Samsung Galaxy S5 to be joined by a metal Galaxy F in 2014?
Remember that premium F smartphone line that Samsung was rumored to work on for next year? The first handset in the new series might be called Galaxy F.

Korean website ETNews reports that Samsung has already developed a Galaxy F prototype in Europe. There isn’t much info about the new smartphone, but it’s said that it features a metal body and will stand higher than the Galaxy S5 in Samsung’s 2014 Android portfolio. Moreover, the Korean publication notes that the Galaxy F could be announced at about the same time with the S5 - possibly in March.

It’s unclear if the main difference between the Galaxy F and Galaxy S5 will be related to design only (design based on a metal construction on the former, and on a plastic body on the latter). However, assuming that their specs will be similar, the Galaxy F should be more expensive than the S5 - which, needless to say, will be quite expensive itself.

Of course, all this is pure speculation, as there’s no way of telling if Samsung indeed plans to release this alleged Galaxy F. The details revealed by ETNews do not come from official sources, but from unspecified industry insiders (which can always be wrong).

That's very possible :P I just want to see Samsung to lighten its TouchWiz before I ever consider their phones. It's a bit too creamy for my taste.

I know, but GS4's spec can be topped by a lot of newer phone right now. So even the Google Play Edition, it's still not that attractive to me. I know it has removable battery and SD card slot. However, I prefer uni-body construction.

Considering the LG G2 is a direct knock off of the S4 on the software side, is Samsung still lame?

It's not just about marketing, it really is just better to use. I haven't the S4 so I don't know for sure, but from using the note 2/S3 and Note 3, nothing really comes close in my opinion, never been a fan of the Nexus series either. LG can keep trying and keep innovating, but Sammy will always be their inspiration, the Z2 better bring it's game cause the Z1 is boring, the Z Ultra, that's one sexy beast!

Well. I'm convinced Samsung and Apple are Super Novas of the mobile Industry. As far as Hardware is concerned. If Samsung doesn't work on its software, its not going to matter what
The phone looks like. If Apple doesn't come out with a serious new product; no the IWatch is not impressive to me. I mean something genuinely unique and different. Windows phone is slowly inching its way in. Nobody sees what'shhappening here. I do

You mean blaze of glory? Blackberry has a decent market share in parts of Europe, but it would take an enormous miracle for them to bounce back in the American market.

Quite frankly, if Samsung does move to a metal body while eliminating removable batteries and expandable sd slots, I will return to HTC. I have written to Samsung in regards to to my feelings on this. The only reason for me migrating to Samsung was for the accessibility of the two ingredients.

However, the first manufacture that can implement metal AND retain accessibilty, I will jump on it.

Are you listening Samsung?

(In the lane, snow is glistening Samsung.)

You should try calling them, it's far more personable when they can put a voice to the name.

Commentator, I have to give you a HUGE thumbs up...I'm at the office on New Years Eve (depressing enough), scouring for any nibblets of rumors in the mobile phone universe....and then this.

Thank you sir (or ma'am) for making me laugh hardily today!
