10 of the best smartphone concepts we wish were real

Asus Z2 Poseidon

Designer: Designed By Hege

Most concept phones are about innovative new designs and out of the ordinary features, but the Asus Z2 Poseidon focuses on raw power, sporting an Intel processor, 6GB of RAM and a massive 6.0-inch QHD screen.

In the mind of its creator it offers PC-class performance, so you can play games way beyond anything you'd see on a typical smartphone. A 6000mAh battery ensures it can last for more than ten minutes of that and a liquid heat pipe and air cooling system stops it getting too hot.

With four front-facing speakers as well the Asus Z2 Poseidon is clearly a media powerhouse and while it's not designed to look attractive, it's certainly not ugly, with almost zero bezel and an aluminium shell.
