Galaxy S5 Prime said to arrive in June with a Quad HD display to tackle the LG G3 directly
The alleged Galaxy S5 Prime might have been busted as non-existent by Samsung execs, but they didn't deny the existence of a "luxury" F-line in the making. It is supposed to start with a flagship that will have top-shelf specs like a Quad HD display, a more premium design, and higher price, and will eventually come in limited quantities. Sounds like a recipe for success for those who are jonesing for a more appealing design from a Samsung flagship, plus the company will get to have a direct rival to the LG G3, which is widely rumored to have a Quad HD screen in its turn.
The quantity limitation of the premium phone, however, is now reported by Korean media to come naturally, as Samsung is simply not able to produce Super AMOLED displays with 1440x2560 pixels of resolution in meaningful quantities to satisfy the sales forecast of a blockbuster handset. Moreover, such a panel costs much more to produce than a QHD screen based on the LCD technology, which LG is said to be using for the G3.
