There is no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S4 (click here for more on the Samsung Galaxy S4) is one of the hottest-selling smartphones in the market. However, some fans would like the Korean tech giant would like to see this handset clad in aluminium just like the HTC One (click here for more on the HTC One) or the Apple iPhone 5 (click here for more on the Apple iPhone 5). If you’re one of these fans, your wish may just come true.

According to Android Geeks (click here to see original 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.”

Of course, since Samsung is yet to confirm the materials it plans to use on the Galaxy S5, take this with a large dose of salt.
