Getting past the cryptic headline, we’ve come across 8 crazy and futuristic Samsung concept phones, that are all shown below. They were posted on the official Samsung Norway web page, as teasers for the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Here are 8 Things That the Galaxy S6 is Not; Samsung Norway Publishes Crazy Sci fi Concepts!

What they did is take all the rumors related to the Galaxy S6 and turn them into ironical and exaggerated concepts. The result is a series of sci fi looking and futuristic devices, some of which are pretty hot. We’ve got an airborne camera phone, that looks like an insect combined with a Transformer. Then there’s that globe looking thing, that hints at the “curved” phone.

My least favourite has got to be the model with huge side speakers and oval design. There’s also an interesting transparent Samsung concept phone, totally shaped like a Nintendo Wiimote. Finally, the one that seems the most realistic is actually the foldable and flexible phone, that looks like prototypes shown at CES years ago. Also, what about that 3 segment prism phone?

Samsung Norway keeps publishing more, so keep an eye out!

After a long series of leaks related to the Galaxy S6, it’s time to look even further into the future, to a time when smartphones may have 10 nm chipsets. Meet the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge concept, rendered by Mesut G. Designs:

The device also gets a video below and at first glance I find the lower front side speaker odd. Also, the curved edges are a touch we actually expected, judging by the name. I have to say that the top front side feels a bit cramped, with the Samsung logo, camera, sensors and all that. The basic idea of the side screens doesn’t seem to be too different from the one of the Note Edge and by then it will be 3 year old technology…

That’s why I say we need something new and while the Galaxy S7 may have a solid design trait or two, it simply doesn’t feel futuristic enough. Of course, if the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge ends up having only one curved edge, it will be enough to give the S7 Edge two, right? Once again, the bottom speaker is a nice touch.

HTC One Carbon Tablet Rendered by Hasan Kaymak Innovations (Video)

Fancy a carbon fiber tablet? Well, that’s what Hasan Kaymak Innovations is proposing pretty much, via the concept designed below. The slate is called HTC One Carbon and it takes some minor cues from the HTC One M9.

This one is an 11 inch tablet, that’s aimed at pre-empting the 12 inch iPad Pro or the upcoming (rumored) Sony and Samsung big screen slates. This HTC tablet packs a Snapdragon 810 processor, a front facing 4 ultrapixel camera and a main camera without a flash. The back side seems to be based on some sort of interweaved material, like the chains of a medieval armor or a basket made of twigs.

The only objection I have is that the device seems rather thick. I also noticed two big side speakers, that feel a bit like Samsung’s older slates. I won’t be mean and say the Nexus 9 flopped, but… it kind of did. Would the HTC One Carbon do better?

Today we’re dealing with a concept called Project Aria, that’s so much more than Project Ara. It still features a modular aspect, but it also comes with holographic projection and other futuristic features.

The renders were created by 91mobiles.com and the device is supposed to be “eternally future-proof”. Project Aria comes with Android, a fully transparent screen, holographic projection, via 4 small projectors placed in the corners of the handset and modular interchangeable parts. There’s also a Lytro camera, that allows you to capture complete depths of field in images, so you can capture now and refocus later.

Specs are also crazy good, including a 5 inch UHD display with POLED panel, as well as an octa core 20 nm chip clocked at 3 GHz, a 64 bit unit by the way. There’s 4 GB of RAM included, up to 128 GB of storage, a 13 MP Lytro camera with OIS and 4K Video capture, plus 4G LTE and Bluetooth 4.1. An interesting feature, also detailed in the video below is the carbon-based super capacitor that offers 2 days of battery life with a 30 minute charge.

The designers also promise to integrate a vibration transducer speaker system, that turns any flat surface into a large speaker, enhancing the acoustics. The actual design involves a slab of glass and two main metal portions, with modular parts inserted like SD cards at the top and bottom of the glass pieces.

iPhone Square is a Brilliant Teen Phone

A few companies, such as Motorola and Nokia have launched square phones meant to be cool for teens over the years, but what about Apple? While they won’t be doing that soon, we can still dream and enjoy concepts. Enter Chike Newman, from London, who designed the iPhone Square.

iPhone Square is a Brilliant Teen Phone

The smartphone has a sliding square part below the main screen portion. This one feels like a regular iPhone sliced in half and features an edge to edge screen part. Below that we find another full screen square portion, acting as both the keyboard and an extra screen. The case is all metal and glass and frankly speaking, this is one cool looking gadget.

The camera would be a bit hard to use and holding this model with the sliding part tucked in should be kind of hard, also a bit slippery. In case you want credentials, this designer also created the iPad Contact, a transparent tablet, that became pretty popular in social media. I wonder if the iPhone Square is also transparent…

iPhone 6c is Basically the Polycarbonate iPhone 6, With a Small Twist…

If you ask the general public, they’ll tell you the iPhone 5c was a bit of a failure, although I’ve seen the odd analyst defending the product. Even Tim Cook seems unsure that this product was a good idea. Odds of seeing the iPhone 6c are slim, but didn’t stop the designers of 3Dfuture from dreaming up a concept.

iPhone 6c is Basically the Polycarbonate iPhone 6, With a Small Twist...

