Samsung Galaxy S5 Design

Not many but little changes are expected to come up in all new Samsung Galaxy S5. Talking of the body material, we are getting mixed opinions. As per the ongoing rumors, some feel Galaxy S5 is expected to have an aluminium body and thus would compete with many HTC smartphones, whereas others are confident of Samsung choosing a plastic body with leather back cover as in Note 3.

An increase in screen size/display is also expected this time around. Galaxy S4 came up with display of 5 inch and as per the trends followed by Samsung, a 5.2 or a 5.3 (5.3 inch is more likely) inch screen is more likely to come up in Samsung Galaxy S5. The resolution and pixel density will increase accordingly.

With slimmer body and curved edges along with bigger and better display, Galaxy S5 is expected to outshine all the smartphones about to release and also the ones which have been released off-late. It would not be a surprise if we find Galaxy S5 to break all records of being the slimmest phone of all time like Huawei Ascend P6.
