The Korean model is also known as SM-G906S/K/L (depending on carrier) or lentislte, while the European model is codenamed SM-G901F/KCat6xx. But the differences extend beyond the codenames – instead of the powerful Snapdragon 805 of the Korean model, European users will get an Exynos 5 Octa 5430 processor, and the screen is Full HD, not Quad HD. Of course, as I argued back in June, user experience could be just as good with this configuration.
The big selling point remaining for the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE is Category 6 LTE-A compatibility, which can ensure download speeds of up to 225 Mbps. That’s possible thanks to a standalone Intel LTE modem.
The other specifications will reportedly remain the same with the original Galaxy S5. The report does not specify a release period for the device, though IFA next month could be the perfect opportunity.
No news on the eventual availability of Galaxy S5 LTE-A in other markets beside Europe and South Korea.
