Reports about Samsung's Galaxy S5 started surfacing a few months back. With the company's recent releases including the increased number of competitors, Samsung appears intent to stay ahead of the game. The Korean tech giant has been releasing products nonstop. As their Galaxy series continues to bring in success, people now turn to the fifth installment of the series. Recent concept photos suggest that people are in for a treat with the new Galaxy S5's design.
Korean news outlets have been reporting about an aluminum cover for the S5. Other sources claim that if the body can be made either of metal or aluminum. This is not clear yet as Samsung has not announced anything. Nonetheless, there are strong indications that this might be true. Sources say that the stronger or more durable choice for the body is the company's way of competing with other high end brands like HTC and Apple.
The metal or aluminum cover can add to the durability and appeal of the device.
With all the talk about aluminum and metal covers, the people at MobiLeaks revealed a new set of concept photos that should trump all previous concept images. This time the device appears to sport a classic design. So far, as a number of sources would agree, this set of concept photos about the S5's design is the most sleek and elegant looking.
From what the images show, users can see how a device they can fold into a music player. The display can be found on the back. The physical button rests above the screen right beside where the device's fold begins. This makes controlling the entire thing much easier. The idea here is a folding display phone. Instead of users flexing it horizontally, it does so vertically.
The type of screen used is an edge to edge type. This means the Back and Menu controls are subtly integrated. Likewise, the Samsung Galaxy S5 in this concept is extremely thin. The size of the device means it uses a flexible battery to make sure folding or flexing is smooth.
Other specs reported about the Galaxy S5 include a 16-megapixel smartphone camera sensor. It offers high end photos that trump the standard compact camera many handsets use.
