Created by Deviantart user Fishbertus, this iPhone 6 concept is the same size as the iPhone 5, but this time the screen takes up the entire front of the phone. We’ve got a big display, probably around 4.5 inches or more and an Ultra HD interface.
Apps are “themed” and the handset’s UI is highly customizable. The Home button has now become a touch button and you can place the apps under the toolbar if you want, or at the top if need be. Wallpapers now get a 7+ megapixel area for animated shots and interactive wallpapers, like on Android. I guess that there may be some hardcore hardware features on this model.
Something like a 13 megapixel camera possibly made by Sony, an 8 core Apple AXX CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 to 128 GB of storage, LTE+ (crazy, right?) and en edge to edge display with 2K resolution. All of these specs are speculated by me, but they seem realistic for the end of 2014.
Now that the Nokia Lumia 925 Catwalk is official, it’s time for the EOS phone to come. DAVDesigner from Deviantart had an idea of what the device may look like, so he imagined the Nokia Lumia 960 “Catwalk”, although that codename has already been revealed.
Anyway, this is probably the Nokia EOS phone that we’re expecting in the following weeks. The device seems to have those side identations like on the iPhone, probably for the sake of the antenna. This Nokia concept uses an aluminum body, a thin one, with dual speakers at the back. We’ve got a potent Pureview camera at the back with Carl Zeiss Tessar technology and Pureview technology.
The resolution is unknown, although something like 20 or 41 megapixels may happen. The recent rumors talk about a Xenon flash here, as well as a focus assist light and a special lid for the camera lens. The specs are supposedly similar to the Lumia 920′s including a dual core CPU and 4.5 inch 768p display. The camera will probably be the bigshot here…
Martin Hajek imagined a new type of watch, the iWatch concept with a big piece of curved glass at the front. The images were used in the MacUser magazine, the April issue. As you can see, the volume buttons on the side look the same as on the iPhone.
As you can see, the image of the watch itself and the dial is the same with the one in iOS, the one borrowed from the Swiss Railways. We also have a buckle here, maybe made from leather or some other fancy and cool material. Obviously, the body of the iWatch is made out of metal, probably anodized aluminum or some other aluminum alloy.
I’m particularly intrigued by the small holes on the side of the device, with a purpose I really can’t figure out. I’m very curious what the back of the watch feels like on the user’s hand, especially considering that the iPad and iPhone’s back feels cold most of the time. So, what do you think of this iWatch concept?
Today we have two stunning iPhone concepts to show you, both coming from the same source. I’m talking about the iPhone 6 and the iPhone Mini, pictured below and based on a true edge to edge display design. Actually such a design is not that different from the Sony concept I’ve shown you yesterday.
The case is also different, with an all new aluminum carbon fiber unibody enclosure. The combo between aluminum and carbon gives the iPhone 6 a 40% weight reduction from the iPhone 5 and a 60% strength increase. The device won’t shatter when it’s dropped and it will never dent. As speculated before, there will be no more Home button and iPhone 6 with iOS 8 will allow the user to rely on multi touch gesture, that will be done on the lower touch area of the handset.
You will tap to go home, hold for Siri and double tap to multitask. HomePad gestures are 100% customizable and by the way you can hold the Home icon for 2 seconds to activate Siri. The new iPhone edge to edge measures 7.6 mm in thickness and weighs a crazy 67.2 grams. Its specs include two 2.8 GHz quad core Apple A7 processor, 4 GB of 1600 MHz memory, and a 2800 mAh battery. It will come in 128 and 256 GB versions and it packs a 4.5 inch Retina Display Widescreen edge to edge with a 754 x 1296 pixel resolution.
Upfront there’s an 8 megapixel camera for Facetime and at the back we’ve got a 20.2 Mp camera with 2K video capture and F/1.8-4.9 aperture. The camera even does RAW image capture. What do you think about this device and also what do you think of the iPhone Mini?
iOS 7 is about a month away from being unveiled at WWDC 2013 and till then I guess we have a few more concepts of the OS to check out. As you know probably, the team behind the software is now lead by Sir Jonathan Ive, leaving behind the work of Scott Forstall. This means a new approach to a new iOS…
Till that comes we get this iOS 7 concept, based on simplicity and a new set of icons. Simply Zesty created this project, or better said their Art Director, Philip Joyce did, who also came up with the video below to showcase the new UI. The lockscreen in iOS 7 keeps the slide to unlock mechanism, but now it takes up less screen estate and it’s placed at the top of the screen, in order to give options like Siri, camera and maps more room on the screen.
The colors of the overall UI are now more vivid and each and every icon has had a revamp. The iPod app UI reminds me of Soundcloud, plus this iOS 7.0 concept also features a widget Centre, that allows the user to customize the homescreen with widgets that seem cooler than those on Android. Siri also gets smarter and it’s more deeply integrated. What do you think of this concept iOS?
