Chang Dong-hoon may be out as Samsung’s head of mobile design, but his influence may still be on the company for quite a while. Pictured above is an alleged photo of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, an upgrade to the South Korean electronics maker’s Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone. These images come from the folks at PhoneArena who claim the handset touts a QHD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of RAM and Android 4.4.3 KitKat all wrapped up an aluminum chassis.

The Galaxy S5 has only been on sale for a few weeks, so it’s hard to believe that Samsung would release an upgrade so soon, but stranger things have happened. In addition to a set of purported photos, video footage of an alleged pre-production model of the Galaxy S5 Prime (SM-G906A) has hit the web, showing the GS5’s rumored successor in action.
