    Rumors of a Samsung Galaxy F (or the S5 Prime, as we used to call it) are picking up once again. Alleged Galaxy F images show us a phone similar to the Galaxy S5, but with a metal body as opposed to the S5's perforated plastic. The images themselves are very similar to a leaked render of the device we saw a few days back -- the same metal back casing is employed, and the front is similar. An image of the boot screen reveals the purported name, "Samsung Galaxy F," which we last learned of as a possible replacement to Samsung's premium Galaxy S line. Expected specifications for this Galaxy F ...

    Despite being shot down multiple times already, rumors of a Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, or a Galaxy F, are still flying. We recently saw two more leaks, both from the same source, adding on to the fire -- we now have an alleged render, some possible specs, and even more. The first image -- available at the first source link below -- is a shot (blurry, of course) of the front of the alleged device. It looks similar to the Galaxy S5, and that's all we really have to see about it. The interesting part of this leak, which @evleaks notes is an "UNCONFIRMED, UNVERIFIED, UNSUBSTANTIATED" tip sent ...

    We're never satisfied with what we have. Such is the way of the mobile world, so it should come as no surprise that the Galaxy S5 was only official for a few hours before talk of the Galaxy S5 Prime went through the roof. The premium edition of the Galaxy S5 had made headlines more than few times before the Galaxy S5 was officially announced. In fact, we were led to believe Samsung might introduce both handsets side by side, at the very same event. However, once it was clear the official Galaxy S5 would only feature marginal improvements over the Galaxy S4's specifications, the Prime ...

    Quite contrary to today's possibly-faked video leak of the device, we are now seeing a set of images of what could be the upcoming Galaxy S5 Prime from Samsung. We are taking our first look at a device which, well, looks pretty similar to the original S5. Looking toward the bottom of the device, we see what looks to be a slightly larger USB flap than the Galaxy S5, which means water resistance is likely still a go. Also, there looks to be a bottom-firing speaker, which is at least a step forward from the tinny rear-facing units we've come to associate with Samsung devices. There also ...

    No matter how much Samsung denies it, it seems the leaks for a Galaxy S5 "Prime" are not about to subside. The latest one comes in video form, as the folks at TK Tech News have allegedly received a pre-production unit of the device in gold. The device shown on camera is said to have a 2K display, lining up with previous rumors, of about the same size as the existing Galaxy S5. What's confusing is the fact that the device seems to have more of a water-resistant seal than the S5 -- could this be the Active, instead? In terms of color options, it seems gold will be one of them. The device's ...

    What exactly qualifies as a "remix?" How deluded do you have to be to believe in all these "Prime" rumors? Why are we so transfixed by the notion of lasers on smartphones, and so easily taken in by a smartphone commercial, if it's shot like a trailer for Inception? We tackle these questions, and the biggest announcement section in the history of the podcast, in episode 096 of the Pocketnow Weekly. No, that's not bragging – it's just an unavoidable symptom of a month packed with unboxings, hands-ons, product launches, and reviews (both forthcoming and already-published). But even in the ...

    Rumors of upcoming Samsung Android have been arriving on multiple fronts, and we're looking forward to everything from a third batch of new tablets this year, to some more Galaxy S5 variants, including that GS5 Active we checked out some evidence for overnight. Today we're going to continue looking into those new Galaxy S5-series models, as we spot what sure seem to be a couple of them swinging by the Bluetooth SIG. We're looking at two model numbers here: SM-G906L and SM-G900FG. The former you might recognize as the G906 that's likely to be the quad HD Galaxy S5 Prime. The L suffix ...

    Samsung sure does seem to be working on an upgraded version of its Galaxy S5, a phone we've been talking about as the GS5 Prime. Beyond the move to a 2K quad HD display, there's also been talk of a new metal body and upgrades to various internal chips. We've even got a model number for the handset, which should arrive as Samsung's SM-G906. But for all we've heard, we really haven't gotten any look at the phone itself. Those early case renders didn't reveal anything of consequence, and more recent pics claiming to reveal the model have been uncovered as fakes. We still might not have any ...

    Despite the fact that Samsung executives will deny its existence time and time again, the mythical Galaxy S5 Prime may be on its way after all. Its latest appearance was on a Korean website, as model number SM-G906K. In the wake of all of these online appearances, we would be lying if we said we didn't have the slightest feeling a Galaxy S5 Prime is on the way. The phone's image on the site shows the device in a case, possibly the same Spigen accessory we saw covering the device a couple leaks ago. This means that, no, we have no means of knowing, from this listing, whether there will be ...
