The Galaxy S5 Prime will also feature a microSD card slot that will offer support for 128GB cards, plus a 2 megapixel front facing camera and a 16 megapixel rear camera.

LG are getting ready to unveil their new LG G3 smartphone this month, the handsets specifications are very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, and we suspect the Prime could also be made official later this month,

As yet we have no confirmation if the photo above is of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, it could be some sort of replacement back cover for the handset, although it does come with the Samsung logo, as one Redditor pointed out, which could mean it is an actual Samsung casing.
