Samsung's latest flagship handset, the Galaxy S5, may not have been a game changer that many had hoped for but that's hardly affected company's morale. According to Samsung mobile chief J.K. Shin, the company has sold more than 11 million units since its early April debut.
It is good news for Samsung but that doesn't mean the company won't come up with a new premium handset to tackle LG's first ever 2K ready G3 flagship phone, ready to official on May 27.Samsung's much rumored Galaxy S5 Prime is reportedly making its debut next month in South Korea.
Subsequently, Twitter leaker @evleaks has claimed that Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy S5 Prime variant (SM-G906) will be available in five color versions: white, black, blue, gold and pink. It is widely believed that the Galaxy S5 Prime could hit South Korean market first, followed by other major territories.
Though there's still no proof that Samsung is even working on a luxurious variant of the existing Galaxy S5, but that doesn't stop some from believing every crazy rumor leaked by @evleaks.
Market rumors have indicated that Samsung may not able to produce enough units of the Galaxy S5 Prime due to lack of components such as QHD ( 2560 x 1440) displays.
Apparently, sources close to Korean publication Naver believe that the S5 Prime will cost 900,000 Korean won (about $880 approximately). Moreover, the device is expected to reach South Korean market by mid-June.
