Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime (SM-G906S) may have just hit the FCC

Unfortunately, the FCC didn’t reveal too many details about this alleged S5 Prime. However, it does show that the smartphone features LTE band 5 and band 17 - a combination of bands that no US carrier is supporting.
Several weeks ago, we exclusively posted photos that reportedly show the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime - although, of course, we can’t confirm their authenticity just yet. In any case, the S5 Prime should be Samsung’s first smartphone to offer a Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) display. Other expected features include a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and Android 4.4.3 KitKat.
Prior to being approved by the FCC, the SM-G906 also visited the Bluetooth SIG, and South Korea’s equivalent of the FCC.
It’s not clear if the final name of the new high-end smartphone will be Galaxy S5 Prime. We're hearing that Samsung may choose to call it Galaxy Alpha, or Galaxy F. We hope to find out more about this in the near future, so stay tuned.

Oh yeah that's what I'm talking about! If it does come with an SD805 (which is slightly unlikely) then it can literally spoil LG's party

If this phone (with these alleged specs) is confirmed by the time the G3 comes out, I may just have to wait a little longer for this one. It seems pretty sick.

I know I could look it up, but perhaps someone can give me a short, simple explanation. Why does the FCC have to approve Samsung phone models are are destined for the Korean market?
