Earlier this week Samsung formally announced the Galaxy S5 LTE-A. It has the same build and design as the Galaxy S5 which was released back in April, but the smartphone touts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and a Quad HD display. Now we have been hearing for a few weeks now that a premium variant of the Galaxy S5 is on the cards, and while the recently announced variant may live up to that expectation, it appears that the Galaxy F is still very much in the pipeline.
One thing that’s said to set the Galaxy F apart from the Galaxy S5 is its metal build. The latter is fashioned out of plastic so a change in build material would certainly be a big selling point for the device. Samsung is also expected to improve the specifications, add in a Quad HD display and the Snapdragon 805 processor.
Merely a couple of days after the Galaxy S5 LTE-A was announced, infamous Twitter leaker @evleaks tweeted a press render of the Galaxy F in “glowing gold,” reiterating the possibility that this particular variant still lives on. On the other hand Samsung has already said that the Galaxy S5 LTE-A might not make it out of South Korea.
Apart from the updated processor and 3GB of RAM, the Galaxy F’s display is also expected to be bumped up in size, from 5.1-inches to 5.3-inches, with Quad HD resolution. The company hasn’t said if and when this device will hit the market so we’ll just have to sit tight and wait.
