Samsung’s Galaxy F shows off its aluminium unibody design with brushed metal back in recent press render
Over the course of the past few weeks tons of rumors have been circulating suggesting that Samsung is gearing up to launch an aluminium unibody, Quad-HD variant of its current flagship smartphone and now, thanks to a well-known trusted leaker, we finally get our first glimpse of the device — which has now been dubbed the Galaxy F.
As can be seen in the render above, Samsung’s Galaxy F sports a brushed metal unibody design, extremely thin bezels, sharply rounded corners and a giant Gorilla Glass-protected 5.1-inch qHD display with a predicted resolution of approximately 1440 x 2560 pixels. The all-in-one fingerprint scanner, heart rate monitor and 16-megapixel rear-facing shooter still remain centred on the back of the handset — identical to the standard S5’s hardware arrangement.
Recent speculation indicates that the F’s internals will include a Snapdragon 805 chipset which was unveiled back in January at CES, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, the latest Adreno 330 GPU, 32GB of internal memory, LTE-Advanced, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, hardware buttons, IP67 certified dust and water resistance and a 2,800 mAh removable Li-Ion battery.
Unfortunately, we have no official information as to when Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy F, but it would be fitting if it unveiled it alongside the Galaxy Note 4 at its upcoming UnPacked event in September. We’ll have to wait and see, though, as the renders have already been drawn up so there’s a strong possibility that its set to be announced before then.
