The Galaxy S5 Prime continues to make an appearance in the wild to keep reminding us that it exists and will be launching in the near future. Today, the Galaxy S5 Prime (model number SM-G906S, reportedly the South Korean model) has been spotted on Indian import tracking site Zauba, heading to India for testing. Oddly, the shipping listing says the S5 Prime has a 5.1-inch screen, as opposed to the 5.2-inch screen we’ve been hearing about. Also odd is the unit price for the device shipped for testing – at Rs. 21,245 ($362), it’s quite low for a super-premium flagship, so it remains to be seen if these details are accurate or not.

The Galaxy S5 Prime is expected to sport a 5.2-inch (well, or 5.1-inch) QHD (2560×1440) display, an Exynos 5430/Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera with Samsung’s ISOCELL technology, LTE-A connectivity, and Android 4.4.3 KitKat. It will apparently launch in black, white, blue, gold and pink color options.
