Bob Freking is right when he claims that although lately we’ve seen a lot of Samsung, Nokia and LG concepts, Motorola hasn’t been approached by many designers. Now he thought to combine the Atrix, Droid and RAZR series and gave us the Motorola Zark concept phone, pictured below.
It has the power of a Droid, the fingerprint scanner of the Atrix and the RAZR’s body, at least partially. Bob is right when he says that Motorola should offer a quad core handset by now. LG has one, HTC has one and Samsung has one… Sony and Motorola are the big names lacking from the quad core smartphone list. One thing’s for sure: Moto is not holding out for quad core Windows Phone, which is an amusing idea. They may be keeping their secret quad core CPU for a Nexus Motorola phone, who know?
Back to the concept here, the Motorola Zark features a HD display, 2GB of RAM and a quad core processor. This handset will also have a white version, that will look badass. Will Moto be able to deliver such a device in the near future or do we have to wait for Android Key Lime Pie?
Bob Freking imagined the future Motorola flagship and wants to step away from the already familiar RAZR brand, so he created something new. Meet the Motorola CRBN, a new concept, that’s supposed to be a fresh flagship. As Samsung has the Galaxy to rely on, the LG with the Optimus and Sony the Xperia, the CRBN line may become Motorola’s rise to power.
Bob says that the Droid series from Motorola lost hype and power and RAZR as well, so they need something new. This is where CRBN comes in and apparently it will also have a QWERTY version. The CRBN packs a 4.8 inch HD screen, but the designer says that he actually wants a 1600 x 900 resolution, since LG already made a 1080p display on a 5 inch format, so it’s doable. The shape of the new Motorola concept phone is a bit futuristic and it features on the screen the classic Droid logo, but in blue.
This smartphone is 7.5mm thin, features a 13 megapixel camera and 2160p video recording. It should run on an OMAP 5 ARM15 dual core processor and Bob wants Motorola to bring back the “Droid Does” slogan and push marketing at least as hard as MS and Nokia did with the Lumia series. Speaking of Lumia, this device looks a bit like the Nokia N9/Lumia 800, but only a bit. The designer also expects a new Motoblur interface to make its way to this device. What do you say? Is this realistic?
Bob Freking just send me an email of a device he calls the Motorola Atrix 3, a phone render that looks more like a live picture of a smartphone. The Atrix was the model that brought the dual core trend to the USA and also that nifty lapdock accessory that everyone loved. The Atrix 2 was launched without too much fuss and now Bob feels that the Atrix 3 should get a bigger hype.
He imagined a monster of a phone, with the Motorola Atrix 3 using a quad core Tegra 3 processor, a finger print scanner, face unlock and support for “powerful docks and keyboards”. The handset comes with 2 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera, a 4.3 inch 720p display and a very thin chassis. There’s also a 3300 mAh battery, that should give it enough juice to draw a comparison to the longevity of the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX. So, what do you say? Is there room for an Atrix 3 in the USA?
I have a hard time believing that Moto would actually use a quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU, as I imagine they would rely on a TI OMAP solution or maybe even a Snapdragon.
Created by Kirill Krymov, working with some designer students in USA and Motorola designers in Korea, the following concept shows us a Motorola phone without keys and relying on touch input and gestures. The Moto Play is basically a full touch rectangle, with two movable parts at the back, that look as if joysticks were set apart from the handset.
These moving parts uncover a camera and other features of the Motorola Play include the ability to charge via wireless, just by placing the phone on a charging base. The device uses a 7 megapixel camera that takes quick snaps and this photo sensor is hidden behind two sliding parts, that can be used as joysticks in the gaming experience and as controls for the camera. The left joystick is used for zooming, while the right one is used for taking pictures (shutter button).
This looks like a very interesting Motorola concept phone, one that would fit youngsters, teens and people with an active lifestyle. I’m not sure if the slider parts make it more fragile or not and if they won’t wear out during a long period of use…
Since Motorola brought back the RAZR series to the modern Android age, why not do the same with the ROKR? Thus, we meet the Motorola Droid ROKR, a device that’s shown below and a concept that was created by Bob Freking. The handset comes in 64GB and 128GB versions, so it provides enough storage for people obsessed with getting all the discographies they need.
