Galaxy S5 specs and features imagined in concept video

by: Chris SmithNovember 21, 2013

There are many interesting Android handsets in stores already, but that doesn’t mean we’ll stop daydreaming about future flagship devices from leading Android device makers, including the upcoming Galaxy S5.

We’re still relatively far away from the Galaxy S5’s launch, but the first rumors are already coming in. However, today we’re going to take a look at a short concept video that imagines the design and specs of the 2014 top Samsung handset.

Published by O2 Guru TV, the video above proposes a Galaxy S5 that’s features a flexible display, an ultra-slim aluminum flexible body, a large almost bezel-free display, and lots of interesting internal components. Not to mention that the physical home button is also removed.

While it may sound too good to be true, at least on paper, the Galaxy S5 concept certainly looks like the kind of Android smartphone we may see in the not-too-distant future.

Here’s a quick list of what the Galaxy S5 proposes in terms of specs:

  • 5-inch flexible 2K HD Super AMOLED display (2560 x 1440 resolution and 587 ppi)
  • flexible chassis – up to 30 degrees
  • 64-bit octo-core processor
  • at least 3GB of RAM
  • 16-megapixel camera with 4K video capture support
  • quad front-facing speakers with S Beats audio technology
  • 4000mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat with next-gen TouchWiz on top

When the Galaxy S4 was unveiled back in March, Samsung said that it listened to consumers when designing the phone – let’s hope it’s watching now as well.

What do you want to see in your Galaxy S5 next year?

    “Octo” core? :P

      • SeraZR™

        o.O Thanks i guess :)

    • gommer strike

      This warrants an “OCTO CORE, B1TCHES!”

  • MasterMuffin

    Not happening! :D

  • Jose Luis

    This is very possible

  • Leme

    For only 10000 dollars.

    • Balraj

      Looks like it’s a lg g flex hybrid….

      • Rajvir Singh

        If HTC One and LG G flex had a child, it would look pretty much like this “concept” phone!! LOL

    • healthydose

      smartphone prices are getting crazier these days

  • Mystery Man

    Only 4000mah?

    • Rajvir Singh

      MOAR, need moar mAh’s Dammit!!

  • George Av

    the flex screen won’t happen. Not on a flagship. Also fuck 64bit i want a tegra 5 or s805

  • Kishu

    My Points:-
    1) It wont have a flexible display because they dont wanna destroy the galaxy s series if the flexible display isint good enough… So There will b a Flexible display but with another name not the S5.

    2) New gen snapdragon 805 can record and support 4k playback so it is possible to have 4k screen but that will be too much… 2k first I suppose.

    • Matthew Brown

      I agree! Definitely a Galaxy Flex or Galaxy Curve is coming not a Galaxy S5 with flexible display.

      • poop

        Why not Galaxy Round 2? The Round is obviously setting the stage for what we know is coming.

    • Colby Leong

      Wasn’t there a rumor that they might waterproof the phone like Sony? Instead of making something like the Active S5.

    • hoggleboggle

      The note 3 already supports 4k recording and playback so that wouldn’t be anything new.

      • SContrerasMer

        The Note 3 has 4k recordind, not Playback

        • hoggleboggle

          well it has no problem playing back that recorded 4k footage so it seems to be able to do both.

    • shabaaz khan

      so true :) but the new release of samsung is the galaxy round :D

  • mixedboi85

    I’ll buy it …. if it is TRUE!!!

  • brandon

    Change the beats audio to like bang & olufsen audio with(96KHz/24Bit)support

    • phantomsofthedesert

      I must have missed that, was Dr Dre beat audio to be included ?

      • Alex Fischer

        You are better off buying a gun from Dr.Dre than beats audio.

  • samsunger

    those specs and still laggy as always

    • SContrerasMer

      it’s not kaggy, it has too mny animations that you can turn off at will

  • David Rutla

    Looks like someone is using the G-flex design. There goes that conglomerate lack of innovation.

  • systemupdate

    just make it metal so others will shut up! but i like the concept.

