The whispers are that Samsung Galaxy S5 might go through a ‘METAL’ (as against plastic body) makeover.
The reports coming from the firm in regards to the upcoming device suggest that this time the Galaxy line-up of devices will roll out with aluminum body. (We are elated to here that)
Stepping into the shoes of Apple iPhone 6, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z and Nokia Lumia series , Samsung Galaxy S5 , if we go by the rumor, would be stronger and sturdier.
While it’s predecessor- the Galaxy S4 , though carved out of plastic, created quite a stir in the smartphone market (thanks to it’s Smart Stay features and gesture controls)
It seems Samsung has realized that metal devices are sturdier than the plastic ones. This could be seen as a major move by Samsung in its wake to join the league of high-end, tough and durable smartphones constructed with aluminum body. If deemed true, the sharp criticism that Samsung has faced over the years for the choice of materials would come to a halt.
However, to incorporate a metal body, Samsung will have to eradicate removable back cover and the memory expansion slot, which doesn’t sound like much of a trouble, considering the durability and ability to withstand tough use that metal built will offer.
The Galaxy S5 is speculated to run an 8-core CPU with a max speed of 2.0GHz, holding Google’s Key Lime Pie or Android 5.0 software. Sporting a 5.2-inch screen, the device will embrace Super AMOLED display technology. Boasting 4GB of RAM and 128GB built-in storage, the S5 will brag a 16-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel secondary camera.
