Many smartphone fans base their preference for the HTC One M8 over the Samsung Galaxy S5 on its metal chassis.
The Samsung Galaxy F, however, is believed to be the true name of the rumoured Galaxy S5 “Prime” – a refined S5, built with better materials.
And now a picture has appeared on Phone Arena which appears to show the phone.
The pictures apparently shows a pre-production model, with a brushed metallic backplate – a tad smaller than the S5 and with thinner bezels.
It’s said the F will have a Snapdragon 805 inside when it launches, along with 3GB of RAM and a 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS.
Despite the S5 only being three months old, it’s rumoured that Samsung is preparing the Galaxy F to replace Galaxy S range altogther.
It’s been suggested the company is fed up with the ever-increasing numbers in the S range and doesn’t want to bring out a sixth iteration of the same phone. The F will also allow Samsung to reset its top-flight offering and potentially get rid of the ‘cheap materials, high price’ connotations that plague the company’s flagship releases.
At the moment, we think the Galaxy F will debut at Berlin’s IFA show in September. If that’s the case, it’s likely to be on show alongside the Galaxy Note 4.
