Sony Windows Phone device, made by David Quijada, the sort of wet dream we’ve seen from the early days of Windows Phone.
The Nokia Lumia Pureview handset is seen by many as the ideal cameraphone and its rivals usually come from the Android ecosystem. Meanwhile, the older Windows Phone partners are sitting idle. Now what we get here is a
The handset seems to adopt the famous Lumia yellow and it has an elongated body with a Cybershot camera with a metallic cover in the lens area. For some reason we get a very big camera button, unless it’s a zoom button of sorts and the handset seems to be made of glossy polycarbonate. The name of the Windows Phone concept is Sony Xperia Pix and this may make sense since the first Xperias were Windows Mobile devices actually.
I’d see this long phone with a 6 inch Full HD screen, a 20 megapixel Lens G camera, Snapdragon 800 CPU and 32 GB of storage. Windows Phone 8.1 should be included here, as well as a slew of camera apps NOT made by Nokia, if possible. Can Sony deliver that cameraphone?

Everyone is talking about the Sony Xperia Z1s aka Xperia Z1 Mini aka Z1 f, but up until now we haven’t seen any trace of a real announcement coming soon. This device gets rendered today courtesy of Ben Ling.
As you can see, this model adopts the Sony Xperia Z1 design, with big edges, metallic Power button, corner placed camera and camera physical button. This model is supposed to have a 2300 mAh battery, a 4.3 inch display with 720p resolution and an impressive Snapdragon 800 CPU, which is a bit overkill for such a small handset.
There’s 2 GB of RAM inside, 16 GB of storage, a microSD card slot, plus a 20.7 megapixel camera at the back and a front 2.2 MP shooter. We’ve got Android 4.2 as the OS, NFC and probably LTE, although I wouldn’t bet on that. Seeing those specs, I would say that this Mini is stronger than any other Mini model out there, much stronger

Sony smartphone concept that’s not an Xperia. Created by Stephane Pietroiusti, who did a master class with someone from Sony, the device strays away from the Xperia design language and feels more like a Lumia to me, but an evolved one.
Finally, we’ve got a
Inspiration quoted here are a HTC phone, laser cut parts and a few metallic structures shown in the source link below. The result is a Sony concept phone with a matte and glossy surface, that seems to use a lot of metal. The front side is the one that makes me think of the first Lumias, while the back is pretty revolutionary and reminiscent of some Sony Ericsson handsets.
The device fits well in the user’s hand and integrates a comfy volume control for music player, also used to zoom in and out in the camera. The screen is large according to the designer and I’m guessing the diagonal is about 4.5 inches or 4.7 inches here. The speaker holes at the bottom and earpiece hole at the top are very discrete here, so this is basically a slab of metal with polycarbonate (probably), that fits well together, assembled in an unibody piece.

Ben Ling is back with another Sony Xperia concept and frankly speaking, it’s becoming hard to tell apart his design, since so many of them look the same. If you look closely, you’ll notice the different flash placement below the camera and a sort of metal bar at the bottom of the device.
This Sony Xperia S1 render is a more rectangular unit, with that special edges around the device that the Xperia Z1 also has. This is not a huge device, since it has a 4.6 inch HD TFT display, but the rest of the specs is pretty impressive. We’ve got a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash and HDR, plus Exmor RS sensor, 16x digital zoom and Full HD video capture.
Inside the smartphone we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 1.5 GHz CPU, a removable battery and this model is PlayStation Certified, in case you’re wondering. There’s X Reality for mobile tech on board and the handset measures 9.5 mm in thickness, packs NFC and 1.5 GB of RAM. It weighs 135 grams, runs Android 4.3.1 and offers 16 GB of storage, a camera button, microSD and a 2500 mAh battery.

Sony Xperia concepts? Well, they’re back and this time we’re dealing with a midrange model. This is the Sony Xperia L1 render, a 4.3 inch handset that features a 4.3 inch qHD TFT screen.
Missed Ben Ling’s
The phone packs an 8 megapixel camera with HDR and LED flash, an Exmor RS sensor, 16x digital zoom and Full HD video capture. There’s a front 1.3 MP camera on the Xperia L1 and a dual core Snapdragon 400 1.2 GHz processor inside, just like on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and HTC One Mini. This model is PlayStation Certified and comes with X Reality for mobile technology, the Adreno 300 GPU and NFC.
Sony Xperia L1 measures 9.3 mm in thickness, weighs 130 grams and packs 1 GB of RAM, 4G LTE connectivity, Android 4.3.1 as the OS and 8 GB of storage. it also has a microSD card slot, a camera button, a smooth back side and a new speaker design. There’s a 2100 mAh battery inside, xLOUD tech and HD voice. This sloped back makes me think of older iPads. How about you?

