While we are still seeing a frequent amount of spec rumors for the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4, one area that still remains a mystery is design and the next-generation look that the next Galaxy S successor will adopt. This week, we have a new render to show you, which gives you an idea on how a Galaxy S4 phone may look like when using metal materials.
Like most pre-release smartphone renders on the internet though, the authenticity of this latest Galaxy S4 design is very much in doubt. There were initial rumors on this being an official look at the real Galaxy S4, but since the picture has been circulating over the last few days, the general consensus suggests that this could just be the work of yet another Photoshop artist.
It does look pretty though. Using metal materials on the Galaxy S4 would certainly be an interesting move by Samsung and compared to the Galaxy S3 design it is almost a complete revamp in all areas. Specifically, we see the fact that there is no physical home button in sight and the display screen is near edge-to-edge based with just a slight bezel border in view.
The big emphasis on curved design from the S3 has gone as well, replaced by a more rectangular feel but still retaining curved edges from top to bottom. The speaker grills have now been exposed at the front of the design as well, which would be a bold look in our opinion. We would like to see some Beats Audio style partnership with another company if Samsung really are planning to place the speakers at the front in this way.
Along with the render, there is also a list of specs that are thought to be coming along with the handset. We see rumored features such as a 13 megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, MicroSD expansion, Gorilla Glass 3, a 3100mAh battery and a 5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display. One notable point of interest though is processor, as there is a quad-core Exynos 5450 processor listed, rather than the new Exynos 5 Octa processor which was previously thought to be up for consideration on the S4.
Then again, this is likely to be an unofficial image don’t forget which means that the specs are bogus. We do like the idea of using metal materials on the device though. Take a look at the image for yourself and let us know if you would be happy with a metal-based Samsung Galaxy S4 or not.
