New Samsung Galaxy S5 Concept Features Include 5.25-Inch Curved Screen Display and Aluminum Casing

A new Samsung Galaxy S5 concept image comes with a 5.25-inch screen display and Note 3's faux leather casing as inspired by the controversial patent leak.
Samsung leaked some patents last week that inspired some creative thinkers to design renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 and Note 4. Designer Ivo Maric imagined the Samsung Galaxy S5 to have the same size as Galaxy S4 but the screen size will be increased by further narrowing the bezels.
Mixed emotions may be felt as the render pictures the handset to have an aluminum casing but faux leather covers Samsung's removable battery just like Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Lastly, Ivo Maric depicts a smartphone without a Home button.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 concept image is based on U.S. Patent filings by Samsung and is not the real deal until Samsung or someone else leaks some legitimate or official photos.
According to latest rumours, Samsung Galaxy S5 release date will be held next month on or before the Mobile World Congress. Samsung's executive Dong-hoon Chang confirmed that the company will release a new flagship phone next month. However, it is most likely that Samsung will hold a separate launch for its new handset like what it did to Galaxy S3 and S4 than present it in the tech event.
Samsung is elusive in confirming the details of the much awaited Samsung Galaxy S5. However, in many occasions, the company hinted some of its possible features like qHD screen displays with 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution; 64-bit Exynos octa core processor and iris scanner.
Consumers can also expect 16 MP ISOCELL back camera and 4 MP front facing camera, 3 GB RAM, Adreno 330 GPU and longer battery life. Samsung Galaxy S5 will either pack the latest Android 4.4 Kitkat OS or the rumoured Tizen OS.
