South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung has yet to confirm any plans on bringing to the market a successor to the Galaxy S III next year, something that enthusiasts are already eagerly waiting for.

Following various rumors that the smartphone might indeed be unveiled in February next year, recent reports suggest that the manufacturing process has already been kicked off, and that the phone will be ready for marketing at the end of the first quarter of 2013.

These details cannot be confirmed for the time being, but we can have a look at the concept device that designer Ben Ling has come up with.

As an added bonus, Ben Ling also imagined how the Galaxy S IV mini smartphone would look like, and has pictured it next to the Galaxy S IV, as can be seen in the photo to the left (courtesy of concept-phones).

Just as one might have expected, the new concept phone representing Galaxy S III’s successor features a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED Plus TFT display, with Gorilla Glass 2 protection on top of it.

The smartphone was also conceived with a quad-core 1.9GHz processor packed inside, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB / 32GB / 64GB of internal memory.

On the back, the smartphone sports a 13-megapixel photo snapper with support for 1080p video recording. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean would be loaded on this device, the designer suggests.

As for the Galaxy S IV mini, it sports a 4.55-inch touchscreen display, also Super AMOLED TFT, capable of an HD resolution. It is powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, also complemented by 2GB of RAM.

The smaller device sports only an 8-megapixel camera, but features a 2,100 mAh Li-Ion battery inside (compared to a 2,500 mAh inside Galaxy S IV). Samsung’s TouchWiz UI will also be included on these devices.

Unfortunately, although the above specs seem highly appealing, they are attached only to concept phones, and not to real devices. Hopefully, it won’t be long before Samsung confirms both smartphones, and similar capabilities are unveiled.
