Take a Fresh Look at Samsung’s Metallic Smartphone

Samsung’s Galaxy F has been rumored pretty much as long as the Galaxy S5. Originally we thought it was Samsung’s attempt to sell a metal smartphone, similar to what HTC and Apple have done with the iPhone 5s and the One (M8). New images that surfaced over the weekend however suggest Samsung is going to take the “metallic” route, which LG did with its new G3 smartphone, with a new Galaxy F device.

The images you see above look very much like plastic with a brushed aluminum effect, similar to the G3’s back cover. That means Samsung may be taking a “metallic” approach instead of a metal one. Confusing? ¬†Metallic simply means that the product will resemble metal and doesn’t actually have the premium materials smartphone enthusiasts have been clamoring for Samsung to add to its devices. That doesn’t mean the Galaxy F won’t have a few enhancements, however.

PhoneArena, which published the images, says Samsung is planning to add a 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), a 5.3-inch 2560 x 1440 quad HD display to rival the screen on the G3, a Snapdragon 805 processor and more. The phone is allegedly set to hit the market this September.
