One of the most elusive devices of the last few weeks has been the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, a rumoured device that allegedly updates the original Galaxy S5 with a 5.2-inch 2K resolution display and possibly a new processor. Despite a leaked video, nothing about the leaks surrounding the device seems to be particularly conclusive, and the latest news isn’t likely to clear anything up specification-wise. According to Zauba’s database, a SM-906S, apparently the S5 Prime in South Korea, has been shipped to India for testing.
It’s also notable in this listing that the screen size is quoted as 5.1-inches, again going against the rumours of a 5.2-inch screen. The only other detail we can glean from this listing is the price attached to this test unit, which is apparently Rs. 21,245, or about $362 USD. Is this the real market price? Probably not, but at least we know that there is a new Galaxy S5 device coming to us soon. And with the LG G3 release coming up in just a few days, it’s likely we’ll be hearing more about Samsung‘s answer in the near future.
