According to Samsung insiders, the Korean manufacturer is looking to finally break away from their plastic roots for the upcoming Galaxy Note 3. When seeing the praise the HTC One received for sporting an all-aluminum shell, Samsung got to thinking. Apparently, even the Galaxy S4 could have sported a metal body, but time was running short and Samsung opted for the more easily mass-manufactured plastic design that is to go on sale at the end of the month.
While the insider did not give a specific material that the Galaxy Note 3 would be comprised of, it appears that they stressed it would be more metallic. So, take that however you choose. Interestingly enough, some people do prefer Samsung’s plastic over a metal body, which cuts down on weight and adds flexibility to devices.
Which do you prefer? Metal or plastic?
