Samsung Galaxy S5 Almost Certain for a Metal Housing

In related news, it has been noted that the rumours of Samsung Galaxy S5 shedding all the plastic and sporting a full metal body might be true.

According to the reports, Catcher, a Taiwanese company rumoured to be one of the prime candidates to provide the metal casings to Samsung, will commence supplying a certain amount of metal housings (10-30 million units) this month.

BYD, a Chinese firm and Taiwan's Ju Teng will be providing the remaining units.
