Video: new Sony Xperia Z2 and Samsung Galaxy S5 concepts will leave you wanting for more
Both Sony and Samsung will likely unveil their next-gen flagship Android smartphones pretty soon. We’re all assuming that they’d be called Xperia Z2 and Galaxy S5, respectively, although Sony and Samsung might surprise us with different names. Regardless of that, the two handsets will definitely be direct competitors in the high-end segment of the market.

We’ve already seen concept designs showing the Galaxy S5 and the Xperia Z2, but there are new ones out there that are definitely worth a look.

First, let’s see the latest Samsung Galaxy S5 concept, made by T3 (in 3D, no less). In T3’s vision, the S5 won’t be a radical departure from the Galaxy S4. However, they’re expecting it to have an aluminum body, and very thin bezels around the (rumored) 5-inch Quad HD display. They’ve put Samsung’s new Magazine UX (officially revealed on the Galaxy TabPRO and Galaxy NotePRO) on the S5 - and that does look good. Check it out in the video embedded below.



As for the new Sony Xperia Z2 concept, this was made by Jermaine Smit. He's hoping the smartphone will have a 5.2-inch display, a "wrap-around-screen message indicator", 3GB of RAM, a 23MP rear camera, a 2.5MP front-facing camera, and an ultra-thin body. You can see the Z2 concept in the video and photos below.




We’re not sure which of the upcoming smartphones will be announced first. But we’ll certainly let you know when we find out. Anyway, assuming that both handsets will be similar to these new concepts, which one would you rather get?

Yea...If only the real model looks at least half as good as the concept ones...!

Still annoys me how random people from the Internet are able to create 10x nicer designs than the real phone design teams. Teams who are supposedly experts in their field and are getting paid extremely well to create the next generation flagship phones. I wish Samsung and others would grow some balls and stop with all the worry about "design language" changes and just make a damn phone that everyone wants. It shouldn't be too hard. T3 nailed it and they didn't need years of debate and definitely did NOT have the countless budget that Samsung has.

they also didn't need any physical constraints to HAVE all those goodies in them & keep it in a decent price range...

From what we have already seen, the real thing will be really close to this. Actually the upper bezel will be slimmer in reality. Only the thickness cannot be so slim, because of the big lens.

Me too... but hmm... do all premium handsets need diamond cuts to look premium? It's a bit iPhone 5/5s copy. I must admit, with the diamond cut Apple found out again something really unique to make their handsets look expensive, but that means that as soon as others try to implement it, they look like they copy Apple (HTC, I'm looking at you).

LOL! At the beveled edges. It's basically an s4 with iPhone materials lol! Sammy still eating that Apple sauce.

Hopefully the s5 DOES NOT look like that. Ewww!!! Couldn't care less about sony though.

13. ArtSim98

And why is that you couldn't care less about Sony?

Not required to answer you dude.

17. ArtSim98

Posts: 3535; Member since: Dec 21, 2012

You're right. But that suggests that you don't have any reason to not to care about Sony. So in other words it suggests that you're a blind hater of Sony.

Thank you, cuz I definitely have no value for yours. It's a beautiful thing, when you truly DGAF what people think. Keeps the stress, and blood pressure low.

I think living in the US and not caring about Sony Mobile makes sense; their presence there is negligible, I guess. But on the other side of the Atlantic they are doing very well, and the latest line-up (let's say from 2013 onwards) is starting getting back it's 'Sonyness'. I think their last fatal error was the horrible TN screen of the Z and Z1. Now that they are correcting this, they are definitely the advanced, premium smartphones that one would expect by this brand name.

Well put my man, you clearly understand the difference between blindly hating, and not caring. I've demo'd several sony phones, and they look nice and work well...simply don't have an interest in sony. Much like I don't have an interest in moto, although they make really nice phones. The 3 handset makers that float my boat are #1. Apple #2. Samsung #3. HTC, in that exact order. I don't blindly hate anything, other than liver.....geeeesh that horrible smell when my mom would cook it. +10 for seeing where I'm coming from. I really have nothing to say to artsim98

Now I just wonder why darkkjedii couldn't say that.
