Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime spotted on Indian import-export site?
The high-end variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5, rumored to be called the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, was possibly spotted on the Zauba web site. We've mentioned this Indian site before, because it keeps track of shipments into the country from companies like Samsung. The Korean tech titan is known for shipping devices into India for testing.

On the Zauba site, the SM-G906K was listed as having been shipped into the country for R&D purposes. Samsung sent four units into India, each one valued at 30,527 Rupees ($504 USD). The SM-906S model number was recently spotted at the GFX benchmark site, revealing many of the high-end specs that are expected to be on the phone.

There is speculation that the SM-G906 is the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. Unlike the regular variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5, this model will feature a metal casing, a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution screen, a Snapdragon 805 processor, and 3GB of RAM. The latest rumor has Samsung unveiling the phone as soon as next month. The SM-906K is a model for Korea Telecom, while the SM-906S should be headed to SK Telecom.

Why does it say 15mp lol. Im assuming they just cant multiply. But would Samsung really bump the screen size up .1?

May be coz for Grand 2 some sites says 5.2, some says 5.3 and some 5.25. But look at the price, it's fair for the specs.

Early leaks said S5 would come with 5.2" QHD screen. Then a few months ago the FHD rumours started.
The story is Samsung's goes through 7 to 10 versions before the production version is ready. S5 started out with a 5.2" QHD screen but by vers 3 Samsung couldn't work out all the bugs to have sufficient production volumes in time, so changed to 5.1" FHD and kept the chassis the same ('ready made' as it were for a future screen increase).

Makes sense as there are no other justifications for such thick side bezels - Sharp has water & dust proof phones with incredibly thin bezels so IP rating is no excuse. However put a 5.2" screen into the S5 and those side bezels
Also doesn't make sense why Samsung would only increase screen size will be almost halved.

Also didn't make sense why they'd only increased screen from 5.0 to 5.1...whereas if they initially (and ultimately) intended to have it at 5.2" sounds more plausible. Still don't get why they went 5.1" FHD instead of 5.2" - my guess: so as to have more of a differentiator when the 5.2" QHD came out.

Regardless am hoping this is true and ultimately pegged for international release as this is the phone I am waiting for!

There is only 1 official version of the S5.
All others are just rumors.
If rumors counted, does that mean there are 4 HTC M8 (reg,mini,max,plastic)?

Im a samsung fan, who may never buy another htc product after terrible experience with one x. But id have to agree. They use great build materials and design with some fatastic features. If they could get a better camera, slim down the bezels and get some better marketing they would have a truly unbeatable device.
