Could this unknown Samsung handset be the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo?
Zauba is a website that tracks imports and exports into and out of India. Occasionally, an unknown device happens to show up on the site. For example, a Samsung phone with the model number SM-G800F has been imported into India by way of South Korea. The site notes that the device has been brought into the country for R&D testing, and is valued at 31,790 INR ($520 USD) each. A total of 7 units were imported on March 5th through the 7th.

So what is the SM-G800F? It is a lower model number than the Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F), which also showed up on Zauba recently, valued at 33,061 INR ($541 USD). According to one speculative report, the SM-G800F could be the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo.

According to one speculative theory, a Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is being ruled out because the difference in value on Zauba between the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini came to more than the 1271 INR difference between the SM-G900F and SM-G800F. The difference in value on the logistics site between the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo seems to be closer to what we are seeing between the Samsung Galaxy S5 value and that of the unknown SM-G800F.

Will the mystery device turn out to be a Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo? That might take some time to answer. After all, the Samsung Galaxy S5 isn't due to be released until April 11th.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 (at top) is valued just 1271 INR above the value of the mysterious SM-G800F
