Samsung might move away from traditional plastic design with their Galaxy Note III, chasing a more premium feel to their devices finally

Samsung to give their Galaxy Note III a more 'premium' feel, will use aluminum instead of plastic
| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: Apr 16, 2013 6:33 am

The plastic feel of Samsung's Galaxy smartphones is getting old - something I haven't liked in the Galaxy S III, or Note II, and it looks like the South Korean electronics giant is set to move away from the use of plastic in their upcoming Galaxy Note III.




It looks like Samsung might shift to an aluminum construction, and possibly go down the route of using a unibody enclosure. Considering Samsung has been outselling all major competitors in the market with their plastic design, there's no need for a change. Unless they're not enjoying the premium look and feel of competitors' devices like the iPhone 5, HTC One and Sony Xperia Z.


Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S4 still includes a plastic design, so it'll be interesting to see if they provide the Note III with their aluminum design first before shifting it over to the Galaxy S5 - can you believe we're already talking about that? No, I can't either.
