Hasan Kaymak Teases 2016 Bezel-Free Smartphone That Outclasses HTC One M10

August 31st, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

We know Hasan Kaymak from his many HTC concept phones, particularly a beautiful HTC One M10. Well, he’s ready to top that design with the following render below. This model is one of his own brand handsets, a so called HKI Phone, that’s meant to be a 2016 flagship.

All we have is a teaser for now, but HTC influences are clear. The device adopts a bezel-free approach and seeing the powerful light coming out of the front Home button area, I’m expecting a potent selfie camera, that scans the iris and also involves a flash. Seeing how the blood vessels in our eyes become very visible with the proper exposure, this camera may also aid the handset measure blood pressure. Of course, putting the camera below the display would be a bit strange.

In the end it could just be a Home button with a twist. The design is clearly composed of glass and metal and the UI feels a bit like HTC Sense, but with more transparency. What do you think of this beautiful concept?

Entouch Concept Mobile Brings Hope to Blind Users, With Touch Braille Display

August 30th, 2015

We have heard about screens that have the ability to rise and form shapes and palpable surfaces or even physical buttons. This gets an entirely fresh meaning, once you see the concept below. It’s called Entouch and it’s a Braille technology touchscreen phone.

REDDOT BEHANCE

A group of designers, Won-kyoung Seo, Lee Kangkyung & Hye Ryung Lee has used the tactile technology to help visually impaired users interact with touchscreens. This is more like an external case for the handset, with an extra layer of tactility for the smartphone and a click button. You just slip your handset into the Entouch and it will translate visual data from the camera into bumps, that show what you are capturing.

REDDOT BEHANCE

This is fantastic and amazing, allowing people with visual impairments to take photos and interpret what they’re capturing. The accessory is easy to attach and detach and be used with any smartphone. The device is also fully synced with the handset, offering real time response to the motions, images and actions. A microfluidic system with thin fluid channels under the polymer layer is present here.

Excellent idea!

Vision Pro Watch 3 Concept Finalized by Hass. T; It’s a Moto 360 and LG G Watch Rival

August 29th, 2015

A few days ago we got hold of a smartwatch render, made by designer Hass. T. Well, today that render has turned into a gallery of designs for the watch, called Vision Pro Watch 3. The designer intended this model as a rival for the Moto 360 and LG G Watch Urbane.

Vision Pro Watch 3 concept 1

The product is actually the follow up to the Vision Pro Watch 3 and an evolution from that model. The entire smartwatch is made out of metal and it’s meant as a luxury gadget. The bezels are made of brushed stainless steel, while the sides that fix the strap onto the body are made of polished steel. This model’s screen gets Gorilla Glass protection and the strap is made of a special hexagonal quilted leather “hexa quilted leather”.

Vision Pro Watch 3 concept 2

What you see here is the Vision Pro Watch 3 version in champagne gold, with a chocolate brown hex quilted leather strap and a stainless steel clasp. The OS is Android Wear, but heavily skinned with a custom theme, called Pro Watch OS. The designer promised to show more shots of that OS soon enough. What do you think?

Luna Phone is Minimalistic/Idealistic and a Feature Phone With Stylish LEDs

August 29th, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (4 votes, average: 3.25 out of 5)

Usually we cover concepts of smartphones, but today we have a glance at a feature phone render, created by Jorge Arbelo Cabrera. Dubbed Luna Phone, the device is very stylish and hugely minimalistic. It has a series of backlight LEDs and its back side works as a simple screen.

Luna Phone concept 1

It shows the phone numbers and messages and there are no buttons here, which is the interesting part. You can write on the touchpad, call, save new contacts, write messages, all of that by using a special touchpad below the area with backlight LEDs. It’s all based on drawing symbols, so you draw a plus for a new contact, draw letters and symbols for input and call numbers and that’s that.

Drawing each letter isn’t exactly a fast method to get your message across, as the Nokia Z launcher has shown, but it’s certainly different, right? Now, if you could draw groups of letters that would be something, but I doubt it…

Nexus 5.2 Rendered With Android Marshmallow on Board

August 28th, 2015

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

Well, here’s a nice start for a concept: the designer thinks that both Nexus 2015 phones will be ugly, so he designed his own. The Nexus 5.2 concept is the creation of Deviantart member TheFreal and it’s pictured below.

Nexus 5.2 concept august 2015

This feels like a more old school smartphone, with an extra frame around the edges, that looks more like glass than metal. The format is rectangular with slightly rounded corners and we’ve got dual front speakers. The volume buttons are a bit too low to be comfy, to be honest, but the Power button is placed right where it needs to be. This doesn’t feel like an out of the ordinary render, but rather a predictable one.

It’s true that we can’t see the back or the potential maker of the phone, but this feels more like LG and less like Huawei. In the end two aspects must always be taken into account: an ergonomic and resilient case. Beauty is also important, but neglected by so many device makers today… Not everyone is Samsung after all, as they did a truly fine job with the Galaxy models this year.  I’d still like to see the back of the Nexus 5.2 before truly judging it.

