Samsung Galaxy S5 concept takes its design cues from a current flagship
Designer Hasan Kaymak often comes up with concept models for HTC handsets. That seems apparent after taking a look at his concept for the Samsung Galaxy S5. Looking like some relative of the flagship HTC One, this Galaxy S5 concept includes an edge-to-edge screen of an undisclosed size, two speakers in front (similar to HTC's BoomSound), a metal casing, curved corners, and a reversible microUSB port.

The device would include TouchWiz 5 running on top of Android 4.4, and instead of a notifications bar on the lock screen, actionable notifications would pop up under the user's picture. The notifications shade still comes down with a swipe from top to bottom. This concept offers support for voice commands.

The real Samsung Galaxy S5 will surely not look anything like this, although we should see a metal body for the upcoming year's version of the flagship Android device. If you want to see a closer look at Kaymak's concept, check out the slideshow below.

If it looks like that, HTC will be suing.

As sorry as Samsung designers are,, they aren't that bad to blatantly copy like that.. Samsung has the same old boring design on their Galaxy devices, but at least it's THEIR same old boring design.. I'll give them that❕

Well I think you're mistaking Samsung for Nokia here. Samsung does refresh its design every 2years. Nokia? Same heavy fat brick design since the N9.

Well, luckily the term "heavy fat brick" doesn't apply to my 1520 because that would not be good... Lol❕ I think my 1520 is lighter than my 920..LOL❕❕
Oh, and we can't forget about Nokia's commitment they made to not use the "N9" design on every new device, and we have seen that with the distinctive design of the 925, and 928.. Actually there's been only 5 devices to use the N9 design.. Look at the rest.

Darkkjedii made quite a legit statement, then you came with your Nokia fanboy self, and then SleepingOZ defended. rodneyej1.. if you like a specific brand don't brag and stick by that brand.

How is it that so man??? Where is the from home button on the HTC One?, the back side clearly suggest that is would have an cover for battery/internal access (see the grey colour bit on the back), this up/down bezel on the One with the speakers on the outside while on the concept the speakers are next to the screen and so on... This looks nothing like the One, look at the 2 pictures one next 2 the other and please, stop taking cheap shots like this, you know better... Just a lame action to milk some thumbs up from another biased PA folowers... Peace out

That's why I love my Lumia 920, and 1520.. All other phones look the same.. Now, Sony has some good design, but in my opinion LG, Samsung, and others ate just boring clones of the played out Galaxy look... I do think that HTC can be good when they try.. Just look at the One, and the 8X. Those where some terrific designs.. Nothing beats Nokia though.. Now, this is just my opinion....

Samsung is the worst❕

No.. Samsung makes great devices.. So, don't even try it.. Now, as far as design goes,, they could do a whole lot better.. But, I'm no hater who can't give credit where credit is due.. Samsung has ok quality, great selection, good innovation, and terrific support.. Boring, old school design.. IMO.. So, that's more of an unbiased opinion than your boys can give on a WP related article...

"Boring, old school design.. IMO.."
Sorry, but your opinion is still biased. You should go to the Samsung store and try the Note 3, hold it and feel it.

Please be more less-fanboynism, you will earn some respect from other people.

I'll give you that.. I have held the Note 3, plenty❕.. It is a little different, and it has a better quality feel, but I still think Samsung can do better.. The design of the 8X, One, and pretty much all of Sony's devices are awsome❕... Fanboi❔ I'm not hating on Android, or saying Samsung devices are bad just because they run Android, so what are you talking about.❔.. This is just a discussion about design, and in my opinion Sony, and Nokia, and Apple are about equal, HTC is next, and Samsung, and LG could do better.. Do you think all I look at at stores are WP devices❔.. Really❔.. Do you know how many note devices I see everyday at work❔.. You must think really highly of yourself to think I care about your respect..

Chill the f**k out bro, there's nothing wrong with being a fanboy, but do you know that your comments are too fanboynism? You're like Steve Ballmer's brother, do you know that?

I don't hate you, and I love Nokia too. It's just that your super duper fanboynism comments are embarrassing Nokia and Windows Phone. I hope you understand. Again, please be more less-fanboynism, you will earn some respect from other people.

Please dont include nokia, cant you see their phones are so obnoxious? By the way HTC one is better then iphone in terms of design... sony won many awards in the past for designs but sony is best as well in fu©king something in their every flagship.. I do agree samsung is boring in their designs and the problem of LG is, it always try to do what samsung has already done. I will not call it a copy bcoz technology is not someone's father property but LG always try to walk on a foot print of samsung

Lol seriously you are defending a dead company.
A company who woke up way too late went with Microsoft and fell for their destructiveness. That's why Nokia is at 98% of being gone, sold, deceased just like Ericsson and Siemens years ago. All the big dogs eventually die and we all know it is true so will Samsung and Apple also Die eventually but for now they are top dogs in the game. So please you are trolling on a Samsung Article where you are outnumbered by a couple of million. Cheers and enjoy your Brickia

The problem with your comments rodneyej1 is how you seem to state them as fact not opinions. You can't bet your phone is better than any other phone because that is highly subjective. You could however bet that your phone does more than a flip phone, not better than, but does more. That's a fact that can be proven.

No one can say with certainty like you that Nokia and HTC have the best designed phones, period. You can believe that to you they are the best designs and that would be true. But to say they are better than any phone is crazy.

This thing looks like the HTC One, and I can't wait to see the Note 4. Samcopy or Copysung has the money to beat down any suit that HTC throws their way. Just like they've beaten down all Apples' lawsuits... They spend 14 billion in advertising a year, plus on time updates, bring it Samsung! Then pay HTC a billion $$, and call it a day.
