Looks like Samsung is putting special emphasis on its home market these days. After the surprise success of the LG G3 in the South Korean market, Samsung last week announced an improved version of the Galaxy S5 with QHD display and a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor.
It wasn't long ago Samsung released its Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A, and now the company has launched a special variant of the device, this one also made for the South Korea market.
The Galaxy S5 LTE-A Special Edition has the same specifications as the standard model of the Broadband LTE-A S5, but it offers a revamped rear casing. Besides a new styling, the phone remains the same in respect to hardware. Unfortunately, the new phone is limited to Samsung's home market.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A Special Edition has a large 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. As mentioned before, it is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board memory, which can be later expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card slot.
On the imaging front, there's a 16MP rear-facing camera with LED Flash and a 2.1MP front-facing camera.
The device runs on Android 4.4.2 Kitkat. Like the Galaxy S5, the new device has a IP67 ratings for dust and water resistance and a built-in heart rate scanner. The new device offer download speed of up to 225 Mbps, all thanks to LTE-A support.
It was an expected move; though, many would find it strange on the part of Samsung to launch the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A/ Special Edition a little earlier than expected.
