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.

I don't like all the unnecessary glass on Samsung phones. It makes the whole thing vulnerable to critical damage from falling on a corner when a plastic or rubber edge could protect it from cracking

Funny how the mention of metal right in the title has managed to elude you.

That and I am not sure what glass he is referring to on any Samsung phone. Samsung is well known for plastic phones. Of course the front is gorilla glass, but so are all phones. How does Samsung differ in this from any other phone maker?

The iPhone 4 and 4s has glass backs I think, but I am not aware of Any Samsung that had that.

I'm talking about the front. By making it glass corner to corner, even in areas where you don't interface with the phone, it makes a corner drop deadly for the phone. So, you damage the corner glass and the whole screen is broken. The glass on my older HTC ends where the interface ends, giving almost 1cm of plastic between the corner of the screen and the corner of the phone. So, dropping it on the corner means it won't break the screen. All Samsung, new HTC, iPhones, that I have seen, have this flaw of corner to corner glass even over non-interface areas. That is my problem with a lot of current out-of-the-box smart phones: they are made to break easily.
