Samsung has confirmed to launch the Galaxy S5 4G+ on August 23 that will complement the launch day of SingTel’s world’s first commercial 300Mbps 4G LTE-Advanced service in Singapore.
The Galaxy S5 4G+ will be the first handset to support the high-speed network and though it is powered by Qualcomm’s 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor just like the Korean variant, both phones differ in some aspects.
The Galaxy S5 4G+ – which we assume will be sold in other LTE-A markets as well – will feature a 5.1-inch Full HD (1920×1080) Super AMOLED display and 2GB RAM in comparison with the Korean Galaxy S5 LTE-A that comes with a WQHD resolution support (2560×1440) and 3GB RAM. We’re not sure of the exact reason but Samsung could have wanted a limited market to test the WQHD display reception.
Anyways, except for these changes, we’re looking at the same Galaxy S5 with IP67 rated body, fingerprint sensor, heart rate sensor, 16GB internal memory and 2100mAh battery.
The Galaxy S5 4G+ will sell across various price points ranging from SG$0 to SG$688, depending on the plan.
Samsung will also release the Galaxy Alpha 4G+ in September on SingTel.
