Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 concepts based on company's design patent
posted by Alan F. / Jan 05, 2014, 6:03 PM
Ivo Maric took the design on the patent applications and whipped up a Samsung Galaxy S5 concept based on the patent that was awarded to Samsung on New Year's Eve. Just like the sketches, Maric's phone includes a curved display on each side of the device. Jermain Smit took a different tact. He used the drawings from the design patent to come up with a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, which also features the curved display.
Concept models are just that, a concept designed by a third party based on information gleaned from leaked images and specs or based on nothing more than the designer's own imagination. You can check out what Maric and Smit came up with by clicking on the slideshow below.

These look really nice, but honestly I miss the days of softtouch phones. I LOVED the feel of my Thunderbolt, and my Droid Bionic. And honestly, the OG Galaxy Note had the best design from a Galaxy phone IMO.

For me the design is important, however I care about the feel a lot more! All of those phones had a great feel. My Galaxy S3 is overall sticky, and the plastic is kind of shifty and poorly finished. The OG Note was very basically finished, I really liked it.

Looks similar to an S4 with the Spigen Slim Armor case on lol. Well, it looks like that from back.

Concept design phones never have curved edges. Nokia N74 iTalian, German concept designs for iPhones were always rectangular sharp edges. This idear is not concept, but looks mote like Samsungs iNnovat8 series

I dared to like your comment at first because a dozens of *professional* graphic designers could jump in and laugh at my face, or even could say I'm a Sammy seeder. But on second thought, I need to be honest to vote this comment up.

Same here.. had the note 1 and now a note 3.. feels good using the note again. . I'll be getting the note 4 when it comes out.. they better keep it the same size and just make the screen bit bigger and better of course..

It would be nice if stuck closer to the look of stock Android. The Touchwiz UI looks like something a child threw together.

Or one that is clean and polished...don't get me wrong its nice to have some of the added features that you can get from an OEM's take on Android, but after a few months of using sense on the HTC One, my old GNex was quite a refreshment.
