Images of Samsung's rumored next flagship device - the Galaxy S5, have resurfaced online, however this time the image of the speculated device shows a metallic frame for the new handset.
Going by the size of the metal casing, it appears that the Galaxy S5 may be bigger than the S4. According to the image, the frame measures 5.66 inches in height and 2.8 inches in width.
However, the image shows that the camera slot is on the side, contrary to the slot in the middle. Another notable thing in the image is that the opening for the USB port doesn't seem big enough for USB 3.0. These leaks also suggest that Samsung might be opting for metal frames, but still there is no guarantee that the leaked image points to a Samsung device at all.
Earlier it was claimed that the S5 could feature an AMLOED display sporting a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and a density of 560 ppi. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to have a 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, a feature that is missing from the Galaxy S4. It looks like Samsung will address the criticism and shift from the plastic body design to a metal body design for the S5. Samsung has already applied for a metal-bodied design patent and the S5 is also expected to have shatterproof and flexible glass as the display.
The device could be unveiled by early next year, however there is still no official confirmation from Samsung.
