Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime alleged first picture appears, but we remain doubtful
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.
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?

i though they fired the designer chief, but seems like its in their blood

I think its happened after the design of S5 Prime.

Its Just the back cover. They now have back covers that replace the existing S5 cover and battery with a 7500mha battery for $45. There is even downloadable 3D printed covers for the S5 now. Just one of the many perks owning an S5.

Seems pretty fake. You can get such covers for $10 on ebay.
Samsung is pretty good at keeping design secrets of its flagship these days. I doubt if we'll ever see anything until few days from the announcement.

First of all it smells fake, second it doesn't look like a metal, it looks like a glossy plastic.

Best phone just got even better? I like plastic on S5 though...removable storage + mSD card. Let's hope Samsung doesnt skimp out on that moving to a new material although the nice premium feel is definitely welcome :P

Leave the prime away instead of plastic....

Just changing the material isn't everything. I think the biggest flaw of SS devices is the design itself. Then the finish of the material. Plastic doesn't have to be ugly, but SS makes sure they keep it ugly...

What flaw in their design seriously.. it just a square thing with rounded corner like most of every other phones in the world.. lol dude..
