Leaked shots show off glorious Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime
Is this the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime? It sure looks like it might be.
PhoneArena has been sent three photos of the phone, a souped-up premium edition of the Samsung Galaxy S5, by a reader, and without hyperbole we can say it’s probably the best-looking phone Samsung has ever made.
Just an S5 under bad lighting – or a brand new Samsung phone?
A cynic (or possibly just someone with functioning eyes and a sense of taste) might say that that’s not a hard thing to achieve, given the lacklustre plastic-heavy Galaxy phones of recent years, but even so the snapped handset manages to maintain the look of a Samsung phone while stepping things up with a narrow metal (possibly aluminium) bezel.
Are these shots the real deal? They do, after all, look a bit like a black S5 under dodgy lighting – and there’s no way to tell if the screen is the rumoured 2K 2560 x 1440 QHD display everyone and his mother thinks is coming to the S5 Prime.
We won’t know for sure until Samsung shows its hand – something that is rumoured to be happening in June. Aside from a better build and sharper screen, the S5 Prime is also tipped to offer a faster Snapdragon 805 processor, a beefier Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
