Concept Phones is known for their beautiful renderings of new phones that are about to be released, before any actual photos are leaked or released. These designs are generally drawn up based on patent drawings filed by the company, in this case Samsung and were warded just this December by the U.S. Patent Office. These patents related to Samsung’s new Galaxy S5, which should be coming out sometime early in 2014 – possibly announcing something at MWC 2014.

We know from rumors that the new Galaxy S5 will be made from new materials and probably sport a 5.25-inch display. Rumours originally had a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440, but benchmarks seem to indicate a Full HD display – this is something we should find out at MWC 2014. The Concept Phone designer says the display “will be slightly curved to the right.” The frame will be made from aluminum, but the back will have the faux leather look of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Based on the patent filings, the rendering looks like it could be very close – and let us hope so as it is a beautiful looking device and something that I believe will help silence some of Samsung’s critics. My only disappointment is the size of the speaker and that its placement on the back of the Concept Phone design. Additional Galaxy S5 rumors point to a 64-bit processor, 16MP ISOCELL camera, 2MP Front Facing Camera (for video chatting and selfies), 3GB RAM, no word of if they will stick with the Snapdragon 800, but it most certainly will have Android 4.4 KitKat. There is also a rumor that Samsung will be announcing a new Exynos chip at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, a chip that could find its way inside of the company’s Galaxy S5.
Based on the patent filings they also did some concept designs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and the concept design uses a 5.9-inch edge-to-edge display, a 20MP Camera with a 3MP FFC Camera. They are guessing it will have 32GB or 64GB of Internal Storage, a microSD Card slot, S-Pen on board, all packed into a metal body.
PLEASE understand that these are simply concept drawings based on U.S. Patent filings by Samsung, but these are the closest thing we can look at until Samsung or someone else leaks some legitimate photos.
