After this week’s HTC Nexus tablet, we stumble upon yet another design of a HTC tablet, this time a dual boot model. It has been imagined by PhoneDesigner and it looks stunning. This model runs both Windows 8 64 bit and Android and you can choose the OS you want.
The device packs a 10 inch screen with an aspect ratio of 3:2 and it also comes with a resolution of 1920 x 1440 pixels or 2560 x 1920 pixels. I’m guessing you can switch res when switching OS? Anyway, the design of the HTC Babel tablet concept borrows heavily from the HTC One, with front BoomSound speakers and all.
The tablet packs an aluminum body and it’s supposed to be a content creation tool. It support a native digitizer, has two cameras and the back one has a LED flash. The pen used in tandem with the device looks like an actual pen and it even has a special back end part like one, making me think of a special button of sorts.
Playing with Photoshop on this must be great, I imagine! The name HTC One 2 Tablet would be perfect for this device, since 2 would refer to the dual boot and One to the fact it’s their single flagship tablet.
Every time we visit Hasan Kaymak’s Google+ page we know there’s a new product design ready to hit us. This time it’s a beautiful HTC tablet, a 2015 Nexus, as described by its maker.
This model is only teased for now, so I expect that over the following week or so we’ll get a full gallery of this curved slate. This model doesn’t seem to have any edges, so I’m guessing it’s the first tablet with an edge to edge screen. I love its curved edges, that somehow give the HTC Nexus tablet a gaming vibe.
Judging by the trends at MWC 2014, this model should have a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM and Android 5.0 Liquorish or whatever its name will be. I can guess this is a 2560 x 1600 pixel screen, if not 4K even, with a 10 inch diagonal or perhaps even more. What say you, Hasan Kaymak?
Straight out of the famous XDA Developers Community comes a brand new HTC M8 mockup. This is expected to be the HTC One 2 and the designer, forum member Hamdir did a very fine job here. He took all the leaks and speculations about this model and turned them into a believable concept.
He did perform some modifications compared to the leaked pics, by leaving out capacitive buttons and replacing them with virtual ones. As you can see we’ve got a dual flash at the back and the LEDs are differently colored, like on the iPhone 5S. The general format of the HTC One 2 is pretty much the same as the one of the predecessor, only this time we get a dual back camera and the sensors are moved next to the front cam.
The dual back camera is said to use technology just like Lytro and below you can also check out a render of the HTC Sense 6.0, also done by the same designer. The icons are the same, but the signal/WiFi/battery area is now totally white and the symbols have been slimmed down a bit. Speaking of slimming, notice how the HTC M8 screen bezels are smaller than the HTC One’s…
The HTC 8X and HTC 8S were related design-wise to the HTC One design, but they had an unique vibe that HTC left behind over the past year or so. Now Giorgi Tedoradze brings that vibe back and imagines the HTC Six concept.
This is a very sleek smartphone with an unibody polycarbonate case and a nifty variety of colors. The handset is glossy, easy to use with one hand and it’s supposed to be very slim, at 6.5 mm in thickness. HTC Six weighs 105 grams, has a 4.5 inch screen with a modest 540 x 960 pixel resolution, a dual core 1.5 GHz CPU, 1 GB of RAM and the Adreno 305 GPU.
The storage goes from 16 to 128 GB and there’s a 2800 mAh Li-Ion battery inside. I love what the designer did with the box of the device, reminding me a lot of the iPhone 5C for some reason. By the way, the HTC Six concept brings a 6 Ultrapixel camera with OIS and a front 2.1 MP camera.
Imagined by Christof Gruber, the HTC smartwatch shown here is an idea that we haven’t seen before. This watch concept can be used as a smartphone. It comes in 8 colors, measures 4.7 mm in thickness and weighs 71 grams.
Its screen is a 2.5 incher with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution and inside this HTC smartwatch there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad core 1.2 GHz processor. The watch runs Android 4.4 with HTC Sense Smart 1.0, a simplified version of the already very minimalistic Sense UI. The storage is 8 GB and there’s also 1 GB of RAM and a 4 Ultrapixel camera on the bracelet.
This device does WiFi, it has a GPS and a 1200 mAh battery. The connectivity includes 3G and microUSB 3.0, plus NFC, infrared and Bluetooth. The HTC Smart watch render was done in Google Sketchup, just in case you’re wondering. Of course, this concept is not that complex, it’s more of a sketch itself…
Nikola Sokol has tried to envision the way the HTC M8 is going to look like when it debuts this month or the next. This HTC One follow-up, also known as HTC One Plus or HTC One 2014 has yet to be announced and from what we’ve heard its design will be pretty similar to the predecessor’s.
