The Samsung Galaxy S7 is not on the market yet and everyone knows that, but its make and specs continue to be a subject of speculation among many in the mobile phone industry – with some estimating the model will be made of magnesium rather than aluminum, and for a number of reasons too.

The rumors indicate the Samsung Galaxy S7 might come in a different design, possibly with magnesium alloy for its body instead of the aluminum used for several other phones on the market; and funny enough, some think it might be made of glass or metal. Funny right? But not impossible.

Analysts favor the magnesium alloy design rumor for a number of reasons. The lightness and strength of magnesium would make it a suitable candidate for a phone’s body – and it gets better when combined in an alloy of zinc or aluminum. Magnesium alloy can be used for airplanes, cars, lightweight machines, and small products such as digital cameras, laptops, and now mobile phones.

Magnesium alloys in this sense appear better than aluminum because it is 33% lighter with greater densities than the latter. Magnesium allows are much durable, stronger, and able to dissipate heat so well. Not to mention the fact that it absorbs shocks and vibrations much more than aluminum; it does not affect radio wave transmissions; does not melt easily, and possesses higher mechanical properties.

The point that the coming Samsung Galaxy S7 might come in magnesium alloy remains a rumor and confirmations must be awaited when the much-awaited phone finally debuts early 2016.
