Samsung have just unveiled its flagship smartphone with the iteration of one of the successful handset on its Galaxy line. Meet the Samsung Galaxy S III —-so far we’re reading good reviews in terms of its functionality and features. However, though we’re hearing good things about everything under-the-hood for GS3, the external material seemed to appear a bit of a drawback –concerned hands-on reviews that it’s made from plain plastic.
To clarify the confusion on what materials is used for the Samsung Galaxy S3 case, PhoneArena just got a word from Samsung that confirmed that the case is not just made of regular plastic but with polycarbonate:
Polycarbonate is used on the battery cover. Polycarbonate is lightweight, solid and is already being widely used in the mobile industry. It was chosen as the best material to represent the minimal organic design of GALAXY S III. Using three layers of high quality, pure and clear polycarbonate, not only is the phone’s aesthetic elevated, but the durability and scratch resistance is maximized.
Honestly, the design don’t fit my taste as it has too flashy curves rather than staying on the GS2 design but the good thing and I believe a big deal is knowing that it’s durable enough made from polycarbonate.
