The first leaked photo of the purported Samsung Galaxy F, a premium version of the Galaxy S5 flagship, reveals a metal chassis which is unsurprisingly a copy of the iPhone 5/5s metal frame. According to GSMArena, the widely rumoured Galaxy F will sport similar specs to the Galaxy S5, featuring a QHD display and Snapdragon 805 chipset with 3GB of RAM.
“As you can see the frame is quite similar to the iPhone 5/5s one, while the front looks the same as the Galaxy S5. According to our insider source, the Galaxy F is very similar with the Galaxy S5, with a removable plastic back but with aluminum frame identical with the latest iPhones.”
The Galaxy F has been previously leaked in official-like renders, showing super-thin bezels among other details. But today’s leak is the first to reveal the chamfered metal chassis running along the edge, something we have been seeing in the past two generations of iPhone chassis. It must be noted though that the back cover is still believed to be plastic, unlike iPhone 5/5s.
So guys, what do you say about Samsung’s persistent Apple design copying strategy?
