There has been a load of new rumors regarding Samsung’s plans to launch a successor for its Galaxy S III smartphone in the first half of the year, though none of them has been proven real so far.However, they did fuel hope in enthusiasts looking for the next-generation Galaxy smartphone from the South Korean mobile phone maker, who are already dreaming of the novelties it will provide.
Concept phones based on the leaked specs for the device have also emerged online, and the latest of them comes from designer Rahul Sharma, which proposes a new vision on the smartphone, with some changes that would certainly appear futuristic to many.
The first of them is the lack of a home button on the device’s front, one that has been a hallmark of the Galaxy series so far, but which is being replaced by a single touch sensor in this new Galaxy S4 concept.
The sensor will also light up for notification purposes, which makes it even more interesting, although it’s highly unlikely that Samsung will actually include it inside its next-gen Android smartphone.
The new Galaxy S4 concept also proposes a thin design, along with high-end hardware specifications that might very well be present inside Samsung’s actual phone when it is made official later this year.
Thus, the concept device sports a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen capable of delivering a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, while sporting Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection on top.
Furthermore, the device features an Exynos 5450 quad-core processor with a Mali-T658 GPU, as well as 2GB of RAM to deliver great performance capabilities to its users.
On the back, there is a 13-megapixel photo snapper with support for full HD video recording, as well as with image stabilization and integrated S Vision.
A 3600 mAh Li-Ion battery powers the concept phone, which also sports wireless charging, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, and other similar features present in today’s high-end devices.
Overall, the concept phone looks highly appealing, though it remains to be seen whether Samsung’s next flagship phone will indeed look anything like it, and what new capabilities it will have to offer to its users.
