Tons of people try their hand at concept renders for future versions of popular devices, but they don’t always turn out well (nor are they always realistic). But this Samsung Galaxy S5 caught our attention because it’s something we can see Samsung doing whenever they introduce their next flagship smartphone.

The phone in the video features a curved design, except they imagine Samsung might finally ditch the plastic (and fake leather) from their current phones and adopt the metal finish we’ve all been waiting for. Samsung already did that with the Galaxy S4 Active, the rugged version of the Galaxy S4 that launched earlier this year.

Specs of the beast in the video above include a 5-inch “2K” Super AMOLED HD display at 2560 x 1440 resolution, which would give us a ridiculous Pixel density of 587 pixels per inch. They also imagine the phone will have a 64-bit Octo-Core chipset with 3GB of RAM, which is not entirely off the wall considering some top phones already sport those sorts of specs today. A massive 4,000mAh battery is envisioned, though we have a hard time believing Samsung could fit that inside the slim metal 5-inch chassis.

For the camera, a 16 megapixel sensor capable of shooting 4K HD video is on this wishlist. Other features include Android 4.4 KitKat with a new version of TouchWiz, Samsung’s “S-Beats” stereo speakers, and more. It obviously wouldn’t be wise to put your faith into any of this happening, but it’ll be interesting to see just how close Samsung gets to this concept whenever they announce their next flagship at some point in 2014.
