Galaxy F series rumored as upcoming Samsung premium, metal-body lineup
For years now, Samsung’s Galaxy S series has been its flagship destination for smartphones, and more recently, we’ve seen the Galaxy Note line emerge to complement it with phablet-sized models. Now a new rumor suggest that Samsung is interested in branching out with another lineup of high-end models, arriving as its Galaxy F family.
Supposedly, Samsung would launch its first Galaxy F models early next year, possibly in March, where they’d feature not only high-end specs, but premium materials as well. We’ve heard more than once that Samsung might finally be getting serious about working to bring metal bodies to its smartphones, and the Galaxy Fs might just be the first models that get them.
For the first Galaxy F device, we’ve heard about specs like a 16-megapixel camera (with optical stabilization) and an octa-core Exynos SoC. According to this report, decisions about the phone’s display are still not quite finalized, but an OLED panel in the four-to-five-inch range could be likely.
We know some of you were hoping to see the Galaxy S 5 get the metal body treatment, but could you live with it staying plastic if Samsung also has this Galaxy F model available for shoppers interested in a metal phone?
