Samsung Galaxy S5 premium variant rumours rubbished

Samsung officials have discarded rumours revolving around a premium variant of the flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S5. Previous rumours have pointed to a 'F series' Galaxy S5 that flaunts a metallic design while packing in some top of the line specs under the hood .

The news comes from none other than Samsung CEO J.K Shin who states "there is no such thing," in an interview with Kbench website (via Phonearena), when asked about the premium device.

While Shin, to some extent, disappointed Samsung fans, he also compensated by confirming a new Galaxy Note flagship phablet is of course coming for later this year. However, the Samsung CEO refrained from giving out any other details of the handset.

While Galaxy S5's F series premium variant may have turned out to be a hoax, the existing Galaxy S5 smartphone might soon receive a Galaxy S5 Zoom variant. A device codenamed Samsung SM-C115 was spotted under benchmark tests on Friday, which is assumed to be the Galaxy S5 Zoom.

The listed specifications for the alleged Galaxy S5 Zoom (SM-C115) suggest that the device will run Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The SM-C115 device is listed to feature a 4.8-inch display with an HD (720x1280 pixel) resolution. It packs in a 1.3GHz hexa-core (Samsung Exynos 5 Hexa) CPU and a Mali-T624 GPU.

The alleged successor to Galaxy S4 Zoom (rumoured S5 Zoom) will come with 2GB of RAM to support the processor. Also, the rear camera listed is a 19-megapixel camera (making 5184 x 3888 pixel images), and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera that is capable of 1080p video recording.

On the storage front, the Samsung SM-C115 (rumoured S5 Zoom) device is listed with two reported storage capacities, which likely means that a dedicated memory card slot will be present too.
