Samsung may unveil a higher-end version of its flagship Galaxy S5 phone come June.

The rumored Galaxy S5 Prime will offer a sharper display and beefier processor, according to Asia Today, which cited information from unnamed industry sources. As reported by Sammobile, the phone would bump up its screen resolution to 2,560x1,440 pixels from the 1,920x1,080 found on the current S5.

The Prime would also be powered by an octa-core Exynos 5430 processor. The current S5 comes in two different CPU versions -- one with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip, the other with an octa-core Exynos 5 Octa 5422 processor.

Finally, the Prime edition could jettison the current model's plastic body in favor of a metal one.

Asked about a potential Prime S5, a spokeswoman for Samsung told CNET that the company doesn't comment on rumors or speculation.
