This metal-clad Galaxy S IV concept render should be framed at Samsung's design desk

Concept phone renderings are where the imagination can run wild and very rarely jibe with production and marketing realities at big companies, but one can dream, right..?

Manufacturers should take time to look at concept renders for them to make a phone with an excellent design

Looks nice... but the speaker design at the bottom could use some more streamlining; the angles clash.

one department in which the samsung is lagging behind others is the design department

They should start thinking about hiring some good designers into the team

Nice Concept. I would wish to see samsung s4 with some eye catching looks and premium feel. And I am 100% sure, S4 is going to beat iphone5 with a margin.

now after so much advancements and this being "2013" what i and almost everyone else wants is, 1-A real SOLID build S4, 2-Mali 658, 3- 2Gb plus RAM, 4- starting from 32GB memory 5- at least 4000mAh battery! and ofcourse better and frequent Software Updates!!!

im really pissed at sammy's all plastic s**t now! if S4 would be all plastic like before, boom, sammy will lose a very loyal customer! and im sure there would be a lot here who will agree with me!

I really dont mind the plastic like most samsung users because like the rest of the world i cover my phone with a case and screen protector.
When someone comes out with a unbreakable screen then maybe i would care but then again i might just use a smaller case or a full body screen protectors which would defeat the whole premium feel to a phone.

If this is S4 I'll give my S3 to my wife and I'll buy S4.

This is good...
I hope Samsung doesn't take anymore clues from the SIII (it's good looking too but now it's getting overused).

Um, no. I dislike this design.
Lacks the subtlety, cohesion, and attention to details.

Look at those bottom speakers, they're just too big and squared.

It would be good only if the screen would be completely black and even closer to the bezel

That's my frickin render man! I posted it on The Verge forum first, why not give some credit on me? Lol. But seriously, that's one of my artworks. Here's another two sets of my render:http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/2949/galaxysivmockup2.jpg

How many of you think S2 had a better design compared to S3?

hoping this is final, or else
bye bye sammy

this is beautiful but i don't like those speakers under the screen.
i think this design will be for note 3 because it says 3100 mAh battery.

people who feel XPERIA Z design is not BETTER THAN THIS , means they have no knowledge about what the phone is made of , whats the meaning of OMNI BALANCE and how difficult it is to make WATER PROOF , DUST PROOF , SHOCK PROOF & SHATTER PROOF phone @ 7.9 MM THICKNESS !
