Samsung has introduced a new version of its Galaxy S5 smartphone featuring a more powerful processor and a higher-resolution display than the model that hit the streets just a few months ago.

The new version will launch first in Samsung’s home country of South Korea. It’s not clear if or when it’ll be available in other regions.

Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A

The new Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A features a 5.1 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel Super AMOLED display with 577 pixels per inch and the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.

By comparison, the original Galaxy S5 has a 1080p screen and a Snapdragon 801 CPU.

Other features for the new model include 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD card reader, a 2800mAh battery, 16MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC.

The phone also supports for LTE-A mobile broadband with download speeds up to 225 Mbps… in South Korea, anyway.

Samsung will offer the Android 4.4 phone through SK Telecom starting this week. The new Galaxy S5 LTE-A will be available in black, white, gold, blue, red, and pink.

  1. Couldn’t they just name it something else to avoid the ire of S5 owners?

    1. It’s only in Korea so I guess the people there would get mad. There was also a higher speced S4 in Korea that never made it into other countries. At least based on my current and likely outdated information.

      Anyway, I never understand how people get all up in arms when their device is no longer the “best” no matter how hold it is. Besides, actual perceived differences are often non-existent especially when the period between releases is short. Technology may sound like it’s moving fast but real-world performance for real-world consumer tasks aren’t affected much between iterations of technology.
