As rumors continue to swirl surrounding the final form of Samsung's purported "super flagship" handset, popularly referred to as the Galaxy S5 Prime, we're seeing yet more evidence of the device's existence. PhoneArena, which snagged a couple of cheeky pictures of a similar looking phone back in May, has published new images showing the back and front of the device, along with a comparison with the current Galaxy S5.
As expected, the new model — purportedly a "Galaxy F," according to a photo of its boot screen — appears to pack a larger display than the regular GS5, along with much slimmer bezels and a curvier design. As before, we're seeing signs of a possible aluminum band around the side of the phone, though it's difficult to say for sure based on images alone. These latest photos show a brushed metal effect back like the LG G3, compared to the dimpled pattern we saw previously, but the overall shape and size of the phone appear consistent with earlier leaks. More interestingly, the comparison with the GS5 suggests this new device won't be significantly larger, despite its expanded display size.
Rumored specs for the "Galaxy F" include a Snapdragon 805 or Samsung Exynos processor with Cat. 6 LTE, 3GB of RAM and a 5.25-inch QHD (2560x1440) AMOLED display. Talk of any firm release date is premature, but it's been suggested this new high-end offering could appear alongside the Galaxy Note 4 this September, giving buyers Note 4-class specs in a smaller chassis.
We'll take all this with a pinch of salt until it's official, of course, but the evidence of a Samsung "super flagship" arriving later this year certainly seems to be mounting.
So would you buy a Galaxy F over the current crop of high-end Androids? Shout out in the comments.
