The first alleged image of a muscled-up version of the Galaxy S5, called Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime
, has just surfaced. The S5 Prime is pictured to have a metal body, and the same heart rate sensor as the Galaxy S5. The image comes from a user on reddit, who claims to have received the image from an anonymous tipster, so basically there is nothing to back up its authenticity, and we recommend keeping a healthy grain of salt for this leak.
The tipster in this particular leak is claiming this S5 Prime will bring improvements in all specs, but this sounds just too vague to mean anything worth analyzing. All in all, what we have here is just an image, and the staggering similarity with the current S5 leaves the possibility for this to as well turn out to be just a fancy back cover for the S5, masked as the S5 Prime.
The Samsung Galaxy S5
, on its part, is already on store shelves, but this year’s most anticipated Android smartphone did not get earlier rumored features like a Quad HD display and a Snapdragon 805 system chip. That’s not all that surprising - after all, such features seemed to be a product of wishful thinking in the first place, it was simply too early for that kind of technology at the time. The rumored Galaxy S5 Prime, however, as mythical as it still is, has kept on appearing in leaks and rumors, and it's basically said to be the answer to all your spec cravings, bringing top notch technology in every aspect, but it's also expected to be priced accordingly.
What do you think of this particular leak - real or fake? And are you even looking forward to a more premium version of Samsung’s flagship, one with a Quad HD display?
