Alleged Samsung Galaxy F render and photo leak, show premium metal device
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 to him, is that possible specifications of this Galaxy F have dropped, along with juicy details regarding possible Samsung plans.
First of all, the device is expected to have a Quad HD 5.3″ display, and run on a Snapdragon 805 SoC from Qualcomm. It will also purportedly be the replacement to the Galaxy S line, a move which we wouldn’t put past Samsung. This means that there would be no Galaxy S6, as if we weren’t sad enough already about the possibility of seeing no Nexus 6 as well. We would apparently see the smartphone launched at a “Samsung Unpacked Ep. 2” event.
The second leak adds in the render you see above, which clearly shows we’re dealing with a metal-like backing unlike the Galaxy S5, along with returning features such as the heart rate monitor and the company’s TouchWiz software skin.
Keep in mind that these rumors are unconfirmed, even by @evleaks, so we remain skeptical. Would anyone be interested in purchasing this Galaxy F, instead of a Galaxy S6?
