This Samsung Galaxy F (S5 Premium) concept looks almost real
Although rumors had it that Samsung would introduce two different Galaxy S5 smartphones - including a premium model made of metal - the South Korean company announced only a regular S5 at MWC 2014 last month. Still, a metal-clad Galaxy S5 might be introduced by Samsung later this year.

Not long after the announcement of the regular Galaxy S5, we heard that its premium version would arrive in May. Naturally, this should be more expensive than the S5 that we’ll be able to buy starting April 11, and it might have significantly different specs - like a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display.

While we can’t know exactly what Samsung has in store for us, we discovered a Samsung Galaxy F concept that tries to paint a pretty realistic picture on what the rumored S5 Premium could be. The concept was made by Ivo Marić, and adds a metal case to the S5 that we already know. There is also a dedicated camera button. Check out the concept below and let us know if you think it looks better than the real S5.

There are many possibilities of what does the "F" mean, it could be F**k, Fraud, Fool, Freak, Fake, Foot, Fussy...or just...F.

If I had to choose between the "premium" Galaxy S5 and the plastic one they've already announced, I'll take the plastic one.

Not sure what you mean by first aider, but I think the plastic version looks fine. I don't think the specs are going to change too much (perhaps aside from the screen resolution) and the price is probably going to be more expensive so unless the design is AMAZING it won't be worth it for me.

The boy is probably referring to what every other cool kid has mentioned, that the S5's back looks like a band-aid.

I'll just wait for the Note 4, but I don't think it will topple my Note 3; so maybe the Note 5... What the hell - I'll wait for the Note 6!

NO, WAIT! I'll wait for the Note 7! For realsies now! Bah, whatever! I'd rather an even number, so Note 8, you'll have my money!

115. GeekMovement (Posts: 1519; Member since: 09 Sep 2011)


ah, thanks for the clarification. The Note 3 is an amazing device I wish I had one, but I'm quite content with my Note 2 as well (:

This is really nice. Somehow I'm having second thoughts about getting S5 right away at its launch. I'm clueless if Samsung is planning to release a 'premium' S5 version and I don't wanna regret not waiting for it. That is not to say the 'regular' S5 is a bad phone. Right now that's what I plan to replace for my S4.

Rumors are saying that the premium S5 will cost more than the standard version.
If money is no option then I'd say wait and see the differences.

Hmm interesting for samsung. I think they imitate marketing strategy of Apple by usevery high price. Damn samsung. I prefer sony or Nokia or new oppo than this s5. I don want pay extra money juz for the finger print and heart beat. I want something more if I wanna pay extra.

Good thing it can be rooted and run pure android. IOS and Windows Phone will always have less freedom and cost more though (though there is a slight chance microsoft will take the stick out of their ass but only slight).

Hey, Iphone 5C is also made of plastic but much cheaper plastic than the Samsung's so stop the freaking complaining about the build quality of Samsung.
