Can't wait for the Z4? Take a gander at its splendid Sony Xperia Curve concept

Can't wait for the Z4? Take a gander at its splendid Sony Xperia Curve concept
While we are waiting to gauge exactly how the long-awaited Xperia Z4 will look like, and how it will be spec'd-out by Sony, you can marvel at a new concept for the Xperia phones' design popped up, and it is nothing to sniff at.

Dubbed Sony Xperia Curve, this concept render flaunts what the name implies - fleshy, stylish rounded sides, for an overall elliptical impression, doing away with the edgy Xperias of yesteryear. This wishful thinking of a phone is equipped with a 5.2" display, 3 GB of RAM, Snapdragon 810 (what else), 20 MP camera, JBL stereo speakers, and 64 GB of storage out of the box. 

Nothing completely out of whack here, but it's these gorgeous curves that will be the main selling point if ever Sony decides to lean in that very direction shown here. Still, despite the extreme side tapering, this concept manages to keep the Xperia design heritage remarkably well, what do you think?

Sony has been reporting heavy losses along with HTC. Neither one will last long.

But it is never good if any of those abandon the game.... I do wish both HTC and Sony to keep it up and come up with something positive... because having less players in this game, leads to less innovation and competition, and less options... Tell me why there is a Galaxy S4 Active and tell me why the Galaxy S5 and S5Mini are water resistant??? Answer: because of Sony... while not being a serious threat, Samsung realized that Sony was grabbing attention due to the water resistant features in their devices... in fact.. water proof is the first thing I look for when buying a new phone. After owning the Acro S for 2 years and enjoying that feature with friends and family in pools and beach, I don't see myself going back to non water proof phones.

Because they can jump to growing graphics with they Z line. For example, no one can offer such a sweet dream like the Z compact phones on the market right now (or they just don't want).

Doubtful, no manufacturer would copy generic and cheap Chinese junk

I wish Sony will bring back transparent strips like the ones in Xperia S, P, and U which can serve as capacitive off-screen buttons so you could enjoy the entire screen.

Looks what thier phone should look like NOW

Sony is not a copying company, so they wouldn't make phones like this. In fact this concept pictures look like Xiaomi Mi3.

Right Sony doesn't copy, but everybody knows that Chinese companies rip off and copy as fast as the people there reproduce. Highly doubtful some cheap Chinese phone maker actual had an original design, let alone any tasteful design like this.

Sony should follw HTC and release good mid range phones and not concentrate too much on high end phones. Look at what is happening to samsungto

Z3 looks a lot better than this fan made render, and I just hope they maintain the similar looks sans the outlandish bezels.

They really need to fire their design team,it really haven't changed since xperia z,plus the ui is all the same since last 5years.icons are the same old since they were on Sony Ericsson. This design is good but not awesome,kinda reminds me of old lumia

I've been following phones in the z series for a while now, and this is by far the most attractive concept I've seen yet. If they release this phone, there's not a chance I won't buy it.

Really? I disagree, being a long term Sony fan and a product designer, this doesn't interest me, if Sony did this i would be very disappointed.
