A new report reveals that a new premium smartphone from Samsung, code named Galaxy F could be unveiled together with the company’s next flagship device, widely expected to be dubbed Galaxy S5.
Following the release of the rumored Galaxy S5, the Samsung Galaxy F — sporting a metal body, could also be launched this year, claims Sammobile which allegedly it got its information from a Korean publication. Before moving the Galaxy F’s metallic prototype to South Korean giant’s Vietnam production unit it was first manufactured in Europe according to the report.
Fanning the flames, several inside sources suggests that Samsung has started mass-producing metal chassis for Galaxy S5, which somewhat solidifies the claims of the Sammobile website.
The yet-to-be-announced Galaxy S5 smartphone’s model number SM-G900F could actually be Samsung’s ‘super premium’ variant a.k.a. Galaxy F. It seems that the rumor is referring to the mass-production of the Galaxy F based on the information presented suggesting that it is the variant of the Galaxy S5. Following on this trending gossip, it inadvertently highlighted Samsung’s time table as the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy F variants are just months away before the company say anything to the press.
It was speculated that after several years Samsung using plastic material for its devices will finally change gears and introduce a metal chassis for its next flagship smartphone; and who knows, this might be it? The fact still remains though as no official announcement from Samsung yet on whether or not it will launch two smartphones or if they’ll even have metal cases. I, for one, am excited about this news whether or not there is truth behind it. What do you think? [via]
