BlackBerry Venice Android Phone Gets Very Interesting Leak

July 6th, 2015

Who is the leak master? @Evleaks, that’s who and he’s got dibbs on all the leaks related to the BlackBerry Venice. The handset is widely known as the first Android-based BlackBerry unit, that should be coming this fall.

BlackBerry Venice concept

It was supposed to be a slider, but nothing is clear right now, especially from the image above. What’s clear is that we’ll be getting a very generous speaker at the bottom and that portion may or may not go on into a QWERTY sliding keyboard. The road from BB OS to Android was clear, once BlackBerry started allowing the sideloading of Android apps via APKs and also offered support for the Amazon App Store.

BlackBerry Venice was flashed a bit at MWC 2015, as a slider, but it wasn’t turned on. From what I can see, the phone is made of a solid plastic material, not metal. The display has curved edges, that are very narrow, making the handset more elegant and sleek. Will this be a hit this fall?

Microsoft Lumia 940 Rendered This Time as a Jonas Daehnert Concept

July 6th, 2015

Jonas Daehnert has created a new concept, the Microsoft Lumia 940, a device that has been rendered again and again over the past weeks. The phone is back with a stylish design and it uses up the rumors that appeared on the web lately regarding this smartphone.

For example, this Lumia 940 packs a 5.2 inch Full HD screen, an edge to edge one with curved edges and also integrates a 20 megapixel back camera, with triple LED flash. USB Type C connectivity is also here, plus an iris scanner and Windows 10 for Mobile. The triple LED flash thing has been seen again and again in leaks, so I’m starting to believe it’s real.

The facade seems to be all glass, while the metal portion is integrated as the side frame and the back seems like a comfy polycarbonate affair. Jonas has imagined this model in green, red or gray and its back camera bulk is not as big as the one of previous models. From what I know, Microsoft was ready to give up capacitive buttons, so I’m not sure those are required.

Mysterious Xiaomi Phone Gets Leaked, With Dual Back Camera

July 5th, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (3 votes, average: 3.67 out of 5)

You must have noticed that when we don’t have any concept phones received via email, we resort to prototypes, designs and leaks. Well, the latter is here today, with a leak of a mystery Xiaomi phone, shown below.

It has a dual camera at the back, which is a trend I last saw on various iPhone 6s and OnePlus 2 renders, plus the real Huawei Honor 6 Plus. I see that the phone ha s a glossy back, so it probably has a glass back. It seems pretty slim and the frame is made of metal. My speculation is that at the bottom there’s an USB Type C port and there’s a dual LED flash between the two cameras.

Judging by the way the light reflects here, the handset seems a bit curved. The smartphone is narrow, elongated and feels a bit like a phablet, rather than a regular phone. I can’t understand why phone makers insist on integrating dual cameras… It’s true that refocusing and applying bokeh effects is pretty cool, but is that all we can dream of optic-wise?

Pouria Riyahi Presents the Microsoft Lumia 940 New Vision

July 5th, 2015

I’m fascinated by the amount of love Windows Phone is getting from designers. I mean, they must love the platform or the Lumia hardware, since they keep imagining new models, like the one below. The Microsoft Lumia 940 has been rendered again, this time by Pouria Riyahi, who did a fine job at it. Let’s see what’s new!

First of all, the designer is not afraid of a beefier approach, with a massive handse, filled with metal and plastic. We’re dealing with a 5.2 incher here, that’s supposed to feature an iris scanner, as well as a 20 megapixel main camera and a secondary 5 MP selfie shooter. Windows 10 for Mobile is obviously the OS. This phone has Dolby acoustics, 3D Touch, a triple LED flash as rumored and Zeiss optics.

The phone lens is square, in a way that resembles the Windows logo. As you can see, the Microsoft Lumia 940 concept is slightly curved, for a better grip in the user’s hand. The back design features “soft lines” and the overall format was “inspired by diamonds”, according to Pouria Riyahi. The outer frame is made of aluminum and the upper and lower portions are angled, thus including a larger speaker and bigger screen.

There are two notification LEDs embedded within the Start button  and overall, this beefy model feels like a handset that would belong in a Transformers movie, turning into that little annoying robot.

iPhone 6S Leaked Case Shows Similar Design Compared to the Predecessor

July 4th, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (5 votes, average: 3.00 out of 5)

The folks of 9to5Mac managed to get their hands on images of the iPhone 6S chassis somehow, ahead of this fall’s unveiling. As expected, we’re not getting many cosmetic changes here, but as the poets say “it’s what’s inside that counts”.

iPhone 6s leaked case 1

As usual an “S” upgrade means an improved camera, both at the front and back. A Foxconn leak showed we will get a 12 megapixel main camera with 4K video capture, while the front shooter will be upgraded to 5 megapixels. We’ve heard rumors that Apple may be giving up on the antenna lines at the back, but the images shown here seem to show that they’re going to keep those.

iPhone 6s leaked case 2

Various sources keep saying that the iPhone 6s is a bit thicker, but this leak doesn’t seem to reveal that. Inside is where the changes happen, with changes in the placement of the mounting point for the new logic board and components. The pictures shown here also dismiss the rumor about a dual back camera, that appeared on the web days ago.

The connector port, speaker and audio jack remain unchanged, so it’s not yet time to replace Lightning with USB Type C. Obviously, the buttons stay the same and my hope is that the camera won’t protrude again. Honestly speaking, I can’t see this design beating the fantastic Galaxy S6 Edge…

It’s Official! This is the First Windows 11 Concept: Project Microsoft Mico

July 3rd, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (12 votes, average: 3.75 out of 5)

Swedish designer Viktor Hammarberg is the very first designer to imagine Windows 11 as a concept, or at least the first one we know of. He has imagined a fictional concept design of Microsoft Mico, a handset that runs Windows 11 for mobile.

