Samsung is all set to launch Galaxy S5 4G+ on August 23 in Singapore. The smartphone is a variant of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, which was earlier released in Samsung’s home country South Korea. The Galaxy S5 4G+ will released on the same day when Singapore is going to witness the launch of SingTel’s first commercial 300Mbps 4G LTE-Advanced service.
Coming to the specifications of the phone, it runs on Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) OS and powered by Qualcomm’s 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor. In addition, the phone features a 5.1-inch Full HD (1920×1080) Super AMOLED display, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory with option to expand up to 128GB via microSD card, 16MP rear camera, 2MP front facing camera and 2800mAh battery.
In terms of connectivity, it comes with 4G LTE-A (up to 300 Mbps) / 3G HSPA+ up to 42 Mbps, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2X2 MIMO), Bluetooth v4.0 LE and GPS connectivity. As you can see, apart from the improved processor, newer Android version, and LTE-A support, S5 4G+ is same as the 3G variant.
The smartphone will be available in Shimmery White, Charcoal Black, Copper Gold and Electric Blue colours.
