The long rumored luxury edition of the Samsung Galaxy S5 might have just popped again in a series of leaked images. The pictures of the handset allow us to have a good look at the metal clad handset.
The metal bodied Galaxy S5 Prime would mark a significant change for Samsung, which has faithfully stuck to its plastic made designs, despite handset makers like HTC moving to premium and more mature designs.
Now, PhoneArena has received new images of the so-called " Galaxy S5 Prime". Going by the images, you can see a much improved design. The phone has new sleek-looking metal around the edges, instead of the chrome plastic frame. The GS5 Prime also has its loudspeaker placed on the bottom. Otherwise, it looks similar to the original Galaxy S5.
The premium version of the Galaxy S5 Prime is expected to come with a 5.2-inch QHD ( 2k) display, with a resolution of 2450 x 1440 pixels. It will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of internal memory, which can be later expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card slot. The Prime is also said to include Android 4.4.3 Kitkat, 4G LTE connectivity, a built-in heart rate monitor, fingerprint sensor, and 16 MP rear-facing camera.
Not long ago, Bluetooth Special Interest Group (Bluetooth SIG) published a listing showing approval of an yet-to-official Samsung device known as the "SM-G906L".
Recently, a new report straight out from Korea stated that the S5 Prime will cost $880 ( KRW 900,000), which sounds too much.
