Samsung Galaxy F leaked in Perfect Gold

Samsung Galaxy F leaked in Perfect GoldYou can always count on Samsung for some frankly ridiculous colour names, such as Black Forest (as in the gateau?), and not forgetting Purple Mirage and Brown Autumn, which sound more like porn stars than smartphones.

The latest pertains to the as-yet-unannounced (but leaked millions of times over) Samsung Galaxy F, shown in… wait for it… Perfect Gold.

It’s twitter-based @evleaks sharing the Samsung Galaxy F again, this time with a purported press shot depicting the super-smartphone in obligatory gold.

In typical @evleaks fashion, Evan doesn’t care to say much, leaving us instead to draw our own conclusions.

And one of those conclusions is that the gold Samsung Galaxy F piccie might well be fake, as “Wed, 12 September” – the date shown on the phone – isn’t valid for 2014, the 12th being a Friday.

Genuine or otherwise, it’s not too much of a stretch to imagine the Samsung Galaxy F coming in gold, as it’s very much intended to be a premium handset, coming in one notch above the just-released Galaxy S5.

Rumoured Samsung Galaxy F specs include a QHD (2560 x 1440) display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, and 3GB of RAM.

The Samsung Galaxy F launch will likely be timed to draw attention from the LG G3, which is the first big-name QHD smartphone, while the release might well aim to punch the iPhone 6 in the nuts.

Using an M8. It shipped with a rubber case. Put it on. Looks and feels like a plastic Lumia... or any of a few hundred other phones.
Matt's right: metal, schmetal....

It's true, metal phones only gained their popularity because reviewers are using phones which aren't their own and they haven't paid hundreds of pounds/euros/dollars for, so they have no incentive to use a case.

Most normal people who actually pay for their phones either use a cheap TPU/silicone case or a cheap plastic-leather case; both of which negate the "premium" feel of metal devices. You end up simply carrying around a phone which is heavier than necessary and transfers more energy to the fragile glass display if you drop it.

Honestly, metal and glass (excluding the screen) phones are fools purchase, always have been, always will be. Plastic is tough, durable and light, pretty much the perfect properties for a material with which to make phones out of.
