Rumor: Move over Galaxy S, Samsung to launch Galaxy F series of premium devices

Samsung galaxy s 4 design generic

Samsung has taken the world by storm with its Galaxy line of products. From the Galaxy S, to the Galaxy Note, Samsung is a world leader in smartphones. But they still can’t quite seem to get the whole quality materials thing down. With every new Galaxy S and Note release, there’s a rumor that Samsung is switching to a new premium design. And every time, Samsung introduces yet another slimy plastic device. Well, don’t get your hopes up for a premium aluminum Galaxy S 5 anytime soon, but the Galaxy F might be just what you’re looking for.

Citing industry sources, ETNews.com is saying that early next year, Samsung will be introducing a new series of devices to their Galaxy line of products. Seated below the Note in size, and above the Galaxy S in quality, the Samsung Galaxy F will be Samsung’s answer to those of us who have been begging the company to lose the shiny plastic trim.

The Galaxy F will reportedly feature a new, sleek, metal design, along with top-of-the-line internals. This move would still keep the Note firmly positioned where it’s been sitting since its arrival, as an interesting yet popular niche device, but would push Galaxy S devices into a more consumer friendly position. A Galaxy F will also give Samsung three flagship devices that can be spread out throughout the year to better compete with the likes of LG, HTC, Sony and Apple.

For right now this is all still a rumor; one we’d particularly like to see come true. I’ve been using a Galaxy S 4 for some time now, and as much as I like the device, it’s hard not to be envious of HTC One and iPhone 5 users. I know a lot of you don’t agree and actually like the plastic housing and all the perks that come along with it (removable battery), but there is a market for more premium Samsung devices. All Samsung needs to do is release one.
