Samsung will be targeting its much-rumoured and highly anticipated Galaxy F flagship directly at the iPhone 6, the latest rumour mill whisperings claim.
Thought to be a more premium version of the Galaxy S5, the F is said to be launching in the next couple of months and, if this latest report from the Korea Herald is true, will feature a 4.7-inch display - smaller than the 5.1-in S5 but exactly the same as the smaller of two iPhone 6s due in September.
That leaves the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 - tipped to arrive at the IFA trade show in early September - to square up against the second rumoured iPhone 6, which is thought to have a 5.5-inch screen, but may not arrive until nearer Christmas.
A 4.7-inch screen makes perfect sense if Samsung is to target the new iPhone, but this doesn’t tally with previous rumours of a Quad-HD display, as the extra resolution has less of an impact on phones smaller than five inches.
The Korea Herald’s crystal ball also claims the Galaxy F will have a metal finish - much to the relief of consumers fed up with Samsung’s shiny plastic offerings to date - and will be just 6mm thick - tiny compared to the 8.1mm Galaxy S5 and even the 7.6mm iPhone 5s.
We suggest you take this report with a pinch of salt for now, but the thought of Samsung and Apple finally launching flagship handsets at the same time is enough to get any gadget fan excited.
