While the Samsung Galaxy S5 is a great smartphone overall, we can’t really hide the fact that the majority of Samsung enthusiasts have once again been rather disappointed by the company’s approach in terms of design. The Korean tech giant is one of the most influential and financially stable mobile manufacturers around, yet Samsung has continued to deal in “cheap-feeling plastic”. In contrast, HTC, Sony, and even LG, struggle to push the limits of design and build quality to new reaches.
The good news however, is that Samsung seems to have been forced by the competition in creating a premium quality flagship phone, which we all know as the rumored “Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime”. The device in question is expected to feature a metal case, and according to the previous rumors, the Prime should be getting ready for its imminent release. Today we’ve come across new bits of information, “confirming” once again that the handset might indeed be closing in to its release date.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime Gets Certified By Bluetooth?
Earlier today, a new Samsung smartphone carrying the model number “SM-G906L” has been added in Bluetooth SIG’s database. As some of you might be aware of, the “SM-G906X” model number has been previously associated with the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, with “X” being a different letter depending on the region (SM-G906S for South Korea etc.)
The Bluetooth SIG listing isn’t disclosing any concrete hardware specifications, but if the previous rumors are correct, then the handset should pack a 5.1 / 5.2 inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 805 CPU, 3 GB of RAM, a 13 MP + 2 MP camera setup, and the next version of Android KitKat (4.4.3) out of the box.
Word on the street is that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime will be released “around June”, and some speculations have also indicated that the device might be manufactured in limited quantities, due to high production costs. Whatever the case, the Prime appears to be getting closer to the finish line, so we’re bound to hear more about it soon. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted.
