Image of premium Samsung KQ snapped by Mr. Blurrycam? (No, it's a photoshopped Galaxy Note)

Image of premium Samsung KQ snapped by Mr. Blurrycam? (No, it's a photoshopped Galaxy Note)
UPDATE: The photo in question is not the Samsung KQ, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime or any other premium version of Samsung's flagship phone. According to a report published on Tuesday, this is a photoshopped Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Zooming into the picture reveals that the fingers wrapped around the metal casing, "cut into" the bezel. This is exactly why we cautioned you that the close-up picture of the device showed an extension of the screen that was not part of the Samsung Galaxy S5.

While Samsung Mobile chief J.K. Shin has denied the existence of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, that might have been a simple matter of semantics. While there might not be a model with that exact name, the Samsung KQ is apparently the premium model of the Samsung Galaxy S5 that everyone has been waiting for. It is believed that the device will feature metal casing, and a 5.2 inch screen with the 1440 x 2560 resolution QHD resolution that everyone has been looking for.

Samsung is looking to launch this model in June. Reputations are at stake and LG is expected to offer a 2K resolution display on the LG G3, whose unveiling has been moved up to early July from late July. Which company will be the first to offer a 2K resolution screen in the U.S.? The bragging rights are worth a lot of money.

All of this drama takes us to a low quality picture that allegedly shows off the dialer on the Samsung KQ, and its metal casing. If you have any salt left over after viewing that Apple iPhone 6 video on Sunday, you might want to take it now. A close-up of the picture shows the screen extending to the edge, something that is not the case on the Samsung Galaxy S5, which might call the pictures into question.

The rumored specs are so delightful, and go down so easily (like a fine piece of filet mignon) that we don't mind repeating them.We're talking about a 5.2 inch screen with resolution of 1440 x 2560. That produces a pixel density of 564ppi. Depending on where you live, you could find yourself with an octa-core Exynos 5430, or a quad-core Snapdragon 805 under the hood. The Adreno 420 GPU will take care of graphics, and 3GB of RAM is inside. The camera on back is 16MP, while a 2MP snapper adorns the front. Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed out of the box.

We could see this premium high end model unveiled as soon as tomorrow.

Thanks for the tip!
