Eldar Murtazin: Galaxy S IV is built from plastic

Russian analyst Eldar Murtazin reported that the Galaxy S IV is built from plastic. Murtazin claims that he has already seen the Galaxy S IV and it will feature a similar plastic build like its predecessor… Earlier, SamMobile reported about the build quality of Samsung’s new Galaxy S. Murtazin ended his blog post telling us that plenty of Samsung’s partners/carriers have already seen the Galaxy S IV behind close doors at the Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona.

But is this information really special?
Not for us, it is normal to show your partners a few new upcoming products before the actual launch.

We can’t wait to see the Galaxy S IV unveiled in New York city coming March 14th.
The Galaxy S IV is rumoured to feature an Exynos 5 Octa (8-Core) CPU, PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU, 4.99″ SuperAMOLED Full HD Resolution Display, 2GB of RAM, 13 Megapixel Rear facing Camera capable of shooting 1080p Full HD Videos at 30FPS, 2 Megapixel front facing camera capable of shooting 720p HD Videos and run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.

My xperia Go has a rubberized plastic backing plate. I have zero issues with it. It’s perfect for me as I don’t to cover it up with an ugly phone cover / case. What’s the point of buying a thin phone just to put some ugly phone cover over it? Makes ZERO sense. Yes, it would be PIMP to have an all metal built like the Galaxy Tab 7.7. However, I am forced to use a bookcover case to protect it from dings and scratches. I will not buy the S4 howver, as a 5″ screen is way to big… Read more »

A plastic build doesn’t bother me in the least. Let’s put it this way – I’m still rocking a Galaxy S Vibrant. It’s unlocked, been around the world – sitting on a car’s dash through 50*C deserts in the Middle East to -50*C winters in Canada (not exaggerating in either case), dropped on concrete from roughly 6ft up (before buying my $25 silicon case) and BTW, it still has no screen protection since buying the phone just days after it’s launch. It’s still ticking strong with the exception of a couple of recent hiccups this winter, and I simply chalk… Read more »

first things first: i dont know why all sudden such a resistance to plastic, its cheap, strong (if needed), flexible….it was made for doing things that need some strength, need to be light and need to have decent lifetime, i dont why such a rush for “premium materials” while plastic is totally premium (if done right-must admit, plastic on S3 gave premium feel, but deffinatly not premium look). Glass is wonderful material, but has one weakness, it cracks, why would someone want to have glass phone-oh yeah its premium! However it is premium untill it falls down, but than you… Read more »

Expected, Samsung got a strong crush on plastic. Only hope it got something similar to the SGSII to at least reduce the swarm of “plastic toy” trolls.

PS. “2 Megapixel front facing camera capable of shooting 720p HD Videos”. It’s highly unlikely that Samsung won’t join the wagon of the 1080p front facing cameras. The latest AnTuTu leak shows 2.1 Megapixel camera which hints at 1080p (1080p = 2.0736 in Megapixels).
