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

That renowned dripping faucet @evleaks has posted an image of the rumored premium Samsung Galaxy F flagship, known mostly as the 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.

Other than that, the general shape of the chassis, and the heart rate sensor on the back reek of the 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.

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.
