PhoneArena finally gets something right - projected keyboard (to type); technically, impossible.

Nonetheless, it adds a little 'je ne sais quoi' to the production!!

This video was a miss with me. I'm not sold by the laser projection keyboard. It was definitely cool and impressive, but just like pop up play, I don't see it enhancing the typing experience for touchscreens.

i don't think samsung should use 5" with physical home button, they should use on screen button because it allow the device to be smaller and also 5" is just way too tall, it's better to use the whole 5" to watch videos but use around 4.7- 4.8" for daily use.

the laser keyboard dock is very possible nowadays, it would bring apple users drooling !

So, you like to use 'the whole 5 inches'?

I actually thought the concept was boring but understand, I want to see the real thing.

Instead of the "LAZER" keyboard, I would rather have the LEAP motion input device installed.

I also don't want polycarb gloss look. But a Burgundy/honey looking device would be nice.

I am sure it will have Android 4.2.1.

The 5 inch screen hopefully will be edge to edge... otherwise it may be too big for my hands.

I like my home menu home and back buttons on my e4gt gs2 and would like to see them back or something like the nexus no physical buttons. don't care for GS3 or note2 buttons, as they make me think of the Apple products.

I would like to see more information on the cameras sensors when the specs come out.

They wouldn't release it with a newer version of Android until Google announces it.

lol, 1080p Grand AMOLED Display. xD

i hope the real SIV looks nothing close to this.
i hope Samsung devises a new design philosophy instead of following the "nature" theme from this past year. people weren't too crazy about it. let's go with a theme that makes it exude quality and durability.

also i'm pretty sure this time the members of Samsung's design team that wanted virtual function keys will have their way this time so goodbye dumb home button. i really don't like using the buttons on the SIII.

not crazy about it? Its still outselling the iphone5. Samsung will follow the money like any good company so most likely you will see more "nature" designs.

I don't think people were buying the S3 for it's design tho. Everybody were crazy about the specs, but not too many are fond about the actual design.

They why did they buy it over say, the One X/Evo 4G LTE? The specs were practically identical between the phones.

SGS3 benchmarked higher. Batter life last longer. There's plenty there that the specs doesn't tell you. Not to mentioned marketing, how much commercial did you see with One X/Evo 4G LTE on it? SGS3 is the most talked about phone when One X was being released, it was the most anticipated handset of the year. Look at the SGS4 now, it's not even out yet and the specs are being rumored. You don't see this kind of excitement from people regarding HTC devices.

HTC never made those devices nearly as appealing as Samsung has with their Galaxy phones. between the Galaxy S's brand reputation as being the best Android handsets, software features, powerful hardware and excellent marketing the SIII was poised for success even before it's release. the design was a miss but many people accept it because it's the Galaxy SIII.

"the design was a miss but many people accept it because it's the Galaxy SIII."

That's the perfect way to put it. Hey... doesn't it kind of sound like how it is with the company with a bitten fruit as a logo?

excuse me remixfa but the design is most certainly not the selling point of the SIII for most people. the Galaxy SII crossed a threshold in sales and popularity that allowed it's successor to sell itself from just the brand, the SIII is a nice phone but if you'll recall from the announcement the design was a complete disappointment but you may be right about Samsung deciding to rekindle the success of the SIII by following the same recipe with the SIV.

The design is very good. Granted I do have a beef with the screen that samsung uses (namely how its SUPER prone to minor scratches) but otherwise the design is great.

i just hope Samsung stick with the 4.8 screen and work on decreasing the bezel other wise the phone will lose its purpose as a phone and will be more like a new phablet , i wish instead they work on a better battery life and please get rid of the physical button its so flip phone function.

NONO NO. Adding a bigger battery is the lazy way to make the juice last longer. Make it 10x more efficient instead! Smaller batteries that last as long as the larger batteries on the older phones.

“the most thinnest one, much thinner than Galaxy S3 & iPhone 5”

I just want to make sure it won't bend easily when placed in my pants pocket when I sit down.
