Pictures of the premium Samsung Galaxy F leak
The Samsung Galaxy F is expected to be the "premium" version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, with features that include a 5.3 inch 1440 x 2560 QHD screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 16MP rear camera with OIS. Instead of a plastic body, the Galaxy F employs a metal casing. What gives this rumor some bite, is that prior to the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S5 at MWC, there was speculation about a QHD screened Samsung Galaxy F.

One of our loyal readers has sent us a couple of pictures allegedly showing off a pre-production model of the Samsung Galaxy F. He tells us that this particular unit carries the Snapdragon 801 inside, although that will be changed to the Snapdragon 805 by the time the phone rolls off the assembly line. He also tells us that the phone is slightly smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S5 with thinner bezels. Oddly enough, he notes that the phone is "asymmetrical" with the top of the handset more curved. In case you were wondering, the Samsung Galaxy F is said to be IP 67 certified, giving the "premium" version of Samsung's flagship model the same protection against dust and water as the Galaxy S5.

As usual, we suggest that you take these images with a grain of salt. It is always healthy to be cynical to a certain degree when dealing with leaks.


Thanks, Anonymous tipster!

You're a customer. You don't have to care how much money companies get. Only thing you have to care is that you can get the best possible product.

I respect the troll's views on the Sammy devices. But why don't you try and step back and have a neutral eye for once? This time I think you guys should retreat from the (Sammy phone = ugly^2) equation and actually look at this phone without any bias feelings.
You will find this phone very attractive. And the majority of the other customers will.

Think about it for a minute. .. wait for it.... thats right other companies, not Samsung, do you want the SG5 to impose other company designs traits onto their flagship? Its called signature designs like iphone uses for all their undogly amount of silicon they've released in the past half decade. before you open your qwerty keyboard and comment next time, please realize the structure of design patents and why each of those other companies look the way they do.

each have their signature look without imposing rival oem's design traits. Thats why they are other flagships. Do you want Samsung to look like other flagships? Samsung is using what works for them! And you ask if I LOOK at other flagships, I owned other flagships and still came back to Samsung . Sent from my Galaxy Note 3

You probably heard "if it is not broken, dont fix it" right? Look at HTC they are learn the hard way..... Htc used to be the king of android before 2009 what happen they try to change.

People love the look the pure flat rectangle look on the phone and every time company try curve round odd shape etc the phone just doesnt sale. Look back begin of time of the cell phone to today all the flat rectangle phone sale like hot cake..... The only company maintain that stream line make money, the example is Apple and Samsung.

That is one narrative of the story, the reason HTC went down hill was because of many reasons ( price, battery life, ....). The main reason was the competition offered better devices than HTC with lower prices and bigger competitors such Samsung had more resources to push their products around the world not like in the case of HTC and not due to design language only, the period since 2009 was so asperous every other smartphone manufacturer was changing their design and playing with it, Samsung since S2 was on an incline in terms of growth especially after the Note series and grew even more popular with it and that was all great until now were they reached maturity and i believe they are stepping to the decline phase if they continue with the same tweaks they do to their devices since S3, they need to offer a new fresh design at least as a prototype like what S2 was back in the days and see how the market reacts to it. the main reason they sticked with the design language was because it was favored back then but now a lot of the customers are bored and tired with the old design they need something new something which will start another growth cycle for Samsung. That is simply what everyone is asking for.

What disappointment? with all these sales and all the costumers and all the billions they made/are making out of it. I find it a success, and lmao yes no one cares about your opinion

Relax bro!
Earning billions doesnt mean good services.

They have some good tablets and the trully awsome Note series, apart from that they just SPAM the market with lots of Galaxy's.

But this Galaxy F could be something worth considering

Looks a bit better than regular Samsung Galaxy S5 but still not good. LG G3 design looks much better to me.

1) There is no "band aid" texture on the back cover.
2) There is no speaker grills on the back cover.

First of all what your comment has to do with my comment #88?

Also by saying "band aid" I was not joking, using this I just described texture of Samsung Galaxy S5 back cover.
