A new Samsung flagship is reportedly in the works

When the rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S5 first started raining down upon us, we were pelted with hopes of a metal body and a gorgeous QHD display. When the smartphone was officially announced, we were greeted with what was more evolution than revolution — that meant a slight bump in screen size to 5.1 inches, the same 1080p resolution, and a body that was still constructed primarily of plastic.

We’re now getting a few more glimpses of the next Samsung “flagship” with specs matching what people were first expecting with the Galaxy S5. The so-called Galaxy F will reportedly be announced in September according to serial leaker @evleaks.

Reports suggest that the Galaxy F will come equipped with a QHD (2560x1440) display like the LG G3, and will actually sport a full metal back (unlike the faux-metallic G3). There are also reports that a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor will be onboard to provide not only faster processing speeds to fuel the QHD display, but also a fast onboard modem courtesy of the 225Mbps LTE-A Qualcomm MDM9635.

Considering the S5 already costs an arm and a leg, how much is this supposed to set you back?

And arm, a leg, and a kidney.

I would bet the S5 drops and this takes its place at the $199 w/ 2yr contract spot. Maybe $299 at release and $199 within a month or two at the worst.

We finally switched to smart phones Saturday. GS5s for both of us. $99 with a 2 year contract. Funny thing that EVERY person (literally) that walked into Verizon picked up a GS5. Only heard iPhone mentioned from my coworkers wife constantly bitching about it to the sales rep.

Yeah, it's happening where I work too. 2011 and 2012, it was all "iPhone iPhone iPhone" 2013 started to shift and now, everyone wants bigger screens period. Not even that they weren't happy with their iDevices, or how they operated, they just want bigger screens to take advantage of all todays smartphones can do.
