Samsung Galaxy F with metal unibody could replace Galaxy S as

Samsung is rumoured to be planning a new flagship Galaxy device, potentially called the Samsung Galaxy F, which will ditch the polycarbonate plastic of its predecessors for a metal unibody design.
Samsung's wide-ranging Galaxy family covers everything from the flagship Galaxy S4smartphone and Galaxy Note 3 phablet to theGalaxy Tab 3 tablet, Galaxy Young budget phone and even the Galaxy NX camera.
All these portable devices share one feature beyond their use of Google's Android operating system: they use a polycarbonate plastic for the bulk of their body, much like Apple's recently-launched iPhone 5c.

With Samsung's major rivals like HTC and Apple using metal unibody designs for their flagship devices, however, this leaves Samsung's products feeling cheaper than their specifications and pricing would suggest. This has led to rumours that the company was planning a switch to metal for at least the higher-end models in its Galaxy line-up.
Now, that rumour has apparently confirmed by industry sources speaking to ET News, who claim that Samsung is looking to launch a top-end family dubbed the Galaxy F series. The first device will apparently include a robust metal unibody design, a high-resolution camera with optical image stabilisation, and Samsung's eight-core Exynos Octa processor.
Samsung, for its part, has not commented on the claims nor on any possible future product launches.
