A pair of movies have leaked displaying a thriller Samsung handset. At first it was thought the system could possibly be the rumoured Galaxy S5 Prime or Galaxy S5 Lively, however on nearer inspection it seems it’s unlikely to be both.
The writer of the movies, TKTech, states within the first video that they have no idea exactly what mannequin the handset is and speculates that it might be the S5 Lively or S5 Prime. The one seen branding is the Samsung emblem on the entrance. Allegedly it has an aluminium again panel, but in addition sports activities a thick rubber seal across the outer edge. The telephone additionally appears barely bigger than the common Galaxy S5. Feasibly, nevertheless, it might merely be a customized again panel constructed for the common Galaxy S5.
It’s operating Android KitKat with the Google Now launcher pre-loaded. So, no probability this is among the Home windows Telephone handsets Samsung is rumoured to be engaged on.
The second video emerged later displaying the mannequin quantity SM-G906, but in addition a 1080p display decision – decrease than the repeatedly rumoured 2K QHD pegged for the Galaxy S5 Prime, though apparently it appears the pixel density is 480 pixels-per-inch, which at that decision would recommend the display is smaller than 5-inches. The processor onboard can also be the Snapdragon 800, whereas rumours for the Galaxy S5 Lively and S5 Prime recommend Snapdragon 801 and Snapdragon 805 chips respectively.
Moreover, we have already seen leaked pictures allegedly of the Galaxy S5 Prime that includes the identical dimpled again panel design (albeit a metallic one) because the common S5, whereas this telephone encompasses a clean end.
A potential rationalization? Properly, it might be a Galaxy S5 Mini, however that solely is sensible with regard to the processor, decision and display measurement. The metallic construct and the potential enhanced waterproofing (implied by the rubber seal and expanded chassis bulk) are usually not so in-maintaining with Samsung’s typical Galaxy Mini MO, however then once more neither is a excessive-finish processor – that might be merely a response to the constructive reception of Sony’s premium spec Xperia Z1 Compact.
Alongside these strains, enhancing the waterproofing and including a metallic physique may be comparable strikes to please shoppers via following present tendencies, after Samsung’s common Galaxy S5 was extensively criticised for not being totally different sufficient and never providing sufficient of a premium end. That criticism has led to the corporate’s cellular design chief being re-assigned internally, so shockwaves are definitely being felt – however with all that stated, Galaxy S5 handsets are nonetheless promoting like hotcakes, with the gadget reaching Samsung’s 10 million bought threshold in report time.
