While waiting for new, highly appealing smartphones to be officially unveiled or become available for purchase, enthusiasts are often dreaming of what the next flagship handset from their favorite vendor would have to offer.
Some of them are also able to transform their thoughts into digital content to provide others with a glimpse at their vision of the future, and Ben Ling is one of these people.
Recently, he came up with a new concept phone
that could soon become Sony’s next flagship Android-based smartphone, the Xperia Z.
Although many users are currently looking to get larger and larger smartphones, Ben Ling went for a smaller approach with his concept phone, packing it only with a 4.3-inch touchscreen.
Of course, it is still a Full HD TFT display and can also deliver an impressive resolution, even if it might not be as big as the panels of other current devices. It also features Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, for a better experience.
The Xperia Z concept phone sports a 14-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with LED flash and Exmor R sensor, capable of 16x digital zoom and able to record full HD videos (1080p).
A dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon application processor powers this device
, providing it with the raw power that users would like it to deliver, especially since it is complemented by 1GB of RAM.
The Sony Xperia Z concept phone is only 9.9 mm thick, while weighing 121 grams. It packs 16 GB of storage inside, along with a Li-Ion 1910 mAh battery, Bluetooth connectivity, and all the features that we’re accustomed to seeing packed inside smartphones.
The concept device runs under Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, and it could easily sport Sony’s own user interface loaded on it.
The outer design of this smartphone is also appealing, with sloped lower and upper sides and with a glossy front panel. The whole case looks very good as well.
With not too far-fetched hardware specifications and with a simple yet great-looking outer design, the Sony Xperia Z concept phone might become reality one day. In the meantime, enjoy the photo that Ben Ling provided with it (via
