Metal Samsung Galaxy F gets snapped next to the Galaxy S5, boasts LG G3-like slim bezels

Somebody, somewhere, appears to have somehow gotten his hands on the yet-unreleased Samsung Galaxy F (previously referred to as Galaxy S5 Prime), and, so far, he's had a fun time teasing us. Today is no different, for we have yet another high resolution snap of the premium-looking Samsung Galaxy F, but this time there's a twist: it's snapped side-by-side with Samsung's current flagship, the Galaxy S5...

Well, you can't always keep up with the latest devices. Best would be buying a phone that has good software and hardware which suits your liking. But, most of all, be contented..xD

Could someone of at least average intelligence at phone arena read up on how watermarks work, please? Main point being they're not meant to obscure half the image.

The back cover is hideous. Its like duct tape? Same ol' recycled design from Samsung. Just because Apple likes to recycle its design like the leaked iPhone 6. Great looking bezels however. That ugly back cover is a deal breaker.

I like it. I think the back was borrowed from Samsung Ativ-S (the first one) and it's a metalic brushed plastic, but works fine here. Maybe the chasis is aluminium and the rest is plastic. That screen looks gorgeous! I hope they release it soon so we can try it out :)

Looks awesome! I love small bezels. However I hate to admit it, but I don't think the Bezels on Galaxy F are as thin as the bezels on LG G3 sadly?? However I will sadly you have to take into consideration the LG G3 doesn't have buttons on the side where it can make the bezels really thin where the Galaxy F does have buttons on the side and still has extremely thin bezels so really that just shows what great job Samsung has done, also the bigger the screen the smaller the bezels are so if the Bezels on Galaxy F isn't as thin as bezels on LG G3 then the bezels on Note 4 will be as thin if not thinner than LG G3 Bezels but I really don't think bezels on Galaxy F are as thin as LG G3 Bezels. I like how the Galaxy F back looks. :)

i don't believe that is going to launched in september, because if so then why are there so many leaks already, the galaxy note 4 doesnt have leaks even though it is more popular, so my guess is that the galaxy f will be launched in july or june

Galaxy F will be a great phone. Galaxy S5 is a great phone. iPhone 6 will be a great phone. Lg G3 is a great phone.The spec war is over. I currently have LG G2, best phone I ever had, works like a charm, I'm still getting LG G3 because, being the shallow douche that I am, I like to have a current flagship in my pocket. What I'm trying to say is that it absolutely doesn't matter if Galaxy F has Snapdragon 805 or ScorchedEarth 600 processor, there is absolutely nothing different a person with 805 processor will be doing better on his phone that a person with 801 or 800 processor. Same way QHD screens are really not necessary, 1080p are just fine. As I said, spec war is over. But Samsung phones currently have an overly simplistic shape, whether with thin or fat bezels it's the same, and it hasn't changed in generations, also an absolutely idiotic and unforgivable physical home button, and spacing between icons on UI is just ridiculous, LG G2/G3 have icons spaced much closer together, it looks much better and is more efficient. I also have no idea what is good about the phone being made of metal, iPhone or HTC are no more applealing in metal than without it, anyone who cares about his or her device uses protective case just as I do with all my phones, they might as well be making phones out of angel's foreskin ( I think Vertu does) and it wouldn't make any difference. So it's LG G3 for me, at least it has laser focusing and, fresh look and fresh flat UI going for it.

True True, I love the Bezels on the LG G3, I do find weird however that on Pictures of the "Galaxy S5 Prime" On Sammobile the bezels look bigger than the bezels on Galaxy F here so I am really Hoping the Bezels here are the real deal, tell you what, go on Google and type in this and you will see what I mean, go on Google and Type in "Alleged Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime poses for the camera" Then click on the Story from Sammobile then look at the Bezels and you will see that the Bezels on they pictures look bigger than the Bezels on the Galaxy F on here. So I am hoping the Bezels on the Galaxy F are the real deal instead of the Bezels on that Link, go and do what I said and you will see what I mean. What I am saying is that it sounds weird too me cause they are meant to be the same phone but the Bezels in they pictures in that link look bigger, However I will say if the Bezels on the Picture above are the real deal then wow I think the Bezels on the Galaxy F will be thinner than the Bezels on the LG G3. If I wasn't waiting for the Note 4 I would buy the LG G3. LG G3 Is an awesome phone like bro!

SPEAKER CHANGE???? No one ever mentions if Samsung is making some speaker change. Some of the early leaked photos and these don't show the cutout for the rear speaker. Some leaked photos show a bottom speaker like the iPhone. Does anyone know about the EXTERNAL SPEAKER?
