Samsung Galaxy S IV concept drools on the possibilities of the next big thing
posted by Victor H. / Dec 27, 2012, 5:51 AM
Some of the features like an even lighter and slimmer body seem possible, others like the laser-projected keyboard we’re plain tired of seeing - it’s not going to happen, folks.
Before we start commenting, though, you’d better first take a look at the specs and the beautifully produced concept video below. Here are the wishful specs for this S IV specs:
- 1080p Grand AMOLED Display
- 13-megapixel camera
- 2.0GHz 4 Quad processor
- Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie
- “the most thinnest one, much thinner than Galaxy S3 & iPhone 5”
- “projection Laser keyboard dock included”
The only thing that seems like a lock is the 1080p display. Looking at all other manufacturers, it almost seems like a sure fact that Samsung will also have to use a 5-inch 1080p display to be relevant.
A Samsung Exynos 5 processor also is almost certain to be inside the handset, and we’d bet on a quad-core version, if only because of the buzz word that quad-core has become. 2.0GHz, though? We doubt it as it’d be too much of a hit on the battery.
And when it comes to the camera sensor, having a 13-megapixel one definitely won’t solve anyone’s problems, what matters is the quality of the camera.
With all that, we have to admit that the concept is really beautifully made and it’s worth a look, if just for that. What are your wishes and expectations for the Samsung Galaxy S IV?

Good job, the render looks great but there are a few points I want to add: - I would like SS to use the same minimalistic look like N4 and get rid of the physical home key. - The phone should not be that thin or it will be very difficult to handle, and more battery will not do any harm. - We of course want KLP but this is unrealistic as this phone is not a Nexus, KLP may come later but not at the time of release.

agreed with everything you just said. I think screen size should remain 4.8inches. Phones need to stop getting bigger and taller and judging by this render the s4 will be much taller than the s3. The s3 is big enough IMO

The only downside of this is the bezel-less concept. The base of my thumb always accidentally touches a part of the screen whenever I try to reach out the furthest opposite side of the screen of my S3. I wish Samsung would stick on the current size of the S3 and not make it any more bigger as well.

I usually hate concepts... It just looks like someone stretched out a GS3. The laser keyboard is actually possible though, and would be pretty cool. Just please, Samsung, give us a better looking device! No more glossy polycarbonate.

I will pass on the S4 because S3 works just fine for me. That said, here's what I'd love to see in the S4: - 5'' amoled - no change in dimensions - at least 2800mah battery - 22nm octacore A15 CPU and powerVR 6 series/Mali 658 GPU - carbon fiber frame and dragontrail screen glass - waterproof body - significantly better camera with dual flash - shock resistant construction

Yeah..but except for the octacore one...i don't think they would jump straight to an octacore a15 cpu..maybe for a tablet but not yet on a phone...and if samsung follow everything u said, that phone would cost more than the overpriced phone called.........hmmm, forgot the name... Oh yeah i remembered, its the phone called the iphone, hahaha!

Yeah, I meant the 8 core big little combination.. but now I realize that's the A50 + A8 one. It is built with phones in mind specifically and will draw less power than the classic quadcore solution. Alright, I guess the Exynos 5540 can be placed on that wishlist then. As for the price.. well the use of carbon fiber could be reserved for the premium series while the base model could have magnesium frame or something. I think the galaxy s line' image is at the point where it can add a little price and still be met with an increase in demand. It only makes sense actually.
