Samsung 2013’s flagship (Samsung Galaxy S IV) will make its debut on March 14th New York. And Samsung has managed to keep a surprisingly tight lid on the Next Galaxy or “Galaxy S IV”, especially considering that the launch is just a week away. GottaBeMobile partnered with Martin Hajek to try and guess what the Galaxy S IV might look like. The result is cool-looking concept renders as you can see above.
The concept follows the Galaxy S III main design but takes cues from the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Note 8.0 . One of the major change is the almost bezel-less display – the concept fits the 4.99-inch 1080p display in just 136.7 x 64.8 x 7.9mm, that’s smaller than the Galaxy S III and even not much bigger than the iPhone 5.
Here’s a video which shows more renders behind the design choices of the Galaxy S IV concept :
Meanwhile, there’s no way to tell how accurate the Galaxy S IV concept render is – it seems a bit too aggressive with the side bezel of the screen (some really accurate software will have to recognize and ignore all the accidental touches) while being too conservative with the changes. Bezel aside it’s barely different from the Galaxy S III.
The Galaxy S IV is supposed to an 1.8 GHz Exynos 5 octa-core chipset and offer a 4.99-inch screen of FullHD resolution (resulting in 441ppi), 2 GB of RAM, and Android 4.2 out of box.
Finally, we’re only a week ahead before the official announcement, until then our only reliable source of info are the teaser ads from Samsung. The first one is out already and we expect more soon.
Be sure to check back with us next week for our full coverage of the event!
For the record: Samsung 2013’s flagship (Samsung Galaxy S IV) will make its debut at 7PM ET at Radio City Music Hall in NYC. And ofcourse, we’ll be liveblogging the event, so mark the date! March 14th in New York you’ll know everything.
