Samsung certainly hasn't shied away from very public battles with Apple, and the Korean manufacture may indeed be ready for another big rumble this fall with a premium smartphone said to rival even the next iPhone.
Frequently reliable internet leaker @evleaks is back today with another Twitter blast, this one claiming Samsung's high-flying premium Galaxy F smartphone could very well wind up encroaching upon Apple's turf in 90 days or so.
According to an unnamed tipster, the Samsung Galaxy F will be "allegedly launching in September," a month many smartphone makers wisely avoid, lest they be crushed by a throng of new iPhone buyers.
Samsung apparently refuses to blink, truly bringing a gun to a knife fight with the Galaxy F, a high-end upgrade to the Galaxy S5 rumored to feature a luscious 5.2-inch quad HD display with a 2K resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
What the F?
Rumblings of a Galaxy smartphone with even more panache than Samsung's Galaxy S5 started making the rounds last fall, when industry sources claimed the Android kingpin was targeting a March 2014 launch for the device.
Needless to say, that timeframe has come and gone, but the Galaxy F has since turned up in a number of leaked images which seem to confirm Samsung's plans for a 2K resolution screen.
Also on deck to make Galaxy S5 owners really feel the buyer's remorse: A quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor with an extra-generous 3GB of RAM and a rumored 16MP rear camera.
Of course, we still don't know exactly what Apple has up their sleeve with this year's iPhone 6, so it's likely to be a long, hot summer keeping up with a string of leaks from both camps before either Seoul or Cupertino shows their hands.
