The murmurings of a more powerful version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 are about as old as the phone itself, and it looks like Samsung could finally be readying the rumored device for launch. According to Yonhap News in South Korea, Samsung will introduce a version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 equipped with LTE-Advanced radios this week.
But faster data isn’t the only thing this device will have over the original, if the promotional material above is to be believed. SammyHub says the graphic lists the device as having the following specs beneath the hood:
- 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 display
- Snapdragon 805 processor
- 3GB of RAM
That lines up quite nicely with all the rumors we’ve been hearing. It’s not unheard of for Samsung to bring an upgraded version of their flagship a few months down the line. The Samsung Galaxy S4 got upgraded from a Snapdragon 600 processor to a Snapdragon 800 processor when its LTE-A version launched.
The only issue is that the original upgraded Galaxy S4 wasn’t available everywhere. Korea was its main market, and if you wanted one in most of North America and Europe you had to import it. Let’s hope the same won’t be true for the beast that’s said to be revealed at some point this week.
