Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime appears in the Netherlands with 1080 x 1920 screen?

KPN will debut LTE-A on July 1st, and supported hardware should be available shortly thereafter. That includes the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. While original rumors called for a 5.3 inch 1440 x 2560 resolution screen, the device on display in the Netherlands has the same 5.1 inch screen seen on the Galaxy S5, with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That seems strange. If the idea behind the Galaxy S5 Prime is to challenge the QHD screen on the LG G3, that is not going to happen with a 1080p resolution glass.
The CPU on the device is the quad-core Snapdragon 805, with the Adreno 420 GPU crushing graphics. With a model number of SM-G901F, the phone resembles the Samsung Galaxy S5. In fact, the reports from the Netherlands call the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime indistinguishable from the regular version of the phone, with the same back cover seen on the original model. That doesn't exactly jive with the leaked pictures we've seen of the Samsung Galaxy F, supposedly another name given to the premium version of the Galaxy S5. Those photos show a model with a slightly larger screen and a brushed metal rear cover.
So what is going on here? It could be that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime is a different model than the Samsung Galaxy F. Remember, the device that we showed you with the brushed metal back and the QHD screen is the Galaxy F, not the Galaxy S5 Prime. Hopefully, Samsung will reveal everything shortly.
Thanks for the tip Stijn!

Everything is just rumors. That's why all the information is a mess and unclear.

The processor is more efficient and powerful, QHD likely won't be all it was cracked up to be this year if the G3s screen is any indication of what's possible. The 805 with 1080p can probably outperform all the QHD phones that will be coming out this year due to the upscaling necessary. There is barely any content for this QHD resolution, it's just a penis measuring contest now. I'd prefer a lagless experience since I'm still using a galaxy nexus from 2011, anything would be an upgrade to me. I'm sick and tired of all this rampant speculation, I've been waiting for a long time for a new phone. Is the wait really worth it? Probably not. Thinking about getting the S5 tomorrow so I can stop reading about these stupid corporations and all their vague "leaks". I seriously loathe all of them right now, wasting my goddamn time with information overload. Rot in hell sammy, lg and htc.

Preach brother. I don't get wats so good about G3 beside a good body to screen ratio. I actually prefers Samsung and Apple's off screen buttons. These 2 companys make up about 50%+ of the cell phone market so ppl must be liking those physical button.

the G3 is nth short of a disappointment, just like the S5. it might have been a big hit when it was first announced but when the reviews started coming in, it became VERY apparent that the main selling point of the G3 wasn't even well thought through. the S5 however, was a victim of its own hype.

I guess even Samsung knows QHD is a gimmick and a waste of battery/processing power.

perhaps Samsung realised that releasing the Note 4 and a S5 variant with that screen resolution would cause an overlap of sorts, essentially making 2 of their products compete among themselves my guess is that the Galaxy F (or S5 Prime or whatever it gets called) is just an updated S5 for H2 with the quirks of the S5 ironed out, while the Note 4 will feature the QHD screen and be Samsung's proper answer the G3

What you are failing to realise is that QHD might not be relevant now but it will be in the future, some people don't change their phones every 6 months or even a year. I am still on the Galaxy S3.
