Before I go any further, I want to point one thing out right away: this is NOT real. The device you see in the video below is only a rendered concept made by a group of Russians with great imagination. That said, if Samsung were to announce the Samsung Galaxy S4 today and this is what they put before us, we would have absolutely no qualms.
This beautiful “hands-on” video was put together by the folks behind the rozetked YouTube channel, and it dares us to imagine a phone with the following specs: a 2GHz quad-core processor, an 1080p Grand AMOLED display, a 13 megapixel camera, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie and more. Hey, if you’re going to dream then why not dream big, right?
Even more interesting is the “projection laser keyboard dock,” a docking station that can beam a keyboard layout to whatever surface it’s sitting on and be typed on as if you had a real keyboard sitting in front of you. This sort of technology is in R&D by several companies so it’s not far-fetched or too unrealistic for our tastes. I can’t say I see Samsung coming to market with an accessory like that, but if the technology is there then why not stock it into a fake concept video?
Wishful thinking aside, the device shown will probably end up being close to Samsung’s in terms of design. It’s not hard to predict that considering the Galaxy S line has enjoyed the same base design since 2010. Middle button? Check. Big, beautiful display? Check. Attractive curves and the thinnest body you can have? But, of course.
We’ll have to wait on official word from the head honchos at Samsung before we start making any assumptions, though, so we’ll let 2013 bring us the goods once they’re ready. Go ahead and hit that nice, big play button up above.
