So the Samsung Galaxy S4 was just released today and the media and the general public are now feasting on the number of images and articles spread across the internet. But before the great reveal, a multitude of rumours and information leaks flooded the internet with specs and images of the (alleged) Samsung Galaxy S4.

Some of this information was based on reliable sources while the rest were completely false. Those that prove to be real are of course incorporated during the official unveiling of the phone or device while those that completely missed the target, whether intentional or not, they are usually thrown out of the window and become part of a heap of irrelevant content.

One good example of these kind sof information are renderings. Usually created during the early stages of the “buzz”, concept renderings are illustrations of a rumoured device that aims to provide readers with a visual representation of the specs and design of that device. They are usually created by graphic artists who base the design on information circulating in the internet or in a few cases, a result of a wild imagination.

And throughout the years, a lot of artists have put out a number of concept renderings of various phones. So in this week’s edition of Fancy Fridays, let’s take a look at some of the cool concept designs for mobile phones.
