According to a report by NDTV, two new Samsung models were spotted on Indian import/ export website Zauba. The spotted smartphones featured model numbers SM-G750 and SM-G800. The listing describes the SM-G750 with 5.1-inch screen similar to what the Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with. The website listed another three variants under the SM-G750 model. These include the SM-G750A, SM-G750H and SM-G750F.
More importantly, the UAP or user agent profile of the mentioned model can be found on Samsung Mobile's web page. According to the UAP, the GM-750A model will feature a 2.3GHz ARM11 CPU (unidentified number of cores), Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and a 720p HD screen. As for the other versions of the SM-G750 models, they will come with an HD display offering up to 720 x 1280 pixels for resolution.
Looking at the features of the reported model hints that Samsung will be targeting the lower end section of the market. This is as opposed to the target market of the Samsung Galaxy S5. The lower end specs also suggest that it may be the more affordable Galaxy S5 Neo edition.
According to NDTIV, the SM-G750A may also refer to the AT&T edition of the device. Samsung has not made any official announcements yet.
The SM-G800 model, on other hand, may be the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini. The device listed specs include a 720 display and a 4.5-inch screen. There are also three variants under it: the SM-G800F, SM-G800A, and SM-G800H. Other reported specs are an 8MP primary camera, 2MP front camera, 16GB internal memory, 1.5GB RAM, quad-core Snapdragon processor 2100mAh battery and an IR blaster.
Android Community reported that the Galaxy S5 Prime edition will come with a QHD display offering 2560 x 1440 pixels for resolution and Exynos 5430 octa-core processor. The "Prime" label suggests Samsung wants to take the features further or better than the original Galaxy S5.
