A premium version of Samsung’s recently launched Galaxy S5 may be on the cards.

According to SamMobile, Samsung is working on Galaxy S5 “Prime,” known internally as project KQ. The standard S5 was referenced as project K.

The KQ is supposedly in a middle to late stage of development, and has Samsung’s Exynos 5430, Intel LTE and a QHD screen.

This rumor is backed up by a report in the Korea Herald, which claims that Samsung is planning to introduce a QHD screen for the Galaxy S5 “Prime” in order to better compete with LG’s LG G3 model, which is set for a May release.

The Galaxy S5 “Prime” is going to be released in “small quantities,” and is slated for a June release.

If the rumors are true, this isn’t the first time Samsung has gone for a limited release. Last year, the Samsung Galaxy Round, which featured a flexible curved display, was only released for the Korean market.

Here’s the rumored specs of the Samsung Galaxy S5 “Prime,” according to GottaBeMobile:

– 5.2-inch Display with 2560×1440 QHD Resolution

– Android 4.4 KitKat

– 3GB of RAM

– 16MP Rear Camera/2MP Front Camera

– 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 Quad-Core Processor
