This is Galaxy F series, which is going to be metal version of Galaxy phones. It was recently announced by Samsung considering it would be same top flagship as S series.

At least Apple moved on from the yellow daisy icon for photo's which Samsung got stuck with when they copied the iPhone.... outdated so 2007.

Besides HTC will be gone soon, they can't compete with Samsung's hype it's just a matter of how long they can keep losing money.

That looks like the metal frame of an iPhone 5c, the camera and earphone jack are in the right places.

It's those that camp out at Apple stores that are the real loonies, and there are not that many of them really.

I've had a Nokia N8, iPhone 3gs and 5, and a Samsung GS2 and there is a place for the average user who just appreciates just what smartphones can do on a day to day basis. The average user doesn't care if a phone is plastic, metal, or has fringe features.

That said, I did root my SGS2 many times and I found it tedious. I did stick with Touchwiz though and a lite ROM that extended my battery life to levels that the current flagships enjoy.

Why should next Galaxy go bigger? S4 is not bigger than S3 , and Note 3 is not bigger than Note 2 or Note 1. Even with lager screens. Right?
No single reason Samsung to go for the cheap and ugly "premium" tin-can, either.

No reason to believe this iRumor, made just to convince izombies that they also have something "better" , too. Because the izombies have nothing left to brag about, anymore.

First, you're confusing design with build and quality.

Second, your comment about Apple build quality being better than Samsung is factually incorrect, as the past 2 years Apple has more quality issues than does Samsung, despite both using manufacturing plants in China (search iphone 5 quality issues problems).

This is ridiculous, why do they have to make it bigger every year? This isn't a phablet. Galaxy S3 is as big as I'm willing to go.

Or maybe it's just an insignificant mobile communications device and people out here in the real world have way more important things to worry about.

God, how lame and stupid are the Apple haters here?
It's pathetic and hilarious at the same time.

I'm laughing at how people put so much importance into little smartphones.

You'll never be taken seriously if you don't have a balanced opinion on all smartphones.

Can Samsung stop at 5", what sort of logic is this that every year you need a larger screen?
