As you know, Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A is a recently announced GS5 version that has managed to capture our interest thanks to its new and improved QHD screen, better connectivity and much powerful processor, but that’s not all. Have you heard about that LTE-A Special Edition with snake-like rear panel? The Korean carrier KT has just made this new edition public and here we have more details for those who want to be the owners of such a model.
Galaxy S5 LTE-A Special Edition in a brand new posterior
As you can see by yourself, this Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A Special Edition comes in a brand new posterior. So, if the perforated look of the Galaxy S5 model was not something to capture your attention, maybe this snake-like rear panel will do so. Some have already said that the device looks much better thanks to this change, not to mention that it provides a better grip than before.
And if you like a lot this new look, there are some chances to find a manufacturer that sells custom back covers, akin to the one that we have here for the original Samsung Galaxy S5 as well.
Galaxy S5 LTE-A Special Edition is an updated version
We have seen that we are talking about a new look, but what about its technical specs? We want to tell you from the start that they are unchanged! So, those of you who haven’t heard it before should know that Galaxy S5 LTE-A is the first smartphone to feature download speeds up to 225 Mbps, something that we have never experienced before.
Moreover, Samsung has upgraded the screen to a WQHD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED unit and be sure that things look simply amazing as long as the screen size remains at 5.1-inch, offering us the chance to enjoy a pixel density of no less than 577ppi.
This Galaxy S5 LTE-A Special Edition is also powered by the new Snapdragon 805 processor that comes with four 2.5GHz Krait 450 CPU cores and an Adreno 420 GPU, being the only chip able to support network speeds higher than 150 Mbps. And if you remember, we have even seen benchmarks of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A (under model number SM-G906S) and we have discovered how good it actually performs.
Other than that, the Galaxy S5 LTE-A Special Edition handset is also equipped with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, along with a microSD slot for cards up to 128GB, the rest of its specs being identical to those one that can be found on its older brother. We are talking about that 16-megapixel rear camera accompanied by a secondary 2-megapixel front-facing camera, the heart rate sensors and its fingerprint, as well as the dust and water resistant body that you’ll simply enjoy.
And we even have an unchanged 2,800 mAh battery, but we have some doubts that it will be able to offer us the same battery life as the original Galaxy S5 does due to this new ultra high-resolution display and much faster internet speeds. And finally, don’t forget that other Charcoal Black, Shimmering White, Electric Blue, Copper Gold, Sweet Pink, as well as Glam Red versions are waiting for you as well, but without this snake-like rear panel that we have seen today!
