Did you just buy a Samsung Galaxy S5?

We have bad news.

A new Samsung flagship smartphone - dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime - has turned up online.

The device appeared on the Indian import site Zauba as "SM-G906K" - an identifier code used by Samsung on all of its mobile devices.

The phone was apparently shipped for "R&D" and we're not convinced yet that this is a smartphone ready for the mass market before the autumn.

But the specs alone look impressive enough to consider waiting for. The phone is said to run a Snapdragon 805 processor, and feature a stunning 2560x1440 pixels display. It would also have 3GB of RAM (matching the Xperia Z2), an Adreno 420 GPU, a 16-megapixel main camera, 32GB storage and run Android 4.2.2.

We'll have to wait until IFA in Berlin (late August) at the earliest to see the phone (if it exists, or really is set for release).

But it looks impressive - and it would certainly be one way for Samsung to keep pace with Apple when the iPhone 6 is released later this year.
