With Samsung's "Tab into Color Galaxy Premiere" scheduled on June 12, many have high hopes that the Galaxy S5 Prime will debut during the event. Here are five features to anticipate on the smart gadget that has been confirmed from various online sources.
Code Change from S to F
According to a Twitter post from @evleaks, the brushed white metal photo was accompanied with a caption that reads "Samsung Galaxy F" with "F" standing for "Fashion. Samsung has been well-known for its literal taste so the change in code for the premium variant from Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime to Samsung Galaxy F just makes sense.
Bigger and Better Display
According to GSM Arena, Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime with a model number SM-G906 will come with 5.2-inch screen size and 2560 x 1440 display resolution and 2K AMOLED screen. This is several notches bigger and better than Samsung Galaxy S4 which has a 5-inch screen and 1920 x 1080 display resolution.
High- End Processor
According to various online sources, Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime (or Samsung Galaxy F) will arrive with a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor bundled with Adreno 420 GPU, 3 GB RAM, and 32 GB storage capacity. It will reportedly run on Android 4.4.3 Kitkat operating system
Several Color Variants
On Twitter, @evleaks had previously posted that there will be five colors to come for Samsung SM-G906 - black, white, gold, blue, and sweet pink. It already released a black Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime for AT & T then a few days after, it posted a blue color with Verizon logo. Then there was the very recent post showing the photo with a brushed white metal color. With three color variants already tipped, it would not be long until the other two colors will be out.
According to various online sources, Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime will come with a 16- megapixel rear-facing camera and 2- megapixel front-facing camera and optical image stabilization. This will be few notches improved compared with the 13-megapixel camera in Samsung Galaxy S4.
Samsung has remained tight-lipped on the existence of Galaxy S5 Prime (or Galaxy F) but with "Tab into Color Galaxy Premiere" scheduled on June 12, the wait is not likely to be long.
