The Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime just got a lot more confusing with the latest reports. On one side, there’s the possibility of the phone arriving as the Galaxy Alpha and on the other end, a report states that the device might go official under the originally leaked Galaxy F branding. Also, the handset was previously spotted in Korea as S5 LTE-A.
Let’s start off with the Galaxy Alpha’s story. PhoneArena is reporting that SamMobile’s editor-in-chief recently tweeted the possibility of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime being rebranded to the said name. To add credibility to that information, the company recently filed a trademark application in the US for the branding, which means that a device of that name is planned for the future. Whether it will be released is a different question altogether.
Then we have the Galaxy F which was the first known name for the S5 Prime. @evleaks has shared this information claiming to have received it from a tipster, stating it to be unconfirmed and unreliable. Still, we’re covering all possibilities. The report also mentioned that the device will be launched at the company’s Unpacked 2 event and it would have a 5.3-inch display.
The most interesting part here is that the phone’s launch will mark the end of the flagship S series. And if this is true, there isn’t going to be a S6 next year. The tipster even sent in an image (see above) which doesn’t have the dimpled texture on the rear panel (see below) as previously leaked, but a brushed metal look.
Most of these rumors on the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime may not be true, but one thing’s for sure is that the company’s is working on a premium smartphone which could go official sometime this month.
