First Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime alleged live images leaked online, Samsung rumoured to be prepping products in a new category
We have often heard about Samsung launching a Galaxy S5 in premium guise but we’ve never had a face to put to the rumours. But today we have 3 images of what is being claimed as the Galaxy S5 Prime and will sit above the current flagship Galaxy S5. It will feature a premium quality of build materials and its body will be built from aluminium. It might be a bit heavy that the plastic clad sibling but the solid appeal it will bring alongside it will make up for that.
The Galaxy S5 Prime is expected to come with a 5.2-inch Quad HD display (2560 x 1440 pixels) which will be going up against the LG G3 which will also come with a QHD display albeit with a size of 5.5-inches. Ticking at its heart will be a Snapdragon 805 instead of the Snapdragon 801 in the Galaxy S5 and will feature an Adreno 420 GPU in place of the Andreno 330 GPU.
There will be a bump in the RAM department too and it will get 3GB of RAM instead of the 2GB one of the Galaxy S5. It is rumoured to run on Android 4.4.3 KitKat out of the box in all likelihood. The smartphone will feature its speakers at the bottom instead of the back, as we can see in the images. Also, Samsung is keeping the dotted textured back on the S5 Prime too.
Many would like to believe the fact that this should have been the actual device to be launched instead of the current Galaxy S5. This would also create a wave of displeasure among the current S5 owners and it remains to be seen as to how Samsung addresses that. We recommend to take the images with a pinch of salt, as nothing is confirmed yet.
