Samsung Galaxy S5 Review 18

It won’t be long until the Galaxy S5 goes out of style. According to information provided to GSM Arena, more details about the “prime” version of Samsung’s flagship have been unveiled, possibly confirming that, yes, the handset will sport a 2560×1440 display. But that’s not all, Samsung fans. There are also hints of an S5 mini, along with a follow up to Samsung’s Galaxy Mega, which could include a 6-inch display. Samsung knows no bounds.

A source provided what is supposedly the screen resolutions for each device, thus confirming each of their existences. The Galaxy S5 Prime, internally codenamed Lentis, will come with a 5.2-inch WQHD screen (2560×1440), bumping up from the Full HD screen available in the current Galaxy S5. Like we said: this year won’t just be about introducing a lineup of mid-range alternatives. Samsung is going to outdo its own flagship with a super flagship. HTC might also join in on the fun, reports claim.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S5 mini, which we’ve seen hints of before, will reportedly sport a 4.5-inch display with 720p screen. This is obviously aimed at the mid-range crowd, and at those who don’t want a behemoth phone in their pocket no less. Samsung’s Galaxy Mega follow up is expected to come equipped with an enormous 6-inch 720p screen—that’s not the biggest out there, but pretty darn big. We actually caught a glimpse of the Mega successor, previously though to be the S5 Neo, on Samsung’s own site. Here are some specs: 2.3GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.3 and that lower resolution screen.

We aren’t getting a thorough unveiling of Samsung’s upcoming lineup, but it supposedly confirms these devices are on the way. Early adopters: are you upset that there’s a prime version of the S5 on the way? It’s unclear when these devices are set to hit, though they’ll probably be available after summer. You know, when that other big flagship is expected to come out.
