Samsung Galaxy F rumored to launch in September as it takes on the Apple iPhone 6
We already have leaked images of the Samsung Galaxy F. This is the "premium" version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 that is expected to feature a 1440 x 2560 QHD screen, a metal body, the Snapdragon 805, and 3GB of RAM. In other words, this is the phone that many thought that the Galaxy S5 was going to be in the first place.

Now, with a phone superior to the Samsung Galaxy S5 being prepped, the manufacturer is looking at a September release for the Galaxy F. The number one reason to wait is so that Sammy can have an answer for the Apple iPhone 6. No question that the first iPhone to feature a screen larger than 4 inches is going to see plenty of demand. Normally, Samsung might have had to shoot back with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, but that might be reserved to use as ammunition against the rumored 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet.

A recent survey conducted by RBC Capital Markets stated that based on a survey, 35% of those who normally wouldn't buy an iPhone, said they would purchase one if it had a larger form factor. If indeed the tech titan decides to wait until September to launch the Galaxy F, the next big question is whether Samsung goes on the offense and releases the Samsung Galaxy F before the iPhone 6, or waits for Apple to launch its device first.

The second reason to wait until September, is to put as much distance between the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Galaxy F as possible. This might allow some of those who purchased the Galaxy S5, some time to simmer down a little. But the truth is, no matter when Samsung releases the Galaxy F, there will be a contingent of vocal Galaxy S5 buyers who will feel that they were cheated, thinking that they were buying Samsung's highest spec'd flagship phone (note how we didn't say phablet) for the year, only to find out that a better model was just right around the corner.

Its healthy competition. Besides those two are a different kettle of fishes.

iOS user won't go for a F neither do a season Android lover going after iOS devices again.

Samsung should just keep to their own production schedule.

This is why so many people simply buy an iPhone instead of a Samsung device. There are just too many confusing choices, which is not what the average consumer wants...

Are you sure about that? An average consumer would want as many choices as they want, so they are able to choose the one they like. And how is it confusing? All you have to do is compare a few models and see which one u favor. Better than no choices at least.

The average consumer is seeking for satisficing choices because he sees a tradeoff between investing time to find an optimal choice and the utility provided by an already discovered satisfying choice. That is the theory of the satisficing man (a basic enconomic decision theory from Herbert Simon). That is why the iPhone is so popular I think. It is appealing and promises a simple, uncomplicated usage. If money is not the first priority for a consumer, the iPhone offers the best tradeoff between investing time to find a device and offered utility (I include the design as part of the utility).

That's how people's minds work when they know a lot about technology (like you or me). But the average consumer/people who have no clue about technology or what all the specs mean just want a simple choice that works well and serves its purpose. That's why the iPhone is popular...

Eletronic Tech (because using a Rock to KILL your enemy and/or dinner IS Technology, if anyone has forgotten) is ALL AROUND us, i think EVERYONE (at least in USA) has a clue to its existance, and Therefore if one Rejects it, that person is IGNORANT defined. and more than likely, Stupid to boot. people as consumers ARE STUPID!!
that "oh the iphone is just simple!!!" is SUCH A COP-OUT for not knowing how to interface with a damn mobile Computer, which we call our phones. its REALLY not that hard......

Samsung is doing it right by going into full battle mode. The number one criticism of the iPhone is size. I see Apple gaining back a few percentage points so why should Samsung sit back and do nothing? Apple use to be at the top but they just released S models while Android continued to grow both in screen size and market share.
It's war baby!!!

You gave me an idea. There should be an experiment that measures the intelligence of both iOS and Android users. I'm pretty sure Android users would score higher...

Large but also with declining revenue, while Apple's revenue grows.

Very funny cos the average consumer doesn't even know this phone is coming out. Only tech nerds like us follow all the latest news and phones. So many people are happy with their s5 that I can assure you. We are a minority of the smartphone buyers market.

True that. But if this is the real design of the S5 F, the average consumer will find the iPhone 6 more appealing I guess. The Galaxy F is not going to be a beauty, if the images show the real device.

If the leaked images of the device are the real deal, then there is nothing Apple has to worry about. While Apple will come up with a new design, Samsung is just using the same not very convincing design with cheap looking metal exterieur. Why is it cheap looking? Because it is not uni-body (at least it looks like this in the pictures).

So the iphone 6 looks very convincing. They are trying to copy htc, but they cant. Apple also uses the same design.
