Galaxy S5 LTE-A Appears With 2K Display, Snapdragon 805 Processor

Samsung may have a Galaxy S5 Prime coming soon, but it’s possible that device will launch alongside a Galaxy S5 LTE-A smartphone. A new product page recently surfaced on, which refers to the phone by name and provides some specs. While it isn’t official, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for Samsung to release such a product.

Last year, for example, Samsung launched the Galaxy S4 LTE-A model for SK Telecom a few months after the Galaxy S4 made its debut. LTE-A devices are capable of running on LTE-Advanced networks, which are available in some parts of the world but so far haven’t launched in the United States.

The product page lists the phone under the SM-G906S model number and suggests it has 3GB of RAM, a much sharper 2560 x 1440-pixel display and a Snapdragon 805 processor. The Galaxy S5, by comparison, has 2GB of RAM, a 1920 x 1080p display and, in the U.S., a Snapdragon 801 processor. There’s one photo of the phone posted and it appears to otherwise look identical to the existing Galaxy S5.

Again, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a Galaxy S5 LTE-A phone launch in the near future, but whether or not Samsung decides to actually add a 2K display, a better processor and even more RAM is still up in the air. For all we know right now, the site might just have the specs wrong. GSMInsider
