We have seen some lovely Nokia concept phones before, created by the same Jonas Daehnert and now here’s a fresh one. The Nokia Lumia 1001 is even more beautiful than the freshly launched Lumia 920 and 820 and it brings an air of elegance and finesse to the series. The new Lumias are bulky, massive and heavy, but this one seems slimmer.
I particularly like the lower side of the handset, that somehow seems a bit Apple-inspired to me, if I think about the iPhone 5 renders I’ve seen lately, which is a good thing. Under the display that I dare to speculate is a 4.5 inch HD unit, we find 3 capacitive buttons and on the side we find the buttons with a changed look. Gone are those faux metal buttons and here are some faux rubber ones, if I may say so. I can’t seem to spot a camera button, while at the top there’s a mystery tray, that’s actually prety big, big enough to host both the SIM and microSD together.
This is a fantastic design and the choice of color, that brown-gray is interesting. IF you look closely you’ll see that the top part is a bit sloped downwards, which is also a nice touch. I seem to spot a tiny LED next to the audio jack, also a nifty addition. And the front camera is more discrete than ever. And now some speculated specs: 4G LTE, dual core or quad core Snapdragon S4 CPU, 32 GB of storage, 1 GB of RAM, 12 megapixel PureView camera and 1280 x 768 pixel resolution. Too bad we can’t see this baby’s back!
You know Edgar Mkrtchyan from the latest Nokia concepts he created and showed us and now he goes back to the Nokia Lumia 720 and redoes it in the form of a very lovely mockup, shown below. The updated Lumia 720 has basically the same design lines, the same curves, but the handset is now thicker, as it has a bigger battery.
It also has an audio jack and microUSB port, bigger speakers and bigger volume sliders and unlock slider. There’s also a secondary functionality for the slider button, that makes the device mute when pushed. Nokia Lumia 720 now has a PureView camera, an 18 megapixel sensor with 1080p video recording, flash Xenon and LED flash as well. There’s a black magnesium lid in the mix, available in cyan and white, too. I guess that the rest of the specs stay unchanged, including the microSIM card slot, microSD card slot, DLNA and the dual core 1.6 GHz processor.
Storage versions are probably 16/32GB as well as one the first Nokia Lumia 720 concept and Windows Phone 8 is definitely the OS. I wonder if the 4.3 inch 1280 x 768 pixel display is still there, but since Edgar didn’t say anything, I guess it’s still the same. Kudos Edgar for this brilliant design!
Well, it seems that Edgar Mkrtchyan is becoming a household name, when it comes to fresh Nokia concept phones. Today he shows us the luxury handset Nokia Louis Vuitton Edition, with Windows Phone 8 on board. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a luxury Nokia phone and something to emulate the elegance of the older L’amour series, so this could be it.
We’re dealing with a Windows Phone 8 device with some minor Louis Vuitton customization when it comes to software. The design of the Nokia concept involves a curved big screen, surrounded with pure gold and the rear area made of polycarbonate, printed in the famous Louis Vuitton pattern. The logo “Nokia Louis Vuitton” is printed in gold as well and protected by two large bumps that make it avoid the contact between gold and the table. Inside there’s a dual core 1.7 GHz processor and upfront we’ve got a 4.5 inch AMOLED ClearBlack display with a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution and Gorilla Glass protection.
At the back there’s a 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens, Xenon flash and 1080p video capture. Nokia Louis Vuitton also has a front 3.2MP shooter, a 2200 mAh battery, 64GB of storage, microUSB, NFC and Bluetooth. To me this like a Nokia Lumia 710 that has been dipped in gold, cut into a thinner form and given the gift of elegance + a bigger screen and CPU. What do you think?
Over the past days Edgar Mkrtchyan has been present on our website with some very interesting Nokia designs. We saw a handset with a rotating camera and much more and now we get to see the Nokia 707 concept, created by the same artist. The device is kind of shaped like a figure of 8 and resembles a race car when seen from above.
The device runs Windows Phone 8 and it’s wider at the bottom and lower part and narrower at the middle, so it’s got the whole hourglass form factor going on. Nokia 707 also has a large curved screen, back shell made of aluminum, that’s replaceable and available in different colours like black, fuchsia, cyan and white. Inside there’s a dual core 1.5 GHz processor and upfront we’ve got a 4 inch AMOLED ClearBlack display with a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution and Gorilla Glass protection. At the back there’s an 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens, double LED flash and 1080p video recording.
At the front we find a 2 megapixel camera and other specs include a 1800 mAh battery, 16/32/64 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and microUSB, NFC, Bluetooth connectivity. This glossy piece of work looks like a race car from above and from the profile like a futuristic gadget and I truly like the hourglass shape it has. It’s very ergonomic and allows you to squeeze the device better.
Bob Freking is back with a fresh design, the one of the Nokia Clarity handset, the first Windows Phone 8 concept since the announcement of the OS this week. The phone combines Metro UI with the latest OS features and a PureView camera. As you can see, we those smaller tiles included in the Metro UI, plus a clearer interface and apparently some way to make the UI transparent.
The phone is a pretty long and wide one, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it were a 4.7 inch unit. It’s also pretty rounded at the corners and I guess that its screen is a 720p unit. Inside there should be a dual core Qualcomm CPU, unless it’s a quad core, for that extra processing power needs of the PureView camera. Nokia Clarity also supports LTE connectivity, has a 20+ megapixel camera with PureView tech, 64GB of storage, a 2MP front camera, NFC and a 2500 mAh battery.