Microsoft Mico Windows 11 concept 1

The phone seems more like a placeholder that showcases a brand new UI and a new approach. We’ve got a 15 megapixel camera here with a “slight fisheye built in” and flash. Microsoft Mico has the Windows logo embedded with fluorescent lights and can also be used as a small screen for selfie reference at the back side. Viktor also included an “Every” button, that once clicked functions as a Back button and if double clicked functions as a Home button.

Microsoft Mico Windows 11 concept 2

You can hold the button 1 second for lock and hold 5 seconds for off. HD speakers and microphone are available here and the screen is curved and features an edge to edge approach. This is a Retina HD display, that covers the entire facade. As far as the UI goes, the tiles have returned, in 3D fashion and looking more flat now. What do you think of this Windows 11 concept? Also be sure to access the Behance page of the designer, to view more images of the renders.

HTC One MX Imagined by Hass T, With Subtle but Necessary Changes

July 2nd, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (11 votes, average: 3.82 out of 5)

Frankly speaking, I’m more excited to see the HTC Aero right now than the HTC One M10. Well, the latter has been rendered by Hass T, who named it HTC One MX (with X being 10 as a Roman numeral). The designer calls this HTC’s hero phone, so let’s get into it.

HTC One MX concept 1

The creator of the concept calls it a “refined version of the M9″, with the new USB Type C connector and a new 21 megapixel back camera with OIS. There’s BSI in the mix, a wide F/2.1 aperture and advanced autofocus, as well as dual LED flash. The handset comes with Android M with HTC Sense 7.0 on top. The design itself hasn’t changed that much.

We still get an aluminum unibody case, that’s rounded and seems slimmer now. The camera is still big and square and upfront there are the two BoomSound speakers with a discrete grille. HTC One MX is shown in what looks like a gold and “space gray” version.

Microsoft Lumia 840 is Back in a Slim and Light Package, With Windows 8.1 Update 2

July 1st, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (11 votes, average: 3.91 out of 5)

Designer Karl Jayson Panase didn’t go all the way with the Microsoft Lumia 840, that doesn’t run Windows 10 Mobile, instead relying on Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2. This is supposed to be the new main midrange handset from Microsoft and it’s also the slimmest apparently, at 8.3 mm.

Once again, this is just a concept, so not a real device, folks. The design keeps the Fabula approach, but the physical buttons seem more ergonomic now, less rigid. The camera button makes a comeback, after missing from the Lumia 640 and I see the capacitive buttons have also returned and aren’t virtual anymore. This midranger will obviously get Windows 10 Mobile and it’s relatively future proof, thanks to a 5 inch Full HD screen and a Snapdragon 610 CPU, as well as 2 GB of RAM.

The Lumia 840 has a pretty generous main camera, a 13 megapixel unit with Zeiss optics and a large 1/2.3 inch sensor. There’s also OIS 2.0, a feature present on the LG G4, so that’s a big deal. F/1.9 aperture and a dual LED flash put this camera on par with previous year Lumia flagships. Of course, Pureview on a midrange phone sounds like a bit overkill… How would the Lumia 940 appeal to the public then?

Xphone by Microsoft is a an Edge to Edge Gaming Phone With Aluminum Body

July 1st, 2015

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

A few days ago one of the former Microsoft officials said he was considering an Xbox Phone at some point and wasn’t very happy to let that project go unmade. Well, today we come across yet another Xphone render, this time made by Lucas Silva.

Microsoft Xphone concept 2

Dubbed Xphone by Microsoft, this is an edge to edge aluminum smartphone, focused on gaming and its design is based on the Xbox Elite controller. It packs a 5.2 inch Full HD screen, as well as an aluminum body. It comes in 3 colors, black, white and green and relies on a 25 megapixel back camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Pureview technology.

Microsoft Xphone concept 3

There’s a 10 megapixel front shooter, while inside we find a Snapdragon 820 octa core 2.8 GHz processor and 4 GB of RAM. The gaming phone measures 8.5 mm and uses a 4250 mAh battery. Predictably is does Xbox streaming, runs Windows 10 with Continuum and supports Xbox joystick control. To me this feels like a smaller version of the Nvidia Shield. How about you?

Quartet Vega Phone Reshapes the Metal Into a Beautiful Device

June 30th, 2015

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (6 votes, average: 3.33 out of 5)

Although I have the feeling I’ve seen this concept before, I have to say that’s a nice use of metal right here, through the Quartet Vega handset. Created by Jaeyong Lee, from South Korea in 2013, this mobile was meant to predict the design trends of 2014.

Vega Quartet 2013 concept phone 1

Taking into account the name and design approach of the device, I can’t help but think it would make a nice Pantech device… Anyway, its curved corners feel like they were taken from a fancy car, while the screen seems a bit lifted above the body, like the first gen Lumias. The metal back is pretty simple and features 5 pins that are probably used for docking or wireless charging accessories.

Vega Quartet 2013 concept phone 2

The same back reminds me of a smartwatch or elegant Swiss watch of sorts. The edges and the frame that goes all around the handset give the vibe of a sort of bumper case applied to this model. The designer claims that the Quartet Vega phone features surround 4.1 channel, an audio DAC chip inside and high quality sound streaming. This concept design is more detailed, so be sure to check the link below for a nice equalizer and a black and white interface that feels a bit like the one of the LG Prada Phone 3.0
