The launch of Samsung's next flagship device, widely expected to be dubbed Galaxy S5, could be followed by unveiling of Galaxy F, a new premium smartphone, reveals a new report. The report also suggests that Samsung has started mass-producing metal chassis for its alleged Galaxy S5, very much in-line with earlier reports.
Further, the report suggests that the alleged Galaxy F could be Samsung's 'super premium' variant, carrying the model number SM-G900F of the yet-to-be-announced Galaxy S5 smartphone. Now, considering that Galaxy F is said to be a variant of the rumored Galaxy S5, it seems that the report is referring to the mass-production of the alleged Galaxy F. The report also sheds some light on Samsung's plan to launch the alleged Galaxy F soon after company's rumored Galaxy S5 hits the market.
Sammobile cites a Korean publication and claims that the alleged Samsung Galaxy F will sport a metal body and could be launched in 2014 after the release of rumored Galaxy S5. The report informs that Samsung's alleged Galaxy F's metallic prototype was manufactured in Europe and then moved to South Korean giant's Vietnam production unit. An earlier report had suggested that the South Korean manufacturer has plans to release two versions of the alleged Galaxy S5.
As per the report, there would be two variants of the Galaxy S5: a premium variant sporting a metal chassis and a flexible OLED, and a variant which would come with the usual plastic body, as found on other Galaxy smartphones. The latest report seems to point to the fact these would be the Galaxy F and Galaxy S5 respectively whether that turns out to be true, remains to be seen.
Samsung, which has been using plastic material for its devices, was rumored to finally change gears and introduce a metal chassis for its next flagship smartphone. As of now, there is no word on whether Samsung plans to launch two smartphones with metal body.
