Galaxy S5 To Come in both Standard and Prime Versions
Galaxy S5 might not be at all what we believe, or at least this is what the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities considers. To be more specific, he claims that we shouldn’t be talking about a single model as long as Samsung Galaxy S5 will actually come in both Standard and Prime versions. The major difference between them is supposed to be under the hood; we are referring to their processors and RAM, while the other specs would be the same. Are all these new details completely real? We cannot know for sure at this point, but let’s face it: this possibility of choosing between two Galaxy S5 variants is more than tempting, so here we have more info:
Let’s start by telling you that the Standard Galaxy S5 version might get its power from a quad-core Qualcomm MSM 8974AC processor (also known as Snapdragon 800) or from an eight-core Samsung Exynos 5422 model, of course paired with only 2GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the Prime Galaxy S5 option would be the one packing an upgraded eight-core Exynos 5430 processor that is supposed to come along with 3GB of RAM.
As for the rest of the specs, they are the same including a 16MP rear camera and a secondary front-facing 2MP one, as well as a 2850mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner and even 3D Gesture Support, but things aren’t quite clear when it comes to their display. Certain rumors point that both these Standard and Prime versions should have a 5.2-inch WQHD display (a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels), while other change the balance to a similar 5.2 inch display, but with a different resolution. So, the Standard model is supposed to have just full HD 1080p resolution, while the Prime version – a 2K resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixel, with an amazing density of 565 ppi.
And if we have all imagined a metallic body from the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5, we couldn’t have been much far from the truth. Kuo clearly specifies that both these smartphones are made of durable plastic and there is no chance to see any metal in their construction.
So, we cannot stop wondering about the price of such devices. As our source suggests, there is a big chance for the company to offer the Standard model at a premium price, while the Prime one should mean paying some and extra money, but nothing is known for sure at this point.
