Now that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 is launched, the focus has now shifted towards the Korean company’s next flagship phone – the Samsung Galaxy S5. Samsung mostly follows the yearly release cycle, which means the Galaxy S5 will not be seeing the light of the day anytime soon, but still whenever we come across a gorgeous looking concept, we think that it’s worth sharing.
Galaxy S5 Concept
Here’s a concept of the Samsung Galaxy S5, prepared by GalaxyS5info, and the most amazing part about this concept is that it comes with a flexible OLED YOUM Display of 5.3-inches in size. According to the blog, this “display technology will change the way you use the smartphone.” But that’s not all, as the screen is also extended on the side, thereby removing any physical buttons from the side. The buttons for volume control and camera will be touch sensitive.
Coming to the home button, then it would also be touch sensitive eradicating the need for any physical home button. Samsung has always religiously followed the tradition of placing a physical home button, but this concept’s home button is touch sensitive, and glows.
Galaxy S5 with aluminium unibody
The Galaxy S5 concept has an aluminium unibody construction, with waterproof and shockproof body. The power button will also be touch sensitive, with a glowing led for notifications, missed calls, mails and more. The profile switcher button will help users to customize the device into two modes – performance mode and power saver mode.
Now, coming to the specs of the Galaxy S5, it would be powered by a 2GHz Exynos 5 OctaCore processor and 3GB RAM. It would have a 16MP Carl Zeiss lens with Samsung’s own S:Vision sensor, and the front camera would be of 3.2MP which will shoot videos in 720p.
As per the concept, the Samsung Galaxy S5 would come with three different storage options – 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. For those concerned about the battery, then the phone would have a 3200mAh Li-ion battery which will give 50% more life compared to the current Galaxy S4. And yes, it would be running on the newly announced Android 4.4 Kitkat.
The concept overall seems amazing, but flexible display, really? I don’t think that we’ve become so technologically advanced that Samsung will be building the Galaxy S5 with a flexible display, and but just in case if it does, then it would be impressive.
