The Galaxy S5 may have just hit store shelves and the hands of users, but it seems as if Samsung is already planning an upgraded version of its flagship device. According to a report from SamMobile (via Phandroid), the Galaxy S5 Prime will launch in June. In addition to the quad-HD (2560×1440) display, the device would also feature higher-end specs than the Galaxy S5:

“The device could debut the new octa-core Exynos 5430 processor that sports an integrated Intel LTE modem, clock speeds of up to 2.1 GHz on the powerful Cortex-A15 cores and 1.5GHz on the low-power Cortex-A7 cores, and the Mali T6XXX GPU rated at 600MHz.”

Rumors also point towards the device potentially carrying a metallic design, though that seems unlikely at this point.

To add more validity to the likelihood of this device’s existence, a variation of the Galaxy S5 with the model number of SM-G906S has appeared on Samsung’s official website. That same device has appeared before in graphics and benchmarking software, where it was indicated that the device had a 2560×1440 display.

The Galaxy S5 Prime looks to be Samsung’s answer to the upcoming LG G3, which is also rumored to include a quad-HD display, as well as other state-of-the-art specs. With the Galaxy S5 having just launched worldwide, it will be interesting to see whether or not there is a public backlash for such a quick release cycle.

One Response to “Galaxy S5 “Prime” reportedly coming this June with quad-HD display as model number leaks”

  1. try to follow me:

    – SM-G90xS/K/L are KOREAN versions (three main korean mobile carriers), SM-G900S was also tested with wqhd display but ended with fhd
    – SM-G906K is snapdragon 805 / 3gb version limited to korea ONLY and will be aviable in very limited quantities if it will hit market at the end
    – exynos 5430 has 4x A7 / 1.7Ghz not 1.5 Ghz and Mali T6XX not Mali T6XXX clocked not rated at 600 Mhz and as both benchmarked (SM-G906S and SM-G906K) units had snapdragon on board it is very unlikely that the third will run exynos 5430
    – SM-G906x is aviable at findmymobile site since galaxy s5 launch basicly so fact that it could be found there means nothing at all

    – there will be ~40 million wqhd SMARTPHONE displays manufactured this year by ALL display makers, giving that samsung might be preparing only one wqhd smartphone model for this year and it will be aviable in very limited quantites it is either SM-G906x or Note4 to get the usless showoff wqhd bump
    – SM-G906S/K/L might as well be the swarovski limited edition as those swarovski series are very very limited
    – June date is a total shot in the dark based on zauba shipping dates and fact that device needs to clear fcc, bt, rra and others ;]
