Russian designer Grisha Serov has imagined a new iPhone concept, one that uses a steel case, which is very good looking. I have to say that we’re finally seeing an original and old school iPhone, that takes us back to the times of loved iPhone 3GS form factor. The phone is called iPhone Edition.

This newcomer has very slim bezels, a shiny metal case and it puts the On/Off button back to the top. The volume buttons are now one big button, that also serves as the mute switch. The camera doesn’t protrude anymore, although the phone becomes a bit thicker. There’s a glossy loop now instead of thick stripes to allow connectivity on this metal device. iPhone Edition has a 4.5 inch display, so in some ways it’s sort of like an iPhone 6 Mini.

The speakers are now more discrete and the device’s edges are all rounded. From what I can see the designer got rid of the Home button and implemented its features and the Touch ID on the On/Off button area at the top. Considering the phone is so compact, your index finger will always reach that area, so that’s a smart move. I’m loving this shiny metal brick!

ZTE Evoke Imagined by Nick Ludgate, Has a Nexus Phone Vibe

Designer Nick Ludgate has imagined a ZTE phone and this brand doesn’t get on our radar too often, I have to say. The newcomer is called ZTE Evoke and it comes with a 5.9 inch 2560 x 1440 pixel display, as well as a Snapdragon 805 processor, a quad core clocked at 2.7 GHz.

The ZTE concept phone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and integrates at the back a 20 megapixel camera with laser focus and ZTE Trueshot feature. There’s a 4000 mAh battery inside, 32 or 64 GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot and finally we’ve got ZTE DuoSound Speakers integrated here, which are dual front facing speakers. They’re inspired by HTC’s BoomSound, apparently.

ZTE Evoke has minimal bezels and the design isn’t very shocking or surprising, since we are dealing with a regular rectangular slab of metal or plastic after all. Well, at least the top and bottom edges are narrow, which is something many device makers have forgotten how to do.

Samsung S Guardian Takes the Galaxy Note Edge to a New Level

After the Galaxy Note Edge… comes the Samsung S Guardian, according to Mladen Milic. The design of the handset reminds us of the Note Edge, except for a few essential changes. Both sides of the screen are curved this time and both side areas are active and usable.

The device also gets USB 3.0 memory in a portable external fashion. There’s 64 GB of internal storage and 512 of external memory with 240 Mb/s reading and 160 Mb/s writing speed. Basically, the Samsung S Guardian just got a hard drive… In order to take the memory off you press a physical button and you’re done. I’m pretty sure such SSDs exist in some way or another, but I haven’t seen a commercial one yet.

This concept Samsung phone comes with an Exynos 5433 processor, a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display, 4 GB of RAM and a front 8 MP camera. It also has an 18 megapixel shooter at the back, a 3000 mAhb battery, fast charging and a fingerprint scanner. The external memory is protected by 128 bit encryption and the body of the Samsung S Guardian phone is made from aluminum.

The design is stylish and simple, much in the vein of the Galaxy S II and Note series. If you ask me, this is more of a smartphone SSD concept than a phone render…

Ancel Lim Teases New Arvo Handsets With Huge Resolution, 64 Bit CPU

If you look up Arvo, you’ll see it’s a brand of handsets envisioned by designer Ancel Lim. Today he shows us a bunch of teasers, meant to promote new upcoming models from this series. Apparently, the devices will be quite strong.

Ancel Lim Teases New Arvo Handsets With Huge Resolution, 64 Bit CPU

We can’t say when the render will be ready, but it will be soon. The flagship newcomer has a 64 bit processor, a 2160 x 3480 display and judging by past renders, the newcomer won’t stray away from a rectangular body and even capacitive keys. We can’t even guarantee it will have Android, since the designer came up with some kickass Windows Phone models. By the way, Arvo is the invention of Ancel Lim and this handset brand doesn’t exist.

We encourage designers to think outside the box and come up with their own designs, brands and concepts, so we won’t be stuck in a world of HTC, Samsung and Sony… What do you expect from this Arvo? How does a 4K display phone concept sound?

Rishi Ramesh Presents New HTC One M9 Design

As if the HTC One M9 hasn’t been the topic of speculation enough, today we get a new render of the device, one imagined by Rishi Ramesh. The device shows up with a metallic case, as expected, but it’s a bit wider than I imagined it to be.

The product keeps the Duo camera of the predecessor, but that cam is smaller now and it comes with a dual LED, dual tone flash next to it. Frankly speaking, I wonder if the camera got smaller, or the device got bigger… Anyway, the HTC One M9 also has narrow screen edges and interestingly there’s something that looks like a camera button on the lower right area of the concept.

The BoomSound speakers have been made more proeminent and they now feature more tiny holes than before, but I’ve seen this type of design at work before and such areas tend to gather dust, especially if they’re on a lower level compared to the rest of the case. Other than that we’ve got the typical rounded metal case and probably the usual specs. Do you prefer a wider or narrower One M9?

Samsung Galaxy S6 Rendered by Omer Pala, Features Sonic Master Audio and Fully Metallic Body

If you just click the name Samsung Galaxy S6, you’ll be invaded by a series of concepts, some of them with surprising designs. I can’t complain about that since the same happened with the Galaxy S5 and still Samsung had its own way. Today we give one more Galaxy S6 render, courtesy of Omer Pala, who also throws in a series of welcome specs.

