South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics is expected to launch a successor for its Galaxy S III smartphone in the first quarter of the next year, yet it hasn’t confirmed it officially.
However, following a long series of rumors and leaks on the upcoming mobile phone, we can now have a look at a concept phone that might show some of the features and capabilities the next-generation flagship from Samsung is set to sport when released.
Coming from Brazilian designer Victor Monteiro (via concept-phones), the Galaxy S IV concept device is nothing more than the product of his imagination, and might never become a commercially available handset.
However, this concept phone does pack some highly appealing features, such as the 4.8 inch “HyperAMOLED” screen that can deliver a full HD resolution and which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The Galaxy S IV concept is 6.8 mm thin, while being powered by an Exynos 5X2 chipset and packing a quad-core Cortex A9 1.5 GHz chip and a quad-core Cortex A10 2 GHz CPU, thus being an 8-core smartphone.
Furthermore, it sports a MaliX 500 MP GPU inside and is capable of delivering great imaging capabilities to its users, courtesy of a 12-megapixel photo snapper on the back.
Not only would the new device provide users with the benefits of recording videos in full HD resolution, but it would also enable them to make high-quality video calls, courtesy of a 4-megapixel camera on the front.
The concept smartphone also sports a brushed aluminum body, with Kevlar fiber protection, while being powered by Google’s latest Android operating system flavor, namely 4.2 Jelly Bean. Samsung’s Nature UI 2.0 would also be loaded on it.
Overall, the Galaxy S IV concept device does seem to be a smartphone that many enthusiasts would be looking for next year, although it remains to be seen how many of the features listed above will actually make it inside the official Galaxy S III successor.
