I hope to hell Spigen's design is based on that rumoured prototype and it's not the real design. If they put out that same design for a 3rd Gen people are going to get bored and annoyed... Myself included, and I have have had every Galaxy phone except the S4. I'm on the Note 3 now but it's a little too big to be practical for me so I'm looking to the S5 for rescue. Samsung likes to copy things that work but I sure hope they don't try to copy Apple's sh*tty business model of putting out the same phone for 7 years in a row and trying to milk customers or I'll be taking a serious look at the Xperia and new HTC One.

Actually, if you cared to pause the video and look, that is an actual camera, not a phone. It's too narrow to be a GS5, but there's a chance it could be a "GS5 Zoom". Also, there's a lanyard around the guys hand, I don't know many people that put those on their phones anymore.

i was thinking the same, but its very hard to tell, it is clearly a samsung, but other then that, all i can see is 1 hardware button at the bottom on the phone on the right, it actually looks like its been superimposed into the shot, as i'm not sure what that casing is around the right hand phone, looks a little odd, but maybe thats just the way it was shot.
either way i cant wait to see how much it has improved, i hope they have learnt some lessons, they need to really bring a market leading phone, with all the bells and whistles not just software, im most interested to see what the camera is like in low light, would also really love a micro usb 3.0 port as is on the note 3, 2 more days till im put out of my misery of waiting lol.

actually worldwide sales figures of samsung galaxies show most people like that button. cause theyre the only major brand that has chosen not to the on screen way. its just a geeky internet based assumption that everybody doesnt like home button.

86. deathgod (Posts: 120; Member since: 23 Nov 2011)


Not necessarily. They've never offered a version of their main Galaxy line (S,S2,S3, etc) without a physical home button afaik, so most buyers wouldn't have ever experienced onscreen buttons.

US original S versions (ie Epic 4G, Vibrant, Captivate, Fascinate) had no hardware home button, just capacitive buttons.

Totally disagree... this is one of my main features of the phone. I don't have to worry about power button since it's a lot easier to press home button to turn on the phone. I will only use a phone that has a physical home button. After S3 I have been very used to it and I hope they will continue. Tablets on another hand don't need one but it's not a deal breaker for me.

That's no good, there seems to be no design improvement and a physical home button is there... Was hoping to get it if it was onscreen keys but now I'm disappointed again...

You're disappointed because you're too lazy to read the article or even browse through those images. There are 2 variants one with and the other one without a physical button.

Plus its a 3d render and you can't even see the back ! How did you just assume there are no design improvements. Go troll someone else.

People will get boring of Samsung's design if they don't change it, so millions of people do care about that.

Even if the S5 will sell millions, who cares? You buy a phone because of the sales it get? That ain't a consumer, that's a attention seeker.

The design will definitely change! This just a 3d render. Wait till Monday and you'll see.

And as a fan of Samsung galaxy phone, If the design doesn't change I'll still buy it anyway. It's called loyalty not attention seeking!

Your statement makes no sense. An attention seeker wouldn't get the same phone everyone else has. How would that draw any attention to your phone? Someone seeking attention would be better off getting something no one has.

Not many successful line-ups' design are changed that very often. Whether its HTC's One, iPhone or even Lumias.

But its only a 3d render which doesn't show any sensors on front or give any clue of materials. Also the back isn't visible.

35. Diego! (Posts: 504; Member since: 15 Jun 2009)


Agreed. But Samsung said they would be changing its designs for 2014. I hope they do it with S5. We need a fresh and newer design in cellphones.

What we see on the rendered image:
(No physical button -> Posible) + (No ear speaker -> Impossible) = this is not the actual S5 face.

29. Florin.T (Posts: 110; Member since: 16 Dec 2013)


That's a valid point, but: if you take an Xperia Z1 render and put a case on it, you probably would not see the speaker grill. Since the S5 is expected to be waterproof, maybe they made the speaker small and somewhat hidden - like Sony did on the Z1. I'm not saying these are indeed S5 renders, but the non-visible speaker shouldn't rule out their authenticity.
