The Galaxy S5 is here. We like. You should like it. Everyone's happy. But Samsung is planning to go well beyond the flagship by pushing out both an Active and a Prime version, if the latest word is to be believed.
Where it will likely deviate is in the higher IP rating due to better waterproofing and possibly a more rugged design a la the Galaxy S4 Active.

But with the S5 flagship already waterproof and dustproof, we're struggling to see a real need for an Active variant too.
The Galaxy S5 Prime perhaps makes a tad more sense. The mythical QHD-screened device has been popping up here and there for some time now, with hints at a June release if manufacturing woes don't hold it back.
The phone just appeared on a Korean website under the codename of SM-G906K, adding further fuel to speculation that it's nearing a launch.
Before it was pulled, the device listing was accompanied by a picture, but with the phone sporting a Spigen back cover to conceal its design.
A Prime version of the S5 was rumoured well before the flagship's launch so it's sounding more and more likely, though it's worth remembering that "Prime" could just be a codename for now - if the thing exists at all.
