    Galaxy S5 Metal Casing Rumor Closer to Reality; Samsung Shopping for Metal Case OEM


    According to the latest intel to come down the pipe, Samsung is indeed working toward outfitting some product in their future with a metal case. More than likely this will be the next-generation Galaxy S5. We have word that Samsung is close to securing a contract with Catcher, the Taiwanese company that makes the metal bodies of the HTC One and the iPad. Supposedly, they have been shopping around for an OEM which can supply the metal body for “at least one of its high-end smartphone models from the second quarter next year”.

    This seems to confirm previous rumors we reported that the SGS5 might come with a metal outer shell. Additionally, there are reports that Samsung is setting up a test production line in Gumi, South Korea, and a mass production line in Vietnam. This would seem to suggest they are also close to a final design for the new phone.

    It looks like Samsung is working hard to eliminate the one thing that they have received the most criticism for, their plastic outer device cases.

    Will it be an HTC type "unibody" construction or will people be able to take the back off, like on current Samsung phones?
