Samsung Galaxy S IV concept drools on the possibilities of the next big thing

Samsung Galaxy S IV concept drools on the possibilities of the next big thing
It’s still likely months until we see the Samsung Galaxy S IV, but talk about it has already started and once that ball starts rolling it’s hard to stop it. This time, we have a wishful concept for the next Galaxy S Android flagship and it’s a looker.

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?

so let me get this straight, this is only a concept? b/c if its not...i'll be saving my chips for this bad boy. Samsung makes good products but hopefully the Android UI matches the superb look of this phone.

Its a nice concept. But i would like Galaxy S IV to be: 4.5 Inch to 4.7 Inch (If SAMMY could fit 5 inch in Galaxy S3 size than it would be awsm) No physical button. Bigger bettery (3500 to 4000 mAh) Full HD resolution (Regular RGB matrix) Atleast 13 MP Camera with dual LED flash and 5 MP front facing camera (it would be awsm if samsung could give front LED flash with camera). Optical image stabilization, image stabilization, better low light picture quality. Faster faster faster processor. Cortex A15 2.0 GHz Quad Core... Latest Android OS. Not too much thin, it would be really difficult to hold.. Premium material (not plastic)

The good news is that if this is the Galaxy S IV, I won't have an urge to upgrade my S III

What good is it with the crappy radios they use? Oh wait most folks who buy Samsung products don't use them for a Phone they stay connected to wifi. Can we say Cheap Build plastic and more plastic. Just wait when you drop it and it busts into pieces......

Looks nice, but I'm not a fan of the physical button. Never liked it on the s3, and and not now.. It reminds me of the iphone too much. I wish they would just go back to home keys, like on the u.s variant s2.

“the most thinnest one, much thinner than Galaxy S3 & iPhone 5” I just want to make sure it won't bend easily when placed in my pants pocket when I sit down.

NONO NO. Adding a bigger battery is the lazy way to make the juice last longer. Make it 10x more efficient instead! Smaller batteries that last as long as the larger batteries on the older phones.

i just hope Samsung stick with the 4.8 screen and work on decreasing the bezel other wise the phone will lose its purpose as a phone and will be more like a new phablet , i wish instead they work on a better battery life and please get rid of the physical button its so flip phone function.

That keyboard dock is a good idea

lol, 1080p Grand AMOLED Display. xD i hope the real SIV looks nothing close to this. i hope Samsung devises a new design philosophy instead of following the "nature" theme from this past year. people weren't too crazy about it. let's go with a theme that makes it exude quality and durability. also i'm pretty sure this time the members of Samsung's design team that wanted virtual function keys will have their way this time so goodbye dumb home button. i really don't like using the buttons on the SIII.

not crazy about it? Its still outselling the iphone5. Samsung will follow the money like any good company so most likely you will see more "nature" designs.

I don't think people were buying the S3 for it's design tho. Everybody were crazy about the specs, but not too many are fond about the actual design.
