Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime continues to make headlines as new variants spotted hinted the device will not only come with gold finish but in glowing hues. Previously, reports considered the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A variant to be the Galaxy S5 Prime but it appears Samsung has other things planned. The LTE-A edition is only available in South Korea leaving analysts to believe Samsung will distribute the S5 Prime to international markets instead. Will the Prime edition be a killer and contender against Apple's upcoming iPhone 6?
The new Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone (L), Gear 2 smartwatch (C) and Gear Fit fitness band are displayed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona February 23, 2014.
According to the notorious tipster @evleaks, Samsung has been preparing for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime variant soon. The tipster also leaked a series of photos hinting the Prime variant to have a gold finish. Apart from the "perfect golden" Galaxy F showed previously, @evleaks also released another image showing the Samsung Galaxy F / S5 Prime in a "glowing gold" hue.

According to the report, the "glowing gold" hue is different from the "perfect golden" finish published before. This means people can choose from a variety of gold variations for the upcoming S5 Prime. Apart from the finish, the device appears to sport similar specs like rounded corners. Since the handset will target the high end market, there are talks whether Samsung will go for a pure metal build rather than just a plastic design with a metal brushed finish.
Samsung has not clarified yet whether it will be releasing the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime series or the Samsung Galaxy F. According to reports, the South Korean tech giant will reportedly release the Galaxy F as a replacement for the Galaxy S5 Prime to promote a higher end series. According to Ecumenical News, the Galaxy S5 Prime or regardless of what Samsung will promote it to be offers more killer features than the original flagship. These include LTE variant running on Snapdragon 805 processor, 5.2 or 5.3-inch screen offering 2560x1440 resolution and 3GB RAM.
