This metal-clad Galaxy S IV concept render should be framed at Samsung's design desk

Concept phone renderings are where the imagination can run wild and very rarely jibe with production and marketing realities at big companies, but one can dream, right..?

Ever think... this might really be the S4?

nothing lists metal frame. that isnt necessarily metal.

Gorgeous concept. The front speakers are my favorite.

this is a very nice looking concept. if they could change the body to a polycarbonate body and keep everything else, i think this would be a clear winner for the year.

I miss the days when HTC had designs like this. Desire HD and Sensation was beautiful for their time.

If Samsung doesn't use metal it is calculated. They used metal in the tab 7.7 and it was lighter and thinner than the iPad mini and that was 2 years ago. They can do pretty much what they want as you can see from the tab 7.7 metal chassis and the amazing LED on the Nexus 10.

If they go plastic again and AMOLED, it's calculated and for the better.

Not to mention the Galaxy camera screen is a pretty nice LED.
