Time and time again it has been rumored that Samsung is working on a premium variant of its flagship smartphone. Back in February it unveiled the Galaxy S5 which was released in April. The company has already confirmed that the latest flagship is off to a better start than its predecessor, selling 11 million units in under one month. That being said it looks like Samsung hasn’t dropped the premium smartphone plans and might soon follow up with the Galaxy S5 Prime.
With the Galaxy S5 this year Samsung offered more color options than it conventionally does. From the get go this device has been available in black, white, blue, gold and pink in some markets. Even though the Prime is expected to have a metal body as opposed to its sibling’s plastic, it may not lose the colors.
Word from Twitter leaker @evleaks is that Galaxy S5 Prime will be available in the same black, white, blue, gold and pink colors, with the latter being limited to some markets. Samsung usually reserves pink for markets like Korea and Japan where there is significant consumer interest for this particular color.
Rumors suggest that the Galaxy S5 Prime will have a 5.2-inch 2,560×1,440 pixel resolution 2K display, a Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB RAM, LTE-A and Android 4.4.3. The smartphone may be well positioned to give LG’s upcoming flagship a run for its money as soon as it hits the market.
