Samsung readying midrange Galaxy S5 Neo, report indicates

Recent chatter suggests a smaller, and likely lesser-powered version of the flagship smartphone could be in the works.

Samsung could soon be ready introduce a "Neo" version of the Galaxy S5 smartphone, one rumor says.

Initially discovered by Galaxy Club last month, multiple versions of the model number SM-G750 (SM-G750F, SM-G750H) have been spotted at Zauba, a website that tracks Indian imports and exports.

Specifications for the SM-G750A, for example, point to an Android 4.3 device with a 5.1-inch 720p display and a 2.3GHz processor. Since it has the same size screen as the Galaxy S5, it could be a "Neo" version of the flagship model, similar to Samsung's treatment with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. If history is an indicator, a Galaxy S5 Neo would feature lower-powered hardware and carry a lower price tag.

A User Agent profile found on Samsung's website seemingly confirms the device; the "A" suffix hints at a possible AT&T release in the US, though we should look for this phone to pop up globally.

While Samsung does have a Kapture the Moment press event scheduled for April 29, it's unlikely the Galaxy S5 Neo will part of the announcement. Instead, we should look for a new Galaxy K line of products there instead.
