Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 concepts based on company's design patent

Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 concepts based on company's design patent
Just a few days ago, after the calendar flipped over to 2014, Samsung resubmitted a design patent that originally saw the light of day in August. Once thought to be the design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, that was ruled out when Sammy released the third iteration of its phablet. So when the Korean OEM once again sent the application into the USPTO, we put on our thinking caps and came up with the idea that the images might be showing us an advance look at the Samsung Galaxy S5, and by extension, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

Ivo Maric took the design on the patent applications and whipped up a Samsung Galaxy S5 concept based on the patent that was awarded to Samsung on New Year's Eve. Just like the sketches, Maric's phone includes a curved display on each side of the device. Jermain Smit took a different tact. He used the drawings from the design patent to come up with a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, which also features the curved display.

Concept models are just that, a concept designed by a third party based on information gleaned from leaked images and specs or based on nothing more than the designer's own imagination. You can check out what Maric and Smit came up with by clicking on the slideshow below.

These look really nice, but honestly I miss the days of softtouch phones. I LOVED the feel of my Thunderbolt, and my Droid Bionic. And honestly, the OG Galaxy Note had the best design from a Galaxy phone IMO.

For me the design is important, however I care about the feel a lot more! All of those phones had a great feel. My Galaxy S3 is overall sticky, and the plastic is kind of shifty and poorly finished. The OG Note was very basically finished, I really liked it.

Apart from speaker placement & glossy plastic, galaxies are nicely design. Note 3 definitely a big jump from s4.

Concept design phones never have curved edges.

Nokia N74 iTalian, German concept designs for iPhones were always rectangular sharp edges.

This idear is not concept, but looks mote like Samsungs iNnovat8 series

I dared to like your comment at first because a dozens of *professional* graphic designers could jump in and laugh at my face, or even could say I'm a Sammy seeder. But on second thought, I need to be honest to vote this comment up.

It would be nice if stuck closer to the look of stock Android. The Touchwiz UI looks like something a child threw together.

It's your opinion and that's his...IMO stock UI looks boring...I prefer touchwiz look over stock...But in looks nothing can beat HTC sense...

Stock android is boring.. I am using Nexus 4 since last 7 months.. got bored of this so called vannilla android in just first month.. so plane & boring.. no features.. it's like a newly built house without any furniture.. :p

Or one that is clean and polished...don't get me wrong its nice to have some of the added features that you can get from an OEM's take on Android, but after a few months of using sense on the HTC One, my old GNex was quite a refreshment.

Looks really nice but it's an absolute shame they don't have front facing speakers. Why do phones always need some form of compromise? It drives me insane!!! Take the HTC one, put a Snapdragon 805, 4gb of RAM, +3500mah removable battery and +32gb expandable storage, UHD low reflection/high brightness AMOLED screen(give or take half an inch in screen size) and Lumia 1020 camera in it. Hell charge $800 for it even and I damn near guarantee it will be the best selling phone of all time.

Why do you need 5GB of RAM?

lol 5 gig of Ram.. what u want o do with it ? navigate a satelite or what!!
My pc had 4 gig of ram with a 7750 HD GPU & it can rock BF4 & COD 7... 2 gig of ram is enough for a mobile for now...

your better off waiting for LG G3 for octo core samsungs not putting it in this they'll probably use snapdragon on this one like always.. The octo core is a joke if a dual core can out perform it.

I'll take powerful specs with a big enough battery to enjoy it on.

Lol! The patent was said to have a slightly curved glass, but not a curved screen. This screens tapers much like what the iPhone 6 was rumored to be.

Exynon processor are not good for developer ,for costume rooms it's better to buy a phone powered by Qualcomm or tegra. Check galaxy i9500 against i9505

I was about to say that I'm really tired of PA posting every single fan-made design they come across. I'd rather have solid news and not speculation.
But when I saw these, I had to admit that these look pretty great.

Actually the first thing that came to mind when I saw image 2 was the older HTC designs, like the Nexus 1 or the Sensation. Maybe just me but the curved top and bottom of the screen is very similar.

Looks like an uglier smaller note3. Why on earth are they putting fake leather on the back, so ugly. All that money left the design team that was already weak, and went into advertising el o el o el o el
