the display, the profile and I imagine there’s a huge battery inside. This handset also does 4G LTE connectivity, so it has modern specs. Brilliant blast from the past!

HTC M9 Concept Imagined by Ross White

HTC M9 Concept Imagined by Ross WhiteHTC M9 Concept Imagined by Ross WhiteHTC M9 Concept Imagined by Ross WhiteHTC M9 Concept Imagined by Ross WhiteHTC M9 Concept Imagined by Ross White (19 votes, average: 4.11 out of 5)

It’s a bit early to start thinking about the HTC One M9, but some designers are and their imagination is turned into almost reality through concepts. This new device is designed by Ross White, it’s shown below and the idea here is to make the smartphone more compact.

HTC M9 Concept Imagined by Ross White

It comes with minimal bezels, a 5 inch screen and an overall body size smaller than the one of the M8 Mini. The front facing speakers are split, allowing the device to integrate a central front facing camera and there’s a HTC logo on the bottom panel. This handset has a 1 mm thick bezel, quad front facing speakers and it’s less long and less wide than its predecessor by 16 and 5 mm respectively.

The fact that it has the same width as the HTC One Mini 2 is all the more impressive. Frankly speaking, the HTC One M8 speakers are already perfect, so implementing quad speakers is a bit overkill. Why make the best even better? I can’t see any other company coming up with a better speaker system in the near future. What do you think of the HTC M9?

[Thanks Ross White]