I mentioned in the title a twist and I’ll be quick to reveal it: the color of the polycarbonate body will be matched by the accent color of the Home button. The general format of the iPhone 6c copies the one of the iPhone 6, but I expect it to be a smidge thicker. There are also design cues taken from the iPhone 5c and I noticed that the device has a profile that seems to have been designed “in steps”.

Also, the bulging camera of the iPhone 6 is no longer protruding, instead it has a regular thickness. However, the main camera is a bit too close to the upper edge, so the lens almost goes past the top part of the phone. Could this phone be more of a hit than the 5c?

HTC One M9 With Windows 10 In the House!

Jonas Daehnert aka Phone Designer may have designed a stunning HTC One M9, but he didn’t forget its Windows Phone version. Judging by the predecessor, this unit may end up being called HTC One M9 with Windows 10.

Anyway, it keeps the slim allure, big front camera and pill shaped buttons. The screen has slim bezels and it appears that the designer uses an older version of Windows Phone here. People who are fond of Lumias may find a reason to switch to HTC if this becomes real. If only HTC would decide to throw in some extra software on the Windows machines they make.

They’re more than capable to deliver photo editing software, maybe some music software, social network or game streaming app. Anyway, try to forget about the HTC One M9 leaks for a bit and enjoy this Windows 10 concept. What do you think?

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Concept by Ivo Maric and Jermaine Smit Looks Fashionable

We already showed you a nifty video of the Samsung Galaxy S6 concept created by Ivo Maric and Jermaine Smit, so it’s time to check out their Galaxy S6 Edge creation. The device is clearly derived from the Galaxy S6, but it adds some extra screen estate on the edges.

The handset features a proeminent Home button, with a metal ring around it, as well as a metal edge, that almost goes at the back, because of the curved screen sides. The back features a very much protruding camera, also with a metal ring and what seems to be a glass surface, albeit not as shiny as on the Galaxy S6. In fact I may even dare to say this surface is matte and it may end up not being glass at all.

Having glass on the sides (partially) and front would require the back maybe to feature a change of material, to something like polycarbonate perhaps. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, in the vision of the two designers is a pretty wide smartphone, with two pill shaped and discretely integrated volume buttons and the device manages to not copy the Galaxy Note Edge, which is an achievement in itself.

You are probably fed up by Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 concepts, so let’s turn towards a relatively young company today and their future flagship. I’m talking about Meizu and their upcoming MX5 smartphone, that has been rendered below.

Meizu MX5 Rendered by uva7 Dance, Complete With Specs

We’re dealing with a concept created by uva7 dance, who has produced several interesting Xperia designs in the past. This model is actually a Quad HD phablet with 4 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. It has an Exynos 7 Octa processor, a 22 megapixel main camera with Sony Exmor RS sensor (IMX230) and a 5 MP front selfie cam. Stereo speakers are included, as well as a 4000 mAh battery.

The Meizu MX5 measures 6.4 mm in thickness, well 6.9 mm with the camera and packs 2 nano SIM card slots and a micro USB 3.1 port. The design is rectangular shaped, with rounded corners and an almost bezel free screen. The camera is center placed like on the HTC One M9 and the front side speakers also remind me of that model. The back camera setup with the physical button (or whatever that is) feels like the LG G3 and the latest ZenFones from ASUS.

What do you think?

When two designers put their minds together, a great concept comes out. This is the case of the cooperation between Ivo Maric and Jermaine Smit, that we teased here. They have been working on a finalized Galaxy S6 concept and also threw in a Galaxy S6 Edge. Today we’re here to show you the Galaxy S6 renders and check out a video of the two devices.

This Galaxy S6 model features a big protruding back camera, with a metal ring around it and the heart rate sensor and flash are placed on its side, to the right. The back of the phone is made of glass and the whole device looks a bit thicker than the 6.9 mm profile that the press is talking about. Samsung Galaxy S6 has metallic edges, very slim screen bezels and a Home button that resembles the one on the Galaxy S5.

I am #SamsungGalaxys6: An Ivo Maric and Jermaine Smit Creation (Video)

It’s a bit wider than expected and its elongated volume buttons make me think of the iPhone. Surprisingly, the way Ivo Maric and Jermaine Smit rendered the phone makes it resemble the iPhone 6 less than the renders we’ve seen out there. It may be the width… Be sure to check out the video below, for a glimpse at the Samsung Galaxy s6 Edge as well.

Wireless charging is also demonstrated in the clip, as well as the curve of the Galaxy S6 and the #perfectshot of the camera. All sorts of colour versions are rendered, too.
