Sanjaya Kanishka is a name that you’ve heard before associated to these concept phones. And now that 2013 is here (happy new year, by the way!), we greet you with a new concept from the same designer. This is the Samsung Galaxy S IV, in a new vision, that keeps some of the lines of the Galaxy S III, but also adds some novelty in the mix.

Strangely enough, this device seems to feature a Samsung S-Pen and it’s set to launch in April 2013, according to the designer. Keep in mind that Sanjaya Kanishka created this design based on the latest leaked rumors and information. The front side is pretty similar to the one of the Galaxy S III, but the new model has the notification light at the bottom, just like in the Nexus 4. The display here is a 5 inch FHD Super AMOLED+ one with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 and a density of 441 ppi. This screen may or may not be flexible.

Other features of the Galaxy S IV include an 8 core big.LITTLE processor, with a 2 GHz Cortex A15 quad core unit and a 1 GHz Cortex A7 quad core unit as well, plus Mali T-768 GPU. Samsung Galaxy S IV packs 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot with support for up to 128 GB and a 13 megapixel camera at the back with Xenon flash. It’s got HDR Video recording at 1080p and 30 fps. We’ve also got the usual LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean as the OS.

In tandem with Android we get the TouchWiz 6.0 UI and inside the handset there’s a 3100 mAh Li-Ion battery that would make even the Galaxy Note II jealous. So, what do you think of this first 2013 concept?
