Samsung may ditch plastic panels next year in favor of metal ones

Samsung logoThe Samsung Galaxy lineup has taken the smartphone world by storm, but for the past two years the Koreans have been subjected to heavy criticism over their preference of plastic panels. If latest rumors are to be believed, though, this might change next year.

According to the latest reports coming from Samsung's homeland, the manufacturer is planning on changing the Galaxies design and switch from plastic to metal. There were some earlier rumors about Samsung showing interest in carbon fiber too.

The most likely candidates to replace the plastic are aluminum and magnesium. The new design and premium shells will premiere with the top of the line devices and then carry over to cheaper models. This means the new design language will probably debut with the Galaxy S5 next spring.

It is also rumored that Samsung is already working on new designs and is testing new materials in its factories in South Korea, but also exporting some of the work to Vietnam.

We hope those rumors turn out the correct, because it is really the time Samsung brought its design to the level its software and hardware has reached. Still at this point you would do weel to take all of these rumors with a healthy pinch of salt until we get some actual confirmation.