  • phantomsofthedesert

    i think Samsung should temporally suspend the Galaxy S5, until they can fix up their issues with their software update. very poor customer service is not going to help Samsung remain the #1 mobile phone maker and their flagship phones whether its Galaxy 1, 2,3,4 or even the new one this is very poor, not even dare I say apple. they don’t have software issues that reflex poorly on them. updates need to be done at least half yearly , not 18 months then its removed because there are problems with it. Samsung if your listening. “measure twice, cut once”

    • Yuri

      Agreed 100%

  • Brian Dong Min Kim

    I don’t really think that samsung should work on their hardware as much, but the material usage is the key. I heard they’re using carbon fiber to manufacture phones in the future… I hope that’s true. I hate the glossy backings after using the note 3.

    • SSDROiD

      I know, right? Note 3 is the best Samsung device so far!

  • HitokiriX

    Um I’m down with everything except the loss of the physical home button. I love having it.

  • systemupdate

    if it has the flex thing, it might be the other way; just saying because Round has the other way. but this one also works.

    as if we need our phones to flex! lol.

  • Data

    My God.

    • SSDROiD

      He is unfortunately too busy right now, but sends his regards. I’m his assistant, would you like an appointment?

  • wat

    I hope it’s this beautiful, There was a concept render of the s4 which was amazing and way better than what they released

  • thartist

    Like all this anticipated concepts: stupid.

  • birthoftheogs

    I’ll take my full-size screen, thanks. I really hope Samsung keeps their physical button; virtual buttons do not do it for me.


    Highly doubt it. But if it’s true, then YAY! That means the Samsung GALAXY Note 4 must rock even more incredible hardware + software when that’s due for release. But again, I doubt these are the real specs.

    Too Good To Be True.

  • hoggleboggle

    Aluminium would be a very poor choice for a flexible case as it has a very poor toughness Factor (the ability to withstand repeated bending) it would have to be titanium or steel or a plastic of some sort. There would also be the problem of sorting out how to make the battery bend as well.

  • Jav11 .

    this is what I dreamed of hopefully it happens

  • Erik George Maas

    I would like to see a new visual design for touchwiz. I know that’s not a big thing but the program icons have been around for a while. A fresh new visual would be a great addition to an already awesome phone.

  • Taylor Dall

    Ah, how will they make Aluminium bend 30 degrees in a reversible fashion… and how are they going to implement a 2K AMOLED display @ 5″? Samsung could only just get 1080p out of 5″.

  • IDontKnowMyName

    Only thing I see beneficial in there is the battery if it were true. But no way S5 will have that considering the increment from S2 to S3 to S4

  • James

    This is all well and good but my biggest gripe will be if they actually do pull the trigger on an aluminum chassis, it better not be unibody. There have been metal phones before that have removable batteries and I expect Samsung to be wise enough to keep that option along with the aluminum chassis should they actually do it that is.

    That is one of the biggest selling points of the galaxy lineup hardware-wise. The removable battery is almost exclusively unique to Samsung in terms of flagships. Make it aluminum but don’t sacrifice the beauty of a removable battery in the process. If they do it better be well over 4,000 mAH. Maybe something in the range of 5,600 mAH might do it but to pack a battery that large into a phone that Samsung will surely (in accordance with smartphone trends) be trying to make even thinner than the Galaxy S4 seems highly unlikely.

    I love my Galaxy S4, coming from 3 past iPhones I can honestly say that the S4 has been the best smartphone I have ever owned BY FAR, I am currently waiting on the S5 to use one of my T-Mobile upgrades but should they make it a unibody metal phone with anything less than a behemoth of a battery then I will be taking my business elsewere, HTC or Sony perhaps?

  • Gator352

    Just a concept folks. Nothing to see here. You know when the S5 releases, it will look nothing like this and/or not have the specs rumored. I love Sammy but so far the rumors surrounding their phones have only been half correct.

  • Bouffard

    Or you can just wait for the Nexus 6 as LG stated they are going to be one of the big names for smartphones in the future and their team with Google is only getting better. Nexus user for life now.

  • maroon1

    I hope it has 5.2 inch like LG G2

  • Yuri

    I would love S5 to look like this and have all that in there. I have S4 and iPhone 5S for work but I would buy this one as soon as it would come out as long as it will all be true.

  • Adir Feijo

    If the specs are real, WOW!!!

  • link-to-the-past

    That way we will have a samsung galaxy s5 zoom two months later …:)

  • peter

    What about replacing the speakers with Bose and proper loud volume.definitely keep the option to enlarge the sd slot.perhaps an aluminium body in black.and keep the home button…..

  • ThomasTL

    If theses sepcs are real, The galaxy s5 will be the best phone ever. Hope to see an iris scanner too ;)
