Samsung S5 .. new design.
1. Full unibody design. Choice of Metal or plastic.
2. Removal of SD slot as it will hurt unibody design.
3. Remove removable battery as it looks bad with unibody design.
4. Add biometrics (sBody scanner), eye scanner, face scanner, fingerprint scanner, hair scanner.
.. ROFL .. if its true..
I would LOVE a metal version. But why does it have to NOT have LTE? I really hope this rumor isn't true because that's not a good compromise.

But poor icrap (iPhone) users still using low ppi screen.

Nice to see you again:)
*yawn* Galaxy S5 rumors are boring. Nice try Samsung, trying to generate the same hype an attention as the iphone 6. Not a chance Samsung. No one care about the s5. the S4 was a flop compared to the s3, s5 won't save you. Galaxy s3 was Samsung peak of their power, and now they are going to face a lot more heated competition from Sony and Nokia, with actual quality products.
if its true flagship, i'll take s5 mini s805 version and if it comes in metal/plastic choice like s5, i will take plastic because its cheaper and plastic not a big problem for me. if it is not a flagship, then z1mini or z2mini(if available). by the way, please improve knox.
its just gona be like 2013 again.. nothing new at all from Samsung.. S4 turns to S5, S4 Zoom to S5 Zoom, Mini to Mini.. i bet they're gona make an 'Active' aswell
ABCDEF, 13 Jan 2014Again, Recyclable plastic material. I think Samsung new slogan is "Recyclable Plastic is ... moreThis is not the recycled plastic, but they have that. And how is that a bad thing? Are you high?
And did you seriously overlook something completely related???
PEOPLE RECYCLE GLASS AND ALUMINUM TOO

May be to catch some apple fans, that are whining for "metal" Samsung phone.
But this is not news, at all. Because Samsung made metal phone already last year, though it was only for the Japan market.(Check it out)And it was mid-range phone. Not "premium", as all zombies like to think. And it will NOT BE S5(version) as the tech media manipulate. It will be just Samsung phone with not much sale and not so big price(and not big production, because the zombies don't buy even metal crap without Apple logo- see HTC One).
Tin-can is not more expensive than the "cheap plastic" and production price of metal iphone is lower than "cheap plastic" high-end Samsung phones.(google it)
I already wrote down, that this article is just Apple advertizing, hidden behind "Samsung article". Nothing else.
Have a nice day.
The rumors of the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 offer various tidbits, but new information from an unnamed insider adds in some interesting details. The info claims that in an iPhone-like twist the Galaxy S5 will come in both plastic and metal version.
they are offering two versions because they can't make enough metal cases, not because they want to copy apple.
i love samsung but i think having more than full hd on a small screen is useless, i would prefer to have the same specs on a lower res screen because that would mean better performance and more battery life since the cpu/gpu aren't running on full load just to keep those pixels going.
to be honest for me 720p on a phone screen is more than enough but i can understand people wanting 1080p, but more than that is just pointless it is a waste of money, battery life and processing power, just to show off. but i can understand samsung and other companies doing this because they are afraid that if they don't others will and steal their sales. i don't say that they shouldn't get more pixels on phone screens but not for now at least, technology needs another year or two to have great performance on such a high ress. i get the feel that screens are advancing faster than the hardware
when the HK recieve the 4.3 ver of samsung s4 updates. samsung fanatics can w8 longer...grrr
M and M, 13 Jan 2014Well, nobody needs a rolling or folding phone either, that is just design gone wrong. What I w... moreLook to Apple and Nokia for innovation? YOUR KIDDING!
I left Nokia because they refused to move away from physical keyboards and 2.4-2.8" screens.
I left Apple because they refused to move away from small 3.5" screens and a heavily restricted OS and app store.
Having owned the Note 2 and Note 3 you can definitely notice the screen resolution and performance differences... also, the device is actually smaller, thinner and lighter with a bigger, better screen.
Wow, wow , WOOOOOW.
The iTech media are restless and pathetic.
Look at this "iPhone-like twist" Apple advertisement , with "premium 150 euro extra fee". LOL
If there is other version of S5 with cheap tin-can unibody handicap design , it will be budget device.(Samsung made already this in Japan - Galaxy J. Check it out)
I always love(laugh at) the statement about "premium, metal unibody" , and they also speak about "fingerprint scanner" on S5 . LOL lol lol
The "Experts" are never tired, to underline the supremacy of their lovely Apple.
Only that no one, but the izombies buy "premium, metal unibody" and "fingerprint scanner" with huge bezels. But , funny thing is , that they don't buy anything , without Apple logo on it.(see HTC One sales-lol)
Normal ppl will never trade swappable battery and SD for sealed cheap tin-can for smartphones. They even don't trust the cheap tin-can for denting, electric accidents, and it's feel in the hand.
Gelvin - Maximus, 13 Jan 2014Just like what iPhone is offering....Nope...
While Samsung and Apple are busy robbing their money. These fanboys are fighting over which one is the best robber.
1Stormrider1, 13 Jan 2014As mentioned earlier "flagships" should only be available with the most premium mate... moreu respect the xperia z1? PFFT SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 3 is the king of the android at the moment. You seriously need to stop having low self esteem and increase your standards. no one cares about that fake glass covered with shatter proof sticker. Sony has the worst camera phones, and worst speakers. Forever LG and Samsung!
