We could be closer to the launch of Samsung’s rumored “premium” Galaxy S5 sooner than we thought. According to sources of AsiaToday’s, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime should be headed our way this June, which is only about a month and some change away by our calendar’s count. It’s said Samsung will be focusing on North America and Europe for this device, though we’re not sure how wide a net they’ll cast in terms of carrier availability.
So what’s different compared to the Galaxy S5 already available? How’s a 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 display and 2.1GHz Samsung Exynos 5430 Octa-Core chipset sound?
That’s about all we know of so far, but there could be other notable differences compared to the original Galaxy S5 once details are finally made official. Anyone looking to hold out in hopes of getting this over the “ordinary” version? Let us know in the comments below!
[Update]: evidence of the device’s existence has surfaced on Samsung’s website. The model umber SM-G906S has appeared in the company’s Find My Mobile page as an alternative model of the Galaxy S5, which is the same model number of an unknown device with 2560 x 1440 resolution that once appeared in a GFX Bench benchmark. That’s not solid confirmation on its own, but something clearly exists that Samsung is planning to bring into the light soon.
