Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime reported to go official in June with Quad-HD display, blurred image leaked (Update)

Last week, media reports suggested that the Project KQ that indicates the premium version of the Galaxy S5 is in its advanced development phase. This alleged Samsung project is scheduled to be released in the coming months, claims a report from Korean newspaper AsiaToday. Based on information from anonymous industry sources, it is rumored that this Samsung phone will go official in June.


Going by the previous reports, Project KQ could be called the Galaxy S5 Prime and will feature a 5.2-inch Quad-HD display featuring 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution translating to an increased pixel density of 564 pixels per inch.

As usual, the South Korean tech firm is said to roll out different variants of the Project KQ with each one packing a different chipset. The South Korean variant is rumored to sport the latest octa-core Exynos 5430 chipset that combines two quad-core processors – 2.1GHz Cortex-A15 and 1.5GHz Cortex-A7 respectively. And the international variant could come with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC.

Of course, the Galaxy S5 Prime is aimed to compete with the upcoming LG flagship model – LG G3 that is also tipped to arrive with a QHD display. LG is claimed to announce this handset in late June or early July and if the Samsung’s Project KQ goes official in June, there will surely be a tough battle in the smartphone industry.

Update: As pointed out by the good folks of SamMobile, the image above is photoshopped and is actually of the Galaxy Note 3, and not of the upcoming Galaxy S5 Prime.

In addition to the news, an alleged image of unknown Samsung smartphone has been leaked online. The image is of low quality and is said to be of the upcoming Galaxy S5 Prime. As you can see, the phone has metallic build with extended edge, which does not matches the Galaxy S5. Since nothing is confirmed yet, its better to take the image and the news with a pinch of salt.
