A flexible Galaxy S5 concept video fuses speculation into a beautiful, aluminum phone
posted by Chris P. / Nov 25, 2013, 5:02 AM
With 2014 fast approaching, it's about time we started getting a little crazy in anticipation of the upcoming Galaxy S5, and luckily – hype is anything but scarce. Obviously, it's all mostly speculation at this point, so do keep that firmly in mind. Having said that, we could contend that a certain amount of educated guesses are... well, a little more than just guessing. Tons of splintered intel has come in our general direction, and while we're doing our best to curate that information for your reading pleasure, nothing quite measures up to a full-blown concept video.
Courtesy of the folks behind the O2 Guru TV YouTube channel, the below 2 minute odd clip is actually a pretty well put-together summary of what we know, plus some fiction, of course. Said otherwise, while a 2560x1440 display is (at this point) likely and a 16MP snapper has been speculated already, we're quite new to the idea of an LG G Flex-like bendable Galaxy S5.
In any case, the video below raises a few valid concerns with current-gen Samsung smartphones, and we sure hope the South Korean manufacturer has something a tad more sophisticated this time around.

Instead of bendable curve design,foldable design is much better.

I want to find all the people who think Samsung need to redo everything aluminium and then punch them in the face. :P

Sometimes,things are better and most advanced than you could ever imagined, and I see how clueless for your brain to bash something not even existed yet, Winner is a winner and losers gonna hate,in my opinion, haters are worse than fanboys/girls. Just be patient and it won't be so late to save your sorry ass before it is too late,we are just consumers,no need to be overly-anticipated I think.Cheers!

All samsung needs to do is to improve on Twiz and maybe a refreshed UI. We all know their hardware is already topnotch. The note 3 is a living testimony.

Instead of uping the resolution, Samsung should finally make a proper high ppi rgb OLED. What's the point of higher resolution, when the stupid pentile arrangement is used? 1080p is more than enough for a 5" screen. Just make it rgb.

At over 400 ppi you can't tell the difference between an rgb stripe and pentile, or the diamond layout on the S4 and Note 3.

I thought apple is already dying with the slipping of market share and losing customers to Android and Microsoft years by years and this 2013 is the most significant blow for them,they just need to work harder aren't they? @_@
