Galaxy S5 ‘Prime’ Rumors, Release Date: Samsung Galaxy F Has Been FCC Approved?

Samsung’s latest Galaxy S5 variant has just been approved for sale in the United States.

According to Tech Times, the premium version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, dubbed Galaxy S5 “Prime” or Galaxy F, has successfully made its way through the FCC and has been certified.

The smartphone is supposedly listed by three model numbers — SM-G906S, SM-G906K and SM-G906L. Given that the listed models measure in at 142mm x 72.5mm, which is the exact size of the Galaxy S5, they could very well be the new Samsung flagship smartphone variant.

Based on current rumors, the “premium” Galaxy S5 will have a 5.2-inch display with 2560×1440 QHD Resolution, 3GB of RAM, a 16MP Rear Camera and 2MP Front Camera, and a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 Quad-Core Processor. The phone is also expected to run a version Google’s Android KitKat 4.4, with the usual Samsung UI customizations.

The phone could feature a metal/plastic hybrid case. Recent “leaked” photos reveal that the phone really has a plastic case with a design or paint that makes it look like it has a brushed metal finish.

As Samsung has not officially announced the phone, all discussion remains speculative at this stage.
