Ever since the Galaxy S5 and its plastic back went on sale we’ve been hearing whispers that a better, more luxurious iteration of the handset – the Galaxy S5 Prime – is on its way. The Bluetooth SIG, which signs off every Bluetooth-toting smartphone has just put its rubber stamp on a Samsung phone with the model number SM-G906L – that’s the model number associated with the Galaxy S5 Prime, fact fans. It looks as though the device will come running Bluetooth 4.0 but beyond that the listing doesn’t give any specs away.
The long-rumored Galaxy S5 Prime, an updated version of Samsung’s Galaxy S5, might have just popped up in a certification listing. Bluetooth Special Interest Group (Bluetooth SIG) published a listing recently showing approval of an as-yet announced Samsung product known as the “SM-G906L.” Although the listing doesn’t describe what the device’s public name will be, speculation abounds that Samsung is working on a new device dubbed the Galaxy S5 Prime, and it will launch sooner rather than later. The Bluetooth SIG listing doesn’t say what features the device might offer, but the Prime is believed to come with a quad-HD display featuring a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution. It’ll also come with an advanced chipset — either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 or Samsung’s latest Exynos processor.
