Yesterday, we came across a rumor suggesting that Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime will hit the retail shelves in June with a QHD display and Snapdragon 805 chipset.
Now, there’s another rumor suggesting Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo is in the pipeline of the Korean OEM. An entry was spotted on Zauba for a mobile device with a model number SM-G750 with the same 5.1-inch screen size as the flagship device.
Samsung has launched Neo versions of their popular handsets, with trimmed down specifications and a budget price tag. We’ve seen a Galaxy Note 3 Neo, Galaxy Grand Neo and even a Gear 2 Neo smartwatch, so it makes a lot of sense that we might see a “Neo” version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 as well.
Additionally, it rumored to come with a trimmed down 720p resolution, compared to the 1080p found inside the flagship device. The alleged SM-G750 made its way to India for testing purposes, and we could see the handset hit retail in the coming weeks. In addition, it’s rumored to come with a Snapdragon 800 SoC, so it will be a decent device if its real.
Obviously, Samsung may bump the resolution to 1080p in the final version, but that might not be the case considering previous Neo devices. Nonetheless, it will be a powerhouse, and may cost you a little less compared to Galaxy S5, provided you can compromise with the lower resolution.
We’ll update you if anything else pops up, until then, take this rumor with a grain of salt as there’s no official word from Samsung about any such device.
