People, we’re in 2013! Designers, wake up and check out the calendar! Can you honestly say that you like ANY of the LG Optimus series devices?! Can you honestly say that the Galaxy S4 has a good design? Isn’t the Nokia Lumia already outdated? Aren’t all the Xperias 99% alike? Well, here’s finally some novelty: Sony XTRUD.
Sony XTRUD is to me what Apple could have come up if they kept their wild spirit of the early 2000s… Designer Rybarczyk Francois did a fantastic job with this smartphone and he deserves a standing ovation for it. The Sony XTRUD concept features a sustainable and economic vision of the modern world. The handset incorporates one part that includes all the components and a simple aluminum profile.
The idea is to easily replace all components via a modular concept. You can change the camera module with the newest Sony cam, but let’s be honest here: phone makers are afraid of such devices, because they wouldn’t sell their new models, that’s why we’ll never see such a phone. The Sony XTRUD feels a bit like a combo between a Nokia Lumia and an iPod, with a twist of the designer’s unique approach.
A nifty idea is the volume control by rotating the wheel at the lower area of the device. The result here is a beautiful and original Sony Android concept, that actually looks hot and will last for many years thanks to the modular approach.

Victor Cao offers us a new vision on the Walkman series of music phones, giving them the Xperia branding and a new look. The new device pictured here is the Sony Xperia W concept, that has an iPhone-ish back side.
The handset uses virtual buttons on Android and the typical Walkman player with minimalistic options. This Walkman smartphone has all the best acoustic technologies one can get nowadays: Clear Bass, Clear Audio and S Master MX. Specs of the Xperia Walkman W include a 1.7 GHz quad core CPU, probably the Snapdragon 400 or 600 and 2 GB of RAM, as well as NFC and maybe 32 GB of storage.
The concept Xperia measures 9 mm in thickness and seems to bundle a pair of sexy headphones. The front side of the Xperia W is to me a combo between the latest Xperia designs and the Samsung Omnia 7 for some reason. By the way, the display incorporated here is a 4.6 inch Triluminos HD display, probably with Full HD res. Is the Walkman back yet?

Triluminos display technology and this tech was already spotted on a recent Sony Vaio Duo device unveiled at Computex 2013.
The Sony Xperia UX is a concept created by Ben Ling and its specs sound like 2014 midrange material. The handset packs a 4.3 inch HD screen with
The Xperia UX uses Gorilla Glass 3 technology with shatter proof abilities, a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash and HDR and also an Exmors RS sensor for mobile. There’s dust and water proofing and the back camera does 16x digital zoom. This Xperia concept also incorporates a 2.2 MP front camera with HDR and 1080p capture, a quad core Snapdragon 400 CPU and a removable battery.
It has PlayStation certification, uses an Adreno 305 GPU and all of that is crammed inside a 7.5 mm thick shell. The phone weighs 125 grams, packs in 2 GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. We’ve also got Sony Mobile Bravia Engine 2 technology, glove input support, Sony White Magic technology, xLOUD experience and a Li-Ion 2500 mAh battery.
What do you think? Will MediaTek’s quad core CPU be a popular option for future midranges or the Snapdragon 400?

Xperia Nexus phone concept may be an usual rectangle, but it’s the specs that interest us the most. This device runs Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie and uses Gorilla Glass 3 technology on its screen.
Sent to us by Tomas K, this Sony
It comes with a polycarbonate body, a 13 megapixel camera with optical stabilization and it packs a Full HD IPS 5 inch display. Sony Xperia Nexus, in this version measures 6.5 mm in thickness, weighs 132 grams and does Full HD 60 FPS video capture with the aid of its 13 MP camera, with autofocus and LED Flash.
Upfront we’ve got a 2.1 megapixel camera and other specs include a 64 GB internal memory, 2 GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 1.7 GHz processor with Adreno 320 GPU. The design isn’t particularly different from everything that’s on the market right, just a rectangular slab of plastic/metal/maybe glass.

Sony Xperia concepts, you may want to have a look at the Sony Xperia F, pictured below. Created by Martin Grauer, this device is based on a big glass slab with two metal/plastic parts that serve as bezels and components holders.
If you’re not tired of
I suspect that the handset is actually a normal one and not a transparent unit, although transparency would be cool as well. Anyway, the Xperia F is incredibly slim, probably at around 5 or 6 mm in thickness, it has a big glassy slab in the middle or maybe it’s made to look that way by covering up the edges with glass and also the front.
I can’t see any side volume buttons, so I guess it’s all touch, while the On/Off button has been kept a metallic one and integrated into the upper side. This model truly sticks to the idea of edge to edge screen and doesn’t give us a side bezel to hold the handset. I can also spot a front camera and that’s pretty much it. What do you make of this interesting Sony Xperia futuristic design?