These are all my speculations that follow the design of Bob Freking, so feel free to take them as a figment of my imagination. I think that this design is pretty good since it manages to deliver a rectangular phone with great width, rounded corners, crisp display and PureView camera, plus WP8 on board. How much would you pay for it?
If you’ve been following the tech news today, you probably know that Microsoft unveiled Windows Phone 8 and some of its features today. There was no new phone to showcase, aside from a prototype or two. However, the same Deviantart user who created this beautiful Microsoft tablet, Alextc1, now brings us a very nice and glossy Nokia Lumia concept.
This looks like a much thinner Nokia Lumia 800/900 with a special area for the Windows Phone buttons below the screen. That area reminds me of the similar design feature on Nokia Lumia 710, although it’s more separated from the screen area here. With such a look, this phone is probably very thing, maybe at 7-8mm in thickness. It has a camera button, On/Off button and volume buttons, all on the same side. With all those capacitive button-based phones out there, it’s good to see that physical keys still exist.
Add Windows Phone 8 in the mix here, 64GB of storage, a 12 megapixel PureView camera, LTE, a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU and you’ve got the phone of the year right here! Would see this Nokia Windows Phone 8 concept turned real in stores this year?
And here we are with a brand new Nokia Windows Phone concept, the Lumia Evolution, that seems to feature a camera with a dual flash. This is a Windows Phone 8 Apollo model with a pretty thin waistline and somehow it reminds me a bit of the Nokia Lumia 710, although I hope it swapped its plastic back for metal.
The interesting bit is the lower side where the speaker is and the cute little audio jack with teh rounded segment around it. Also, notice how the Home button with the Windows symbol has evolved. As far as the hardware of the Nokia Lumia Evolution goes, we have here a 4.5 inch HD screen, 64 GB of internal memory and most likely a dual core CPU made by Qualcomm. Intel could also be part of this initiative, but I’m not sure they’ll be ready with a good enough CPU to use on a phone meant to sell millions of units.
AT the back I expect something like a 12MP camera with PureView technology, maybe some 4G LTE, NFC and the latest in Bluetooth and WiFi tech. This concept looks pretty realistic and it’s finally a break from all those Nokia N9 copycats… Do you like it? This concept was created by Deviantart user LokiBartleby.
Brian Bovi, the designer of the Xperia Pop Windows Phone model is now back with a Lumia concept. The designer is from Luxembourg and this time he envisioned the Nokia Lumia 850, based on nothing else than his own imagination. Brian wanted to create a successor the Nokia Lumia 800 and the result can be seen in the pictures below.
We’re dealing here with a 3.8 inch smartphone with a high res display, curved glass, plastic body and an 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens. This model also has a stereo speaker system and the shape of the Nokia Lumia 850 is described as “edgeless” by the designer. As you can see, this phone supports LTE connectivity and I’d imagine it in the portofolio of AT&T in the USA. It’s a pretty wide device that tries to keep all the physical buttons on a single side, the right one.
You can find the volume buttons, On/OFF button and camera button on that side. At the top we have what looks like the microSIM card slot, if I’m not mistaking. I like the form factor of this device and this wide approach could be interesting in the future. Do you prefer the longer Lumia 800 or the wider Lumia 850? You can follow Brian Bovi on Twitter (@brianmfb).
As you know, Nokia promised to include the cool Pureview camera technology on future Windows Phone devices. Well, Tasak already imagined a concept of a device likes this, that he named Nokia Lumia 1000. This handset is pictured below, it runs Windows 8 and features a 41 megapixel PureView camera, just like the one on the Nokia 808 PureView.
Nokia Lumia 1000 features an Intel ATOM Z2580 dual core 1.8 GHz processor, a PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPU at 533 MHz and a 4.3 inch AMOLED 1024 x 768 pixel display. Other specs include a microSD card slot, 64 GB of internal memory, 2 GB RAM and a secondary VGA camera with 30 fps video recording (VGA). The Nokia concept also offers NFC, USB 3.0 on the go, an accelerometer, proximity sensor, compass, stereo FM radio, infrared, Bluetooth, WiFI, GPS and a QWERTY keyboard with joystick.
Apparently, there’s also a TV function this 41 megapixel cameraphone. It’s strange to see Windows 8 on this handset instead of Windows Phone Apollo, but from what I’ve heard Win 8 and WP8 won’t be that different… How much would you price this phone if it was real?
Mohamed Magdy is the same guy who designed the Nokia C8 handset that I’m sure you’ve seen. Today I’ve come across another design of his, the Nokia Snow, that’s detailed in the pictures and video below. This is a 4 inch smartphone with a 1000 x 600 pixel resolution and a beautiful glass body with chrome edges. You can find some other concepts made by Mohamed right here.
The screen is a Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen and other specs of the Nokia Snow model include a front 2 MP camera, a 14.1 megapixel camera at the back, with Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus and LED flash. There’s also a SIM card slot on board, a microSD card slot, a microUSB 3.0 port, micro HDMI and a noise cancelation microphone. The device is supposed to run Windows Phone 7 and it adopts a flat design for its case. I like those Windows buttons very much, since they’re integrated into the device discretely.
The back of the phone and its rounded edges, plus that touch of chrome make it a pretty elegant device, certainly fancier than those plastic units Lumia 710 and Lumia 610. Is this better than the Nokia Lumia 800? Can’t really say, as they’re different designs, both pretty good. What’s Nokia going to come up with once they’ve used up the N9 form factor? We’ll have to wait and see…
