The latest Samsung Galaxy S5 concept image packs Samsung's TouchWiz 5. After being popular in designing renders of HTC smartphones, Hasan Kaymak is now creating concept images of upcoming Samsung phones. Recently, he imagined the future Samsung Galaxy S5. Apart from the design, he also envisioned the next version of Samsung's very own TouchWiz.

In his Google+ account, Kaymak posted a series of renders showing and detailing the possible version of TouchWiz 5. There are talks that Samsung will be ditching Android 4.4 Kitkat OS in favor of Tizen OS. It is very exciting to see how the Samsung user interface will look like in the new software if rumors were true.

Based on the photos of the concept image, a brand new background color pattern and interactive notifications are on display. The render bid goodbye to the notification bar in the lockscreen. The notifications can be seen under User Picture. The rest of the app icons are the same.

Ongoing rumors claimed Samsung Galaxy S5 will pack a 2K curved screen display. The screen size will be 5.25 inches.

The latest Samsung Galaxy S5 concept image packs some of the best rumored specs and features in the device. Previous reports said Samsung is already working on a qHD screen displays with 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution. Samsung is one of the companies who are currently developing flexible screens.

Samsung Galaxy S5 is also expected to pack a 64-bit Exynos octa core processor, 16 MP ISOCELL back camera and 4 MP front facing camera, Adreno 330 GPU, Iris scanner and longer battery life. The handset is speculated to bring forth metal casing and letting go of the usual plastic body of the Galaxy S line. However, Samsung has not commented on any of these rumors.

Latest reports claimed Samsung Galaxy S5 will arrive early this year either at the Consumer Electronics Show in January or at the Mobile World Congress in February. Other reports said Samsung will launch the device in April, a year after Galaxy S4 was announced.
