Samsung in talks with metal casing suppliers, metallic S5 coming?

view story

http://www.talkandroid.com – Samsung’s wildly popular Galaxy line of phones has typically been made with a glossy plastic exterior, but is that about to change with the S5? We told you about the possibility last month, and now a report in Taipei Times further suggests this. Sources say that Samsung is in discussions with Catcher Technology, a Taiwanese company that makes the metal bodies of the HTC One and Apple’s iPad, for metal cases for “at least one of its high-end smartphone models from the second quarter next year.” The second quarter of next year is of course when Samsung is expected to launch the S5.
