Samsung finally change gears and introduce a metal chassis smartphone

Digitimes cites Taiwan-based chassis makers, who claim that no metal-alloy chassis manufacturers have received mass production order from Samsung. The report further reveals that the South Korean handset maker is still considering about adoption of metal chassis for its devices. The report also informs that the usage of metal chassis body for devices would increase production cost for Samsung and that could even affect the prices when the smartphone hits the market.

Samsung, which has been using plastic material for its devices, was rumoured to finally change gears and introduce a metal chassis for its next flagship smartphone. However, it seems the South Korean maker will again use plastic material for its next flagship smartphone, thought to be dubbed Galaxy S5, instead of the metal chassis rumoured for quite some time, if a new report is to be believed. It is worth pointing out that Samsung has been one of the top smartphone vendors with its plastic Galaxy phone models, and considering a metal chassis is likely unnecessary for the company. The report speculates that Samsung will likely adopt materials like plastic or carbon plastic for its smartphones to save production costs.

Rumoured specifications of the alleged Galaxy S5 include a 64-bit Exynos chipset or a Snapdragon chipset; 3GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel camera, a 4000mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UI on top. A recent report suggested that Samsung Galaxy S5 might come with a 2K display and eye-scanning sensor. Not too long ago, a GFXBench listing had revealed a device codenamed Samsung SM-G900S sporting a screen resolution of 1440x2560 pixels (2K).
