Samsung Galaxy S5 to be clad in aluminium, according to report

The Samsung Galaxy S5, successor of the Galaxy S4 flagship, will be clad in an aluminium casing, according to a report.metal-samsung-galaxy-s5

The report comes to us from Korean newspaper ET News and translated by PhoneArena. According to PhoneArena, “All Samsung Android phones currently look alike. Plastic, sharing a same rounded-edge square form, with buttons all located identically – all, from the very bottom with the Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo to the highest heights with the Samsung Galaxy S4. This might change altogether next year when Samsung is rumored to kick off a new design language for its handsets, according to Korean publication ET News. Samsung 2014 phones may use magnesium, aluminum and metal in their body, instead of the now traditional polycarbonate.

“The most likely candidate to kick off that redesign? The Samsung Galaxy S5, of course. The redesign is expected to first land on premium models, and slowly trickle down the line to more affordable lines.

“Samsung is allegedly working on the new designs and materials at its factory in Gumi, South Korea, and some of the work might be carried out in Vietnam. All this is based on whispers about a big group of Samsung engineers dispatched to Vietnam.”
