A new report from South Korea says that Samsung’s Vice President and Head of Design Strategy Dong-hoon Chang revealed various Galaxy S5-related details in an off-the-record discussion with reporters. Strangely though, these details have been published.
Furthermore, the exec revealed that a “new material” is considered for the handset, without saying what it was, therefore it’s not clear whether the phone will be made of metal or not. Considering that the Galaxy S4 had a Galaxy S4 Active brother, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a Galaxy S5 Active this year as well.
Finally, the VP apparently also said that the use of a flexible display for the Galaxy S5 is “under review,” although we’d certainly be surprised if the handset will indeed pack such a screen. Several reports have revealed that neither Samsung nor LG can manufacture flexible display at a large enough scale to equip flagship devices. However, it may be possible for Samsung to create a special curved Galaxy S5 version later this year, although that’s only speculation from our part at this time.
We’ll remind you that while this report certainly sounds interesting, nothing is confirmed just yet, so don’t be surprised to see more Galaxy S5 rumors to arrive in the following weeks/months.
