Samsung has a pretty interesting strategy in which they tend to release a flagship phone which is then followed up by variants of it that could appeal to different users. We’ve seen it with the Samsung Galaxy S4 where variants such as the Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S4 Zoom, and Galaxy S4 mini.
It seems like Samsung is interested in continuing that trend, thanks to a sighting on Zauba which has revealed a certain Samsung SM-G800F. It is unclear what the model is but some have taken it to mean that it could be the Galaxy S5 Neo, which is basically the Galaxy S5 but with less powerful specs.
In fact just last week there were similar reports that Samsung could be planning a Galaxy S5 mini, so perhaps there could be more than one Galaxy S5 variant in the works. However a Galaxy S5 mini and Galaxy S5 Neo might seem a little contradictory, since both will most likely pack lower-end specs.
However it is possible that the Galaxy S5 Neo could maintain the same dimensions, but perhaps with a less sharp display and slower clock speeds, while the Galaxy S5 mini could just be a smaller version of the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Either way we’ll try and keep a look out for more information regarding the Samsung SM-G800F, so do check back with us at a later date to see if there is any additional information to be had. In the meantime how do you guys feel about Samsung releasing multiple variants of a single handset? Does it feel like they could be diluting the brand?
