The Samsung SM-G906S has shown itself again, this time on an official Samsung website. It first surfaced on a benchmarks website with a 5.2-inch WQHD (2560×1440) display in tow. It was later spotted making its way to a Samsung testing facility in India with the SM-G906K. It has now appeared on a web page for Samsung’s Find My Mobile service along with the SM-G906K and the SM-G906L. Listed as a compatible device for the service, it is also identified as a Galaxy S5 model.
As we have seen in the past, nothing here ties the SM-G906x devices directly to the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. This device, denied by Samsung, is expected to be a premium variant of the Galaxy S5. A rumour just yesterday suggested that it could launch as early as June, perhaps in response to the rumoured launch of the LG G3 which could also sport a WQHD display.
Based on past rumours, we expect the SM-G906S to come with a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 paired with an Adreno 420 GPU, Google Android 4.4.2 KitKat (likely with TouchWiz), a 5.2-inch WQHD (2560×1440) display, 3 GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (25GB available), a 16MP rear camera, 2MP front-camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a range of sensors including a barometer. Another variant, codenamed KQ, could launch with a new Samsung Exynos 5430 processor.
With leaks and rumours now surfacing almost daily, it may not be long before Samsung finally decides to make an announcement and reveal the Galaxy S5 Prime.
