Samsung Galaxy S5: Alleged Metal Frame Spotted in the Wild, Hints at Exceptional Build Quality


Over the past few days, everyone seems busy talking about what to expect from Samsung in the coming months. With the global debut of Galaxy S5 pegged for late February, gossipmongers are busy spreading rumors the way they generally do. Today, the latest rumor from France allegedly talks about a metal frame that could be used in the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Don't jump into conclusions yet, since it is unknown whether the Galaxy S5 would have a metallic body or not. The leaked pictures of Galaxy S5's metallic frame were given to Nowhereelse.f by a source who is closer to Samsung's subcontractor in-charge with production of the Galaxy S5. Moreover, a metallic frame does not mean that Samsung is seriously planning to craft the Galaxy S5 from premium materials. The metallic frame can be used in plastic panels also.

The metallic frame pictured measures 143.8 x 72.3mm, compared to 136.6 x 69.8mm for the current generation Galaxy S4 and 151.2 x 79.2mm for Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Thus, it seems that the Galaxy S5 would have a larger display than the Galaxy S4. Moreover, Samsung has also changed the positioning of a rear-facing camera. Also to be noted that a 3.5mm headphone jack is at the bottom.

Back in September, ETNews reported that Samsung would announce a super premium range of flagship devices, dubbed "Project F". The first premium handset under the "Project F" would have a 16MP rear-facing camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), a full metallic body and Octa-Core Exynos 5 processor. The unknown handset will be expensive than the Galaxy Note 3 and will be produced in limited numbers.
