Samsung made the 4G LTE-A version of the Galaxy S5 smartphone official in the native market back in June 2014. Now, if the report from Samsung-bound tech site SamMobile is to be believed then the Galaxy S5 LTE-A is all set to reach the European markets very soon.

Coming Soon:  Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A Variant With Snapdragon 805 CPU


The European variant, which carries a model number SM-G901 has also recently appeared on the GFXBenchmark database. As per the leaked information, the device will come powered by a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor and Adreno 420 GPU, similar to that of the South Korean variant. Also it will bear a 2 GB of RAM instead of the 3GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory and come with Android KitKat 4.4.4.

However reportedly, the Galaxy S5 LTE-A European version will sport a standard 1080p Full HD resolution instead of 1440 x 2560 pixels Quad HD display that was featured on the Korean model.

Additionally, what is peculiar about the display of the SM-G901 model is that it measures 5.2 inches which is an inch larger than the one found on both the Galaxy S5 LTE-A and the regular Galaxy S5 smartphones.

According to the recent leak the primary camera used in this device is listed to have a resolution of 16-megapixel but it might be the same 16-megapixel ISOCELL sensor, which is used in the Galaxy S5, along with a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter.

It should be noted that the benchmark tests are not always accurate and hence these features can be changed when the phone will be officially launched. Thus, don't take the specs as the final one as yet.


Talking about the pricing and availability, it is not clear when Samsung might officially announce the LTE-A variant of the Galaxy S5 in the European market, but since IFA 2014 is fast approaching, you can expect to see the smartphone in September in Berlin. Pricing of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A variant for European market is yet to be disclosed.