Xperia concepts published on this site, they’re all rectangular devices and every time I post one to Facebook it gets dozens of likes and shares. Back when this website started, in 2008, we had crazy good sci-fi concepts of Sony Ericsson devices, like the one below. This post is about things that will never happen…
If you look at the last 30 Sony
A quick look at the statistics related to this website shows that many of you are looking for a “Nokia Android phone“, although we all know that can’t happen. The closest we’ve come to it is a Nokia N9 with some heavy mods and hacks and Jelly Bean barely running on it. Still there are some good renders of such phones and even a Nexus Nokia was imagined.
Another thing that may never happen is a cool Sony Ericsson phone with an EVOLVED design. Sony keeps sticking to the same awful rectangles, with the same waterproof and dust proof thing and don’t get me started on those lids for ports! Glass was bad on Xperia Z, that creepy edge is awful on the Xperia Z1 and the Xperia Z Ultra is actually the only decent looking new model they have, but it’s too big.
What happened, folks? When did Nokia and Sony lose desire for making something beautiful?

Xperia render came up with the Sony Xperia Trail, shown below. This device is supposed to be a limited edition unit, with high end specs that include a 5 inch Triluminos display.
The same Oky Aditya who created this appealing
Said display supports a Full HD resolution, X Reality technology and 16 million colors shown. The handset is waterproof and dust proof and also resilient to scratches. Xperia Trail integrates a 20.7 megapixel camera with G Lens, Sony Exmor RS for mobile image sensor and a front 5 MP camera. There’s support for 4K video recording offered by the back camera, by the way.
Nice to see we have a special corner of the device dedicated to hanging lanyards or stuff like that. Also, I see that the camera has been moved from the corner to the center of the upper back and that the volume buttons and camera button on the side are quite unusually designed. Other than that this model feels very much like Xperia Z and the Z1…

Sony Xperia concept, a model called Xperia Haze. The handset features a bunch of modern features that will become standard over the following years, such as the Xperia fingerprint security and eye scanner security.
From Oky Aditya comes a brand new
The device is so secure, that it even features a third authentication method, via an NFC security lock. Sony Xperia Haze packs an Nvidia GeForce graphics accelerator (GTX300 for mobile) and inside the phone we find the Sony XposeD quad core CPU at 2.7 GHz. The phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat and has an Xperia last projector keyboard, plus a 20.7 MP back camera with G Lens.
Upfront there’s a 5 inch Full HD Triluminos display with X Reality tech and by the way, this smartphone is both dust and water resistant, something usual for Sony. There’s a crazy 8 GB of RAM inside and 128 GB of storage. Finally, we’ve got a Li-Ion 5000 mAh battery with a cooling system and support for 4K video recording.
As if this wasn’t enough, you can even upgrade the handset’s hardware via a special Xperia Ware Improve centre. How cool is this?

After the Xperia Z1, a new road for naming patterns of Sony Xperia handsets has been opened and Ben Ling is quick to follow it with a fresh concept. Meet the Sony Xperia T1, pictured below and adopting the pretty much standard
We’re dealing with a 4.7 inch handset with a 16 megapixel FHD camera with Sony G Lens and a 1/2.8 inch Exmor RS sensor. The screen uses X Reality technology and Dragontrail glass, plus it supports multitouch for up to 10 fingers and offers a 469 ppi pixel density, way more than the human eye can see.
Apparently there’s a new type of flash available, a CRI LED, whatever that is. Specs include BIONZ for mobile technology, a quad core Snapdragon 800 CPU, 16 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a 3100 mAh battery. We also get Android 4.3.1 and PlayStation certification, as well as NFC, HD voice and a case that measures 8.7 mm in thickness.
The Sony Xperia T1 concept weighs 155 grams and it has a removable battery, in case you’re wondering.

Sony Xperia Edge concept phone is a powerhouse with 8 GB of RAM, way too much for merely running Android 4.4 KitKat. The device is a 5 inch handset with certification for water, dust and scratch resilience.

Inside it we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 futuristic CPU, a quad core 2.7 GHz processor with Krait 500 cores. The GPU is a GeForce GTX 300 for mobile, which is a bit strange, since Nvidia would never let Qualcomm borrow their tech. We’ve got the full array of sensors here, 128 GB of storage included and Bluetooth 4.0 on board as well.
There’s NFC, USB on the go, MHL, a 20.7 megapixel camera on board with 1/2.3 inch sensor and a 5 MP front cam. The battery on the Xperia Edge is a giant, a 5000 mAh unit, even bigger than the one of a Nexus 7. I find it hard to believe you can fit such a brick inside a phone without making it huge.
Finally, the handset has a special Xperia fingerprint security system and wireless charging support.
