After a couple of new design patents have been awarded to Samsung on the last day of the previous year, a couple of new smartphone concepts have emerged imagining what the future Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4 would look like in case Samsung would actually use the design shown in those patents.

U.S. patents No. D696,654 and D696,654 describe “ornamental designs” for a handheld terminal and an electronic device, respectively, and have been both awarded to Samsung in the U.S. on December 31, 2013. Just like with other design patents, the fact that Samsung has been awarded these patents doesn’t mean the company will indeed make mobile products that will look like the devices described in them.

However, in case the company did pursue these designs this year, this is how the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 could look like, according to two designers.

Ivo Maric came up with the following Galaxy S5 concept that proposes a smartphone with a curved display on the sides (or at least on the right side, which is what a patent suggests), which would let users place handy shortcuts on the side of the display – check out the gallery below.

Jermain Smit came up with a similar concept, although the patents inspired him to create a Galaxy Note 4 model based on Samsung’s design ideas. The Galaxy Note 4 imagined by Smit also features a curved display, just like the Galaxy S5 model above.

We’ll remind you that these concepts have nothing to do with actual Samsung products that will be unveiled later this year. The Galaxy S5 is expected to be announced at some point around MWC 2014, according to a Samsung exec, while the Galaxy Note 4 will probably be unveiled around IFA 2014 in September.
