Rumors: the F in Samsung Galaxy F stands for "fashion", Galaxy S5 might go on sale in May
Russian insider Eldar Murtazin yesterday tweeted that “Galaxy F” is a condename, not the commercial name of the handset. Reportedly, F stands for “fashion”, and the new smartphone should be an “overpriced” one “based on S4” and featuring a metal body. If that’s the case, the Galaxy S5 will remain Samsung’s only new flagship smartphone for the first half of this year, with the Galaxy F probably being a niche device (who really wants an expensive S4 now, even if it’s made out of metal?).
Eldar also tweeted about the Galaxy S5. According to him, Samsung will not announce its new flagship Android handset at MWC 2014 - despite a previous report from Korea, which quoted a Samsung exec who seemingly confirmed the smartphone’s arrival at the trade fair in February. The Russian insider mentioned that the S5 could go on sale on May 1, so it should be officially presented in March (just like the S4 last year).
It remains to be seen how accurate all this turns out to be. In any case, we will certainly see a Galaxy S4 successor in the near future, as Samsung clearly needs to do something about its recent slow down in smartphone sales.
