Its Just the back cover. They now have back covers that replace the existing S5 cover and battery with a 7500mha battery for $45. There is even downloadable 3D printed covers for the S5 now. Just one of the many perks owning an S5.

Seems pretty fake. You can get such covers for $10 on ebay.

Samsung is pretty good at keeping design secrets of its flagship these days. I doubt if we'll ever see anything until few days from the announcement.

First of all it smells fake, second it doesn't look like a metal, it looks like a glossy plastic.

Best phone just got even better? I like plastic on S5 though...removable storage + mSD card. Let's hope Samsung doesnt skimp out on that moving to a new material although the nice premium feel is definitely welcome :P

Just changing the material isn't everything. I think the biggest flaw of SS devices is the design itself. Then the finish of the material. Plastic doesn't have to be ugly, but SS makes sure they keep it ugly...
