Galaxy S5, the latest Samsung flagship, didn't even hit the shelves but the Korean tech giant is already rumored to release another variant of Galaxy S5, which could be a premium variant. Recent rumors have been ablaze with reports saying a premium Galaxy S5 is coming soon, which is dubbed as Galaxy S5. But the premium Galaxy S5 had not been verified yet.
Samsung might release another variant of Galaxy S5, which could be a cheaper version of the original Galaxy S5. It seemed the Korean tech giant was keen on bringing the fans of Galaxy S5 with less powerful hardware.
Zauba, a Web site that tracks imports and exports in India, reported a Samsung-made smartphone with model number SM-G800F has been imported to India from South Korea. According to the site, the purported device was brought into India for testing. Samsung SM-G800F costs $ 520 while Samsung Galaxy S5, which previously appeared on the same Web site as model SM-G900F was priced at $540.
The listed device was yet to be verified but the tech media started to speculate that the purported device could be the upcoming Galaxy S5 Neo. Also, as cited in the Web site, the price difference between the Galaxy S5 and the alleged Galaxy S5 Neo was somewhat similar to Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 3 Neo.
