We have seen a glass tablet or two, but the idea of glass phone hasn’t been practiced in a while. Well, apparently, there’s a real phone of this kind coming and it has a name: Coolpad Dazen X7. The newcomer is shown below, first in a hands on shot with a prototype and then a render.

This device stands out of the crowd through the fact it has a case made of glass and it’s meant to debut officially on January 8th 2015. That’s the date when we get to find out what the finalized version of the phone will look like. The image above is a bit too optimistic in my book, since the phone is incredibly thin and has no bezels, plus a glass case poses fragility issues.

Of course, it may be made of sapphire glass, Gorilla Glass or some other hardcore material, but something tells me Coolpad will try to keep it reasonably priced. The render below is actually more realistic, only showing that the central part of the phone is made of glass, while the bottom and probably the top are made of metal. Basically, this isn’t very far from the Sharp Aquos Crystal, if you think about it… Will a transparent phone be a hit in this day and age?

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 2 is Basically Bendgate Done Right

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is probably the most bold design launched this year, because it shows that Samsung is not afraid to take risks. Those risks include the public not liking the phone and honestly speaking, I can’t see anyone buying it over the Note 4… Well, we may well have a Galaxy Note Edge 2 and for now there’s only a concept of that model, created by Rishi Ramesh.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 2 is Basically Bendgate Done Right

From that looks of it, the new Note Edge is much thinner than its predecessor and its curved display is more subtle now. The Home button sticks out more and the edge with the screen seems a bit too sharp to be comfy. It also looks incredibly slippery, with the screen being now even closer to the edge, if possible… It appears that the top and bottom bezels are also smaller and there’s total continuity between the main screen and curved area.

The first Note Edge made the secondary part feel a bit separated from the main screen, if you ask me. There’s no point in detailing specs here, since they’re probably all bumped up from the current gen. I imagine something like 4 GB of RAM, Snapdragon 810, 32 GB storage, 20 megapixel camera and so forth…

Nokia C1 Phone is Inspired by Nokia N1, Comes From TRUE Nokia

As you probably know, there are two Nokias out there: the one that Microsoft bought (with its brand dissolved) and the Finnish series of branches, that recently got into hardware by launching the Nokia N1 tablet. Inspired by that device, Deviantart member mrtomone has created a phone concept called Nokia C1.

Nokia C1 Phone is Inspired by Nokia N1, Comes From TRUE Nokia

The handset is basically a more compact version of the N1, with a metallic body and some of its specs. This one is a 5 inch phone with a Full HD resolution, Android 5.0 Lollipop with Z Launcher in the mix and an Intel Atom quad core CPU inside. There’s 2 GB of RAM here, 32 GB of storage, an 8 megapixel back camera and a front 5 MP shooter. Stereo speakers are also here and we should also get a generous battery.

The Nokia N1 has been called an iPad Mini clone, so I suspect the Nokia C1 may be a bit of an iPhone clone. I expect a reversible USB port on board, just like the Nokia N1’s, plus a fully laminated screen, once again like the N1. This model should be pretty slim and Nokia’d better be careful not to upset mighty Apple with any resemblance to their products…

Microsoft Lumia Spruce is a Solid Flagship With 4K Display, Flippable Camera

Created by Bartlomiej Tarnowski, the brand new Microsoft Lumia Spruce concept phone wants to be more and better than the Lumia 930 and potentially even the Lumia 1030. It comes with a small-ish 5 inch screen (by current standards), but the 4K resolution is truly impressive.

This model runs Windows 8.1 according to the designer, but Windows 10 is more close to reality right now. It also comes with a Snapdragon 810, which is a bit too much for a Windows Phone, so a Snapdragon 805 would suffice. The handset comes with a microSD card slot, with support for up to 128 GB and there’s also a Li-Ion 3220 mAh battery inside. The selling point of the device is its 20 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, that you can use as both the front and back camera.

The camera has a nice pull out mechanism, that makes it easy to flip and be turned into a selfie cam. There’s also 32 GB of storage on board, 3 GB of RAM and I have to say that the highlighted square associated to the camera makes me think of modularity. Maybe attach future bigger Pureview cams to this Lumia concept? Nice take on the Fabula Design by the way.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Rendered by Hasan Kaymak Innovations 2015 (Video)

Felt a craving for a new Samsung Galaxy S6 concept? Well, here it is, courtesy of Hasan Kaymak Innovations 2015. It’s a metal beauty, that does itself the great favour of not copying or mimicking any iPhone or HTC model.

One of the main problem that all Galaxy Note and Galaxy S models had was the sound. Well, this newcomer brings dual front speakers, that look very hot and probably sound great. The handset uses a metal back and generally a metal case and integrates what seems to be a potent front camera. We’ve got a 24 megapixel back shooter, probably supplied by Sony as usual, plus a new type of flash, if I can speculate.

It’s interesting to see the whole flash/heart rate sensor area minimized into that small dot below the camera. Also, while other models have a main metal back and plastic upper and lower part, this one does it the other way. The speakers are probably my favourite part of the concept, as well as its metallic body. Can’t quite make out what the new TouchWiz is about, but I like its shades of blue.

