QHD Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime Release Date Scheduled For “Around June”?

by Vlad Andrici on April 27, 2014

A lot of digital ink has been spilled during the last several months on topics like the Samsung Galaxy F, Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, Premium Samsung Galaxy S5, and other variations. To the disappointment of many, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has been launched in only one version, with a Full HD display. Even worse, soon after the announcement, Samsung’s J.K. Shin denied that a premium version of the S5 is planned for launch.

Thankfully, when all hope was gone, the guys over at Sammobile uncovered that a new Galaxy device, codenamed KQ (the Galaxy S5 was codenamed K) and featuring a QHD display (1440×2560), is in the works (middle to late development stage). Now, we have an approximate time-frame when this so called Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime is supposed to be unveiled and released. Join us after the break for more.

QHD Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime To Be Released “Around June”?

According to the Korean media, the QHD version of the Galaxy S5 will be made official “around June”. Now, it isn’t clear if Samsung will announce the Galaxy S5 Prime during the aforementioned timeframe or if it will actually release the device in, or around June. It isn’t out of the question for Samsung to announce the device in early June and to release it the same month.

This info actually comes in line with what we dug out earlier this year, when reports out of South Korea were claiming that Samsung’s new premium series is meant to fill the gap between the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series. It also makes sens for Samsung to try and cut ahead of LG’s upcoming QHD device (the LG G3). Recent rumors are claiming that the LG G3 release date has been brought forward to “early July” (following a “late June” unveiling), specially to cut in front of competitors. It remains to be seen, which of the two manufacturers will manage to be the first to release a smartphone with a QHD display.

What do you think? Which of the two would you be inclined to buy? Or is it to early to make such decisions? Let us know in the comments section.

    Samsung is going to piss a lot of people off who bought the S5 thinking it was the flagship….they could have just waited and not let out an inferior device…

      The flip-side to that opinion coin is, I think Samsung were really clever here. Apple released two iPhones that were easily overshadowed. So, the moved the S5 release forward a couple of months, and will use this next model to make the iPhone 6 with its 1080p display look boring even before it is announced.

  • Iphoneadopteer

    Exactly what do you mean by overshadowed? 5 million people bought iphones in 24 hour span. Samsung May be a close rival but they’re not there yet when it comes to true event hyping like Apple. By all indications, this next iphone is going to be a game changer for the competition
