Many would argue that the Samsung Galaxy S4 (check out Samsung Galaxy S4 here) is the best smartphone in the market. However, even these people criticise the handset for having a plastic casing. Many of the competition’s flagships such as the HTC One (check out HTC One here) and the Apple iPhone 5 (check out Apple iPhone 5 here) are clad in a more premium material, aluminium. Now, a rumour suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be clad in aluminium.

The news comes from Android Geeks (check it out here). They report, “In an attempt to find out whether Samsung is ready to fight back at its rivals with premium-looking Samsung Galaxy S5, we stretched our antennas and managed to find out that the successor of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will have an aluminium body. The information was provided to us by a trusted source close to the South Korean phone maker, who wanted to remain anonymous.”

It adds, “While we don’t have the slightest idea what Design 3.0 really means in terms of looks, we can now confirm that Samsung will start to use aluminium for its high-end smartphones, and the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be the first one to receive this treatment.”

Samsung is yet to confirm whether the Galaxy S5 will be clad in aluminium or not. Stay tuned for more on this story.
