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.

There is always something better on the horizon, either from the same company or another. If you must have the latest greatest, you will need to buy it (either financed or outright). There is no real way to stay up to date in any other way.

That is the way computing works, especially in a relatively new class of computing, like smartphones.

Make the most educated decision you can when you want to buy, and either be prepared to live with it when (not if) it is no longer the best device out there.

I have my LGG2 and love it. Would I love an LGG3 even more? Sure, but not enough to pay the extra money at this point.

I have a G2 also and am perfectly happy with it. Not sure I want the G3 even if my contract was up.

I have a G2 and am getting a G3 for sure... But only because I get one every year on our corp account and Verizon knocks it down to every 10 months.

If it were my own 2 year contract, I would be fine with waiting. The G2 is a great phone today and will still be great through 2015. The G3's existence simple doesn't affect it.

Ya, it is... I am not sure if its on all corp accounts or what, we aren't a huge company with any special perks. We have 600 total people so I assume its for all corp accounts...

Anyhow, on our Verizon portal, when we buy a phone we get the standard 2yr contract at the standard price ($199 for starting high end phone) For an extra $20 we can change the contract terms from 2 to 1 year. Then by default Verizon always shaves 2 months off. So the 1 year is now 10 months before I am eligible for upgrade. My G2 costed $219 for a 10 month contract... Now in July its up and my G3 will also be $219 and I will be eligible in May '15. Whoot!
