The report comes just days after the alleged Galaxy S5 Prime test models - SM-GS906K and SM-GS906S landed in India for R&D purposes. Samsung is reportedly working on the new phone under the code name 'Project KQ'. [Note: Before Galaxy S5 made its global debut, it was internally known as Project K].
Samsung's Galaxy S5 Prime is said to flaunt a 5.2-inch screen with QHD (aka 2K) 2560x1440p display resolutions and is expected to ship with Android v4.4.2 OS out-of-the-box.
Under the hood, it houses 3GB RAM and 32GB (25GB available) inbuilt storage, 16.0-megapixel main camera and a 2.0-megapixel front camera, both capable of taking full HD video.
Like all flagship devices, Samsung is expected to ship two Galaxy S5 Prime variants for different markets - one with 2.5GHz Snapdragon 805 series chipset for developed markets where 4G network is widely available and another model with Exynos series (probably 5430) Octa-core processor in emerging markets like India and others.
Besides Galaxy S5 Prime, Samsung is also slated to launch a Galaxy S5 Mini with water-resistant body.
Earlier today, company officially announced the camera-centric Samsung Galaxy K Zoom with 20.0-megapixel camera boasting ½.3 BSI CMOS sensor, 10 x optical zoom, OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) and AF assisted LED.
