Samsung critics love to point out that the company coats its high-end smartphones in cheap plastic instead of using metal or another high-end material, and it looks like the company is finally taking these complaints to heart. A new image obtained by @evleaks reveals a first look at the alleged Galaxy F and its metal design.
The Galaxy F is still just a rumor, and @evleaks makes that clear with his phrasing, calling the leak “another alleged image of the supposed Samsung Galaxy F.” Samsung is still making plenty of money with its lineup of plastic phones and tablets, and there’s no guarantee a metal device is even in development. It’s also very real that this is metallic and simply looks like metal, like the LG G3. Also, note that the front face is clearly plastic. Even so, if the device looks anything like the beautiful smartphone pictured above we hope it’s real.
Samsung’s metal smartphone is still just a rumor, but it’s definitely not out of the realm of possibility. Recent reports suggest the company could release a high-end version of the Galaxy S5 sometime this summer in an effort to stay competitive, and the Galaxy F may just be that device.
