Samsung teases Android fans with aluminum smartphone

Samsung is known as the King of Plastic to Android fans, so it was a little bit shocking to see them unveil a new smartphone this week with at IFA 2012 a metal casing. The new Samsung ATIV S features a thin 8.7 mm brushed aluminum chassis and looks quite stunning, but don’t get too excited because it runs Windows Phone 8.

Hopefully this is a new direction for Samsung Mobile. Hardcore users have been pretty vocal about wanting a smartphone made from materials other than plastic, and Samsung appears to have been listening. If you recently purchased the Samsung Galaxy S III and wish it looked like this, let us know in the comments below.
