While the first press render of the Galaxy F only showed off a partial view of the device otherwise known as the Galaxy S5 Prime, another render has now appeared courtesy of @evleaks and this time around we get a full look at the device with its 'glowing gold' trim.

The render doesn't offer any further insight into the device so all the previous rumors are still applicable. In case you've not been following those, it's expected the Galaxy S5 Prime will release alongside the alongside the Galaxy Note 4 in September, will offer thinner bezels than those found on the Galaxy S5 and will only be available in the gold color.

As for the specs, rumors indicate that the device will boast a Snapdragon 805 for international markets, and a Samsung Exynos SoC with LTE Cat 6 connectivity in select regions, 3 GB RAM and a QHD AMOLED display but we all know to take rumors with a grain of salt, right? Yeah.

Gold trimmed Samsung Galaxy F press render appears once again


i think different carriers have different bugs. my att x has different bugs than my brother's verizon for instance.

Wow...it must be nice to go from phone to phone for petty reasons like that. Enjoy your M8 and don't give in to phone lust!

I'm not sure being buggy qualifies as a petty reason! That's something which materially degrades your ability to use and enjoy using the phone.

My thoughts have been why an F series? What is the distinguishing factor that makes it an GALAXY "F"?

Don't worry about it.

I'm confident the S5 will receive 'honorable mention' in this year's best smartphone of the year awards just like the S4 last year.

Sales, hearts and minds, replaceable battery, and profits is what really counts.

Who is this Chris Parsons and what have you done with Bla1ze lol This fall is going to be bananas for techies. I'm definitely going broke.

You and me both, man. Mostly because of the smart watches. I love gadgets and I love watches. These people may as well just stab me right in the wallet this year.

no microsd or no removable battery would really kill the point of having a korean phone. i hope they keep it on the F

Hopefully metal, and it won't sell, and we can the metal phone is premium and people want it argument to rest.

Your dumb if this makes you mad.

Hmm... misspelling "you're" in the same sentence with the word dumb....

Not sure what to make of that.

It's It's in fact the joke, and proves if you're worried about grammar on the internet, then.....well I'm sure it proves something. Maybe a scientist can help me out.
Your dumb if this makes you mad.

Wait you meant s3...no sorry s5...no sorry

If you have something that works, you let it be

Excellent. So it's still in play. *rubs hands together creepily*

Posted from my caseless GS5, because I believe in myself

I wish the Galaxy F well this September at IFA but it's the Galaxy Note 4 for me hands down.

At the end of the day the Galaxy Note products are the GOLD standard of technology today nothing else matters.

Stop.. Just stop...

Not the real Richard people. The real one just commented the other day.

At least with the Note 4, Samsung is going to get rid of their archaic 'old school' physical button.

Physical home button is the only thing that's keeping me from moving.

Please use Qualcomm in the US. Exynos chips lag not sure why Samsung can't get their own chips to work better with their software

Oh and with the new generation what phone do you have with the next chip? Please write a review

I Fahey want to make it different and not have people freak out, it needs to have on screen buttons. At least then it's more than just a spec bump from the S5.

Posted via Android Central App

There are downsides to on-screen buttons, mainly the fact that they take up valuable screen space.

Although KitKat has tackled this problem with Immersion Mode, some app developers are too lazy to update their apps to be compatible with it and thus, ending up wasting screen space.

The solution is an Xposed module called Immerse Me, but it requires a rooted device.

I have a feeling the phone Samsung released in Korea is similar to what we'll get when the iPhone is announced.

Posted via Android Central App

I was hoping for other colors than gold:/ If it comes in black I will upgrade from my n4 :)

Posted via Android Central App

+1 on this. I don't want a gold phone, and don't want to have to put a case on it to hide the color. And I'm not sure I want to make the jump in size to the Note either.

Posted via Android Central App

I'm not trying to hate, but that date is a Friday, and the phone says Wednesday. Could be though, maybe they're just trying to throw us off with the wrong day?

The only problem I see with this is that the site contradicts itself several times. The first section mentions Android 4.4.3 and microSD support up to 64 GB. But under the Memory section, it lists microSD up to 128 GB instead of the 64 GB it listed before. Then, under Features, it reports Android 4.4.2 which is inconsistent with the 4.4.3 it indicated first. This may just be mistakes on the site's part—I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt—but I agree, we'll find that out later.

If Sammy gets rid of the physical home button, I'm keeping my s5 for as long as possible. On screen buttons are retarded and take up valuable screen real estate.

I'm a sucker for on-screen buttons, but I have to agree to this.

Immersion Mode is a great first step. Unfortunately, many app developers are far too lazy to make their apps compatible. Result? Wasted space.

And no. Immerse Me is not an actual solution since it requires a rooted device.

There are several advantages, like slimmer bezels and greater customization, but wasted screen real-estate is a deal breaker to quite a few.

I sooo want this phone. I currently have the Galaxy S4 & love it but I just love the gold trim on this one.
