Samsung's Galaxy S5 Mini, the inevitable compact version of the flagship Galaxy S5, has starred in an unofficial photoshoot with its bigger brother, confirming that the 4.5-inch handset won't actually be that much smaller. Samsung is yet to officially announce the Galaxy S5 Mini, though the specifications are now well known: a 720p Super AMOLED display, fingerprint heart-rate scanner, and a new Exynos 3 Quad processor of the Korean company's own creation.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, believed to be a higher-resolution version of Samsung's existing flagship smartphone, could have just crossed through Bluetooth certification, supporting rumors of an imminent release. The Prime title of the Galaxy S5 variant isn't given, only its SM-G906L model code, though the root SM-G906 code itself has previously been connected with the S5 Prime.
Samsung will reveal its latest tablet on Thursday, June 12th, with the company sending out colorful invites for an NYC event. The event, dubbed Samsung Galaxy Premiere 2014, promises to "Tab Into Color", with a slim slate shown in a number of Android-esque primary colors and mixed tones.
There’s another Samsung Galaxy Tab out there in the wild, this one coming with a physical design not unlike the Galaxy S5. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 has been leaked with a backside pattern the same as the Galaxy S5, bringing on specifications very, very similar to those of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014.
As Samsung is wont to do, iterations of their newset Galaxy S5 handset can be expected. In the past, we’ve seen active and mini versions of their flagship devices, but typically not a “Prime” variety. The Galaxy S5 may break that mold, offering up a premium Galaxy S5 to users in short order.
Samsung has been teasing a media event in Singapore on April 29. The actual event is for invited members of the media only and the teaser campaign uses the tagline "Kapture the Moment." Samsung is also using a large letter "K" on the media invite believed to be indicating the Samsung Galaxy K that has been leaked recently will be the focus of the event.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 may not have had the QHD Super AMOLED display some predicted, but Samsung is reportedly working on an updated, higher-resolution version, dubbed by some the Galaxy S5 Prime, as a premium retort to upcoming phones. The 2560 x 1440 handset, said to be internally codenamed "KQ", is believed to be in mid- to late-phase development and expected to deliver an experience arguably more in line with what Samsung originally hoped for its current flagship.
Samsung has just given word that it plans to hold a media event in Singapore near the end of the month. And if previous rumors are to be given credence, the "Kapture the Moment" slogan in the teaser could very well be referring to the company's next photography-centric smartphone, the Galaxy S5 Zoom, also named in some sources as the Galaxy K Zoom or simply Galaxy K.
