New “leaked” photos of Samsung’s flagship smartphone has surfaced, and it could debunk a previous speculation about the phone body’s material.
Rumors have been going around for a while that Samsung will release a “premium” variant of its popular Galaxy S5 smartphone, dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime or Galaxy F, sometime in September.
Recently, it has been speculated that the phone will feature a metal body, but photos of a pre-production model sent to PhoneArena by one of their readers indicates that it may not be the case.
Rather, the phone appears to have a plastic cover with a design or paint that makes it look like it has a brushed metal finish.
The “leaked” image also reveals a very thin bezel that does look like it could be made of metal.
If that is the case, then this is in line with information provided by a Korean website, which indicates that the Galaxy “Prime” or Galaxy F is a metal/plastic hybrid.
So far, the “premium” Galaxy S5 has been rumored to have a 5.2-inch Display with 2560×1440 QHD Resolution, 3GB of RAM, a 16MP Rear Camera and 2MP Front Camera, and a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 Quad-Core Processor. The phone is also expected to run Google Android KitKat 4.4.
As there is no official confirmation from Samsung at this point, all information remains purely speculative at this stage.
