Samsung’s much–rumoured Galaxy S5 Prime has starred in a series of new spy shots. The leaked pics, revealed by PhoneArena, show a device that promises to be every bit as sharp as the recently launched HTC One (M8).
The key difference between the Galaxy S5 Prime and the bog standard Galaxy S5 appears to be its frame.
The new version will apparently come packing an aluminium design, aimed at refuting suggestions that Samsung has lost its design mojo following a series of plastic flagship devices that resulted in the man responsible leaving the company.
On top of that, the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor on board will be the snappier 805 version, although only true power-users and benchmark fanatics are likely to notice any real-world difference.
The display is said to be pushed up to 1440 x 2560 and will come in at 5.2–inches, making this every inch a phablet. The latest version of Android KitKat and 2GB of RAM complete the package.
There’s no word yet on release date or price. However, with the S5 already a costly proposition, many consumers may be wondering whether to bother shelling out even more for a device that should have been its flagship phone in the first place.
