Plastic-loathers rejoice, your new phone may be night

So far most of the leaks and renders we've seen of LG Electronics Inc.'s (KRX:066570)(KRX:066575) flagship G3 smartphone have shown a plastic-backed device, similar to LG's domestic arch-rival Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KRX:005930) (KRX:005935) Galaxy S5.

But that might have changed, or perhaps there's two variants of the device -- one plastic, one with a brushed-metal back.  Top Twitter leaker @evleaks decloaked the upcoming phone in a post:
LG G3

Brushed metal or matte metal is a look that many people enjoy, both aesthetically and its better resistance to fingerprints than polished metals or glossy plastics.  HTC Corp. (TPE:2498) has earned critical praise for incorporate that design style into its first generation and second generation HTC One smartphones.  Apple, Inc.'s (AAPL) premium iPhone 5S employs a matte finish metal unibody.

Now it appears the LG G3 -- which is also is expected to pack the first quad-HD (2560x1440 pixels) display in a device headed for American shores -- will also pack a metal finish to its chassis.

Except there's no correlation between thin and light and batteries being replaceable or not.

I don't know who started that talking point, but it's completely invalid. There's no logical reason why a phone would be bulkier or thicker simply by allowing the user to replace his battery.
