What you see above is claimed to be the first real photo of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. This high-powered variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is said to contain a 5.2-inch 2560x1440 QHD display (much like the LG G3) and a metal body. While previous reports of the metal body had assumed that the whole phone would be metal, what we're seeing here appears more along the lines of an aluminum frame with a plastic back that is a little thicker, though still dimpled, than the standard Galaxy S5.
That thickness likely comes courtesy of a larger battery, considering the amped up processor, RAM, and GPU that would be needed to manage that high density display while still keeping things humming along smoothly. Benchmarking leaks have indicated that the processor will be upgraded to a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805, RAM bumped up to 3GB, and an Adreno 420 GPU thrown in for good measure. That said, the phone is reportedly still undergoing testing, so those specs might change.
We don't have much more in the way of info about the Galaxy S5 Prime, though we're sure you have your own thoughts on the matter — especially if you've already shelled out a few hundred bucks for a standard Galaxy S5. Let us know what you think in the comments. And, of course, take all of this with the proverbial granule of sodium chloride.
Update - A new video has now also appeared claiming to be of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime or some variation of the Active, you can check it out below.
Update 2 from Phil Dunno about Phone Arena's stuff, but that video was pretty obviously bullshit, and dude needs to go find a new hobby. I've pulled it off this post. Apologies. You deserve better from us.
