Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime to be released some time in June?
Last week, we showed you an entry on the Zauba import-export site that allegedly showed the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime being sent to India for R&D. This is supposed to be the version of Samsung's new flagship phone, with a metal casing, a 1440 x 2560 resolution screen, and more. While Samsung has denied the existence of this phone, a Samsung branded handset with the model number of SM-906S was seen in the AnTuTu site, with a QHD display.

A report published Sunday out of Korea, says that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime will make its first appearance in June. Unfortunately, we don't know if this means that the phone will be unveiled that month, or actually released. Samsung is looking to beat the LG G3 to market as its country mate's unannounced flagship sequel is expected to offer a 1440 x 2560 QHD screen, like the Galaxy S5 Prime.

With the LG G3 now expected to launch early in July, Samsung has this brief opening to launch a phone that Sammy's head of mobile, J.K. Shin, has denied the existence of. If Samsung does launch a premium version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, are buyers of the original version going to feel misled?

Thanks for the tip!

I used to look forward to this device. Now I just look forward to getting my 64GB OnePlus One with Cyanogen for $350.

When samsung does it it's ok, do you not know that ? It's called diversity. On the other hand, God forbid Sony or HTC does it, then it's bast@rds....!!! bankruptcy....never buy again !!! Bla bla !!! Don't even get me started with premium materials such as aluminum, something that was very bad, unattractive, dents easy, oh plastic is so much better. If samsung is going to do it it's going to be like ooooo the best, amazing.. I tell u, call em pathetic, they get all upset. They are like this new breed, making apples fans and nokia fans look like a joke in comparison, and that's something hard to achieve. Oh dear.

Dude, did you forget to mention about how hot that stupid Premium material gets ?

Nah my HTC One never got as hot and uncomfortable as my Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy S3. The aluminum dissipates heat better than plastic.

35. Teja171 unregistered

Sure, but thats the reason why the device feels so hot after couple of minutes.

all samsung is doing is giving ppl who say plastic is bad something to choose from.... for me plastic is the way to go....

thats not the problem for people like me that waited and seen the s5 and said crap now i have to get it or m8 because i want out of my carrier so they had to get this phone to change carrier, its like getting a honda accord for 20k and then a week later bentley start dropping price to 20k, or if you dont like that just say the accord gos on sale for 10k

That's what they said that the S5 will have a Exynos 6 64bit octocore,,, but what happened? They also said it would be in metal or aluminuim.

Buyers of the original shouldn't feel bad. In the Android space, there is always something better just months away. You have to take the plunge eventually or you'll always be waiting and end up with nothing.

14. wolfsaviorzx unregistered

nah, If you buy a 32 Bit chip now you are an idiot. They should release 64 bit chips now instead of making people wait.

Everything doesn't happen in the wink of a eye right ?

Bring it with SD805 or Exynos Infinity, and combine it with good looking and quality design. That's enough to bring Samsung haters to their knees.

I think Samsung is screwing itself with all these variations. Now, even buyers of the Galaxy S5, supposedly Samsung's flagship, will feel like they're missing out. Samsung needs to make one solid, flagship phone, and keep it at that...

People keep saying that, yet Samsung keeps selling more phones year over year. Perhaps it's time to put this theory to rest.

The more the years are passing the famous Samsung is getting, also they are selling more handsets than the previous iteratition.

Did buyers of the S5 somehow not get what they paid for because a new device is coming out?

45. engineer-1701d unregistered

yes they got the biggest letdown ever stupid hr meter that all phones have a small battery and a 2 gig ram and 32 bit core should have been 3 gig ram 64 core and 31 or 3200 mah battery,with better looking build

This time, they would throw all the comments back to HTC, for criticizing them.

I don't know what's wrong with Samsung fans. They always talk about the premium version of their flagship. This goes all the way back to S3. S3 was insulted for the plastic finish, then rumors came about a premium S3 which never existed. Then the Note 2 was rumoured to be premium. Same story for S4, Note 3 and S5. Stop dreaming, you just won't get it. Enjoy what you get.

Not sure what "Samsung fans" you're referring to. All the Samsung fans I know are Samsung fans for one reason. They're more than satisfied with the Samsung phone they have.
