Samsung’s Galaxy S IV smartphone is not official as of now, though it might be formally announced sometime in March as the successor of last year’s Galaxy S III and the new flagship smartphone from the South Korean mobile phone maker.

For the time being, however, users are left wondering what the handset vendor might have in store for them with this phone, and what new design it might adopt.

One enthusiast, however, found it fit to come up with his own render of the smartphone, and coupled with a series of hardware specifications that might very well be included inside the actual smartphone when it is unveiled.

For the time being, however, the photo to the left is only the product of a user’s imagination, it seems, and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Even so, it’s still worth nothing that the aforementioned hardware specs are in line with what was previously rumored for the phone, including a 5-inch 1080p Full HD Super AMOLED+ Display (Samsung is supposedly set to kick off mass production for it this month).

Furthermore, the concept device, which borrows some of Galaxy Nexus' looks, is said to feature a 2GHz A15 Exynos 5450 quad-core processor, complemented by 2GB DDR3 RAM and featuring the ARM Mali T658 GPU.

A 13-megapixel photo snapper would also be included in this phone’s specs list, with support for full HD video recording and accompanied by a front camera for making video calls.

The phone is said to arrive in 16GB / 32GB / 64GB flavors, with a microSD memory card slot for further storage expansion. A Li-Ion 3,100 mAh battery would also be included inside the device, it seems.

With 4G LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS receiver, the smartphone would feature all the capabilities that can be found in today’s high-end devices. Furthermore, it would run under Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, with Samsung’s own user interface loaded on top.

For the time being, there’s no guarantee that Galaxy S IV will arrive on shelves with all this hardware packed inside, but we’re roughly six weeks away from an official unveiling, it seems, so stay tuned to learn more on the matter.
