Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime spotted sneaking into India for ‘R&D purpose’

Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime spotted sneaking into India for ‘R&D purpose’And with one phone officially born (the OnePlus One was announced this morning), another new one is rumoured, and so the circle of smartphone life goes on.

The elusive Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime was originally tipped to launch alongside the bog standard model at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February, and here it’s spotted sneaking into India for a little research and development.

Not for the first time, credit goes to Zauba, which records details of products imported into India, often including unannounced phones.

Here we’re raising our eyebrows at the SM-G906K and SM-G906S, said model number having been tied previously to a purported Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime benchmark.

Interestingly, the SM-G906K and SM-G906S are destined for Korea Telecom and SK Telecom respectively, which possibly suggests – but doesn’t necessarily mean – Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime exclusivity in South Korea.

Rumoured Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime specs include a 5.2in QHD (2560 x 1440) display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM and a 16MP rear camera, which should be more than enough to upset early adopters of the Samsung Galaxy S5.

What do you think? Bit cheeky of Samsung prepping an improved model when the Galaxy S5 has only just gone on sale? Or all’s fair in love and smartphones?
