Import manifest reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime (with a model number SM-G906) has arrived in Delhi Airport, India. The phone is coming from South Korea and is marked for testing and evaluation purposes.
In the import document, the Galaxy S5 Prime is given a price of $360 (INR 21,245). Previous import document, which was regarding the Motorola Moto E pointed at a $137 price tag, which wasn't very far off from its actual retail ($129). In the case of the Galaxy S5 Prime, however, we feel this won't be the case.
Another interesting thing to note is that the Galaxy S5 Prime sports a 5.1" display, not a 5.2" as previously suggested. The alleged specifications of the Galaxy S5 Prime include QHD-resolution display, 2.5Hz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with a quad-core CPU, an Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Further rumors claim the phone would be capable of reaching 225Mbps download speeds.
Additionally, purported leaked images also claim to show the Galaxy S5 Prime in the flesh. Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime is tipped to debut next month, but it probably won't come at the tablet-dedicated June 12 event. The price tag at launch is supposed to be around $880.
I am seriously waiting for this phone. If $880 is going to its price, then I assume that price of S5 is going to be slashed further.
I am with you. The S5 was originally meant for a 5.2" screen.
I have to admit it, but you're absolutely correct. It's very nationalistic and somewhat xenophobic in the USA.
