Samsung Galaxy S5 ‘concept’ includes flexible 4K display

A mock-up of what Samsung’s Galaxy S5 smartphones could look like has emerged online complete with a flexible OLED 4K display that wouldn’t look out of place on a Samsung TV set.

Ashraf Amer’s concepts, published on the Concept-Phones blog, follows the many rumours that have so far been released concerning Samsung’s next high spec smartphone and comes ahead of its expected release in March or April.

The imagination of what the Samsung Galaxy S5 will look like shows a grey casing with each image drawing attention to the OLED screen that has so far struggled to be a success on the firm’s Samsung Galaxy Round smartphone.

Amer includes a list of specifications with the concept that sees one variation include a 5.25in super-flexible OLED display with a 4K resolution that has a 560ppi pixel count. It has scratch-dust glass that is water resistant up to 10m in depth and the casing itself is the long-rumoured aluminium edition that is a departure from the usual polycarbonate.

The concept includes a biometric fingerprint sensor as well as “air/iris scan gestures,” a 16-megapixel camera with low light experience on the back and a 5-megapixel snapper on the front of the device. Both cameras allow for HD video recording and have dual-LED flash with stereo speakers on the back of the device.

Under the hood there is a MediaTek 2GHz MT6592 octa-core processor with 5GB of RAM. Amer also includes a list of specifications for the polycarbonate bodied version of the device that has the same features but lacks the scratch-dust glass or waterproofing.

The company this week admitted that the device will be released later this year, alongside a new version of the Galaxy Gear, with the Korean-based firm remaining tight-lipped on whether it will or won’t include iris recognition technology.
