Since we have a new Facebook Phone out there, the HTC First, why not come up with the Facebook Tablet? Suman Chatterjee thought of one and called it the HTC First Tab. After all, HTC has been out of the tablet business for a while now, so they may as well get into it with a touch of social networking.
The device sports the same capacitive buttons as the HTC First at the bottom of the display and obviously adopts Facebook Home as the overlay on top of Android. It packs a 10 inch display, most likely a Full HD one, accompanied by what is probably a Snapdragon 600 or 400 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage.
There’s also probably a cool camera at the back, although I would rather offer a tiny little camera accessory that can take pictures independently and then slide into the tablet and upload them to Facebook. Sort of like a little PadFone… What do you make of this idea?
We like Bob Freking’s concept phones, because most times they also brings videos associated to pictures. Bob did the most interesting thing ever: instead of imagining the Nexus 5 or Nexus 6, he just rethought the Nexus 4 and gave it a HTC One treatment.
The device obviously runs stock Android, it’s supper thin, it has a 5 ultrapixel camera and it’s made by HTC. “Amazing speakers” are promised, as well as dual LED flash, so I expect the HTC One camera to be surpassed here, as well as the BoomSound speakers. The designer even mentions a price: $299, for the unlocked 32 GB version.
It seems to me that this model is slightly wider than the HTC One and its profile looks a bit different, maybe with a different integration of the metal plate and metal sides. The polycarbonate lines at the bottom and bottom are here and the camera lens seems even bigger this time. The Android buttons are virtual instead of physical and there’s 3 of them, not the two capacitive ones of the HTC One.
Just a couple of days ago, the HTC First Facebook Phone started selling in shops and a new era of social devices started. We did have a bunch of Facebook phones previously, like the HTC Salsa or ChaCha. Well, why not start dreaming of other social handsets, like the Google+ phone or even the Instagram phone.
Deviantart member raintomista imagined the HTC Second Instagram concept phone, that allows you to see a stream of photos from friends on a homescreen that will be refreshed automatically. HTC Second will always allow you to stay connected with friends, see their pics and interact with them. I guess that HTC Second could be priced even lower than the HTC First, so lower than $99.
Also, in order to run Instagram and its associated services, I guess that the specs won’t have to be too high end. Maybe a dual core Qualcomm CPU could work, or even a high power Intel processor, although I’m not sure how well it will manage battery consumption on the device. The display resolution would have to be HD, to see those Instagram-fied pics in all their splendor.
After the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Nexus 5 is the most rendered phone in 2013, I’ll give you that much. Each and every designer is having a go, putting brands like LG, HTC, Sony, Samsung or others attached to the Nexus 5 project. Today Suman Chatterjee gives this idea a spin and created the new Nexus by HTC.
The result is a 4.9 inch Full HD smartphone with a Snapdragon 800 quad core 2.3 GHz processor and Android Key Lime Pie as the OS. Nexus 5 has 3 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of storage, a 16 megapixel camera with autofocus and a 3 megapixel front camera. We’ve also got a Li-Polymer battery, that’s removable and offers a 2800 mAh capacity.
The design seems greatly inspired by the HTC, although the two capacity buttons are replaced by 2 virtual ones and there’s an interesting app selection in the middle of the screen. The display also seems to have even smaller bezels than on the HTC One…
It’s been a while since we’ve shown you Hasan Kaymak’s work and today we give you the HTC One Tab 10. This is a 10 inch tablet, inspired by the design of the HTC One and packing some very interesting software features.
It has HTC Sense 5.0 with BlinkFeed, while at the back there’s an 8 ultrapixel camera with LED flash and HTC Zoe. There’s also Beats Audio and 4 point speakers for an excellent audio experience, that may even entertain a full blown party. At the front we’ve got a 2 megapixel camera and the body of the device is all aluminum.
HTC One Tab 10 supports 4G LTE and relies on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 for processing power. The HTC concept table has a nano SIM card slot, a microSD, HTC Stay (just like Smart Stay by Samsung) and HTC Online. The latter is an unlock method that recognizes the user once he gets his hands on the device. There’s also a feature called HTC GestureCamera, allowing you to record professional videos.
Frankly speaking, this is the sort of device that may actually be worth $1000…
D. Saif sent us a render he did of the upcoming Google Nexus 5 phone, that he imagined as a common project of the biggest companies in the Android biz. Sharp, LG, HTC, Sony and Motorola joined hands for this, supposedly. The result is a super smartphone that runs Android 5.0 and is pictured below.
