    Default outer camera lens material

    Anyone know what the outer camera lens is made of? For instance the iPhone 5 and 5s have sapphire crystal protecting the camera.

    I hate cases but I worry about the camera lens getting scratches. If Samsung used sapphire crystal or some comparable material I can breathe easier.

    No but the phone is pretty new. I figured since it's such a high end phone it could conceivably have sapphire crystal.

    Sadly, every indication is that it's just plain ol' glass and, as such, subject to pretty easy shattering. This is one phone you probably want (need?) to put a case on. Running it naked is really an invitation to disaster I'm afraid.
