More details surrounding the so-called Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime have emerged online, pointing to a possible imminent release.
Numerous rumours have appeared in recent months concerning a souped-up Samsung Galaxy S5 model with, among other things, a QHD 2K display. It’s also been suggested that the device could see a switch to a metallic body.
Now we’ve received one of the most convincing tips yet courtesy of - who else? - @evleaks. The ever-reliable Twitter tipster recently tweeted the following:
"Samsung SM-G906, the "Galaxy S5 Prime" for Korea, to come in five colors: black, white, gold, blue, and sweet pink."
We’ve heard that SM-G906 model number before, of course. Its similarity to the SM-G900, which is the Galaxy S5’s model number, is one reason to suspect that reports of a modified version are true.
Of more interest is the information that the Galaxy S5 Prime will launch in five colours, and that the tweet mentions it’s headed "for Korea."
This might suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime won’t received a broad roll-out like the Samsung Galaxy S5. If so, we can only hope that it will make its way west to the UK, Europe, and US reasonably swiftly.
It’s also worth noting that the source usually supplies such detailed tips on devices that are fairly imminent, so we could be seeing the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime pretty soon. Hopefully it will arrive with news of a swift UK release.
