Samsung GT-I9405 appears to be a new 5.5-inch Galaxy (not a Note, though)
A new and unannounced Samsung GT-I9405 has been spotted recently. Not in a leaked photo, unfortunately, but in the database of Zauba, a website which tracks Indian exports and imports. According to the website’s listing, the Samsung GT-I9405 is a single SIM “mobile phone” with a 5.5-inch display. It was brought to India a couple of days ago (January 10) for testing and evaluation purposes.

Before you even think about it, no, this is certainly not the upcoming Galaxy S5, since its model number is lower than the S4’s model numbers (GT-I9500 / GT-I9505). Plus, we’re expecting the S5 to sport a 5.25-inch screen, not a 5.5-inch one. The mysterious device can’t be a new Note, either, because Galaxy Notes have different model numbers: N7100, N9000, etc. So it seems to be a smartphone positioned between the old Galaxy S III LTE (GT-I9305) and the S4 LTE (GT-I9505).

We must mention that Zauba had previously listed other unannounced devices that turned out to be real, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo (SM-N7500 / SM-N7505). Thus, more details on the GT-I9405 will likely surface soon.

Perhaps Samsung will officially announce the I9405 at the same time with the Galaxy Note 3 Neo in the near future. We’ll be here to let you know.

Clearly says 5.5" screen.. Also, the 16MP count is absurd.

Anything over 5inch is to big, for a daily driver device....
