Samsung Galaxy S4 visual promise arrives

By Alan Ng - Nov 9, 2012

The S3 is in the home of millions of happy smartphone owners right now, but there are already whispers emerging on what will be provided in terms of a next-generation Samsung Galaxy S4. We have already told you about some initial mouth-watering specs here, but now we have some eye candy for you to watch as well with the release of one of the first Samsung Galaxy S4 concept videos, which shows what some of the features could look like upon release.

In terms of editing quality and finesse, the video isn’t the best. But the author Bob Freking does get some great ideas across with his vision of the Samsung Galaxy S4 featuring a scratch proof and shatterproof ‘Galaxy Glass’ back casing. Perhaps borrowing one element on the iPhone 5 design in there as well, we also see a potential option for an aluminum Galaxy S4 variant as well, which sounds really nice to us.

As for hardware specs, this concept video touts a 5-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display, with an ambitious 2.5Ghz quad-core Exynos processor as well – we would really like to see this become a reality, but we doubt it will happen in time for the Galaxy S4. Elsewhere, there’s a 13 megapixel camera on board and a separate 3 megapixel front camera, with the rear sensor featuring a physical lens shutter.

One of the more interesting ideas, relates to the S Voice and Google Now features inside Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which have been reimagined and merged together. The voice client on the Galaxy S4 will be able to ‘sense’ your mood via facial features and suggest ideas appropriately without the need for a button press.

While this Galaxy S4 concept offers some nice suggestions and ideas, we think the previous leak referencing an OLED-based display sounds a lot more ideal. Super AMOLED has had its day now, it’s time to move on to the next level of smartphone display quality.

Let us know what you think of the specs and feature ideas shown in this video, and how you would improve them for your own version of the Samsung Galaxy S4.

    sumsung galaxy s3 and galaxy s4 best in the world

  • Better battery any1? Im all 4 better battery over ANY other specs! A 2.5 or 2.0 Gh quad core A15 part wud be a juice hogging monster! Samsung had better pay attention there n ya i admit 5 inches is d MAXIMUM that a device can b called a PHONE n even then 4 most ppl it’s alrdy too large 4 comfort!

    I would like to see a noticeable improvement in call quality in Samsung galaxy s4. I would also like to see at lease 200 phone number entries that can be made in Reject list, currently 30 in Samsung galaxy s2. I would also appreciate 13 mp camera with dedicated simple one wire connection input to see photos and videos on TV.

    Aluminum S4…I would be all over it like a kid in a candy store! Bring it!

    Camera Placement is stupid, and i have a real problem with this thing being 5 inches. I have an S3 now, it just fits my hands without having to strain too much with one hand, any bigger and it becomes a phablet. if i wanted one of those i would get a Note 2. im kinda getting tiered of them uping the screen size with each generation. Thats enough already. cut itout samsung you have hit the sweet spot leave it alone.

      I like the idea of a 5 inch screen, and I think many people will also feel the same way. The note 2 has sold over 3 million units in one month, and the note 2 has a 5.5 inch screen. The original note has a 5’3 screen, so in comparison, if the Samsung Galaxy S4 is to sport a 5 inch screen, then that would be the ‘new’ sweet spot.

    Looks stunning if it became reality. But wouldn’t touch it unless Touchwiz evolves to looks closer to stock like Moto’s UI. If not, then dress it up all you want but it’ll still be dissapointing

  • Archknight

    I like the backing especially the logo, the thought of being able to choose from 5 distinct appearances is a nice thought. I doubt it will look similar to the S3 when Apple is still trying to sue them over it. The front facing camera placement is awkward, why wouldn’t they keep it at the top of the phone and use that space for more screen residence. I believe that the new OLED display will be replacing the Super AMOLED display to move the phone further it’s tech supremacy. As well as the phone becoming slimmer, as the video showed. I also believe that it will move away from the polycarbonate body with the removable battery.
