Assuming Samsung stays on its traditional schedule, we are probably about four months away from the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5, which means it is time for the rumor mill to start churning out some more interesting leaks on the device. Today, we're seeing a very interesting leak coming from France that alleges to be the metal frame for Samsung's next flagship smartphone...

Samsung will pull out some really good tech in 2014.

Apple will fail badly in 2014.

Nokia/Microsoft will be crowned "come back company" in 2014

He really needs this. He bet that Apple will sell its mobile division by 2016.

There won't be any Nokia smartphones.
They will be rebranded as Lumia.

No need of "predictions".
But Apple go down an down at every point , year by year. Compare with competition.
And you must be blind , not to see it.
If this continue ?

Galaxy S3 and S4 have thin metal frames with an external plastic case. This is so thin that if it's real, it will be no different that the S3 and S4 design. Hypebeast away.

Why should next Galaxy go bigger? S4 is not bigger than S3 , and Note 3 is not bigger than Note 2. Even with lager screens. Right?
This "premium metal" BS is just to convince izombies that they also have something better , too. Because the izombies have nothing left to brag anymore. LOL

It's getting bigger every year! The GS6 will probably be 5.8 inches. Lol.

Correction... The DISPLAYS on Samsung's flagship devices are getting more spacious whereas, though Samsung's outstanding utilization of the given space, the actual devices are either remaining almost identical in overall dimensions or often getting smaller, thinner and lighter.

It's called brilliant/innovative engineering and thoughtful design... Something that most other companies should be focusing more on rather than adding new (blingy/scratch-prone) colors and dubiously useful biometric readers that do little more than afford quicker access to OS associated app stores.

Not quite on the rumored GS5. The physical metal dimensions are clearly bigger although not by much. I do wish they had kept the same screen size as the Note 2 with the Note 3 and instead had shrunk the device (I own the Note 3). Samsung has the Note 3 to fill in the large screen market so they should probably be careful about increasing the screen much more than 5". I think most people want a big screen, they just want 1 handed use. The LG G2 pushes those limits to me so Samsung needs to be smaller (device dimensions) than that. The S is supposed to be the 'appeal to everyone' device and the Note is to be the push the limits device

Exactly. I will not buy a 5.xx inch phone. Honestly, my 5.0 S4 is too big. I will not go bigger.

No . Since few years they are NOT "getting bigger every year".
Only the displays are bigger.
No reason to believe this iRumor.
No single reason Samsung to go for the cheap the ugly "premium" tin-can, too.

I am guessing there are no complaints with the size, but when it was the Lumia 1520 there are a whole bunch of complaints.......galaxy are getting bigger every year, note 4 will be 6 inch or more soon and when that happens......I want all those same Samsung people who write Lumia 1520 so big to write the same comments......I have a feeling there will be no complaints or we hear some really good excuses, whatever the responses are, I know there will be some hypocrites that day and it will be good to see who they are
