Samsung Galaxy S5

While there is no official confirmation from Samsung of a higher-end version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, a recent Bluetooth SIG listing of a device bearing model number SM-G906L indicates that an eventual release might be on the cards. The SM-G906L model number is said to correspond to that of the South Korean version of the Galaxy S5 Prime, a device rumored to feature at the very least a high-density QHD display.

The Bluetooth certification it itself doesn't tell us anything other than the fact that the device features Bluetooth 4.0 radios. The hardware version number REV0.1 indicates that the device is likely a test unit or a prototype.

The Galaxy S5 Prime is allegedly slated for an official launch sometime in the month of June, but considering that Samsung is holding a tablet event on June 12, it is possible that the actual launch might not be until the end of June or sometime in July.

All we have are rumors to go by, but if there is any validity to them, the Galaxy S5 Prime will be anabsolute beast of a handset, featuring a 5.2-inch quad-HD screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 (that comes out to a 564 PPI pixel density), Snapdragon 805/Exynos 5430 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 16 MP ISOCELL camera, LTE Category 4 modem and Android 4.4.3 KitKat. It should be interesting to see whether such a device actually sees the light of day.

I predict this handset won't be available in the States. Korea only.

Dizfunctions says:

I would disagree. They were overshadowed by the LG G2 last year in reviews and I have a deep in that Samsung won't let that happen again this year. It may also correlate with the release of the iPhone 6.

Isn't it more likely that they would release an S5 neo? A cheaper version with lower specs

still buying the LG G3, tired of CrapWiz, sorry Sammy.

antheauxny says:

Whatever this "Prime" is, should have been the S5 to begin with. What is the point in releasing a new somewhat-flagship device after only 3 or 4 months after the prior one?

To make money.

Because the latest and greatest parts were not ready in time. Hard to make something when the parts are not rest by the deadline.
