Samsung could be changing the build design for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, potentially opting to use an aluminium body akin to that of the HTC One.

When Samsung saw the success of the HTC One, the South Korean company is said to be “worried” about the design and build quality of their smart devices and plans to adjust the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

According to SamMobile sources, “Samsung is planning to switch build quality for the next flagship device”, especially after the company received criticism for the Samsung Galaxy S4’s plastic finish.

The source could not reveal the material choice for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but did say it will not be using the design guidelines of the Samsung Galaxy S4. An aluminium design has been tipped due to the fact Samsung were so impressed by the HTC One.

Unlike the build quality, Samsung is confident in the software for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, saying the Nature UX user interface is simple and effective, whilst the new features introduced with the Samsung Galaxy S4 makes Samsung devices “even smarter”.

We think Samsung will launch a metal Samsung Galaxy S4 before Christmas. Read the reasons why here.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Rumours

The stylus-brandishing Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is rumoured to sport a 6-inch FHD AMOLED display, a touch smaller than the mammoth Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 handset recently officially unveiled.

Unlike the UK release of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is tipped to play host to the eight-core Exynos 5 Octa CPU with 4G LTE connectivity and could potentially be one of the first handsets to ship with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.

The handset could also wield a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera when it launches sometime later this year.

Tipped by the SamMobile source to offer even more new features, improving upon the already full range including in the Samsung Galaxy S4, which is due to be released on April 26.

people who b***ched about the plastic body are retarded. if Samsung goes with a metal chassis you not only lose out on a removable battery but also expandable memory (sd card). now you will have no choice but to pay extra in order to get the phone with a larger memory. and all the people that complained about the plastic feel and how they wanted a more premium feel to it are just going to cover it in a case anyways. people are just stupid, and Samsung is stupid for listening to these idiots. then again, I'll be no different because rather than protest against this i'm still going to buy the note 3, i'll just have to pay a hell of a lot more due to those retards that were complaining. oh well.
