Smartphone gossip hounds are in raptures today, after a new tidbit from the renowned @evleaks Twitter account teased what appears to be a long-awaited, premium-build Galaxy phone.
Pictures of a previously unseen Samsung device, dubbed the Galaxy F, have surfaced on the social media platform, showing a new, metal–clad handset.
Interestingly, it seems that this won’t be a variant of Samsung’s top–end Galaxy S5, but will replace it completely.
Word is that Sammy wants to freshen up its top end brand and stop using ever-higher numbers which can confuse consumers.
While specs are thin on the ground, a design change for the Galaxy range has been needed for some time.
Samsung is also said to be readying a so–called Prime version of the S5, although it’s unclear when this phone will hit shelves.
@evleaks reckons the Galaxy F will be unveiled in September. That tallies with the annual IFA trade show in Berlin, where Samsung traditionally touts new kit.
The Galaxy F may finally be the phone that Samsung needs in order to impress those left cold by its cheap–looking, plastic designs.