Flexible Phone Prototype From AUO Bends to Control Applications

August 28th, 2015

Concepts make flexible phones seem like they’re right here, easy to use and comfy. In reality, everything that’s cool is happening in a lab and it’s still in the early stage of development. Take the prototype below, from Asian firm AUO. It’s a bendable screen smartphone, that flexes to control certain apps and features.

auo bendyphone flexible phone

Spotted by Engadget Chinese at Touch Taiwan 2015, this model was being showcased by a local manufacturer called AUO. The prototype integrates a 5 inch 720p AMOLED panel, that’s unbreakable and bendable. It seems to be much more flexible than the LG G Flex 2 for example, which is quite the compliment. You can see in the animation below how a gentle flexing of the screen controls the Google Earth app for example.

AUO-bendyphone

AUO claims that the device has “six degrees of freedom” for bending input. I can easily see such a technology used for gaming in the future. AUO also says that this tech can be expanded for phones with higher resolutions and even bigger devices. We can see it incorporated into tablets and used to twist a slate’s edge to turn a page.

Sony Xperia Z5 Press Pictures Leaked, Detailing 23 Megapixel Camera

August 27th, 2015

It really feels like it’s the end of the holidays, since designers aren’t churning out concepts like they used to. In lack of something better, we turn to renders, like the ones below. So, it appears that Sony Xperia Z5 has just leaked in a few press pictures.

Sony Xperia Z5 press render leak 1

The device keeps the usual rectangular form factor and I can’t seem to spot its Power button with fingerprint scanner. Apparently, the leak is pretty much official, since it comes from Sony Mobile’s social media channels. Anyway, the future Sony flagship is coming to IFA 2015, with a 23 megapixel camera at the back, sporting a 1/2.3 inch sensor, of the Exmor RS variety.

Sony Xperia Z5 press render leak 2

We see a slightly rounded and massive metal frame on the sides and a flat glass panel upfront. Another piece of news says that there will also be an Xperia Z5 Premium model, a bigger phablet version of the Xperia Z5, with 4K resolution. The Xperia Z5 Compact is still in the cards as well. Frankly, I was hoping for more design innovation, but I’m guessing the Power button with fingerprint scanner and perhaps an edge to edge screen is the best we can get.

Microsoft Cityman and Talkman Just Leaked and They Look Just as Expected

August 27th, 2015

Well, the Microsoft Cityman and Talkman aren’t clearly the Lumia 950/940 and the Lumia 950 XL/940 XL right now, but they’ve just leaked in some very clear renders. It all happened on Twitter over the past hours, courtesy of @bdsams and @evleaks.

First came @bdsams with a picture of the Microsoft Cityman, the bigger of the two models, shown with a beautiful blue case and charger connected. Then @evleaks replied to the tweet posting two renders of the upcoming Windows 10 Mobile flagships. Talk about a big leak! The Cityman is the bigger phablet, with the typical massive camera, with triple LED flash, as rumored, as well as polycarbonate case.

The Talkman features a 5.2 inch screen, so it’s in smartphone territory and it has an interesting metal ring around the camera, plus a back that feels more like a HTC than a Microsoft Lumia. Both handsets will have USB Type C ports, Snapdragon chipsets, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB storage and 20 megapixel Pureview cameras. What do you say about the design?

Lunark is a Dual Folding Smartphone With a Special Hinge Included

August 26th, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (5 votes, average: 2.60 out of 5)

Remember when Sony tried to make a hinge-based phone tablet thingie and failed? It was called Sony Tablet P and it felt like something to put your eye glasses in. Now we have a hinged device with two faces, rendered by Allan Ospina.

Lunark bi folding smartphone concept 1

This concept phone is called Lunark and it’s described as a revolutionary smartphone, that uses a special hinge, allowing its dual screens to work in multiple positions. An example here involves taking a phone call on one screen and using an app on the other one. For gaming, one of the screens will show the gameplay and the other the controls, pretty much like a Nintendo DS.

Lunark bi folding smartphone concept 2

Photo sharing is also much easier this way, by drag and dropping content from one screen to the other. The screens get closed together, so this means extra protection from scratches and other rough contacts. From what I can see we’re also getting metal frames here and what seems to be a big Home button. I can’t quite figure out if there’s an extra display on the outside or not…

Curve Phone Render is a Folding Device With Touch Buttons on the Side

August 26th, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (5 votes, average: 2.60 out of 5)

Designer Kyle Hatfield, the same guy behind yesterday’s iPhone 7 with curved edges has created the Curve. This is a concept phone with a bent design and probably a foldable case. The handset has touchscreen buttons along the side.

Folding phone concept kyle hatfield 1

This smartphone brings a large display and aluminum finish at the bottom and top. In the middle it’s all glass and at the back there’s a metal piece. I can’t figure out what the thing below the display is, maybe it’s a speaker, or maybe a sort of sensor. A special curved dock has also been envisioned by the designer, leading me to believe that the device stays like this and doesn’t flex.

Folding phone concept kyle hatfield 2

The Curve Phone is pretty stylish and slim, but I sure hope it can at least be flexed into a straight body, like the LG G Flex for example. I’m looking forward to see what else this designer comes up with, especially since he seems specialized in curved display smartphones.