The Nexus 5 features an Ultra HD display, an Ultrapixel camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 256 GB of storage. There’s also 4 GB of RAM on board and a huge 5000 mAh battery. The screen is made by LG and Sharp together and it’s a 5 inch 720p, or a 5.5 inch 1080p display or finally a 4K 6 inch one. Each aspect of the specs is customizable according to D. Saif.
Thus, you can go with either an 8 ultrapixel or 16 ultrapixel camera and with 64/128/256 GB of storage. There’s also a version with 2 GB of RAM and one with 4 GB. Finally, there’s a model with a 3000 mAh battery and one with a 5000 mAh battery. As far as design goes, this Nexus 5 is all display, with minuscule bezels. What do you think?
Hasan Kaymak, the person responsible with the HTC Concepts Facebook page sent us another one of his creations, a HTC concept tablet. The new model is called HTC One Tab 7 and by the way, the designer has a new page, a Google+ one called Hasan Kaymak Innovations.
You should know that Hasan has created many of the latest HTC renders we’ve published on this site. Back to the tablet, the HTC One Tab 7 draws its inspiration from the HTC One handset and it comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, a 7 inch Full HD SLCD 3 display and HTC Sense 5.0 UI with BlinkFeed and HTC Zoe. There’s also Beats Audio, very loud speakers and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as the OS.
4G LTE, WiFi and a battery with 10 hours of functioning time round up the specs list. We also get an 8 ultrapixel camera with LED flash and a nano SIM and microSD card slot. This would instantly become the tablet with the best camera and also with the most interesting interface. Considering all these technologies, it would also cost quite a bundle…
Shaik Imaduddin sent us a brand new HTC concept phone, the HTC One Hundred, that can be seen as a slight upgrade of the HTC One. We’re dealing with a 5 inch smartphone with a 1080p screen and an 8 megapixel Ultrapixel back camera.
There’s also a 2 MP shooter at the front and a Snapdragon 800 CPU inside, as well as 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The form factor of the HTC One is a big changed, as the whole device seems to have smaller bezels and the upper and lower speakers are even more discrete. The device probably has the same metallic case and only uses two capacitive buttons instead of one.
The HTC One Hundred concept may be MWC 2014 material, provided that HTC makes it well after 2013. 2012 and 2011 were shaky years for HTC, with their latest models being troubled by initial problems and very late Android updates. Will they achieve success with the HTC One?
Mohammad Mahdi Azimi has become a regular on our site, since the designer has created quite a few interesting designs lately. The latest work involves the HTC One Tab, a slate inspired by the HTC One phone, announced exactly one week ago.
It reminds me a bit of the proportion of the HTC Flyer, but the back is totally HTC One, with Beats Audio also on board. As you can see, the two BoomSound speakers from the top and bottom of the handset have been moved to the sides of the tablet, but you can also see them as on the top/bottom, if you hold the tablet in landscape mode, which you probably will.
There’s also a front camera here, a main back camera without flash, that’s probably a 5 or 8 MP unit. I expect a kickass audio experience out of this model and the Snapdragon 600 CPU inside, plus 2 GB of RAM and at least 32 GB of storage. The design would be unibody, with an aluminum case and HTC Sense 5.0 in a slightly modified version to fit a tablet. Fancy the HTC One Tab as the future HTC tablet or will that dream never come to life?
It’s been a while since the prolific Bob Freking designed something for us, but luckily he’s back, with a very interesting concept: the HTC Nexus One 2013. Those of you who remember Android history, may know that the first Google Nexus phone was the HTC One and now we’ve got another… One.
HTC Nexus One features a 1.8 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, a Full HD Super LCD 3 screen and an 8 megapixel Ultrapixel camera. It also adopts an all aluminum unibody case and runs Android Key Lime Pie. Bob also informed us that according to Wall Street Journal Google is feeling threatened by Samsung, that has become way too attached to Android and they have a huge market share, so they won’t leave the next Nexus phone to them.
It could go to either Motorola or HTC, but if you ask me Sony is also in the books. As you can see, this device borrows a bit from the HTC One, a bit from the One X and a bit from the LG Nexus 4. I like the rounded form factor, a bit more rounded than the HTC One and I imagine that the back has a soft touch material. Is a Nexus 2013 phone made by HTC possible?
