Samsung to employ new design for Galaxy Note 3?
Over the weekend we learned a juicy bit of information coming from one of SamMobile’s insiders. According to rumors, Samsung is getting a little nervous after seeing the success of the HTC One, and is unsure if their build quality and design of their mobile devices is good enough for their users.
If you remember, the HTC One is made completely from aluminium, something all Samsung fan have said they would like to see. When the Galaxy S4 was introduced, people started to point the finger at Samsung for using plastic again instead of aluminium or metal. Now let’s clear up the fact that Samsung isn’t worried at all about the software; they believe their software is far superior than what runs on HTC devices. In their minds, what could be better than Samsung’s simple Nature UX interface?
Now back to the issue. According to SamMobile’s insider, Samsung is worried about build quality and they plan on changing things around a bit on their next flagship device. It has been said that the Galaxy Note 3 will not use the same design guidelines of the Galaxy S4. The material choice for the Galaxy Note 3 is still unclear however. Will Samsung listen to their fans and turn to metal? They were going to try it with the Galaxy S4 as it was very popular internally, but Samsung couldn’t produce it on time (due to deadlines) so it was trashed. Maybe this time they feel a little more prepared. There is still time for Samsung to get everything geared up and produce a device using something other than plastic. As usual nothing has been confirmed, so as soon as we hear about any new changes in regards to the Galaxy Note 3 we will make sure to keep you informed.
