Samsung working on a new line of smartphones due to launch in March 2014
Samsung is reportedly working on a new F smartphone lineup, which is expected to debut in March 2014.
The Korean company's Galaxy S and Galaxy Note smartphone lineups have seen several generations of handsets, with the latest devices launched this year. Samsung may now launch a new smartphone lineup, which will be placed in the premium-market sector.
A recent ETNews report (translated) states that Samsung's F lineup of smartphones will have powerful hardware specifications with high-end camera features. The upcoming F series of smartphones will also sport a metallic body unlike the plastic body found on the current Samsung smartphones, including the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3.
Details regarding Samsung's next F series of smartphones are scarce but some rumors suggest that the impending smartphones may have a screen size between 4.5-inch to 5.5-inch and boast flexible displays. An Exynos Octa-processor may power the handsets.
Many smartphone owners now use their handsets to take photos on a regular basis. The new Samsung smartphone line may be equipped with a 16-megapixel camera featuring optical image stabilization (OIS) technology.
"Since Samsung likely plans on premium prices for its F series, mass production issues of its components won't be a deterrent, like they were with the eventual flexible YOUM screen and OIS tech for the Note 3, which still might happen, but in much smaller batches. Such a strategy will allow Samsung to cover each and every market segment and price point - from the extreme low-end to the exclusive premium editions," reports Phone Arena.
A recent report also suggests that Samsung is planning to launch its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, which will sport a metal body. However, if the F series of smartphones is placed in the premium-market section and sports metal casings, does it mean that the next-generation Galaxy S5 won't have a metal body?
The company has not yet announced its plans regarding the F line-up of smartphones. Samsung may reveal some information on the upcoming F-series in the next few months, but for now we will have to wait until more rumors emerge.
