It looks like the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime or Galaxy F has been made official in South Korea, the handset is called the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A and it comes with a QHD display and a Snapdragon 805 processor.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A or Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime features a 5.1 inch QHD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, the handset also comes with a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with a clock speed of 2.5GHz.
The new Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A comes with 3GB of RAM and it also comes with updated graphics in the form of an Adreno 420 GPU, the handset also comes with 32GB of included storage. The device also features a microSD card slot for expansion which lets you add in another 128GB of storage.
This new more powerful version of the Galaxy S5 also comes with LTE-A or LTE-Advanced which is designed to offer much faster download speeds of up to 225Mbps.
The handset features the same cameras as the original Galaxy S5, up front we have a 2.1 megapixel camera for video calls, on the back of the device there is a 16 megapixel camera. It comes with the latest version of Google’s mobile OS, Android 4.4 Kit Kat and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
The device also comes with the same waterproofing as the original Galaxy S5, it will launch in South Korea tomorrow and will retail for around $920. The handset will be available with SK Telecom at first and then various other mobile carriers later on.
The new Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A will be exclusive to South Korea at launch, of course this does not mean that we wont see it launch at a later date outside of South Korea as the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime.
If Samsung were to launch the faster version of the Galaxy S5 internationally at the moment, then we suspect a lot of Galaxy S5 owners would be less than pleased, we suspect we will have to wait a few months to see this improved version of the Galaxy S5 launch outside of South Korea.
