Earlier this month, we reported that Samsung is planning on launching the Galaxy S5 Prime, the buffed up version of Samsung Galaxy S5, and if so happens, the company will be keeping the availability limited for some reasons. Now another report tells us that a Galaxy S5 Prime has made its way to India for testing, this report can be considered legit since it’s in shape of an import document which clearly mentions that this phone is for testing purpose only and won’t be on retail.
Apart from this, the model number of the phone is also mentioned in the document, to those who aren’t aware, the Galaxy S5 Prime will carry the model number SM-G906, the original variant had SM-G900. Another interesting thing that was revealed in the import document was the price of the smart phone. According to the document, the Galaxy S5 Prime will be price at INR 21,245 which is equal to $360, this is kind of skeptical since the original Galaxy S5 launched for $600, but since it’s in the early stages. We can’t say much about it.
There’s another interesting revelation in the import document, previous rumours suggested that the Galaxy S5 Prime will be coming with a 5.2 inches of display, but according to the document, it will have the same screen size as the original Galaxy S5. For those who are unaware of other specifications, the Galaxy S5 Prime is alleged to have a quad core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5 gigahertz, 3 gigs of RAM, 32 gigs of internal storage that will be expandable via micro SD card, Adreno 420 graphics card, there are also some rumours circulating that the phone will be able to reach the download speed of insane 255 Mbps, all thanks to the Qualcomm MDM9635 multimode modem.
As far as the announce date is concerned, reports are suggesting towards somewhere during June, later this year, Samsung is also holding another event in June to show off the upcoming tablets, but it’s highly unlikely that the company will let the Galaxy S5 Prime be the shoe stopper. Whatever happens, we’ll update you for sure.
