Nokia Lumia Mini Phone May Actually be a Good Idea

One thing that the Lumia series lacks is a real Mini phone, basically a smaller device with overpowered specs, considering the size. One of the best Mini phones to date is the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, that was followed by an equally awesome Xperia Z3 Compact. Now we’re seeing this Nokia Lumia Mini here.

Nokia Lumia Mini Phone May Actually be a Good Idea

This is a 4.5 inch handset rendered by Deviantart user jonaskvale, a model with a rounded body and Windows Phone on board. This model seems to adopt a polycarbonate shell, with the styling of the Lumia 820, if you must have a comparison. It’s also much thinner, wider and flatter than that model, but I have to say I dislike the side button, that doesn’t feel flush with the surface of the Lumia Mini.

I imagine there’s a solid 8 MP camera at the back, a dual core or quad core CPU Inside and frankly speaking we could do without capacitive buttons. It’s interesting to note that ever since Windows Phone 8.1 came we’ve heard rumors the buttons were going away, but they haven’t…

Rose Gold iPhone 6S Rendered by Martin Hajek

Martin Hajek has rendered a few ultra realistic Apple concept devices over the years and now he’s already envisioning the iPhone 6S. The handset is shown in rose gold and keeps the general idea of the iPhone 6 design format.

Rose Gold iPhone 6S Rendered by Martin Hajek

Considering the rose gold hue of the Apple Watch, it’s to be expected that the new iPhone would feature this color. Rumors also say that even the Apple Watch interface may transition to the future iOS releases. I have to admit that the shine of the iPhone 6S rose gold sides stands out of the crowd, by those white lines at the back are awful now.

If you want specs, I guess an Apple A9 CPU would be in order, the screen is probably one with last year’s resolution, the same quantity of RAM and perhaps a camera upgrade, to 13 megapixels. Optical image stabilization should also make the cut to the regular iPhone 6S, not only the 6S Plus. Sapphire glass should also be applied to the screen, if possible.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Design Envisioned by Rishi Ramesh

It appears that Samsung Galaxy S7 designs are starting to pile up these days, since this is the second one we’ve seen this week. You can check out the previous one here and today’s is less futuristic than that one. It keeps the general lines of the S5 and S6 and adds hardcore specs.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Design Envisioned by Rishi Ramesh

Rishi Ramesh envisioned this smartphone as a powerhouse with an Exynos 16 core big.LITTLE processor, as well as a 4K AMOLED display, that even offers 3D. Inside we find a 4 GB of RAM and there’s a 20 megapixel camera at the back. The battery is a 3500 mAh unit and there’s also a more advanced fingerprint scanner, plus a retina scanner. I can’t exactly tell what materials are being used here, but I guess the frame is made of metal.

The format feels like a more wide Galaxy S6 and the UI doesn’t seem to change much. The biggest problem with the Galaxy S6 is that its successor won’t have too much to change… Maybe Samsung will find a way to still keep the glass parts of the case and implement a microSD card slot and removable battery. As far as the specs go, I feel it’s not yet time for a 4K display on a phone.

HTC One M10 Ace Envisioned With Shiny Chrome Body, Rendered by Hasan Kaymak (Video)

Hasan Kaymak has rendered a new HTC smartphone, this time also including a video message attached to the project. The newcomer is called HTC One M10 Ace and it’s shown in the images and video below.

HTC One M10 Ace Envisioned With Shiny Chrome Body, Rendered by Hasan Kaymak (Video)

This is a chromed smartphone, with a very shiny chassis and a slim profile. The device keeps the general form factor of the HTC One series, with a rounded back and all, plus it adopts a big camera lens and a line pattern at the back. The pattern also continues on the sides and partially at the front. The BoomSound speakers are now more discrete than on the HTC One M9 and volume buttons are elongated.

