New information about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 hints that Samsung could be planning to release two versions of the device. This follows recent reports of a mystery Samsung device, model number SM-G900S showing up in GFXBench’s database.

According to IBTimes Monday (Dec.9), leaked photos popped up online in earlier reports revealing what’s said to be the metal chassis of the upcoming Galaxy S series device. Samsung isn’t likely to ditch the durable plastic materials common among its devices and could offer the Galaxy S5 in both plastic and metal. The Korean giant would be following suit of the Apple, which offered customers their choice of the iPhone 5S in metal and the iPhone 5C in plastic.

Rumors suggest that the design of the Galaxy S5 phone will also feature a curved display and design similar to that of Samsung’s limited edition Galaxy Round smartphone released in Korea. The expected flexible, shatterproof OLED display of the Galaxy S5 would offer advanced durability to complement the new curved form factor. Samsung could innovate the mobile industry as it will likely initiate competitors to follow its trend of curved designed handsets.

According to IBTimes, the Galaxy S5 is rumored to feature a 64-bit processor and 4GB RAM, making it a master device for multi-tasking. The device is expected to have a release date set between February and March of 2014.
