Samsung Galaxy S4 visual promise arrives

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.
