It’s been a while since our last post with a concept made by an Esato board user, so here we are again, with a Sony Ericsson device running Android 1.6. The design belongs to user RKSynth, who keeps it classical and simple, as far as the UI is concerned.
Android 1.6 is the OS of choice and the design looks more like a combo between HTC and Sony Ericsson, but one with very rectangular edges. No idea on what the specs are here, but we’re guessing there’s at least a 3MP camera at the back, a 3.5 inch display upfront and maybe 2GB or more of internal storage.
There’s no need for dual core CPU or even a 1GHz one in this situation so an older 600MHz processor will do. Keep this handset cheap and you’ve got yourself the perfect low end device of the future.

FreshFarfan from Deviantart created back in 2008 a Sony Ericsson phone that we love even now, the Sony Ericsson P2i model. It’s not dual core, it’s not packed with a 4 inch display or other tech wonders, but it still looks great! This is the mother of all Xperias, if you ask me.
I imagine that it uses a 3.7 inch touch display, but I can’t figure out if the QWERTY keyboard is physical or capacitive. Let’s say that the Sony Ericsson concept phone comes with 16GB of internal memory, Android and an 8MP camera and we’re happy (my speculations, not real specs).

Esato board member RKSynth recently published a concept that reminds us of the times when Sony Ericsson rocked the world. Well, they seem to be back at it, with the Xperia series, but there was a time when the T and P models were very loved. The handset below combines the design of a P Series model with the back of a Cyber-shot.
The idea of having a portrait QWERTY keyboard with a sliding part on top is quite original and PDA-like, for old school fans. Would you buy such a device, especially if it had Android on it?

We’ve seen tons of concepts on our site, but few with a CPU over 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz. Designer Frank Tobias broke the limit with his latest work, the Sony Ericsson Noxus, a handset with a portrait sliding QWERTY keyboard.
This slider touchscreen smartphone uses an 8.1MP camera, a 4 inch touch display (Gorilla Glass protection) and runs Android. Frank Tobias says that the device is related to the Sony Ericsson Plexus, while we were wondering if there’s any relation to the Nexus Google Phones… probably not.

Mobilissimo have come up with an interesting theory, regarding the fact that this handset’s design, dating from 3 years back might have been the inspiration for the iPhone 4.
Some of you might remember the Sony Ericsson concept phone below, while to others it may seem brand new. One thing is for sure: the folks of
The design is still good enough to impress everyone even in 2010, when sliding phones with tiny displays and physical keys aren’t so cool any more. We can’t really say that Apple copied this look, but they could have used some of its traits on the newest iPhone. We wonder why Sony Ericsson didn’t take the same route…

mkDesign recently sent us some photos of a phone design, the Sony Ericsson Paras. This device reminds us a bit of the SE Aino, but the specs are decent enough to make the device appealing. Paras is based on the A200 platform and supports touch input via the 240 x 432 pixel display.
It also comes with a Walkman Player, one-press menu interaction, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, 3G+ connectivity and an 8 megapixel camera with flash. 720p capture is also supported on this Sony Ericsson concept, that includes a 3.5mm audio jack and stereo speakers among the features, too.

other concepts you saw yesterday, Andro Gama also created the Sony Ericsson UTA Walkman phone, pictured below. This device uses a design that reminds us of the SE Aino handset and we learn that it packs a 3.2 megapixel camera capable of 240 x 320 video capture at 120 fps.
Aside from the
Its display is a 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen and on board we also find an accelerometer, a 3.5mm audio jack, 3G connectivity, gesture control support and a nifty front LED Walkman illumination system.

XPERIA XTX1 concept, that you can check out in the following images.
Pairing up the XPERIA brand with a 12 megapixel camera and changing the front buttons on the smartphone is a bold move, but Esato board user juris15 wasn’t afraid to pull it off. The result? The
The Sony Ericsson design shows a handset with a front camera, a 3.5mm audio jack, a 12.25 megapixel camera with an Exmor sensor and support for HD video capture. HDMI out is also on board and we have to mention that the designer doesn’t quite like the front buttons, so if you’ve got suggestions, feel free to post them in the comments section.

Andro Gama’s series of Sony Ericsson designs continues below with the Animo with Walkman handset. This device features a large touch display, the great Walkman music player, touch keys beneath the display and possibly all the memory one will need to save discographies. Some DJ apps will also contribute to the music phone’s image.

Frank Tobias has just created the Sony Ericsson Aino Mini phone, shown below and detailed after the break.
Since SE is so keen on turning each and every one of its handsets into mini versions, concept designers are also doing the same thing.
This Sony Ericsson concept is a mini version of the SE Aino, featuring a 10 megapixel camera, HD video recording and 10GB of memory, plus an extra of 64GB due to memory cards. Expect the screen diagonal on the device and the resolution to smaller than the ones of the original Aino. What do you say, is this viable?
