The Samsung Galaxy S5 was released just over a month ago, and while the specs are pretty much as good as it gets for flagships at present, the mobile world is an utter floozy: fast and fickle.
In just a couple of weeks we’ll be officially introduced to the QHD LG G3, and if you think Samsung is going to sit back and let its fellow South Koreans have all the 2560 x 1440 fun, think again.
Two independent reports concur that the super-specced Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime release will fall in June – as little as four weeks from now.
PhoneArena relays word from “a tipster of ours with access to Samsung reps”, who reckons the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime release is essentially intended to spoil the LG G3’s party. It’s launching in two weeks and will likely go on sale in around a month, too.
Interestingly, one of the insiders supposedly joked that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime will be the real “S5 killer” – not the LG G3. And hey, too bad if you happened to buy a Samsung Galaxy S5 on release last month; it’s already out of date.
Meanwhile, Korean-language Naver reiterates the notion of June for the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime release, with the price tipped to come in at around 900,000 Korean won (£520 to you and me).
It’s not yet clear if the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime will remain exclusive to Korea/Asia, or if it’ll get a wider international push, but in either case, you have to think all the millions of people who bought a Galaxy S5 one month ago will be prettaaaaaay peeved.
