Galaxy S5 Design Could Look Like This

gs53

It may be quite a while before we see Samsung’s Galaxy S5 hit store shelves, but that hasn’t stopped us from dreaming up what we may see in the S4’s successor. A newly published Samsung design patent provides some insight as to what the S5 could look like.

There’s no telling whether or not any features detailed in the patent will surface in the Galaxy S5, especially since the design includes a slot for a stylus. Among the most noticeable characteristics is the absence of the physical home button that we’ve seen on the Galaxy S4 and Note 3. The device pictured in the document also seems to sport thinner bezels than the current-generation flagship, possibly hinting at a larger display.

The design illustrated in the document looks like a combination of both the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S smartphone series. The diagram includes a slot for a stylus but also features the same curved design of the Galaxy S4 and S3 rather than the boxy shape we’ve seen on the Note 3.

The patent further fuels Galaxy S5 design rumors that have been circulating the Web for months. Korean news source ET News reported just last week that Samsung has begun producing the Galaxy S5 with an all-metal body, although this hasn’t been confirmed. Other rumors have suggested that the S5 will feature a semi-rugged body that adopts some features seen on the Galaxy S4 Active.

Samsung’s next flagship is also expected to debut with 64-bit processing just like the iPhone 5s, iris-scanning technology and a quad HD 2560 x 1440 resolution display. Some reports suggest we may see the S5 as early as Mobile World Congress next month, although this seems unlikely given Samsung’s typical smartphone launch cycle.
