A new rumor suggests that the body of the Samsung Galaxy F smartphone will be made up of stainless steel and plastic materials. It was long rumored that Samsung will launch two new flagships in mid-2014, one as a successor to the Galaxy S4 and the other with a metal body known as the Galaxy F. But it now seems like even the Galaxy F will have some plastic in it after all. The idea of using steel and plastic is not bad really, but it is being said that Samsung will only use this on the Galaxy F, while the Galaxy S5 will still be made up of polycarbonate or plastic.
However, the fact that the company is willing to make a shift from the traditional polycarbonate flagships which appear a bit monotonous these days, is commendable and will go a long way in making Samsung devices more appealing to the public. It is said that Samsung will use a stainless steel for the back cover of the Galaxy F so as to not increase the weight while the rest of the device will be made up of plastic. This is in order to reduce weight while keeping the looks premium. There’s still a lot more to be known about the Galaxy F and we can expect more leaks to come our way as we inch closer to the launch in a couple of months from now.
