If you were miffed about the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A’s goudy specs compared to the base flagship, you’re going to be even more upset with the supposed Samsung Galaxy F. This device is basically a Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A with a brushed metal backing, and it has leaked once again in press renders received by @evleaks.
It’s odd that Samsung isn’t opting to make this part of their Galaxy S lineup considering how powerful it is. It houses a Snapdragon 805 chipset, Quad HD display, 3GB of RAM and the like if recent rumors are to be believed. The press render confirms the return of the heart-rate sensor Samsung has grown a liking to, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see a fingerprint coming along for the ride (especially considering the lower-class Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini happened to get one of its own).
It’s understandable for users to feel upset about Samsung releasing a phone that’s supposed to be top of the line only to one-up it in the months to follow. That said, perhaps there’s no reason to fret — just as the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A likely won’t travel far outside of South Korea, there’s a possibility you won’t even get the option of buying the Samsung Galaxy F whenever it’s officially revealed. If that rationale isn’t working for you then let’s just hope this is some sort of “test” for Samsung’s metal build for future iterations of their flagship smartphones.
