South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung has been long rumored to plan the release of a Galaxy S IV smartphone next year as the successor of Galaxy S III, and a new concept based on it is now available online.
Coming from Nikolai Prettner, the new Galaxy S4 concept pairs the Android platform with a new UI from Samsung, called TouchWiz 6.0 and capable of delivering features never before seen on a Galaxy handset.
The device itself is pretty impressive, both when it comes to its looks and when the hardware specifications are involved.
The handset was conceived with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED Plus flexible display capable of delivering a full HD 1080p resolution, concept-phones notes.
Furthermore, it packs a quad-core processor inside, with each core clocked in at 1.9GHz, most probably with 2GB of RAM attached to it, as well as 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB options for the internal memory and a microSD memory card slot to expand it.
On the back, the Galaxy S4 concept features a 12-megapixel photo snapper, with full HD video recording capabilities, complemented by a 4.5MP camera on the front for HD video calling.
LTE, HSPA+, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and the usual set of sensors were also included in the concept handset, along with a 2650 mAh battery and wireless charging capabilities.
The smartphone runs under Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, which has been extensively tweaked courtesy of TouchWiz 6.0, which sports S Gestures, S Voice, S Note and S Music.
The outer design of the Galaxy S4 concept includes an aluminum frame and a plastic back, all in a 7.5 mm body, slimmer than the Apple iPhone 5.
The only downside of this handset is that it is only a concept phone, and that it will never arrive on shelves. Hopefully, Samsung will include the upcoming flagship handset with some of the above specs, thus making the Galaxy S III successor a great hit.
