Reportedly, the new metallic body is made of magnesium alloy, which definitely is a key move to make the device build sturdy. Samsung has also reportedly demanded the samples to be made smooth, forming its resemblance with the design norms of Apple devices.

The reasons for the new metallic unibody embracement are still unclear. Samsung has already fired a couple of shots previously with design improvements, but not with its flagship device. It also needs to be seen whether the new metallic approach is to solely ensure the solid build.

The upcoming smartphone from Samsung’s premium series is expected to be announced during the early months of February. Rumors also have it that the Galaxy S7 will also sport a 5.7-inch display that will be run by the Exynos M1 SoC.

Another device is also speculated to be launched alongside, which will revert back to the Snapdragon family with the adoption of 820 SoC, the latest from Qualcomm.
