Galaxy S4: Imagine it impossibly thin, with laser keyboard

The expectations for the next Samsung flagship phone keep getting higher and higher. A new concept video shows some potentially iPhone-killing features.

The upcoming Galaxy S4 from Samsung is already carrying the weight of the whole Android smartphone world on its shoulders, even though it hasn't been officially announced yet, and we'd be lucky to see it actually available within the next six months.

Many are hoping the next flagship phone from Samsung could finally be the legendary and long-foretold Apple eater first documented in the book of Genesis. Actually, maybe that's something else. But there's still much speculation that Samsung could pull something groundbreaking out of its huge chaebolic hat to vault ahead of the iPhone (some, including a former Apple evangelist, believe the Galaxy S3 already achieved this, but that's another argument).

It could be those fancy, flexible screens Samsung has been teasing for years now, or maybe even a "folding" screen, but it's all just wild guessing at this point. That hasn't stopped some folks in Russia from going all out with the below "render" of a Galaxy S4 that shows an unbelievably thin phone with a big screen and a laser keyboard dock.

Unless Samsung has suddenly started running their product development and marketing through Moscow and filming promotional videos with a MacBook in the background, this seems totally out of left field, but I'd nonetheless love to see someone make this phone. Do you think Samsung is working on a suite of iPhone-killing features for next year? What do you think it will include? Let us know in the comments.
