Samsung is rumored to be working on a premium version of the Galaxy S5 — no, we’re not talking about the LTE-A variant. The Samsung Galaxy F, as its commonly known in the rumor mill, has been leaked extensively in the past few weeks. We’ve seen a handful of press renders of the alleged device, and today, the purported handset posed for the camera for the first time, although in an incomplete manner.
As you can see, there’s a metallic frame on the side of the device, much like the iPhones. The folks at GSMArena, citing their inside sources, mention that it will come with an aluminium frame, with a removable plastic back.
The handset is expected to come with the same specifications as the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A version, but with a more premium look. Rumors suggest — we’ve seen in the leaked press renders as well — that the Samsung Galaxy F will come with a metallic chassis, or something similar to what LG has done with its flagship device.
It’s also said to come with a 5.1-inch display sporting a QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and a quad-core Snapdragon 805 SoC with Adreno 420 GPU. Rumors also hint at 3GB of RAM on board, while the rest of the specifications should remain unchanged. We may get a 16GB storage, microSD card slot, a 2,800 mAh battery and Android 4.4.2 KitKat as its operating system.
There’s no word about the launch of the alleged Samsung Galaxy F, but considering the pace at which the leaks are appearing, it shouldn’t take too long. Until then, take a proverbial amount of salt as it (image above) could be fake.
