When Samsung released their new Galaxy S5 flagship this Spring, it was as if they were almost afraid to pull the trigger and unleash the Galaxy S5 into the world. Sure it had a better display and a slightly faster Snapdragon 801 processor, and let us not forget the highly anticipated built-in fingerprint scanner and Heart Rate Monitor (yes, I am joking) – but no big Samsung Event or in-your-face attitude. It was kind of like the proud parent whose kid is in the chess club in a room full of the parents of the star football players…nobody really cares. The Galaxy S5 is a solid device and competes well against its competition…it just is not the BIG sensation that we were all expecting. However, in reality, that is all it could be – even if it would have come with a QHD display – there is no exciting processor, no 64-bit, no big camera news, and no sleek, new look…now Samsung could have done something about the last two items, but without the whole package, it would have disappointing.
There were rumors from day one about a hyped-up Galaxy S coming out since the release of the Galaxy S5 – like Samsung was apologizing for the original version. It was like we did the Galaxy S5, its not drawing the attention we thought that it would, so let’s hurry and get out a better version and call it “Premium” or “Prime” or to really make it seem like the Galaxy S5 wasn’t a complete flop, let’s call it the Galaxy F series – that’s it, we will make a new and better series. So rumors of the Galaxy F are swirling around and our friendly leaker, @evleaks, has given us yet another press render of the Galaxy F, this time in the brushed gold color – is it really metal or is it a ‘metallic-like’ finish on the new LG G3…we do not know at this time.
Besides the metal-like backing, the Galaxy F is thought to sport a new Snapdragon 805, designed specifically to handle the new QHD display that is also supposed to be on the Galaxy F. The big camera news is that Samsung will finally include OIS to help quiet the critics. They will also up the RAM from 2GB to 3GB and decrease the bezel size and rumor has it being released in September…but these are all strictly rumors, as no official word is out yet.
Are you ‘primed’ for the new and improved Galaxy F, or is it still not enough – please let us know on our Google+ Page how you feel about the new Galaxy F – are you excited, disappointed, or just don’t care…as always, we would love to hear from you.
