Upscale S5 Prime might end up as Samsung Galaxy F, leaked render suggests a brushed metal chassis

Galaxy S5 Prime. What we see in the render is the dotted front that is typical for Samsung's gear this season, as well as what looks like a brushed metal back.
Galaxy S5's design. By now we've heard numerous times already that Samsung is preparing a "luxury" F series offshoot, which will sport premium specs and design materials, and cost more. Its flagship representative has mostly been labeled Galaxy S5 Prime during its trip through the rumor mill, but also known as Samsung KQ, and even as the Galaxy F - that same name that @evleaks is referring to today. This might end up to be the real title of the upscale handset, seeing that Samsung has apparently begun to stray away from naming everything within the S line. The S4 Zoom cameraphone successor, for instance, was not called not S5 Zoom, as previously thought, but K zoom, so a new F series could warrant a Galaxy F flagship indeed.Other than that, the general shape of the chassis, and the heart rate sensor on the back reek of the
The "F" supposedly stands for "fashion," as the phone is speculated to feature chassis with abundant metal elements, unlike the plastic Galaxy S5. The same company that does the aluminum unibody designs for HTC's flagships, and Apple's iPad mini franchise, was allegedly tasked with producing the body of the Galaxy F not long ago. The rest of the rumored specs are no less breathtaking - a 5.2" Quad HD Super AMOLED display panel, Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a 16 MP camera on the back with optical image stabilization. We cross fingers that all those rumors turn out to be true, as speculation points to an announcement by the end of this month, and launch in July, so that the Galaxy F can be a direct competition to the LG G3, and its own Quad HD display panel.

and there it is folks, a premium feel of ugliness.. :) they need to change their desing language, the front of the phone are totally boring. they are all the same! from cheap to expensive, they all look the same! now don't argue with me that iphone didn't change their design as well, but atleast they have just one phone not samsung with variety of phones that all looks the same! same ugliness!

So what do you suggest them to change genious? Did you take a look at HTC M7 and M8? You will complain about bezels. Sony front speaker too? Complain about bezels. G3? Still similar too all the others with less bezels. Having a big screen and either on screen buttons or capacitive is the only choice here. Its also the best design. If you want something different then go back to old phones with buttons or go S5 Active with buttons. You are just complaining for the sake of it. And its an incredible stupid complain too.

I wish samsung change the design language of galaxy series. I have no problem with plastic material as long as its well machined. other thing is new ui they have been using same ui since s3 and its getting kinda boring. I would buy a samsung phone with totally new design and new clean ui.

To be fair the update to TouchWiz was quite the overhaul. They do, however, need to change the name because TouchWiz is such a boring name.

Nope. Apple has all the money. Samsung gains the crumbs Apple leaves for the rest. Samsung's profits are decreasing while Apple's profits are increasing. Strangewise, it is the exact opposite when it comes to Market Share.

805 will feel slower then 801 when it's running 2k. Z2 and S5 are already waterproof and the plastic body of the s5 will make sure that it stays that way. A dent in the wrong place will break waterproofing. And there are going to be a lot of denting considering how slippery metal is.
