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.

Indeed looks like the S4 Active, but could be the S5 Active too...

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.

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.

I think it's ugly too. Useful, but ugly.

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.
