Samsung Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A announced in South Korea

gs5-lte-aSamsung continues to work on their Galaxy S5 smartphone by offering yet another variant, this time around with the Samsung Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A that has been revealed over in the company’s home country, South Korea. This new revamp of a flagship device will deliver an advanced multimedia experience in addition to the fastest download, web browsing, multimedia streaming and application loading speeds. Touted to be the world’s first, commercially available Broadband LTE-A (Cat.6) smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A will merge the technological innovations of the flagship Galaxy S5 alongside new, advanced features and up to triple the network speeds to produce an unparalleled multimedia experience.

Underneath the hood of the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A lies a quad-core 2.5GHz processor and 3GB RAM, not to mention delivering an experience of up to triple the connectivity speeds (a whopping 225Mbps if you want to get exact) when one is downloading files. This more or less translates to uninterrupted high-resolution streaming of your favorite shows, in addition to stronger and faster speeds when you are involved in games playing games or when downloading a music video, where 10MB will take all of just 0.4 seconds of your precious time, now how about that?

Apart from that, do expect the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A’s 5.1” WQHD Super AMOLED display to blow you away, sporting a resolution count of 2,156 x 1,440 pixels, delivering more colors and detail than ever before, putting a HD display to shame. There is also the same 16 megapixel camera with HDR, Auto Focus and Selective Focus, all the while maintaining the IP67 rating to make sure that you need not worry when it rains, as well as support for S-Health and a Heart Rate Monitor.

Just in case you happen to be interested in the Samsung Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A, it will arrive in South Korea later this summer in charcoal Black, shimmer White, electric Blue, copper Gold, sweet Pink, and glam Red shades via an exclusive offer from SKT. There is no word as to whether other countries would be on the receiving end of this smartphone variant in due time or not. Surely this would be a decent challenger to the iPhone 5s‘ successor?
