Will The Next Galaxy Phone Be Made Of Magnesium?

Android fans have been anxiously awaiting the Samsung Galaxy S7 since the S6 came out in April. Reportedly, the two handsets industrial design would be quite similar. This could be a good or a bad thing depending on point of view. In any case, recent rumors suggest Samsung’s next smartphone will be made of magnesium instead of aluminum. The two metals are similar in durability, but magnesium is more impact resistant and less obtrusive to radio waves. It is also lighter. Will this be one of the new trends in mobile phones?
