Seems like Samsung is all set to release the Galaxy S5 LTE-A in Europe. The Korean giant just released a European firmware that is based on Android 4.4.4 Kitkat. The release of the firmware is peculiar and a huge hint towards the imminent release of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A in European countries. The firmware is currently available in United Kingdom and Switzerland and hopefully, we will see it making an appearance in more countries as well.
IFA is less than 2 weeks away and will be held in Berlin, we are assuming that Samsung decides to debut the Galaxy S5 LTE-A alongside the Galaxy Note 4 at their press conference. However, there is a chance that Samsung announces this earlier than IFA like it did with the Galaxy Alpha because the spotlight will be given to the Galaxy Note 4 exclusively. Whatever the case is, let’s see how Samsung carries it.
As for the specifications, the Galaxy S5 LTE-A isn’t all that different. However, if you compare it with the South Korean sibling, then there are some major differences. Firstly, the screen resolution isn’t QHD, it still remains at FHD. Secondly, the processor isn’t Snapdragon 805, instead of that, it’s an Exynos 5430 with 2 gigs of RAM. There’s a 16 mega pixel camera on the back, a 2 mega pixel on the front. And all the features are the same as other siblings including a heart rate sensor, and a fingerprint scanner. The smart phone will be powered by a 2,800 mAh battery.
We have no words on the pricing or availability but let’s hope Samsung soon lifts the curtains. The model number for Galaxy S5 LTE-A is SM-G901F.
