Samsung have released yet another phone today, and it seems as though their desire to over-saturate the market is still as strong as ever. In a statement released today, June 18, Samsung announced the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A, a device which is better than the original Galaxy S5 in every way.
Many will argue that the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A is the S5 that the South Korean tech giant should have released in the first place, especially as the new variant has hit the market less than six months after the launch of the first S5. Initially the S5 LTE-A will only be available in South Korea, but this is likely the same phone that has been dubbed as the Galaxy S5 Prime for Europe and North America.
The Galaxy S5 LTE-A is a beast of a phone. The device will feature new silicon in the shape of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 clocked at 2.5GHz, which will be paired with 3GB of RAM. The phone will sport a 5.1-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED display that will produce a resolution of 2560x1440. Amazingly the S5 LTE-A will have a higher pixel density rating than the new LG G3 (577-ppi compared to the G3's 538-ppi).
The cameras on the S5 LTA-A (16-megapixel front, 2-megapixel rear) remain unchanged from the original S5, it keeps the IP67 rating for water and dust resistance, and it will pack a 2800mAh battery along with Android 4.4 KitKat The powerful processor, extra RAM, and the stunning screen will be able to push 4K content to the device without even breaking a sweat. The S5 LTE-A is also compatible with advanced LTE which will see the device receive jaw-dropping data speeds of 225 mb/s.
The Galaxy S5 LTA-A will certainly raise a few eyebrows thanks to to its beefed up specifications, and even if this tuns out not to the rumored S5 Prime for north America, it will certainly be seen by many as a test release for the Galaxy Note 4, which will likely feature many of the same specifications as the S5 LTE-A.
