There Will Be Two ‘Plastic’ Variants Of The Samsung Galaxy S5, Predicts Analyst


KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has been a popular name ever since he has predicted that Apple will put in a TouchID fingerprint scanner with the then unannounced iPhone 5s. It is also important to note that Kuo has very close connections in the mobile industry which makes his words and predictions trust-able.

And today, Kuo has made another bold statement sending out research notes to his clients saying that there will be two versions of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone. One is the ‘Prime’ as he calls it with the other being the ‘Standard’ version. If you’re thinking that the prime version will sport a metallic body, you’re wrong. As the analyst said that both variants will still be made of plastic.

The major difference between the two versions though are coming from the inside. He said that the prime will be powered by a 32-bit octa-core Samsung Exynos 5430 processor, while the standard version will carry a 32-bit quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, which was produced using a 32-bit octa-core Samsung Exynos 5422, like that of the prime version.

The other difference comes with the screen resolution. Both will feature a 5.2-inch display, but the prime variant will obviously sport a higher one at 2560 x 1440 (565 ppi), while the standard comes with a still impressive 1920 x 800 resolution (423).

Both variants is said to pack 3GB of RAM, a 16MP/2MP camera combo, a fingerprint scanner, 3D Gesture Support, and a 2,850mAh battery.

Wether Kuo’s prediction will be as accurate as what he did with the iPhone 5s or not, we will only know once the device/s gets it’s actual announcement. We’ll keep you updated like we always do.
