The Samsung Galaxy S5 is an undeniably top-notch smartphone, that is a fact. But when compared to the HTC One M8, iPhone 5S, Sony Xperia Z2 and LG G3, the Samsung flagship feels a little cheap.
But there are rumors that a premium version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is in the works in South Korea – with a shiny new chassis and a bumped up screen. It will be called Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime or perhaps Samsung Galaxy F, according to multiple sources.
The release date of the rumored handset has been tipped for mid-June, but it’s looking less likely to appear with time running out this month.
One report said that Samsung will only make a limited number of Galaxy S5 Prime because there are some complications in the production of the QHD display.
However, a Twitter leaker @evleaks received a tip claiming that a Samsung Galaxy F(which is said to be the same as the Galaxy S5 Prime) will be released this coming September.
If it is true, then Samsung will most likely be going head to head against Apple’s iPhone 6.
There?s nothing to be surprised about if the device turns out to be pretty expensive
It is said to be around US$880 according to information garnered by Naver.com. And the price in other territories is likely to be higher thanks to taxes and other costs.
This is one of the major rumored upgrade the Galaxy S5 Prime is said to have. Samsung tipped to equip the device with a 5.2 inch, 2,560 x 1,440 display.
Multiple sources are all pointing towards the “QHD display”, making it the most viable option for the Galaxy S5 Prime.
While the Galaxy S5 has a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, Samsung fans may be in for a treat because some reports are suggesting that the S5 Prime will sport the new 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 chip. It would make it one of the first handset to do so.
The handset is apparently coming with the unreleased Android 4.4.3 KitKat platform. That is a slight step up from Galaxy S5’s Android 4.4.2 operating system.
If Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime really has a QHD display, the battery life of the handset should be excellent to ensure that users won’t have to plug after just a couple of hours.
Reports suggest that the Galaxy S5 Prime will be equipped with a 3000mAh battery, slightly larger than the 2800mAh battery of the Galaxy S5.
But just like the S5, it is expected to include the extreme power saving mode function to help battle the drain from that screen.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime looks set to adopt the same 16 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front snapper of the S5 with 4k video recording on board.
