    Samsung Galaxy S5 Might Not Come with Metal Case & Might Come with 16MP Camera


    We have a couple of Samsung Galaxy S5 rumors to share with you guys this morning. One is disappointing news, and the other is exciting news. First the bad news: new insider sources are suggesting the SGS5 will not come with a metal casing as was previously rumored. Instead, it appears that Samsung will be using the faux-leather plastic casing they have made popular with their new Galaxy Note 3 device. Apparently, the metal casing will be saved for their new premium product, the Galaxy F. This new report basically refutes and confirms parts of a previous rumor we reported, here.

    The other new tidbit to share on the SGS5 front is that it is likely to be coming with a 16MP camera sensor. This new camera module could be manufactured by Sony or by Samsung’s own System LSI division. Lately Samsung has made great strides in their camera R&D, so they may be looking to leverage some of their own new technology.

    What do you guys think if the next Galaxy S device comes with the leather-style wrapped casing this time around?

    I kind'f like the idea, I'm not all that crazy about a metal case, scratches easily, adds weight, could interfere with WiFi. Besides all that, many of us immediately hide our phones in a third party(sic) case.

    Same here. I always use a case, so metal constuction doesn't matter to me. I'm more intetested in the specs (display, processor, etc.) I also want a removable back cover for a replaceable or extended battery and extra storage.

    Metal cases are overrated. Dents and scratches are around for the life of the device. I also like the ability to swap batteries quickly. Metal cased phones usually have sealed in bats.
