2013 is going to be a battlefield of high-end smartphone manufacturers. Sony unveiled their Xperia Z and ZL flagship devices to compete with next generation Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S IV. It seems HTC is also hiding a new competitor which is not officially announced yet, though we have seen some leaked images of the device under the "HTC M7" branding. What about Motorola? They haven't entered the competition yet and we didn't saw any high end device from them in recent past. Since Google acquired Motorola Mobility now they have a great chance to come up with a powerful flagship. Software updates wont be a issue when Motorola is now under the Google's hood.

The word "X Phone" emerged after the Google's CEO Larry Page talked about few areas in smartphone tech including "Battery Life" and "Durability". Another thing that reports says Motorola and Google are working on a Nexus like phone which Google is aiming to Launch the Next Android version "Key Lime Pie". This is how it all began. The Concept i have imagined here, maybe the first Motorola X Phone concept in internet.

My most favorite flagship is Sony Xperia Z. It took me a while to think what should i add to this X Phone to kill the features of Xperia Z. Finally i came up with some decent specs, i suppose. as CEO Larry Page said, Durability and Energy saving is highlighted in this concept.
As you can see in the above image, X phone features the Motorola front look and side bezel free design. reducing bezels makes the device more compact in user's hand while maintaining a larger screen. An LED notification light is placed at the bottom along with the microphone.

Sony Xperia Pro X Concept with Secondary Tactus Display

There are people who still loves to have a physical keypad on there Smartphone. With the large number of new brands and models coming to market, physical QWERTY keypads are getting far from the mobile devices. Touch screen era has just started. For some reasons typing on a touch screen isn't that comfortable as in a physical keypad. Tactus, a screen manufacture already looking for an answer to this problem. Finally they have introduced a touch screen that pops out it buttons from the screen. hard to believe? check out the video at the end of this post.
The Sony Xperia Pro X concept is inspired by the Tactus technology and i want to give a solution for physical keypad and gamepad lovers. CES 2013 ended up with new hopes for future technology. Xperia Pro X features some great specs which are introduced at CES this year.

Starting from the front side, It's the new Sony look with rectangular design we saw in Xperia Z and ZL. I really loved it due to less bezel used. Sony engineers claims that many people tend to show their face adjust to bottom of the screen when do a video conference call. So placing the front camera at the bottom seems odd but it has good advantages. Only differences i made were placing a small microphone middle of the bottom and moving the LED notification light to top.

Micromax Canvas 3 Concept

Micromax is a well growing Indian electronics manufacturer. The company is famous for their low cost Android smartphones and tablets. Recently they have started making LED Smart TVs with their own trademark technologies like AVEA engine. Most Indian people love the Micromax products as they can fulfill there telecommunication and multimedia needs with a less cost when compared to other brands in the market. Micromax A110, also known as Canvas 2 was the flagship device of the company. Canvas 2 was able to grab a good market share and still selling like hot potatoes. However when competing with the modern standards, i think Micromax needs to improve their hardware as well as software. The Canvas 3 Concept takes the "Canvas" Branding to the next level with high end+mid range features.

As you can see, from the front side,there are so many changes with improvements. Physical capacitive buttons are removed and replaced by software integrated buttons. This helps to reduce the height /length of the device and makes more compact in the hand. Ambient light sensor is next to the front facing camera,now no need to adjust the brightness manually when you go out side. Here are the most interesting and improved features of Canvas 3 over it's previous sibling.

Samsung Galaxy S IV Concept

Galaxy S III became the most successful selling flagship by Samsung in recent past. Even before the launch of  SIII, people had so many expectations from the handset. But most of them didn't became realities. Samsung unveiled the flagship with a new fresh design which is inspired by nature. the handset, it self looks like a pebble in a water flow. Anyhow Galaxy S III was able to win the peoples attention and started selling like hot potatoes. Even now, S III holds a good demand in the international market.Having a successor to SIII feels not so important at the moment.

Leaked information and rumors about Galaxy S IV brought some delightful ideas and new technologies such as big.LITTLE architecture and FHD AMOLED screens.latest rumor was S IV to support Samsung S-Pen and set to launch in April 2013. The Concept Design below was created with most of leaked information and rumors.
Front side, no doubt looks similar to Galaxy S III. differences are, i put the notification  light at the bottom, just like in Nexus 4. Front facing camera also on the left side from the ear piece and ear piece got a new speaker grill which is totally different from Samsung devices we have seen. The concept features a 5 inch FHD Super AMOLED+ screen with a resolution of 1080x1920 and a retina beating pixel density of 441ppi.

The screen on the real device could feature a flexible  AMOLED screen. There is no point of having a flexible screen if the whole device wont act as a flexible thing. On the right side power/lock button can be seen and it's the only physical button can be found on the device. Left side features the volume/zoom capacitive buttons.
