New Galaxy S5 Variant With 2K Display may be coming soon

Back when the Galaxy S5 was announced for the first time at the Mobile World Congress, it was understood that Samsung would be rolling out two variants for this new flagship just like Apple intends to do with its upcoming iPhone 6. When the official announcement for the phone was made, it was pretty clearly indicating towards the higher end device which Samsung was promising and now those would feel wuite lucky who had postponed their purchase of the S5 because the 'better' is here in the firm of 'Galaxy F'.

This variant of the Galaxy S5 will have a 2k display and a much faster processor and on the outside it will have a luxurious higher-end, aluminum finish. The phone has a model number SM-G906 and has now started to be known as the Galaxy S5 Prime. Its benchmarks dont really detail on the form factor or the internal housing but some idea has been given about the technical side related to the specs. We must also keep in mind that these GFXBench benchmarks in question could easily have been faked and hence we must be careful regarding what we are extracting out of them. An Indian import site Zauba has noted that many units of the phone have been shipped in from Samsung’s native South Korea for the purpose of research and development and this indicates that the phone could be coming out soon enough.

Talking about the specs, the phone will have a 5.2 inch display which will have a 2560 x 1440 resolution and it will be powered by the 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor. On the graphics side, the phone sports the Adreno 420 GPU along with 3 gigs of RAM and an on boaard storage of 32 GB. The camera setup is also pretty impressive with a main camera of 16 MP; same rear-facing shooter of the standard Galaxy S5.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
