    There’s a lot of stuff that happens in the tech industry, something that is especially true when it comes to giants like Samsung. If you missed out on some (or all) of what happened over the weekend, well, here’s a recap of all the big things that went down.

    The cream of the crop was an alleged look at what is supposedly a Galaxy S5 Prime. We usually don't take leaked pictures of upcoming Samsung flagships too seriously as the company does a stellar job at hiding them from the public, but the S5 Prime photos do look plausible, as we can see changes like a relocated loudspeaker and ultra-thin bezels that are surrounded by a metallic rim. This could still be a far cry from the actual design, but hey, it's what we have till Samsung decides to publish some official pictures.

    In other news, a lot of upcoming Samsung phones had their model numbers leaked, thought this didn't bring us any new details on their specs. The 7-inch version of the Galaxy Mega 2 apparently got leaked over in South Korea as the Galaxy W (yes, we know there's another Galaxy W from a few years back, but hey, it is how it is), while the Google Play edition of the Galaxy S5 got itself certified from the Bluetooth SIG, and so did the Galaxy S5 Prime.

    Here's the full rundown:

    As usual, a lot of devices got firmware updates as well, so here’s a list of all the updates that rolled to Samsung devices over the weekend (as always, you can find all the firmware you need in our firmware section):
