It is not a secret that Samsung has been working on a premium variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5. While the name of the device remains undecided between Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime and Samsung Galaxy F, there has been too much smoke here, for us not consider there is a fire. The device is expected to bring a metallic rear casing, which would be the first for an Android phone from Samsung as well as OIS to the rear camera that was missing from the Galaxy S5, released earlier this year.
The Galaxy F is also expected to bring a Quad HD display, following the footsteps of the LG G3 that was unveiled last month. A clear image of the device was published by the folks over at Phone Arena. However, looking at the rear of the device, we just get a feeling that Samsung may well have decided to go with a sleeker or brushed plastic, again a bit like the LG G3 instead of going with a pure metallic back. The reason for that is, the pattern lines are way too bright, and if it was pure Aluminum, they would have been slightly more subtle. It could be down to the lighting or artificial enhancement in PS later on after taking the product shot too, we are obviously guessing.
The Techtimes too have published a report about the Galaxy F confirming its presence and stating that the phone has passed FCC testing bearing the model number SM-G906.
The device features a 5.2 inch display with dimensions of 142mm x 72.5mm. The Galaxy F is expected to come with Snapdragon 805 SoC as well as 3 GB of RAM making it a slight upgrade on the Galaxy S5. It is expected the Galaxy F will also be an IP 67 certified device like the Galaxy S5.
