Samsung Galaxy S5-family leak points to new Mega model

Samsung Galaxy S flagships aren’t just smartphones: they’re progenitors. From those single devices we see spring a whole family of related models, and this year should be no different for the Galaxy S5. We’ve been talking about it being joined by devices like a GS5 Mini or GS5 Neo, not to mention a quad HD GS5 Prime. Today we check out a new leak that attempts to firm-up details on a few of these models, while also setting us straight about another.

We’ve already seen evidence pointing to the GS5 Mini being Samsung’s model SM-G800, and the GS5 Prime arriving as SM-G906. This new leak appears to confirm those details, reinforcing what we expected about screen resolution, and adds support for possible display sizes.

The most interesting part, though, might be what it says about the SM-G750. First we thought that might be the GS5 Mini, and later it was looking like a possible GS5 Neo. Instead, this leak claims the G750 could be the giant of the bunch, arriving as a new Galaxy Mega model with a six-inch 720p display.

That resolution might be a disappointment for users hoping that this year’s model would improve on the 720p screens in the 6.3- and 5.8-inch Megas from last year, but honestly we’re just happy to finally be getting to the bottom of the G750’s story at all, having dealt with so much uncertainty thus far.