Honami is the model that’s supposed to start the One Sony trend of incorporating all cool Sony tech into a single device. Well, that means you get Bravia, Cybershot, Walkman, xLOUD, Exmor RS and all the other goodies one can imagine. And now Honami turns into the Sony Xperia i1.
Created by Ben Ling, this smartphone concept features a 5 inch Full HD Triluminous display that’s shatter proof. There’s Gorrilla Glass 3 protection aplied to it and at the back we’ve got a 20 megapixel camera with Xenon and LED flash. There’s Carl Zeiss and Cybershot technology involved in the camera area and you get HDR for both the front and back cam.
16x digital zooming is supported and we get a quad core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, BIONZ mobile technology, built in battery and Adreno 330 GPU. The case here is 7.5 mm thick and the whole device weighs 135 grams. Xperia i1 offers 3 GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity, NFC and runs on a 3000 mAh. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is the OS of choice. The back side of the device looks more like a camera, if you ask me…

Suman Chatterjee imagined the Sony Xperia Tab L, a brand new tablet concept shown in white. As far as I can see, the device has a metallic Power button like the Xperia Z. And now allow me to speculate on this product…
The Xperia Tab L is a rectangular slab of plastic, metal and glass, overall with a very nice look. I seem to have spotted a lighted glass area around the slate, maybe like the Xperia S, but this one lights up in colors. Specs here may include a powerful Snapdragon 800 processor, a 13 megapixel camera, 2 GB of RAM or maybe even 3 GB of RAM.
There’s also 32/64 GB of storage, 4G LTE connectivity, NFC (front and back) and gesture support thanks to the front camera. Since this is a powerful tablet, Sony Xperia Tab L is good enough to run Android 4.3 and even Key Lime Pie. What do you think of this Xperia tablet concept?

Sony Xperia Honami handset, but today we also get a concept, courtesy of Sanjaya Kanishka. We’re dealing with a model that has been rumored lately together with Sony Xperia Togari, as part of the new One Sony direction.
Over the past days I’ve seen quite a few leaks of the
These are devices that will bring together under the same wing all cool Sony technologies, from Cybershot to Walkman, Bravia and Xperia, maybe even PlayStation. While the Xperia Togari is expected to be a 6.4 inch phablet and it remains a mystery, the Xperia Honami is pictured here and specced by the designer mentioned before. The front side of the device is covered by Sapphire glass and the cover involves aluminum oxide compounds, for ultra toughness and scratch resistance.
At the bottom we’ve got a long grille for liquid magnetic speakers. Honami is quite similar to the Xperia XL, in that it covers a large amount of the facade with the display. We get a 5 inch edge to edge 1080p Triluminous display here and specs also include a 16.2 megapixel Exmor RS camera, with Sony G lens and Cybershot technology, plus Xenon flash. Also on board is a quad core Snapdragon 800 2.3 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, microSD, HDMI and a 2930 mAh battery. More details in the source link below!

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.
Suman Chatterjee sent us a new
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?

Sony Xperia concept phone, one packing a 5 inch Full HD display, but looking more like an Xperia Mini, if I take a quick glance at the renders. For some reason I feel that the diagonal should be smaller, maybe because of those big bezels.
Ben Ling sent us yet another
The Sony Xperia UL, that’s the name of the concept, comes with a Super AMOLED display, which is rare for Sony, who relies on TFT or other technologies. There’s also Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, a 14 megapixel camera with HDR and LED flash, Exmor RS sensor for mobile and a case that’s both dust and water resistant.
The camera at the back does 16x zoom and Full HD video capture, while upfront there’s a 3 megapixel HDR camera with 1080p capture. Inside the handset there’s a quad core 1.8 GHz Krait 300 processor, of the Snapdragon 600 kind. Sony Xperia UL comes with PlayStation certification, a removable batery, 2 GB of RAM, 4G LTE, Android 4.2.2 and 32 GB of storage.
It uses a 2800 mAh battery, a microSD card slot and Sony Mobile Bravia Engine 3 technology. How about it? Does the handset also seem smaller to you?
