The official launch of Samsung’s flagship smartphone, Galaxy S5, is just few days away, but reports have surfaced online about the specifications of Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime bearing the model number SM-G906S.
The model number SM-G906S for Galaxy S5 Prime completely makes sense as the model number for the regular Galaxy S5 is SM-G900. This comes despite a recent announcement by Samsung that the company is not scheduled to launch any such device from its production lines any time soon.
The mysterious device has been termed as a certified phablet having a screen size of 5.2 inches with an amazing pixel resolution of 2560 x 1440 or almost double the number of pixels found on the original Galaxy S5 model. The device is also expected to have a 1080p display as well as a 2K front panel that uses Quad HD rendering.
The upcoming phablet is expected to be powered by a quad-core 64-bit Snapdragon 805 having a top speed of 2.5GHz.Experts believe that the 805 chipset is a much better powerhouse than the Qualcomm 801, which is equipped into the regular GS5.
The G906S is to be equipped with a minimum 3GB of RAM or more, and the graphic engine is expected to be the default Snapdragon 805 GPU partner.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy S5 Prime will boast a 15.8MP main camera along with a 2MP front-facing shooter. The device is to have 32GB of the basic internal storage with a memory expansion slot that is similar to the specification of the regular GS5.
The SM-G906S would have Android KitKat 4.4.2, and will be having a premium metallic casing as mentioned in the earlier leaks.