The smartphone has a Snapdragon 810 64 bit processor, a Quad HD Super AMOLED display with an atypical resolution of 3200 x 2400 pixels, plus a 4700 mAh battery. This battery would be more at home on a 7 inch tablet, rather than a phone. This Galaxy S6 concept packs 4.5 GB of RAM, a 21 megapixel camera at the back and a front 5 MP shooter. This device also includes dual speakers, placed at the back of the device, powered by SonicMaster Audio technology.

The handset is water and dust resistant and the CPU I mentioned before runs at 3.5 GHz, which is a pretty high clock rate. Samsung Galaxy S6 features a changed recent apps button, now a button next to the volume, that allows you to close the recently opened applications. Finally, the phone comes with a fully metallic body and a premium finish. The product comes with 4 colors with metallic design and texture: pink, blue, dark gray and light gray.

What do you think?

Sony S Watch Concept Rendered Together With Two New Midrange Sony Handsets

We’ve come across a few new Sony concept phones, created by Babak Soren and we also uncovered a smartwatch with the Sony brand on it. The watch is quite elegant and sporty and I like the way the heart monitoring is shown.

The body is circular here and the overall design is slightly tweaked from the Moto 360. The strap of the watch is interchangeable and be replaced with differently colored versions. This model has an OLED display, an all metal frame and comes with features like an altimeter, accelerometer, thermometer and even a sort of… stethoscope. As far as the other models are concerned, these are midrange Sony phones.

These models are based on one core point of view: users hate glossy plastic, so they’re made of opaque plastic and offer good grip. The midrange Sony concept phone shown here comes with a 3000 mAh battery, an 8 megapixel camera, a 4.7 inch HD display, Snapdragon 410 processor and 1.5 GB of RAM, as well as Android 5.0 Lollipop. Which one of these devices do you fancy the most?

HTC One M9 Concept November 2014 Edition by Hasan Kaymak (Part 2)

Because Hasan Kaymak sent us 20+ pictures of his new HTC One M9 concept phone, we decided to split the gallery into two articles. The first also included a video and we used it to let you know that the designer needs a more powerful PC to design other cool concepts, such as this HTC One M9.

You can donate to him on Paypal at hasan.kaymak90@gmail.com. As far as the HTC One M9 goes, we’re dealing with a slimmer version of the M8, one that increases the battery capacity to 4100 mAh. There’s an 8 ultrapixel camera on board, at the back and at the front we’ve got an 8 megapixel selfie cam. The flash at the back seems bigger this time and we get a Duo camera again, probably with 3D features again.

The BoomSound speakers are present and they’re more subtle now, plus they’re lines not holes. The body is made of brushed metal and I’m willing to bet we’ll get a Quad HD screen and a Snapdragon 805 or 810 processor. You can also notice a pretty looking gold version of the HTC One M9, as well as a sexy red one here.

Hanz Manuel Presents: New Lumia Silver Concept

Hanz Manuel Presents: New Lumia Silver ConceptHanz Manuel Presents: New Lumia Silver ConceptHanz Manuel Presents: New Lumia Silver ConceptHanz Manuel Presents: New Lumia Silver ConceptHanz Manuel Presents: New Lumia Silver Concept (11 votes, average: 3.45 out of 5)

My gut feeling tells me that 2014 is going to end without a new Microsoft Lumia phone, so at least we’ve got concepts. Hanz Manuel has rendered a device he calls the Lumia Silver and you can check it out below. There’s a clear Fabula Design vibe going on, but in a slimmer version this time.

Hanz Manuel Presents: New Lumia Silver Concept

The designer has done a very fine job with the camera area, that is probably a Pureview, a well integrated one that doesn’t give the handset a hump. The screen’s front glass extends from one edge to the other, while the body of this Lumia seems to be made of quality plastic material, in the good Lumia tradition. We still have capacitive buttons below the display, although at some point we should move on to virtual ones.

The camera button is also present here, in spite of that also being rumored to be canned relatively soon. The Lumia Silver concept looks a bit wide, but still it looks comfy in the grip of a regular user, if you ask me. The screen looks very crisp, so it’s probably Full HD or Quad HD material.

If you look up HTC M9 on this website, you’ll find at least half a dozen different versions, some of the best being rendered by Hasan Kaymak. Today we get Jermaine Smit’s vision of this device and it’s quite hot. This model has the specs many of you expect and a design that involves narrow bezels and a metal body.

HTC M9 Rendered by Jermaine Smit: Check Out His Version! (Video)

There’s a Snapdragon 808 2.8 GHz processor inside, 3 GB of RAM, a Quad HD display and 16, 32 or 64 GB of storage. We’ve got a 4 or 6 Ultrapixel back camera, but the designer claims we may also end up with a 13 megapixel shooter. The device keeps the BoomSound speakers very closer to the top and bottom areas at the front. There’s a 2.9 ultrapixel front camera and the back one offers optical image stabilization this time.

The front side is all glass, while the back and sides are all metal. The HTC M9 is very slim and it’s shown here in black or white. The screen is a 5.1 incher with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution. Notice how the curve of the back is more gentle now and the handset feels like it sits better in the user’s hand than the predecessors.
