Come on guys the bezels are much bigger than the S4.
Samsung will surely keep the bezels small for easy handling.
This cannot be the S5.

i think anyone who likes samsung will agree this is not a good look and that could lead to bad press, when will all phones makers understand music is a major part of our days, i would like apples speakers on galaxy or lg phone but 2 at top and 2 at bottom thats what we want. the htc speakers are nice upfront but sound so low its horrible.

Looks like amazing by the promo.. Let's see..
I didn't set my hopes high like last year.....
If it has OIS, higher resolution camera with better low light photo capture ability (not expecting something like nokia lumia 1020 but 80% of this), bigger bettery (3000 mAh+ removable), exynos with LTE, 1080p screen, and etc... Than and then i m going to buy it...

Why not get an LG G2...it already has most of this!! I don't see how you can say it's amazing from the pics and video? I personally think it will be amazing, but this article did nothing for me

These can't be true images of the S5. I can't imagine they would release a phone with such a huge bezel!!

Front is defo fake...rear could be genuine! Camera / flash size & placement match some of the leaked images so far. White case reveals what looks like the leather effect back cover of the GN3?

Same old design and where are those people who were complaining about htc m8 bezels? They surely havent seen this one and please dont defend sammy. So eargely waited to upgrade from note 2 to S5 but a huge NO if this really comes out. Who uses that air gestures, smart say, smart etc etc features. Everyone use to complaint about iphone redesign but i guess we all know they bring something atleast 25% different after 2 years. Like after a 4S or 5S but these sammy guys still the same s3 s4 and now this along with all those mid and low range phones. I believe in brand revognition but this is crap. NO to this if this final design. x(

So, judging from the clips within the video- could this mean that The Next Galaxy will be able to take slow-motion video, time-lapse shooting and have a high sensitivity image sensor.

Btw paus at 0:13 if thats the s5 it has almost no bezels at all :p.

it had it on the s3 also.. but slow-motion with real quality.. since both the note 3's note 2s and s4 and s3's slowmotion had kinda sh*tty quality.

Guys i have a question....what is the price of motorola moto g in your country? I was thinking of buying it... but it is priced unfairly in my country. I've heard it is 179$ for 8gb in usa, but in my country it is around 230-240$ for 8gb version. Is the pricing really unfair or is it priced higher than that in USA? What about in other countries? Im not gonna buy it, but if was gonna buy it, should i have bought it despire the unfair pricing?

Spigen cases rules! Anyway the 4-th image it looks like my S4 in Neo Hibrid Spigen case. Bezels, home button, speaker they are all the same large and positioning. Strange@

LOL, that thing is freaking hidieous. Yes, it will sell alot, just like Toyotas, but not because its good, just because people blindly buy things that everyone else does. HTC One will definetly be the better phone this year, even if it doesnt outsell sammy,lol.

We all knew it was going to be a rectangle with rounded corners however the devil is in the details. Obviously Spigen made a 3D mockup sans Samsung logo for the case renders. I'll hold judgement till we see the real thing.

LOL! Samesung has done it again! Yes this is a render and the bezels will be smaller on the actual phone, but it looks the same LOL! Looks like premium plastic to. Oh boy, if this is what they release Monday, I'm going to die laughing. All the specs were nothing special to me, now this! LOL!

This could be all BS. Another manufacture has an S5 case on Amazon on a phone that looks nothing like Spigen's

I like how everybody bashes on samsung for doin' something.

Some of you are Xperia fanboys, says the phone has to big bezels. well if its waterproof its no easy task to give it a small bezel (z1)

Same design?, every year since the s3 it has a similar design not the same design.. your just to blind of a fanboy. Look at Sony,Apple,HTC.. and when it comes to any of those 3 you just say: if it aint broke don't fix it. then tell me how is the galaxy design broke? its far more comfortable than the z1 to hold or the Iphone 5/5s with the curved back.. (i'm a z1 user)

I'm not saying that any of the metioned brands are bad, just that to many of you are blind fanboys who wants to bash :p.
and no i'm not a Samsung fanboy, i'm more of an HTC fanboy ;)

Imo these are a definite fake or inaccurate renders. Why well we can hate Samsungs use of plastic or home button etc and doing same design but one thing you can count on Samsung is to have slim bezels and even slimmer bezels than previous phones. These bezels are much bigger than the s4 and even the s3. Just look at how much size bezel there is even with a case. Usually the case covers most of the side bezels but on this there's plenty of bezel with a case. Definitely a fake.

I believe spigen have got the measurements of the s5 and made there own render of how they think the s5 will look.

Honestly, I don't mind if there's no major design change. The design already works for me, I'm just in it for the camera/battery upgrades

Samsung phones aren't really my favorite, but I end up buying them because their one of the few high end phones that still have SD card support. I don't know why everyone else seems to be dropping them.

This is the cheap version of the galaxy s5 because of the bezel are bigger than the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung strategy is to make the bezel smaller every year or this is just some design for the cases

As usual from Sammy, the design wasn't stand out even it's look like a mid range phone. Sorry to say but i didn't expect much. still Galaxy Note 3 was very useful it has ergonomic design, simplicity better look and feels even it's plastic. I don't care much, in the end you'll use a protective case so aluminum vs plastic argument wasn't a matter at all.

I think i'll pass and wait for Note 4 instead.

The cases are real but Im most certain the phone is not. Those bezels are to thick compared to the S4 and Note 3

I always liked Samsung because they innovated and improved on the previous version of the phone. I hope they do something interesting and new with the S5, because if not that would make them just like Apple keeping everything basically the same for four years straight.