This model has the audio jack and microUSB port at the bottom, plus big front camera placed at the top right side of the device. The bezels are very narrow and this time I expect HTC to make the jump to Quad HD resolution and maybe a new kind of screen panel. Is chrome a viable solution for a modern smartphone? What do you think? Would this model be usable on a very sunny day, considering it’s so shiny?

Samsung Galaxy S7 Concept Already Envisioned, Eliminates Bezels, Goes Rectangular

Samsung Galaxy S6 is a piece of work, of that I’m sure, having played with one for a few days. The Galaxy S6 Edge is even better, revolutionary on the aesthetic level, rather than on the feature side of things. And now we can already dream of the Samsung Galaxy S7, thanks to the concept below.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Concept Already Envisioned, Eliminates Bezels, Goes Rectangular

The biggest problem a company has when making a comeback is what follows next. The Galaxy S5 sold in disappointing numbers, but the S6 is looking very hot and promising, so what wiggle room is there left to innovate? The camera is already very good, the design is premium, so nobody can complain about “plastic toy” anymore, so what more do the users need?

Samsung Galaxy S7 Concept Already Envisioned, Eliminates Bezels, Goes Rectangular

The source of the Galaxy S7 concept exaggerates a bit with specs, mentioning 6 GB of RAM, although 4 GB would already be overkill. Cyclone HMP technology will be used for the chipset, a true octa core 3.x GHz processor. The display is predicted to be a 4K one, since Quad HD screens have started to mature over the past 4 months or so, unlike the bad experiment that was the LG G3.

A Super AMOLED panel is most likely included and a jump to 20 MP is expected at the back camera.

LG G4 Design Rendered by Ivo Maric: Full Metal Body and Curves (Video)

We have seen our share of LG G4 concepts before and now Ivo Maric renders ne. This time we’re getting the best of two worlds: the curves of the LG G Flex 2 and all the goodies of modern flagships, including a full metal body. There’s a fingerprint scanner in the Power button and the whole thing measures 9.9 mm in thickness.

LG G4 Design Rendered by Ivo Maric: Full Metal Body and Curves (Video)

The LG G4 handset has a metal body, a 5.6 inch 1440 x 2560 pixel display and there’s also a Snapdragon 810 CPU inside. A good thing about this model is that it can learn from the mistakes of the G Flex 2, Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9, since it arrives later. The same can be said about the Sony Xperia Z4, by the way… Back to the LG G4, it has leather at the back, or maybe just plastic with leather-like texture.

The edges are all metal and the curve is pretty discrete here. The camera sticks out a bit and we’re expecting a jump to 20 megapixels. The physical buttons at the back are even more discrete and elegant than before and the whole device feels more mature than the LG G3. The G3 had an interesting plastic with metal elements combo for the case, going in its favour, so switching to leather may not be the right decision.

Xgamer Gaming Tablet Looks Almost Perfect

In a world where VR gaming is fast becoming a trend when it comes to mobile gaming, it’s very hard to create a tablet that takes gaming to a new level. Created by Beau Reid, the Xgamer tablet is very ergonomic and features a special set of handles.

Xgamer Gaming Tablet Looks Almost Perfect

This model uses “accelerated gaming”, as well as a curved screen that offers a cinematic experience. The display included here is a 10 inch Full HD screen with 180 degree viewing angle and a great sense of immersion. There’s a state of the art GPU inside and the curved shape of the chassis is naturally ergonomic for the user’s hands. The controls are placed at the back, in order to be more comfy.

The speakers are on the curved front side and I fancy this much more than the Nvidia Shield or Shield tablet, to be honest. My only hope is that the battery life is good and we get compatibility with both Steam and Play Store. I wonder what CPU is inside, a Qualcomm, maybe Exynos or Tegra X1?

Samsung Galaxy Round 2 SGH-930 Concept Puts the Curved Screen on the Bottom (Video)

Jermaine Smit is already back with a new Samsung concept phone, this time one that involves a curved display. Unlike the Galaxy S6 Edge, the curve isn’t on the sides, but rather at the bottom, as shown below.

