Samsung's 'luxury' Galaxy F flagship leaks in a new photo, struts its metallic stuff
We had almost given up on the new "luxury" Galaxy F series phone by Samsung when the S5 LTE-A was announced, as the new S5 version sports the rumored S5 Prime/Galaxy F specs - a Super AMOLED display with Quad HD resolution, and the newest Snapdragon 805 processor. However, a new series of leaks has appeared since, indicating that the Galaxy F might indeed exist in its rumored metal-clad body, marking a bold new line of premium flagship handsets for Samsung.

By premium we, of course, mean with metal chassis elements, as Samsung is long overdue outing such a handset. As if to confirm the most eagerly-awaited aspect of the eventual "luxury" Galaxy F flagship, a new photo has leaked, that clearly shows metallic sides, whereas previously we've head leaks showcasing the metal back. This leads us to the thought that, despite the S5 LTE-A announcement, the Galaxy F is slowly turning from a vaporware into a metal-clad warrior that we can't wait to meet. Or, at least, we are eager to examine without even hearing about the possible Samsung pricing scheme for this puppy.

Galaxy Note 3 crossbred with the iPhone 5s to create the Galaxy phone 8.

Don't you think the corners are not AS rounded as the other leaks for this device? The angles are more Note 3 shaped.

That was my first impression as well... And other leaked pictures of the device from Evleaks definitely don't have chamfered edges like this picture does.

Somebody's wrong and I hope it's Evleaks because this looks much better.

I think Apple's patents on its design has expired right? Oh wait I forgot that they last 50 years. Apple can continue using the same design for the next 50 years:)

No, I know what he's saying. There is even an article about it looking like the iPhone 5S on BGR....because of the slanted edge....

Madness.

If thats all ppl are going to cry copying about.....I will just spend most of my time in HDTV and monitor forums....where I dont see none of this silliness. Or not so much as I do on phone forums, sites.

Not to mention there is a lil indention at the top of this pic. Stop the madness ppl.

Apple.. Are you serious?. Ugly curve phones. You are telling me Apples curve Tvs look better than Sony, Sharp, LG, Samsung, Pioneer Tvs, which has no curves with 180 degrees angle, with 0.5mm aspect to screen ratio.

The sharper the edges, the sexy and stylish and slick it looks. Look at the Lumia 925, 930, 1520, oppo 7, Miezu phones. Lenovo K900, Z2, HtcOne,

Really really? Why should Samsung learn from apple? Apple should learn on how to make ads from Samsung and put a removeable battery in their phone

i think if design remains the same, is not the material that will make the difference.

He's doing this thing called "having a life and not waiting on baited breath to have a stupid pointless argument with a nobody online". You should try it sometime. Instead of obsessing over someone who literally forgot you even exist.
