With the Galaxy S5 expected to launch in early 2014, rumors surrounding the upcoming flagship device are already rolling in, though for now we still don’t know much about Samsung’s mysterious new smartphone. But that didn’t stop British carrier O2 from dreaming up the Galaxy S5 with a 3D rendering. The result is beautiful, though perhaps a bit unrealistic.
O2 imagines a device where Samsung may finally move away from plastic, instead offering an aluminum design that still includes a removable back panel. The video also shows a flexible device with a range of 30 degrees, which would give it a little flex. The imagined smartphone also boasts four front-facing speakers with a “new S-Beats audio technology.
On the more realistic side, O2 predicts a 64-bit octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, a 4,000mAh battery, a 16-megapixel rear camera capable of shooting 4K video, and a 2K HD 2560 x 1440-pixel display. The imaginary device also runs Android 4.4 KitKat with a redesigned TouchWiz UI on top.
We expect Samsung to update its Galaxy S line along these lines when it comes to most of these specs—though recent reports suggest the device could boast 4GB of RAM. As for that flexible aluminum design, we just don’t see it. Samsung is expected to stick with the Note 3‘s faux-leather plastic for the Galaxy S5, and the company recently confirmed that its first truly flexible devices won’t hit the market for at least a few more years.
