Samsung Galaxy S5 to Showcase New Casing Materials, Possibly Flexible Display at MWC 2014

Samsung Galaxy S5 to Showcase New Casing Materials, Possibly Flexible Display at MWC 2014

We can say with 100 percent certainty that there's no way in Hades Samsung is going to suddenly discontinue its super popular Galaxy S line of smartphones. That means you can bank on there being a Galaxy S5 at some point, but what we don't know are the details surrounding the next Galaxy S release, though Samsung Vice President and Head of Design Strategy, Dong-hoon Chang, did reportedly offer up an interesting tidbit.

According to a Korean news site, Chang said the Galaxy S5 will be made out of a "new material." He also said that Samsung is currently deciding whether or not to use a flexible display on the device. We're a bit skeptical ourselves since Samsung already announced the Galaxy Round with a curved display, but nothing would really shock us at this point.

Samsung's Galaxy S5 will use a different material and might also sport a flexible display.

There's also the possibility that Samsung might release two versions of the Galaxy S just as Apple did with the iPhone 5S/5C (and is rumored to be doing with the iPhone 6). There have been rumors of Samsung launching a premium version of the Galaxy S called the Galaxy F, and that could be the one that ends up with a metal casing (instead of plastic) and a flexible display.

Either way, we'll know soon enough. Chang confirmed that Samsung will hold a Galaxy S5 press event at Mobile World Congress (MWC) next month in Barcelona.
