Market buzz also states that Samsung is finally getting rid of the plastic. “Galaxy S5 will sport an aluminum unibody chassis, which will be manufactured by Taiwanese-based Company Catcher,” said the report. Catcher has earlier manufactured aluminum unibody for other famous telecommunication devices like HTC One and Apple iPad mini 2.

The report also claimed that Catcher will be manufacturing between 10 million and 30 million Galaxy S5 metal unibody cases. It is also speculated that Samsung would manufacture around 8, 00,000 to one million units of the Galaxy S5 in January 2014. But as per reports, the company will increase the number up to six million units in February 2014. 

The smartphone is expected to release in March or April 2014.
