Alleged Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime shows up in India

Alleged Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime shows up in India

It has long been rumored that Samsung planned to release a higher end version of its premium Samsung Galaxy S5 in the shape of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. This model, if the rumours are to be believed, is going to be an attempt to get at Apple when they launch their iPhone 6 later on in the year.

Samsung continues to deny the existence of the phone but this makes sense since people would simply wait for the better version to show up instead of upgrading to the Samsung Galaxy S5 right now. It would probably upset people that a better version of the phone they just bought is going to be released. No matter how many times Samsung denies that the phone is in existence, it keeps on making small cameo’s online. An SM-G906S/K has popped up in a shipping manifest in India. It is believed to be the regional variant of the actual Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. Four of the devices shipped out of South Korea, apparently for purposes of Research and Development but other than this nothing much has been revealed about them.

The alleged phone recently made an appearance and is said to feature the following specs:

Rumored Galaxy S5 Prime Specs
Display 2560x1440 5.2 Inch

2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor with Adreno 420 GPU

Camera 16 MP rear/ 2MP front-facing
Storage 32 GB
Operating System Android 4.4.2 KitKat

These specs are what some were expecting from the Galaxy S5. Again consumers wouldn’t be too happy seeing other people later on in the year getting a better phone than them when they paid for a high end device earlier in the year.

What do you make of the whole Galaxy S5 Prime business? Please leave us a comment below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

    Just call it a Sapple . New company politics new name!

  • I agree, I have an S3 and I thought about an S4 and then the S5 came out but my S 3 keeps running fine so I guess I can wait for what I want. I want Samsung, with 4 gig of Ram or better, 32 Ram built in storage, an Octo Snapdragon monster CPU, and a forward Camara with 8 megapixals or better. BUT, in a few weeks after that comes a better and faster.

  • Samsung always do this Thank god I didn't jump straight on the s5 wonder if they are going to make this available internationally.

  • What?! Still a 2MP front camera? Even the budget phone offerings from Indian manufacturers like Micromax have a 5MP front camera. Not to mention OPPO N1 with a 13MP swivel camera. Just two things are lacking : HD audio speakers (the existing ones are horrible!) and a higher resolution front camera.

  • yeah i still got my Nexus 4 working well for me

    I used to get pissed off when I buy my high end phone and few months later another phone comes to the market maybe from another company. now I buy what I'm convinced with and as long is serving me well like my S4, there can be S10 outside, I just don't care anymore :)
