There were some people that have criticised Samsung for providing new handsets that were hardly any different from previous models, especially after the Galaxy S4 was first unveiled. There have been many rumours about the company using premium materials next year for its flagship handsets, but the Samsung Galaxy S5 build may share the Galaxy Note 3 design.
There will be other fans of the company that would say that the design of the latest Samsung handsets are fine as they are, and why fix it if it isn’t broken? Now a new rumour is suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy S5 won’t be using an aluminium body but instead will continue the plastic trend but will feature the fake leather back that is on the Galaxy Note 3.
If this rumour is true it may not be a bad thing depending on what the rest of the handset brings to the table, and the Galaxy Note 3 is arguably the best Android smartphone currently available and for those that want something slightly smaller the Galaxy S5 with a similar design could be the perfect fit.
Samsung may see this design as the perfect combination and middle ground between an all polycarbonate body and a metal one. We have heard that Samsung are supposedly investing in production facilities for aluminium bodies, so it could mean the production lines may not be ready in time for the Galaxy S5 and instead an all metal handset may not appear until the Note 4.
We have heard a number of different rumours recently surrounding the Galaxy S5 that have included the likes of eye scanners, and even an earlier than usual release, but just like any rumour this latest one has to be taken with a pinch of salt.
Will you still be happy if the Samsung Galaxy S5 doesn’t come with an aluminium build?