The HTC M8 is said to come with a 5 inch Full HD screen, or maybe a 2K one. It will also have Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC Sense 6.0 on top and an 8 ultrapixel camera, probably. From what I can see here, the device is much wider and so are its speakers at the top and bottom. Its screen bezel is smaller now and at the back we’ve got a fingerprint scanner below the cam.
I can’t tell if those two dots are camera flashes or if one of them is an infrared emitter like on the LG G Flex. Keep in mind this is more of a sketch than a proper concept, so don’t go criticizing it just yet. By the way, I’m also expecting a Snapdragon 805 CPU here and 2 GB of RAM or maybe even more.
Of all the HTC concepts this year, the HTC Caymac stands out, because it’s a very elaborate render. The handset should be a typical 2014 flagship, because it sports a 5.2 inch 2K display, among others.
The HTC Caymac uses an Nvidia Parker processor, which is actually the 2015 version of the Nvidia flagship CPU and it comes with HTC Sense 6.5 applied on top of Android. It’s got a dual front facing camera setup, that’s used for taking wide pictures and different perspectives and effects. This HTC concept also has a physical camera button, BoomSound speakers and 5 way Pocco Pins (whatever those are, honestly I don’t know).
There’s a 16 megapixel camera at the back with HTC Zoe support and a huge 4150 mAh battery inside. We’ve got a removable back cover here, a microSD card slot, a nano SIM card slot and probably 3 GB of RAM as well as 128 GB of storage. As you can see, the screen is an edge to edge one and the case seems metallic, which was to be expected.
One word that comes to mind when looking at this render is: finesse.
Today there was a major leak regarding the HTC M8, that’s now said to feature a dual camera and a fingerprint scanner. In the meantime we took to Google+, only to find a new render of the HTC One Plus/M8, that’s shown below.
Created by Nikolai Prettner, this render shows us the general lines of the HTC One, but this time with a camera with dual LED flash, very slim screen bezels and no physical buttons. Also no capacitive ones! The handset is a bit wider than HTC One and also it seems a tad rounder at the top and bottom.
Back to the leaks, I’ve heard that HTC One 2 may end up not being called HTC One Plus, because that name is already trademarked in USA by another company. HTC One M8 sounds like a good name, but it’s probably not going to stick. We’re looking for a decent replacement name right now. What are your suggestions? Also, what do you think about this design?
Yesterday we’ve shown you some preliminary sketches of the HTC One Plus handset made by Jermaine Smit and now we’ve got the finalized renders of the smartphone. The device is supposed to be a 5 incher or maybe even a 5.2 incher with a Full HD resolution according to rumors.
Previously known as the HTC M8 or HTC One 2, this model will have an aluminum case and a brand new flavour of blue, as pictured here. While the HTC One was a long phone, this one is a bit wider and its bezel is even smaller. I see two dark bands at the top and bottom of the HTC One Plus, making me think of BoomSound speakers, or something close to that.
I also see that the capacitive buttons have been kept, unlikely as that may seem. This model is less rounded than the predecessor, at least in Jermaine’s vision and we’ve got that plastic line above the camera to ease the antenna implementation. I see that there’s a flash under the cam and another one below and this HTC concept feels like the sort of device that sits well in the hand. Let’s hope the case is not as easy to scratch as the HTC One’s…
Apparently the HTC M8 aka HTC One is no longer called that way and it goes by HTC One+ or better said HTC One Plus. However you want to call it, the device just got rendered in a fresh view, courtesy of designer Jermaine Smit.
He claims that the handset won’t look that different from the HTC One, but a small change here and there may be possible. This is a work in progress and a mere preview of the finalized HTC One+, said the creator of the concept. The flagship of 2014 is expected to feature a 5 inch Full HD screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU and 2 GB of RAM.
It should also have a 6 or 8 Ultrapixel camera with potential dual lens and a 2900 mAh battery inside. Android KitKat with HTC Sense 6.0 are also here, as well as a microSIM card slot and even a microSD. I expect a fingerprint scanner to be included as well, maybe at the bottom. The screen looks totally edge to edge the upper area is very clean.
The second image is very well done and I love the blue metal look.