It’s been too long since the last iPhone concept, but luckily we have a new one right here. It’s called the iPhone 6 and it was created by Arthur Reis. It sounds more like an iPhone 5S, if you ask me, considering the specs are basically upgrades of the iPhone 5.
The back design is totally the same as the iPhone 5′s and the front is not that different. We’ve got a new Home button on board and the option to touch anywhere at the bottom of the phone, in order to reach the homescreen. Basically it’s like a Magic Trackpad, one that was mounted on an iPhone. This pretty much cancels the use of the Home button if you ask me.
The iPhone 6 is also thinner than the iPhone 6, by 20%, making it 6.1 mm in waistline. The device is promoted as “everything proof”, as mentioned in the video below. It probably means it’s water, dust and shock resistant an another feature worth mentioning is the 12 megapixel camera at the back with F/1.8 aperture and iSight Pro sensor. Overall the design is not tha different, so these minimal changes make me think of the iPhone 5S…
Designer Suman Chatterjee imagined a Samsung phone with Ubuntu OS on board and allowed us to pick a name for it. I thought that the name Samsung U1000 is good enough and all the other Ubuntu Samsung models would be part of the U Series.
The smartphone has an interesting UI and in case you’re wondering, the U1000 comes with pretty much the same specs as the Galaxy S4. The design is also not that different, although this model seems even straighter than the S4 compared to the S3. The Samsung Ubuntu phone has a very elegant metal stripe camera area and totally looks like an iPhone from the side.
I see that it ditches any type of front physical button, probably relying on gestures. Ubuntu Touch for mobile is already an appreciated platform, that has generated lots of enthusiasts, tweaking their Nexus devices. With the Samsung Ativ S being almost a Galaxy S III with Windows Phone, why not release a Galaxy S4 with Ubuntu or something similar?
While everyone is talking about a budget iPhone, let’s try thinking about a budget Nexus Phone. These Google devices are usually low priced, but how about lower? Cristophe Simeon took that idea into account, when he created the Motorola Nexus Plus handset. This is the same designer that brought us the stunning Samsung NxTsuper smartphone.
The device has capacitive pads at the bottom and top, with these areas being used for gaming and web surfing. Nexus Plus is built using magnesium, like the Surface tablet, while the back is machined carbon. The screen is protected by secured glass, in order to make it resilient to scratches and rough contacts.
This smartphone seems to be very thin and compact and also feels longer than any other handset I’ve seen lately. Nexus Plus measures 8.5 mm in thickness, it has an infrared port, a front 2 MP camera, a back 13 megapixel camera and a notifications capacitive pad. There’s also dual stereo speakers at the front, a Snapdragon 800 CPU inside and a 5 inch TFT LCD display with Full HD resolution. Is this good enough to be a Nexus 5?
Suman Chatterjee sent us a new Sony Xperia concept phone, a model with the quad core Snapdragon 600 CPU on board and quite an unusual design for a Sony. The device runs Android 4.2.2 and has a back area that combines the looks of a HTC with the ones of an iPhone, if you ask me.
The front is all Sony, but rather the Xperia Ray than the Xperia Z. The front camera also seems to be a too far apart from the rest of the design elements and that not so loved Xperia Z metallic On/Off button is also present here. The back camera area is very cute and elegant and stands apart in color from the rest of the back, that by the way looks curved.
Sony Xperia VZ comes with a 2.1 GHz quad core CPU, 2 GB of DDR2 RAM and 32/64 GB of storage, while the back camera is a 16 megapixel Exmor RS unit. Upfront there’s a 2.8 megapixel shooter with Exmor R and the handset comes with a removable Li-Polymer battery with a capacity of 2900 mAh. What do you make of this design?
You’re probably aware of the Apple patent that was recently filed for a curved wraparound screen on a future handset, presumably the iPhone 6. Well, T3 took the story and turned into the beautiful concept iPhone shown below, plus the video at the end of the article.
Of course, Apple does have a huge amount of patents, so they may end up not using this one, but why not let our imagination run wild? A recent patent they filed details a wraparound AMOLED screen on a smartphone and a design that looks like the fourth generation iPod Nano. The patent says that the screen can be “unrolled” or “unfolded” thanks to a special hinge-like mechanism.
The documents include facial recognition, gesture control, layering of screens to create 3D effects, all of them very cool sounding technologies. The T3 iPhone 6 concept features a resolution of 1615 x 1800 pixels, a Facetime HD 2 megapixel camera at the front, NFC, lightning connector. In the video you can see gesture controls and virtual buttons on the side, plus a new multitasking system. FIFA sure looks great on the device, as do wraparound panoramas. Will this model ever become real?
