Once again, the rumor mill produced a bit of truth. Samsung has now announced a new model of the Galaxy S5 for Korea that features some improved specs over the original model. The new model is dubbed the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, and as you might suspect, it supports LTE-A connectivity. Some of the boosted specs include a 5.1-inch QHD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display at 577 PPI, 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 CPU, Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB RAM.
The Galaxy S5 LTE-A is certainly an improvement over the standard Galaxy S5. One aspect that didn’t improve was the battery, which remains at 2,800mAh. We’re curious to see how long the LTE-A GS5 can last with the improved and obviously more power-hungry specs. The Galaxy S5 LTE-A is set to go on sale this week exclusively on South Korea. The device will be sold on SK Telecom with a US equivalent price of $919. Six colors will be available including, black, white, blue, gold, pink, and red–all with some fancier name.
If this device was available globally, would you purchase one?
