The long-rumored premium Galaxy S5 gets one step closer to reality this week as a shipping manifest leaked online. Referencing four SM-G906K units being shipped for “R&D purpose”, it’s the same model number that has been the subject of additional leaks. While this is not outright proof positive of the so-called Galaxy S5 Prime, it’s more fuel for the fire. For what it’s worth, the manifest has since been yanked offline.

Specifications expected in the premium smartphone are reported to include:

  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat
  • 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 display
  • 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with Adreno 420 GPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB storage
  • 16-megapixel camera
  • 2-megapixel front-facing camera

If the rumors hold true, the S5 Prime should be encased in a stronger, perhaps metal body.

    • Only if you want lower quality photos and half the hardware from Samsung’s spare parts bin jumbled together in an ugly box…
