Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime is certified in South Korea, with a launch imminent?

There's been more fuel added to the S5 Prime rumour fire this morning, as the alleged premium version of the Galaxy S5 has picked up its certification in South Korea.

The RRA (Radio Research Agency) has actually certified three versions of the device, namely the SM-G906S, SM-G906K, SM-G906L, which according to G for Games pertain to three different South Korean networks: SKT, KT and LG U+ respectively.

SM-G906 is believed to be the Galaxy S5 Prime, or indeed the Galaxy F as it may end up being called, the premium version of the S5 which the latest rumours suggest will boast a metal chassis (pictured above), and even higher-end specs than Samsung's original flagship (including an alleged 5.2in display with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, a Snapdragon 805 and 3GB of RAM).

This model number has already been certified for Bluetooth, and the fact that all the official documentation has been put into place could indicate the handset is due for unveiling this month, as has been previously speculated.

Samsung will doubtless be keen to get this model out to go up against the LG G3 which was the first mega-resolution 2,560 x 1,440 phone to be unveiled (in the Western world, anyway), and one that's set to go on sale at the start of July.

How Galaxy S5 owners will feel about a better version of the handset being unleashed just a couple of months after the S5's launch remains to be seen.
