Samsung Galaxy F (S5 Premium): Would You Buy It If It Would Look Like This?

by Mihai Matei on March 11, 2014


The Samsung Galaxy S5 conceals no more mysteries, as the handset in question has been made official during MWC. Fans of the series who were hoping that the SGS5 would deliver a more premium design have been somewhat disappointed. Don’t get us wrong; the S5 is a good looking device (at least in our eyes), but it still lacks those premium quality materials that we were all rooting for. It looks as if the Korean tech giant is not really putting a lot of effort in this area, despite the fact that the high-end Android market has grown during these past couple of years, and has delivered some really powerful handsets – design-wise.

But, all is not lost, as we might eventually see a Galaxy smartphone boasting a metal case and a premium quality build. There’s been a lot of commotion on the blogosphere during these past several months, concerning the idea that Samsung is getting ready to launch a Galaxy S5 Premium (or Samsung Galaxy F / SGS5 Prime). Samsung fans were hoping to see this beast during the Mobile World Congress, but we all know it didn’t happen. Nevertheless, the idea of a Galaxy S5 Premium has attracted some great concept artists out there, and one of the latest concepts looks pretty damn interesting. Check it out, and join us below for more.

Samsung Galaxy F (S5 Premium) Concept

The gallery you see above depicts a pretty epic concept created by Ivo Marić. Yes, what you’re looking at is not actually real, despite how great the renders are. This is a fan made concept, and what we’d like to hear from you is whether or not you’d buy the Galaxy F if it would look like this.

Some interesting design cues are obviously the choice of materials (metal case and all), the sharp edges and the dedicated camera button.

Spec-wise, the Galaxy F is rumored to pack similar hardware components as the Galaxy S5 – the main difference being that the F would make a first step into QHD territory, and would deliver a 1440 x 2560 display.


As a reminder, previous rumors have indicated that the Galaxy F series is meant to fill the gap between the Galaxy S and Note devices. As for the reasons why Samsung would choose this route instead of simply creating a premium S5 out of the box, well, you can find all these details in our previous report on the matter.

Until we get to learn more about the Samsung Galaxy F / S5 Premium, share your thoughts on the concept in the comment section.

    NO WAY! That phone is ugly as balls!! Even though that’s a concept of a supposedly “metal” Galaxy F, it looks like the cheapest plastic I’ve ever seen. Also that chassis is horribly designed and impractical to hold or use. Good luck turning up the volume or taking a picture without that thing flying out of your hand.

    THIS is a good concept phone IMO:

      I kind of have to agree with Gamblor, the positioning of the side buttons is very impractical.

      Also, the design makes me think of cast iron. I know it is not the case, but it almost feels as if the phone will have a thick metal housing.

      Other than what I’ve stated above, it’s not a bad design, though, I could already see Apple crying about copy right infringement because customers might “mistaken this phone for one of their iPhones”.

      @ Gamblor, that conept you linked to also has the slanted side buttons, which makes that design just as impractical with regards to the side buttons.

    No way. I’m holding out for the S5 Prime/F/Neo/Whatever it’s going to be called, but that thing is ugly.
