While most simply wait around for a company to unveil its next flagship device, some make themselves busy with cooking up concept designs for those devices, often giving us a look at drool-worthy designs and concepts that are never actually realized by manufacturers. Well, the folks over at O2 Guru TV have released a Galaxy S5 concept that’s one of the better ones we’ve seen – the concept shows off a device that’s rather oval like Samsung’s recent devices, but is curved at the top and bottom.

Yeah, the curved display on the Galaxy Round and recent rumors of Samsung using a wraparound display on the Galaxy S5 are probably why the concept comes with a curve as well, but the overall result is one of a rather attractive smartphone. The concept S5 is also made of aluminium, and the specs are once again inspired by rumors and speculation – there’s a 64-bit octa-core chipset, 3GB of RAM, 5-inch Super AMOLED display of 2560×1440 resolution, 16-megapixel camera capable of 4k video recording, a gigantic 4,000mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat underneath a newer version of Samsung’s TouchWiz skin (read: more attractive version).

Again, fan-made concepts are hardly ever realized, but then again, no harm ever came from wishing for something, right? Check out the concept Galaxy S5 in the video below, and let us know what you think of it!