Samsung Galaxy Round 2 SGH 930 Concept Puts the Curved Screen on the Bottom (Video)

The designer claims the specs are the same with the ones of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, which makes this rather a design choice than a hardware choice for consumers. The previous Galaxy Round was curved in a strange way, on a vertical line. Now the screen extends all the way to the bottom and more. The back side feels more like the Galaxy Note 4 combined with the Galaxy S6 in this case.

This looks like a very bulky and solid phone, plus its bezels seem to be minimal here. Obviously the lower edge can be used for notifications and quick contacts, like on the Galaxy S6 Edge, I guess. The placement of that curved part would have to move the speaker, audio jack and microUSB elsewhere, maybe at the top, maybe on the sides, which would basically increase the phone’s thickness and make connectivity strange.

I have to admit the phone looks mighty fine, especially in the first shot above. Specs are available in the video below, including a 20 megapixel camera.

Neptune Suite Concept Features a Watch That Acts as the Core Hub for a Tablet and Phone

The ASUS PadFone concept was just the start of modularity, that’s taken to a new level, courtesy of the Neptune Suite. This creation comes from Pearl Studios and it’s a project that’s getting financing as we’re writing this, so it may be for sale soon. The product is priced at $599 and it revolves around a watch.

Neptune Suite Concept Features a Watch That Acts as the Core Hub for a Tablet and Phone

The Neptune Watch is a very powerful device, that powers a tablet, phone, a keyboard for the tablet and even involves a TV dongle. None of these devices can work without the watch and they don’t even have to be inserted into each other like the PadFone. The Neptune Hub is the actual smartwatch, with a quad core CPU inside, support for 3G and LTE and WiFi, plus GPS and Bluetooth.

Neptune Suite Concept Features a Watch That Acts as the Core Hub for a Tablet and Phone

It’s a curved watch, that’s on the bulky side and has a pretty big screen. Think Samsung Gear S, only flashier and prettier. Then comes the phone, called a Pocket Screen in this case and it’s basically a 5 inch smartphone that’s empty inside and can’t work without the watch. Then there’s a 10.1 inch tablet with a small bezel touchscreen and a front facing camera, able to be paired with a keyboard dock.

To top it all, the Neptune Headset is a wireless pair of headphones, that also works as a pendant by snapping together magnetically the buds and even works as a charger cord. Finally, there’s an HDMI dongle called Neptune Dongle, that brings all the action to the big screen TV. Neptune even prepared a cool UI for these devices, as shown in the source link below. Would you spend $600 on these?

LG G4 New Render Makes the Device Feel More Like a Giant Phablet Than a Phone

Have a look at the LG G3 reviews and you’ll see its Quad HD screen had weak view angles and it killed the battery fast. Now, LG is already rushing to a 3K display according to rumors and I don’t get their obsession for premieres. Anyway, here’s a potential render for the LG G4, a new one:

LG G4 New Render Makes the Device Feel More Like a Giant Phablet Than a Phone

This model features a very interesting design for the back camera, with a strange metal rectangle below the camera. I can only suppose it’s a sensor of sorts or a button. This LG G4 concept is also curved, but in a more strange way, than the LG G Flex 2. The curve is a bit exaggerated, if you ask me. This smartphone is said to adopt a Snapdragon 810 CPU, 4 GB of RAM and potentially a 20 MP camera.

LG G4 New Render Makes the Device Feel More Like a Giant Phablet Than a Phone

The UI will look like the excellent one from the LG G3, that frankly doesn’t require changes right now. There’s no way of knowing what material will be used here, but the rush for premieres of LG, may just bring us a new material, like ceramic, just as Huawei did, or maybe carbon fiber. What happened to the volume buttons and On/Off buttons.

This concept was created by Rishi Ramesh.
