Sony might plan the launch of new, high-end smartphones for the next year, but that does not prevent enthusiasts from dreaming of devices they would like to see added to the Xperia lineup in the not too distant future.Kittisak Mangmee is one such person, and the handset that can be seen to the left represents their vision of what a new top-of-the-line smartphone should look like.
Dubbed Xperia Angler, this device is only a concept smartphone for the time being, though a time might come when we’ll be able to actually purchase such devices.
The handset sports a simple, rectangular design, though the edges have been shaped hexagonally, it seems.
While the outer design of the phone might look intriguing, the proposed internal circuitry of the device is certain to leave users puzzled.
The concept phone comes with a 2GHz quad-core processor packed inside, complemented by 2GB of RAM for increased performance levels, and 64GB of internal storage.
Moreover, the device sports a 4.7-inch touchscreen display, a Reality Display with the new Mobile X Reality engine and with Sony White Magic technology inside, as well as with Dragontrail Glass for increased resistance.
The concept smartphone also sports a black pearl aluminum body, which the designer says was inspired by the shape of a crystal, combined with the color of the deep sea.
Given the high-end hardware specs of the concept, we can also suppose that it would sport a high-quality photo snapper on the back, most probably above 12-megapixel.
As all the latest Xperia devices, the concept should be running under Google’s Android platform, most probably the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean or a future version of the OS.
All in all, the concept phone appears to be very close to what we can see on the market today, though its internal circuitry and capabilities would certainly make it fit for next year’s smartphone landscape.
