Leaked photos show off the aluminum-clad Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime
Other expected upgrades to the device, compared to the Samsung Galaxy S5, include the use of a quad-core Snapdragon 805 CPU as opposed to the Snapdragon 801 CPU employed on the regular version of the handset. The Adreno 330 GPU on the regular version of the phone, is replaced with the Adreno 420 GPU. And instead of the 2GB of RAM found on the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 Prime will feature 3GB of RAM. There is talk that Android 4.4.3 will be pre-installed on the unit.
Besides the QHD screen and the other changes, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime is made with an aluminum body. The speaker has been moved to the bottom of the phone from the back. Many out there will tell you that this is the phone that Samsung should have released originally. And while the average Joe on the street might not care, there is bound to be negative feedback from some Samsung Galaxy S5 buyers, who would have rather used up their upgrade to buy a premium version of the phone. How Samsung addresses this issue, if indeed it does, should be quite interesting.
As for the pictures below, we would suggest that you take them with the proverbial grain of salt. That is not to say that you're not looking at the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, but we should be respectful of the fact that the phone has not yet been announced by the company. Our source tells us that the phone is currently undergoing testing.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!
