Are the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime and Galaxy F two different things?

Are the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime and Galaxy F two different things?Seriously, it’s a full-time job keeping up with every phone Samsung releases, and not forgetting their Plus, Core, Lite, Zoom, Active, LTE and mini variants.

Things are about to get even more confusinger, with the suggestion that the widely rumoured Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime and Galaxy F might in fact be two unique phones. I give up.

The story so far: the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, or Premium as it was also called, was tipped to arrive alongside the plain old Galaxy S5 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February, enhancing the specs of the base model.

As for the Samsung Galaxy F, it was first mentioned way back in September last year, and it was presumed – circa MWC and beyond – that it was the same thing as the Galaxy S5 Prime.

More recently, we’ve predominantly been using the Samsung Galaxy F moniker, but here comes the Galaxy S5 Prime again, with wildly different specs from those rumoured for the former. Still with me? Don’t worry; I tapped out two paragraphs ago.

According to Dutch-language site Tweakers, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime has been shown off at a network event, complete with, er, 5.1in 1080p display, and nigh on identical appearance to the existing Galaxy S5.

The Samsung Galaxy F, meanwhile, is thought to come in at 5.2in QHD (2560 x 1440), with a brushed metal finish on the rear.

Getting back to this Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime (*brain explodes*), it’s said to have a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and Adreno 405 GPU, a boost over the Snapdragon 801 and Adreno 330 on the Galaxy S5.

Two different phones? It would appear so, though it’s not clear where and when they’ll be released.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need a lie down.
