If this is what they meant with curved and smart, then Apple may finally be coming up with a new smart iWatch concept (and many can't wait until they confirm this news!). Speculators have created prototypes of what could Apple possibly be working on and a few interesting ones have come out.
The Guardian's The Observer published a cool-looking picture of what a "smart iWatch" would look like. Fashion folks might just love this bangle smart watch that these talented speculators have created.
Others hypothesize that it will feature iOS, Retina display, "a curved glass" design, a front-facing camera and all the works. It is also highly likely to be capable of syncing with other iOS devices, so there.
With all the hype and the things that come out of these speculations, it must be something really big and worth waiting for. If these speculations will turn out to be real, then it might be the start of another tech war with other providers-but involving smart watches this time, instead of smart phones.
A smartwatch device patent has been discovered in South Korea, with concept images apparently revealing that the device could pack a flexible display of some sort.
According to SamMobile, the patent found with the Korea Institute of Patent Information mentions SM-V700 model number for the smartwatch, which is the same model number we've seen in recent Samsung Gear smartwatch rumors. The Gear name is yet to be confirmed though.
Registered on May 31, the model number SM-V700 is mentioned again in the patent filing, and the images show what seems to be a concept design that may or may not make it to the actual product, though the final design should be something similar. You can make quite a few things, such as the placement of the power button, USB port, speaker/mic, and capacitive back and menu buttons, though again, these could just be part of the concept and may be placed differently.
What will the Samsung Galaxy S5 look like and what new features will it include? In the first in of the new concept feature videos in association with T3, Tech Radar & Gizmodo we use 3D rendering to envisage what the follow up to the Galaxy S4 might look like as well as reporting on some of the rumoured new features.
Here's a quick list of what the Galaxy S5 proposes in terms of specs:
- 5-inch flexible 2K HD Super AMOLED display (2560 x 1440 resolution and 587 ppi)
- flexible chassis - up to 30 degrees
- 64-bit octo-core processor

- 16-megapixel camera with 4K video capture support
- quad front-facing speakers with S Beats audio technology
- 4000mAh battery
- Android 4.4 KitKat with next-gen TouchWiz on top
When the Galaxy S4 was unveiled back in March, Samsung said that it listened to consumers when designing the phone - let's hope it's watching now as well.
For your longest time, the Android community seemed fixated across the thought of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, and all sorts of amazing changes it turned out rumored being bringing to Google's OS. Fast-forwarding to today, we now know that this next version of Android will in fact be 4.4 Kit Kat, but that's not stopping some folks from still yearning the future of Android.
Below is a new concept video by the fellow named Craig Tuttle, it's really just one man's vision for Android 5.0, and now we ought to admit his ideas are pretty cool. The recording primarily targets bringing deeper Google Now cards integration, including introducing several changes to the notification bar.
You will also recognize that the idea video shows a fresh opaque white look, rather than the more traditional Android blue colors we know and love today.
Finally, the playback quality also mentions multi-tasking stacks, which look absolutely amazing. Tell us what you think on the comment section below.
Paul Burke, the designer for Gmail for Android shares a stunning concept for the Gmail application and provides rendering of what it could look like when it gets updated to Key Lime Pie. According to Burke, he will put emphasis on navigation and will focus on the content and the people that you connect with, with using your account.
Some of the changes or improvements, according to Burke are sidebar improvement, icons placed on top of each email, larger headlines, quick attachments or calendar access. In addition, two-finger swipe up or down gestures will allow you to archive and save or delete messages.
From Burke's post:
The basic premise of this redesign is new navigation, and more focus on people and content. I've been working on this in tiny bursts for a while, and wanted to get more screens done, but at this rate, the actual app will come out first. I hope to, at least, get more done to show how the cards would work in the Conversation view.
These are only some of the changes made with Gmail and appearance-wise and based on the renderings, it is already a good concept and we can't wait until we get to see it personally on our device
