Samsung Galaxy F pictured, shows metal body and large display

Many enthusiasts and analysts were disappointed when Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5, mainly because its design was so similar to previous flagship smartphones. The majority of the 5.1-incher is made of plastic and outfitted with a soft plastic backing. Even though the company successfully sold over 11 million units in its first month, Samsung is in need of a new ‘premium’ smartphone.

Several leaks suggest the Galaxy F is the new direction and will come with a thinner bezel, larger display, faster processor and a metal body. Earlier today, via @evleaks, another shot of the anticipated device has found its way online and shows the metal frame with the familiar physical home button.

The rumoured specs include a 5.3-inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16MP camera with OIS (optical image stabilization), 32GB of internal storage, water and dust resistance, fingerprint scanner and a heart rate sensor. There is no word yet on an official release date or pricing.
