Early Galaxy S 5 rumors look to an all-metal design

It was an inevitability: with Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 firmly arrived, rumors are already beginning to show up for next year’s flagship, the Galaxy S 5. Now, it may seem premature to start talking about things like SoC choice quite this far out, when we don’t really even have a strong sense of what the options will be, but today’s rumor has very different focus, looking at the GS5’s design, instead. If we’re to believe this source, Samsung could be taking a page from HTC and the One, and deliver a fully-aluminum Galaxy S 5.

This tidbit comes from an anonymous “trusted source close to the South Korean phone maker,” though we’re not quite willing to put all of our faith behind it without something in the way of corroboration. Honestly, at this early date we wouldn’t be surprised if even basic details like the choice of materials were still very much up in the air, and a metal body could easily be one of many ideas being evaluated.

That said, a big reason so many of us preferred the One to GS4 was its construction, so an aluminum GS5 might really be a smart direction for Samsung to go. Could it finally be time to end Samsung’s love affair with plastics?
