The latest Sony Xperia N1 concept smartphone has now appeared online via social networking site Google+. The concept image of the device from Concept Phone, designed by Janish Kolakkattil, is not as tempting as the company's other devices. Moreover, it appears in a rather squarish design instead of the company's traditional rounded corner design.
The concept phone was imagined to come in white, black, red, purple and yellow color variants, along with a dotted back plate, which sounds somewhat like the ones Samsung has used in its recent Galaxy S5 flagship.
However, the phone, called Sony Xperia N1, represents only the imagination of the aforementioned designer. As you can see from the image, the designer has in fact combined most of the aspects from the popular devices like LG G2 and Samsung. The display is completely taken from LG's flagship devices, which comes with minimum bezel size.
The phone's dual LED-flash on the back comes with some sort of a button between the two flashes. The first time you see it, you will make a guess that this probably is a power button. But when you take a glance again at the side of the phone, the power button is already there. So there is no explanation as to what the back button is actually for.
Surprisingly, the phone's hardware specifications is not the one that belongs to the flagship device. Because it features a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus SoC with Adreno 440 GPU which can be seen in an entry-to-mid-range devices currently. It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat OS.
The design comes with a 4.5-inch touchscreen display offering a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and Sony's proprietary technology X Reality Engine is also featured in the device.
In terms of imaging, there is a13-megapixel camera on the rear side with dual-LED flash and capable of recording videos in full HD resolution. Also a 2MP front facing snapper can be seen in the image.
The imagined Xperia N1 in the image despite its new look, features a regular set of connectivity specs which include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, microUSB 2.0 with MHL support, Bluetooth, and NFC. Also a dual-SIM support can be found.
The internal storage capacity is seated 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot as well. Sensors like accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor and compass has also been added by the designer. There is a 1850mAh battery used by the designer in the device.
It should be noted that the device is just a concept model and will not hit the shelves until Sony takes up the design and pushes it forward.
