    The prolific leaker himself, @evleaks just posted a couple of juicy images. They are supposedly of the Samsung Galaxy F (which is also known as the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime). The primary thing to note in the pic is the brushed aluminum look of the case. Other than that, there doesn't seem to be any notable differences from the vanilla Galaxy S5.

    The leaked pics also included some details regarding the device. In fact, the source of the rumint claims the Galaxy F will not be a new version of the Galaxy S5, but will actually be a replacement for the Galaxy S line altogether. This obviously seems dubious and @evleaks mentioned that as well. Here's the scoop,

    What do you guys think? Is this real or fake?

    For years, Sammy has been taking hits about their phones having a cheap appearance. This makes sense to me.. So my vote is real.

    I would wager that an F device does exist in some fashion. That image has obviously been altered but who knows how much or how many times. That design has possibilities whether it's real or not, the way the edge of the metal meets the glass would make it easy to put an o-ring seal there. The band-aid dots on the front look like the back of the S5 but I think a brushed look would be better. Isn't this the one that's only for Korean release?
