Samsung has kept its hold on the market with an entire barrage of smartphones arriving under a host of price ranges. And the hold has been further intensified with the release of a host of devices that fall under the low-to-mid range category, looking to compete against the biggest names in the market.
However, keeping the low or mid-range segment at bay for the moment, Samsung has been primarily in news for releasing the brand new Galaxy S5 smartphone. And while we are not going into the host of postive and negative things that have been said about the device, the company is already expected to arrive with a brand new Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime.
Now, there are reports claiming that the new Galaxy S5 Prime is likely to go on sale as early as mid-June, that too in Samsung's home country South Korea, according to a Naver report.
As the report suggests, the phone could release in almost on all major South Korean carriers. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that the phone will similarly arrive in other markets at the same time.
As SamMobile puts it, "earlier reports have suggested the S5 Prime could be produced in limited quantities, so it could be a while before it makes its way outside South Korea." And that too even though the phone has already been listed on a Hong Kong website recently.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime: Potential Specifications
At the moment, we haven't got any idea as to what kind of specs the device will come running. However, going by the rumors for the same, The Galaxy S5 Prime could arrive sporting a 5.2-inch QHD (2560×1440) display, powered by an Exynos 5430/Snapdragon 805 processor.
There is 3GB of RAM available, alongside a 16-megapixel rear camera with Samsung's ISOCELL technology, apart from LTE-A connectivity, and Android 4.4.3 KitKat.
The device could also feature a metallic/more premium construction compared to the standard Galaxy S5. Although everything here has to be taken with a pinch of salt.
