    Samsung Galaxy S5 Might Not Come with Metal Case & Might Come with 16MP Camera


    We have a couple of Samsung Galaxy S5 rumors to share with you guys this morning. One is disappointing news, and the other is exciting news. First the bad news: new insider sources are suggesting the SGS5 will not come with a metal casing as was previously rumored. Instead, it appears that Samsung will be using the faux-leather plastic casing they have made popular with their new Galaxy Note 3 device. Apparently, the metal casing will be saved for their new premium product, the Galaxy F. This new report basically refutes and confirms parts of a previous rumor we reported, here.

    The other new tidbit to share on the SGS5 front is that it is likely to be coming with a 16MP camera sensor. This new camera module could be manufactured by Sony or by Samsung’s own System LSI division. Lately Samsung has made great strides in their camera R&D, so they may be looking to leverage some of their own new technology.

    What do you guys think if the next Galaxy S device comes with the leather-style wrapped casing this time around?

    I don't honestly think the back of the phone makes that much difference. I think that most people will throw a case on it immediately, to give it some protection, so the back would be covered up anyway.

    Good point, but I do like the look of it. I like the sound of a new high end Galaxy F. Can't wait for more details.

    Oh, I agree 100% - that metal back is very cool looking - but is it removable. to access the battery?