Droid ROKR comes with a dual core TI OMAP processor at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM and with an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture, plus a front 3 megapixel camera. The specs sound very much like the ones of the Motorola Droid RAZR, albeit with a music twist. There’s also a special Android 4.0 UI that focuses on music, according to the designer. Built in auto tone and music mixers are also included, for wannabe rappers and DJs.
HD Music is provided via headphones and recording is done in clear and sharp audio. Also, I forgot to mention the 3.7 inch 720p display, that’s an incredible resolution for such a small diagonal. Of course, this is the ultimate music phone, making us forget about the HTC models with Beats Audio or the Walkman series from Sony Ericsson…
Ok, so I have an inside source saying that the next Google Nexus phone will be made by Motorola and it will be called Motorola Nexus RAZR… I imagine that the design of the device will look something like the smartphone below, a Motorola concept made by Michael Williams, from San Francisco.
Since the new Nexus will be a RAZR I’m expecting a crazy thin waistline, maybe even below 7mm. Also, this design with sharp edges is kind of nice and it has a Droid feeling to it, one that suits the new generation of Android experience. I’m expecting a 4.5 inch display here, a 720p one obviously and a quad core processor inside the handset.
The combo between red and black colors when it comes to the case is a good idea, as the HTC Sensation XE has shown us.. Not so sure about those capacitive buttons, considering that Ice Cream Sandwich includes its own on-screen keys for use with the OS navigation. If you combine what we already know about the future of Motorola with Michael’s design, we get an interesting picture of the future. The only mystery here is the camera, but I’m guessing 12MP, 1080p 60 fps video capture or close to it…
The designs of Gregory Pizzatto have been hosted before on our website and yet another fresh one is here for you to comment on. This time it’s a Motorola concept phone posted on Coroflot a couple of days ago and just as a coincidence we’re only 2 days away from the announcement of the Motorola Droid RAZR.
There’s already a teaser and leaked pics for the new RAZR, that’s expected to be incredibly thin and run Android Ice Cream Sandwich. As far as this concept is concerned, it looks like an Android model with maybe a 4 or 4.3 inch display, a 14 megapixel camera (if my eye sight is good) and a comfortable to hold back.
Maybe it’s that kevlar back we’ve been hearing so much about, that will probably make it to the next Motorola Droid device or maybe the next Motorola Xoom tablet. From this picture I can’t tell how thick the phone is, but give it anything below 8.5mm and it’s certainly a RAZR and a competitor for the Galaxy S II’s thickness. What do you think?
With the folks of Pocketnow recently uncovering proof that there’s a Motorola Droid RAZR out there, I can’t do anything but welcome back this ultraslim series of handsets from Moto. Thus, the concept below made by Deviantart member djeric looks more modern than ever.
This is a piece of work from 2009 so it’s all the more impressive. If a new RAZR would launch today, it would have to be about 7mm thick to make a difference, incorporate a beautiful design, maybe glossy, maybe matte, depending on what the current trend on the market is. I would also include a dual core 1.5GHz CPU on it and Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
To make a difference, I would create a RAZR UI especially for this unit, but one that doesn’t use elements from the not so lovely MOTOBLUR, that I didn’t like. All in all, this should be a fashion statement, even if a pricey one, but it wouldn’t matter much, since Moto is good at this glamour stuff, like they did with the AURA model… can they do a repeat?
How about a Motorola phone that aside from making and receiving calls is able to check up on your health? Dubbed the Motoworkr, this handset concept was designed by Marco Vanella and it also provides tips for first aid during emergencies.
This is a device meant for people working in health care and medical facilities. Motoworkr integrates a Bluetooth thermometer and tensiometro port and it can even read digital medical cards. The device can transfer patient health records to PCs and other gadgets. Is this more suited than a medical tablet?
We knew that Motorola was readying a dual core smartphone, but what about a design to show off the device? DaQuan Freeman mailed us some pretty interesting sketches, showing a Motorola Android concept phone, with great specifications, available after the break.
This device integrates an AMOLED 4.78 inch capacitive touchscreen display with multitouch, an 8 megapixel camera with Dual LED flash and 720p HD video capture at 30 fps and NVIDIA’s Tegra 250 CPU. Powering the unit is a Dual-Core ARM A9 processor and we learn that the handset’s display is scratch-resistant, plus there’s a front facing camera and stereo speakers incorporated.
