Samsung has voiced their concern over the Galaxy S5, dropping the Head of Mobile Design and reportedly preparing to launch a new flagship smartphone later this year, named the Galaxy F or Galaxy S5 Prime, which will be a higher-end phone with a more premium look.

Some new photos of the Galaxy F have leaked out and it looks like Samsung will be adding a brushed metal back to the device. The LG G3 had the same sort of look, but it turned out to be plastic and not metal, sadly. The phone has still been loved more than the Galaxy S5 in the early few months, even in South Korea where the Samsung phone is normally dominant.

Apart from the brushed metal finish, the Galaxy F does differentiate itself from the Galaxy S5 in other ways. The display on the Galaxy F will be a 2K display, that 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, Samsung is obviously feeling the burn of releasing a 1080p device in a year when 2K displays are a thing.

Internally the Galaxy F will run a Snapdragon 805 SoC, a step up from the Snapdragon 801 but nothing to brag about, the phone will also have 3GB of RAM, 1GB more than the Galaxy S5. No more information on the internals has been revealed, although we expect to see the fingerprint and heart-rate sensor make a return.

The design also keeps the IP67 certification rating, meaning the Galaxy F will be water resistant and dust-proof. We hope Samsung actually look at making the design metal and not faux metal like the LG G3, even if it means sacrificing the removable back and battery.

Nobody knows if the rumor will stick, but the new photos give it room to breathe. Samsung should announce this phone before the end of Q2 2014, considering the Galaxy Note 4 will be launched in September at IFA.
