We’ve shown you most of the iPhone 4G concepts that surfaced on the web this year and in 2008, hoping that maybe some of them will inspire Apple designers to create a great product. Now, we’ve come across two videos that gather all the concepts of the next-gen iPhone (4G) and showcase them with a pretty neat background music:
You’ll see familiar “faces”, like the iPhone nano, the iPhone Pro or the iPhone Luxe, but also newbies, like the iPhone Air, or the weird iPhone Shuffle. The transparent iPhone concept is one of the best and it has an incredible 64 GB memory, plus other specs you’ll love.
Some iPhone concepts pack 5 megapixel cameras, others come with a digital compass and some even support Flash (wow!). Here’s part 2 of the iPhone concepts video:
András Nemes has shown us an interesting Nokia 5900 concept phone before, but now it’s time to take a ride on the iPhone train and check out the Apple iPhone iSmart design. This can be considered a premiere, since it’s the first time I’ve seen the iPhone with a pair of keys like these.
iSmart comes with a 3 inch TFT display with a 352 x 416 pixels resolution, a GPS receiver, Wi-Fi, 8 or 16GB of internal memory, an accelerometer, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor. There’s also a 5 megapixel camera at the back of the handset, with autofocus and VGA video recording.
As strange as it may seem, the iPhone iSmart supports push email with MS Exchange, comes with a TV-out port, Java games and allows AppStore access for direct app download and install. A great design from András Nemes and I’m really curious to find out what you guys think about it!
You might be aware by now that Sony has goodies for us in 2009 and among those there’s a new PSP console, known as PSP Go! We have no pics or specs for this brand new device, but Breccia, a designer from the Esato board envisioned the future of the PSP series and created his own version of the Go! or PSP 2.
As you can see in the sketch, the device resembles quite a lot a Cyber-shot camera and speaking of which, this PSP 2 concept packs a 5 megapixel camera sensor. On its specs list you’ll also find stereo speakers, Bluetooth 2.1 (3.0 even?), WiFi support, 8GB of internal memory, an accelerometer and a 4.3 inch touchscreen display with a 640 x 360 pixel resolution (16:9)
Breccia also imagined that this new PSP will use OLED technology (screen) and that it’ll incorporate a microphone, a microUSB port, a 3.5mm audio jack and a battery slot. What do you say? Is this design plausible? The features sound about right, but I’m not so sure as far as the design is concerned…
Omnia is already becoming a series of Samsung handsets, now that along with Omnia i900 and Omnia HD i8910, the manufacturer is planning to release an Omnia Pro model, featuring a full QWERTY keyboard.
Since it’s Sunday and there’s no concept in sight, we show you the mockup of the future device, done by the folks of samsung.hdblog.it
Samsung Omnia Pro will also feature a wide touchscreen and it’ll hit the market in July, for about $662. It’ll run Windows Mobile 6.1 and use a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, image stabilizer and support for video recording. An upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5 should also be available and the display of the Pro is a 3.5 inch WVGA (800 x 480) touchscreen.
Adam Hutchinson is at it again and after designing the beautiful and useful iPhone Magnet concept, he upgraded it to the iPhone HD handset, you can see below. This new iPhone concept comes with a high definition screen, a full metal body, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus (at the back), a front camera and an active Home button.
The front camera is a videochat 3G one and the active Home button changes color, as a way of showing notifications. Back to Adam Hutchinson’s work, he also created a brand new iPhone nano concept, the like of which we’ve seen a lot in the past months.
Is this better looking than its predecessors?
Last, but not least, comes the iPhone Graphite concept, with the same specs as those on the iPhone HD, but with a more elegant design. Who would have imagined that the iPhone Graphite design could span such follow-ups, albeit only concepts for now?
WhiteEye from Esato hast just shown the world his superb Sony Ericsson Clementine concept, a clamshell that features an innovative format, based on “folders”, that allow the display to rotate easily. This device is also known as 3FOLDERSTYLE and it’s a mid-end handset with BRAVIA technology on board and support for DVB-H TV.
Clementine works on GSM 850/900/1800/1900, HSDPA 850/1900/2100 (up to 7.2 Mbps) networks and it packs a 2.8 inches 240 x 400 TFT display with BRAVIA RealityMAX engine.
There’s also a 1.5 inch 108 x 128 organic EL subdisplay on board (with reflective surface), plus a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with photo flash, face detection and smile shutter.
This new Sony Ericsson concept incorporates an internal antenna, for DVB-H TV reception and touch-sensitive keys for music playback and TV broadcast. The phone’s specs list also includes a Memory Stick Micro slot, a neat speaker and AccuWeather support.
See how the rotating display works and check out the high quality TV features on the handset below.
The following posters are promotional images for Sony Ericsson Clementine, the first is its English version, followed by the Chinese and Indonesian one. Great job WhiteEye!
Fancy a mid end Sony Ericsson handset, with specs that place it a tad closer to the high-end segment? Esato board user echo.shane designed such a device, the Sony Ericsson W9a concept, that you can check out below. It comes with GPS, WiFi, EDGE and UMTS support.
There’s a neat touchscreen at the front and a great 5 megapixel camera at the back, with touch focus, red eye reduction, night mode, xenon flash and video light.
A Walkman player also made the cut and a truly impressive feature is the phone’s task manager, that allows the user to access the most recent opened and closed apps, plus get info on the system (IMEI, uptime, RAM etc).
While the web is buzzing about the new iPhone, coming this summer, more and more concepts keep surfacing, feeding our need for new designs and features. Among those newcomers there’s also a design created by Adam Hutchinson and we’ll call the device “iPhone Magnet”, since its most appealing feature is a magnetometer.
This new iPhone concept comes with a 32GB internal memory, a frontal video camera, video voicemail support, a digital compass (magnetometer), realistic games (aided by the compass) and color-based notifications shown by the Home button.
Also, you should know that this original iPhone packs a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and probably video recording.
We’ve shown you echo.shane’s Sony Ericsson C825 concept phone yesterday, but today we get a chance to check out its downgraded version, the C815. This device packs a 5 megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G, touch focus and video light.
The handset lacks GPS, but it comes with a battery latch, M2 expansion and a 2.5 inch display. Other than that, its design is pretty similar to the one of the first device, except for the keypad placement and the back side.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen such a good-looking Nokia concept phone! And now, we’ve got Nokia 5900 Monoir on our hands, courtesy of designer András Nemes, who envisioned this device. The new Nokia handset packs a 3.5 inch touchscreen TFT LCD (16:9; 260 x 640 pixels) and uses Symbian S60 5th Edition.
Under the case you’ll find an ARM 11 369 MHz CPU, 1GB of SDRAM memory and a GPS receiver. Nokia 5900 Monoir also features a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, dual LED flash and VGA video recording (30 fps), plus WiFi, dual band 3G with HSDPA and quad band GSM support.
Nokia Maps 2.0 Touch is also on board and the device incorporates a microSD slot, TV out, FM radio with RDS, Bluetooth and USB 2.0. 5900 Monoir ships with an 8GB card, uses a 3.5mm audio jack, provides excellent audio quality via Dolby Mobile and uses a proximity sensor in order to turn the screen on and off automatically.
The handset’s QWERTY keyboard is an on-screen landscape virtual one and as far as gaming is concerned, you’ll be using an accelerometer sensor for automatic UI rotation and motion-based games. The specs list of the superb Nokia 5900 Monoir ends with an Office document viewer and OVI, MySpace integration.
For more info on the works of András Nemes, check out this site and know that we’re really stunned by the great design of this brand new Nokia touchscreen handset. When will it become real?!
