With LG hitting the market with their Quad HD LG G3 smartphone, the pressure is on Samsung to match their competitor with a similar screen resolution as QHD takes center stage as the new standard for flagship devices. Samsung missed the opportunity to get in front of the competition when the Samsung Galaxy S 5 was released with a standard HD screen, but the company has been working on an updated version with the higher resolution. New entries in the RRA database, the South Korean equivalent to the FCC, suggest Samsung is on the verge of making the Samsung Galaxy S 5 Prime a reality.
In addition to the QHD display, the new Galaxy S 5 Prime reportedly will come with an aluminum body and an upgrade to a Snapdragon 805 processor. These enhancements should help Samsung stay in the mix when people are looking for the very best smartphone they can get their hands on.
The entries with the RRA indicate Samsung has three variants of the device, one per carrier. The South Korean carriers include SKT, KT, and LG U+. We still haven’t seen any entries with the FCC though to know what U.S. carriers may get this device. Likewise, no pricing or availability information has leaked out yet regarding the Galaxy S 5 Prime, but it looks like Samsung is making a push to compete with LG during the summer months.
