Samsung denied all the Galaxy S5 Prime rumors, but new evidence reveals that a high-resolution variant of its flagship may arrive soon. First, the SM-G906S appeared in a benchmark result page on GFXBench. Now, the handset which is believed to be the Galaxy S5 Prime has just been spotted on Indian import site Zauba.
The page that mentions SM-G906 on Zauba does not reveal much about the handset itself, but follows the pattern of previous such leaks. Four SM-G906K handsets left South Korea "for R&D purpose," claims the shipping manifest. Unfortunately, it is not known when will this smartphone make it to the market or its commercial name.
The SM-G906S handset, which appears to be a slightly different version of the so-called Galaxy S5 Prime was spotted on GFXBench loaded with Android 4.4.2 KitKat and features a 5.2-inch display with 2,560X1,440 pixels, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of memory, 32 GB of internal storage, and 2 MP/16 MP cameras. Since that database entry is no longer available the handset may arrive really soon, but that remains to be seen. We will keep you posted.
