Samsung Galaxy F images allegedly leak, metal body in tow
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 include a 5.3″ 2K display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, among other plausibly high-end parts. The source of the leaked images says the pictured model features a Snapdragon 801 processor, though it will be changed to a Snapdragon 805 before mass production begins.
Other notable tidbits of information from these alleged images include the fact that the heart rate monitor from the S5 still looks to be present, and other features such as the IP67 water and dust resistance will also likely get carried over if this handset is real.
We remain skeptical of these images, but it is certainly looking like we will see a Galaxy F in the near future.
