Samsung’s next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S IV, will likely be made out of plastic.Samsung-focused blog SamMobile reported last week that, “the sides are made from aluminium but the back is still plastic.”
This report was seemingly confirmed by Russian mobile analyst Eldar Murtazin who also says it’s going to be a plastic phone.
Nokia uses a polycarbonate body, which is a fancy version of plastic, but it feels much more solid than the plastic on Samsung’s Galaxy S III.
Samsung has done just fine with cheap plastic, so maybe it doesn’t need to change. But, for a flagship phone it seems like it should step up its materials.