HKI One Wear Would Make a Fine HTC Android Wear Watch

Hasan Kaymak pulled from his archives a smartwatch concept dubbed HKI One Wear, that would make a fine HTC Android Wear device. HKI stands for Hasan Kaymak Innovations and this model features a rounded body and elegant metallic strap.

HKI One Wear Would Make a Fine HTC Android Wear Watch

The device has some nice looking crown buttons on the side, very elegantly finished. The device runs Android Wear with a very minimalistic UI and don’t be surprised if BlinkFeed makes the cut, as well as HTC Watch and other services and features, maybe even a remote Zoe or something. It would be nice if HTC launched its very own fitness service, making their watch even more unique, but enough about HTC and let’s focus on HKI.

This one is a premium model, certainly not a mass market one, but rather one with a stainless steel case and strap, that should make you spend hundreds of dollars for. Why not thrown in a sapphire glass, a phosphorescent glowing light and an augmented reality app that connects to your phone and shows you stuff from your surroundings on the watch’s screen. How crazy is that?

Senior Phones Rendered as Bracelet and Basic Monochrome Handset

Designed by an entire team of experts and designers, the following senior phones are original pieces of work intended for the elderly users. One of them is bracelet, a sci fi looking one, with a very minimalistic UI and the other is a monochrome handset shaped like the figure 8.

The first bracelet is made of hypoallergenic materials, most likely and its display is seamless and very easily readable, in black and white. The body of the smartwatch is curved and it also includes a slightly lit Home button of sorts. The phone shown in the last image below also features a minimal UI and I’d say it’s based on E Ink technology, if I were to speculate again.

All we have is speculations, since the designers didn’t reveal any details about the devices. The creators of the concepts are  Prof. Wang Yan, Prof. Zhang Yan, Fan Jiayu, Li Yajun, Liu Jianjun, Wang Shenyuan & Xue Lijuan. The phone is ergonomically shaped, has a curved front side and a numeric keypad shown.

HTC Slim Concept is Back, Looking Even Hotter

Remember this “slab of metal”, the HTC Slim concept? We only had a single render of the device back then and it was pretty impressive and today we get another render, this time with the facade of the handset.

HTC Slim Concept is Back, Looking Even Hotter

There are dual front speakers at the front, with a bigger size than usual. The phone is shown in black and white and appears to be so slim, that it feels like a front panel for a handset, rather than a handset itself. HTC Slim is designed by Webomedia in Croatia and it would be nice if the HTC Hima looked anything like this. Just like we said initially, the HTC One X vibe is stronger here than the HTC One, which isn’t exactly bad.

Also, notice the Beats logo on board, which is clearly forgotten there, since that partnership is long gone. The screen of the HTC Slim is an edge to edge one, the case of made of metal and the smartphone only seems to integrate a back camera with a single LED flash, not a dual camera. The front camera also sees pretty big.

Nick Ludgate Presents: ZTE Evoke X, a Phablet With Aluminum Unibody Design

After creating the ZTE Evoke, designer Nick Ludgate comes up with the ZTE Evoke X, a phablet with an aluminum unibody construction. The device reminds me a bit of a HTC One and it integrates DUOSound speakers.

Nick Ludgate Presents: ZTE Evoke X, a Phablet With Aluminum Unibody Design

ZTE Evoke X packs a 5.9 inch display with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and an IPS panel. It comes with a 20 megapixel TrueShot camera, 32 or 64 GB of storage, 2 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 805 quad core 2.7 GHz chipset. The speakers are both integrated at the front and the device’s Android buttons are virtual ones, not capacitive ones. Even the two stripes at the back of the HTC One are replicated.

Nick Ludgate even claims that this concept handset has a price tag, around $249 for 32 GB of storage. Considering the specs and diagonal size, I see this ZTE phone as both an alternative and a rival for the Nexus 6.

Fake Samsung Galaxy S6 Prototype Stirs Up the Web…

It’s a good thing people are starting to spot what leak is a fake and what not and an example is the Samsung Galaxy S6 model below. The Galaxy S6 prototype was quickly debunked by Nowhereelse.fr, after fooling quite a number of websites.

Fake Samsung Galaxy S6 Prototype Stirs Up the Web…

Apparently, it’s simply the Galaxy Alpha, with narrower edges, a smaller Home button and with a bit more rounded edges. The earpiece has been made smaller, the format feels narrow, which is odd for a Galaxy S and the sensors have been covered. Interestingly there seems to be a camera above the earpiece, in Apple style. One can’t say 100% that the final model won’t look like this, but at the end of the day, this one is no prototype for sure.

We’ve also heard of a few specs, on the occasion of the leak, including a 5.2 inch 2560 x 1440 pixel display, a 16 megapixel camera with OIS and 4K video capture, plus a 5 megapixel front shooter, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and Android 5.0 Lollipop with a fresh TouchWiz.
