We may still be following rumors for the Galaxy S5 Prime, however it looks like Samsung does have some special models in the works. The Galaxy S5 “Crystal Collection” handset was recently revealed by way of a short YouTube teaser. The video is just 12 seconds in length and shows a Galaxy S5 that is covered with crystals.
In this case those would be Swarovski crystals. Samsung has said the handset will be arriving in May, but so far we have yet to see anything in terms of market availability or pricing. But having said that, we aren’t expecting this one to come cheap.
One hint does come with the YouTube channel this was posted on; Samsung Mobile Korea. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a crystal covered Galaxy device, and if we follow previous patterns — we expect the availability to be limited. Samsung also didn’t specify if, or how the specs would differ from the regular model Galaxy S5.
The overall design looks rather sparkly, but we have to look back towards the Galaxy S5 Prime as that is the one we are more interested in seeing. Recent rumors for the GS5 Prime suggest the handset will debut with a QHD display at 2560 x 1440. There was also talk of that handset being powered by the Exynos 5430 processor, which is ARM big.LITTLE and 64-bit.
