Samsung is just a few months away from announcing its next flagship phone, the Galaxy S5.

A new report from SamMobile, a blog with a good record of accurately reporting about Samsung gadgets before they launch, says Samsung plans to release two new devices, one with a plastic body and one with a metal body.

The plastic Galaxy phone will cost a bit less than the top-of-the-line metal version (650 Euros versus 800 Euros, according to SamMobile.)

The report backs up a handful over early rumours about the Galaxy S5 that said the device will come in metal and plastic variants. If true, Samsung would be employing a similar strategy to what Apple used when it launched the plastic-covered iPhone 5C and metal iPhone 5S last year.

Last week, a Samsung exec told Bloomberg that the phone will launch before April and might include an iris sensor that can unlock the device by scanning your eyes.
