Motorola Nexus+ is a concept for the future with dual stereo speakers
Google’s acquisition of Motorola so far has yielded close to zero results, but if the Android maker decides to make its next Nexus device a Motorola one, we might be in for a huge comeback. And here is a concept of what such a device - aptly named Nexus+ by the designer - might look like.

It’s just a concept, imagined and unreal, we should warn you. But it borrows some interesting cues from current high-end handsets that we’d love to see on a Nexus phone. First, the 5-inch 1080p display, but then also a more powerful Snapdragon 800 processor and dual-front stereo speakers. The camera is also suggested to be 13 megapixel one, hopefully more capable than the one on the current Nexus 4. Right below you can see the concept renders of what such a Nexus+ might look like.

In the meantime, we might have just seen the first prototypes of a real next Nexus phone by LG. Images of a buttonless phone with extremely narrow bezel leaked out and the very fact that the design has no physical buttons is a strong hint at a Nexus future for that leak. LG’s Optimus devices all have a largy physical key in the front bottom.

Excuse me please Motorola has always made its own design. And the render is really good! Hope we can see this in shelves!

I'm not going to 'thumbs down'; even though I am a big fan of my G3. However, I still need a removable battery. It's as simple as that. I especially appreciate this as I replaced my battery twice this weekend when I was not able to charge my phone.

I would have been dead in the water without that option.

HTC didn't come up with the idea to use dual speakers on phones at all. Just keep lying to yourself that they did but theres some old smartphones that had it. The reason they don't use front facing speakers is because they come with more problems then benefits.

you're right...i had a Nokia N82 with stereo speakers...it was a smartphone with physical buttons...my brother also had a n95 and I guess it had stereo speakers too.
Dont know if Nokia came up with the idea though..I miss that time when nokia had the best phones....not a nokia fan, just a tech enthusiast...not a geek or nerd either =).

I like the HTC One and I'm considering buy it or S4 and waiting to see the X Phone and Nexus 5 first. But the HTC One looks like it was inspired by the HTC Droid X

HTC is the best mobile hardware manufacturer, followed by Nokia. Since the latter is clearly sucking on Microsoft's tits, Google should have opted for HTC, which i'm sure would have obliged us with a wonderfully built Nexus 5, given HTC's still low but gradually rising profits, it needs to churn out as many successful devices as possible and Google's new Nexus device would have been a serious profits-booster.

Kinda looks like an S4 and iphone combined.....you honestly can't tell me that *if* this were going to be the design of the phone that apple wouldn't try to get them on the home button and black color with silver strip, saddens me every day

Well said. When I saw the pictures my mind went straight to Iphone but I did not thank of S4. So this is what would happen when if an Iphone and an S4 had a child. LOL

If it's an ideea, why did it stoped here? Why didn't they incorporated flexible 4k holografic screens, mind controled menus, folding body and 7.1 srs speakers?!
It's an ideea so get creative; that thing in the pictures is nothing more than a very low expectancy wannabe.

1080p, stereo front facing speakers would have been crazy a year ago, today they are reality.

A concept phone should be like a fairy tale: fantastic, extraordinary, out of this world.

A concept phone should be a possible phone, yeah some nice extra stuff are OK but if it can be mass produced it's even better

posted on 07 May 2013, 15:38

49. Leo_MC (Posts: 551; Member since: 02 Dec 2011)


What have I said thats no possible?

4k - it exists
holographic images - they exist
mind controled menus - maybe Google glass-like for now but the technology is there
folding body - we already have flexible screens
7.1 speakers - I have them on my home cinema.

Take them all, put them into a phone and you get "my fairy tale".
This article speaks about an unbilt device - it's not hard to build one: Opo or Huawei can do it, even that indian company can; even a repair shop engineer with a glue gun can build a phone like that; a concept phone is a lot more than this.

True. It's still a render, though. If the actual phone looks like that, I'm gonna jump all over it. I've been holding out for the X Phone :D

Too sexy to be a Motorola, unless Google has moved them out of the "military grade" looking handsets. That's not a bash on Motorola, they build rugged handsets that fit the "Droid" mantra more than anyone.

I like the front of it... but I don't really like the back

The concept is interesting... Hopefully this device will come to fruit.

are you complaining about the front facing speakers?

if you are, please explain in which situation it is better to have the speaker on the rear of the phone...

no no mate, I'm living in an environment where people tend to throw their headphones away out of a box and than make life miserable for normal people in public transport :)) the better speakers are, the more annoying these people get... :D just sayin...
