Samsung is said to be working on a high-end premium version of its latest Galaxy S5 smart phone. The rumored upcoming high resolution version of Galaxy S5 is widely called Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. Samsung has publicly denied working on a Galaxy S5 Prime. But the evidence is regularly popping up online that Samsung is actually working on a new version of Galaxy S5 with 2K resolution.
The South Korean giant is reportedly working on an updated Samsung Galaxy S5 version that will have higher resolution of 2560 x 1440. The new SM-G906K or "Prime" model was recently spotted in a GFXBench benchmark test. BRG reports that Samsung has sent four SM-G906K units from South Korea for “R&D purposes” in a similar shipment manifest in which many previous Galaxy-branded versions had also been shipped before launch.
Although, the commercial name and launch date of high end version of Samsung Galaxy S5 is not yet confirmed. However, it is widely speculated that Samsung is working on a premium high end model of Galaxy S5 that will have a QHD Super AMOLED display, 2k resolution and a metal body. These features are missing in current Galaxy S5 model.
Other rumored specs of the alleged Galaxy S5 Prime include: a 5.2-inch QHD display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, 16MP camera at rear, 2MP camera at front and Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS.
Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy S5 is selling very well in many regions. And a current report reveals that Galaxy S5 actually outsold iPhone 5S over launch weekend.
