Import details have revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, which comes with model number SM-G906, has arrived in India at the Dehli Airport. The phone has arrived from the manufacturer’s hometown South Korea and has been marked for testing and evaluation purposes. The import document states that the phone carries a price of $360 (INR 21,245) but we have our doubts about this one because a previous import document had signaled towards a price of $137 for the Motorola Moto E and although it wasn’t so far off from the actual $129, we are suspecting this wont be the case with Galaxy Prime.
Another revelation has also caught our attention and it points at a 5.1" display instead of a 5.2" as previously suggested. Other specs of the phone include QHD-resolution display, 2.5Hz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with a quad-core CPU, an Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB of RAM and to top it all up we are hearing that the phone would be able to reach 225Mbps download speeds.
The phone is going to debut next month. We are not yet sure about the exact date but we do know that it is not going to make an appearance on the tablet-dedicated event which is scheduled to take place on 12th June. The price tag at launch is supposed to be around $880.
