Alleged premium Samsung Galaxy F handset leaks out, enclosed in a test mule chassis
posted by Daniel P. / Apr 07, 2014, 4:04 AM
Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a 16 MP camera with optical image stabilization. A Samsung phone with such specs already appeared a few times in various benchmarking databases, including last week on GFXBench, so there might be some merit to the speculation. Moreover, the interface language is in Vietnamese, and we know Samsung has a factory there, from which a number of all-telling leaks have appeared in the past.While we can't see much of the phone, which is enclosed as secretly as every engineering prototype from Samsung in the last two years, we can see the display, which is claimed to be with QHD (1440x2560 pixels) of resolution, and a 5.2" size. The other top-shelf specs are rumored to be a next-gen 2.5 GHz
The thing here is that the speaker grill on the phone enclosed in this angular test mule chassis, is located at the bottom, like on the Note 3, so it might very well be an early version of the Note 4, rather than a representative of Samsung's eventual premium design line. That's in case the leak is credible at all, as there is not much else we can deduct from the pictures below, especially the thing that interests us most - the finalized design.

The whole point of those "articles" is, the apple's propaganda TO REPEAT AGAIN AND AGAIN that the great S5 IS NOT PREMIUM(lol). To brainwash you. Few days before S5 to come on the market. The cheap aluminum is not more expensive than the special plastic and fiber glass that Samsung use for S5. Besides the production price(BOM) of the high end samsung devices is always higher than the "premum" tin can phones. So I don't see your point. How the aluminum could make the imaginary "premium S5" more expensive????

In my business, we use aluminium profiles. Same premimium finish as of iphone and htc one. One piece of profile we sell at AED. 65/- which is equivalent to USD. 17.66/- and the size of each piece is 3cm x 270cm. Our purchasing price is 3 times lesser than selling price, so you can imagine how cheap premimium aluminum can be. Where as we also sell high grade polycarbonate profile which is AED. 50/- per piece and each piece is 2cm x 90cm(not even half size of aluminum profile, 3 times smaller) and our purchase is slightly lesser than half of selling price. I can easily imagine that how cheap aluminum can be and how expensive plastic substrates can be

Special plastic? Its polycarbonate that is injection molded I'm sure, so they are able to churn out thousands of them quickly. Ive heard nothing about it having fiber glass in the construction, so not sure what your talking about there. But considering your past comments of trolling and Apple hating, I will take your latest comment as such.

Definitely a Note 4, it looks very large, yes I know part of that is due to the casing, but it looks substantially larger than a GS5, especially in the 2nd pic.

looks good, but im finding it odd how some people go crazy about a good premium design, but end up putting a plastic case on it.
