Samsung CEO JK Shin has officially denied the possibility of the arrival of a premium version of the Galaxy S5, which is expected to feature a metal body. The CEO has discarded all the rumors about the existence of such smartphone, and confirmed a new model of Galaxy Note, which will be available in the fall.
Earlier, there were numerous rumors about the existence of a premium model made up with more precious metal than the traditional plastic when the company announced the Galaxy S5.
Previous rumors suggest the premium version is likely to come under a new brand the Galaxy F. There’re possibilities that JK Shin has made his statement to keep the existence of such a model confidential. In fact, the Galaxy F is rumored to have an all-new metal body, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and qHD display. Therefore, it will be totally new smartphone, not just a premium variant of the Galaxy S5.
However, Samsung has been reluctant to abandon the plastic so far, and after the statement of its CEO, it’s seems quite unlikely that decides to grant the Galaxy F. Moreover, Samsung may face negative response upon arrival of such device, which is having similar specifications, design and form factor except exterior. However, don’t be surprised to see the contrary move, because the South Korean company has already done something similar by launching Galaxy S4 Black Edition in the UK.
