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!

All they're gonna do is punch out some aluminium rear covers, anodise them, then attach them to a standard S5, then charge an extra $100

Yeah, because the S5 has a QHD YOUM display?

How many of you are skipping the S5 and waiting for this like me?

Kinda hoping it's not part of the S series, so there might be a chance for a new design.

Yeah. Remember when those guys said IP certification was so so so useless? Now, they use it as a counter attack to other fanboys and say "This is a real feature! No gimmicks!". If Samsung will release a premium metal or glass device, of course they will be happy to use it also as counter attacks. Fanboys are all the same. All fanboys are the worst.

So basically Samsung is doing some kind of 6-month release cycle like Sony does? I thought that was Note's purpose!

20. Teja171 unregistered

Its now ( probably ) fallen down to 3-4 month cycle ? or what ? just saying..

I would gladly pay additional premium for a substantial bump in storage size, like 64 Gb +.... Screen Resolution wars should stop @ 1080p (5 - 5.5 inches) Period!

More memory would be great. I'd be willing to pay a bit extra for a higher quality display -- one that is not missing a lot of subpixels -- so fonts on light/gray backgrounds are clearer and easier to read. And I'd also pay more for a dedicated headphone audio output circuit so the phone can deliver quality output with more brands of headphones.

In my case I won't change it even if S5 Prime hits the market. Totally satisfied with my S5. But if the rumors are true the Note 4 could change things up.

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.

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

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...

10. g2a5b0e unregistered

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.

43. willard12 unregistered

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
