Samsung is tired of hearing your cruel barbs about its smartphones being made from cheap-feeling plastic. Korea’s ETNews reports that Samsung plans to release a new line of “premium” smartphones dubbed the “Galaxy F” series sometime next year. Unlike its current Galaxy S series, the Galaxy F models will reportedly be made from metal to match the build quality of premium phones such as the iPhone 5s and the HTC One. This lends credence to a report we read earlier this week that Samsung was considering using metal for its Galaxy S5 smartphone next year, although that particular report made no mention of Samsung launching a whole new smartphone line. We will say this, though: a gorgeous Samsung display coupled with a well-built aluminum casing sounds very enticing indeed.
