Samsung SM-G906L certified in South Korea, could be LTE-A variant of standard Galaxy S5
Well, the mystery just continues to deepen when it comes to the rumored Galaxy S5 Prime. The device has been rumored to sport model number SM-G906, at least in South Korea, and today, an SM-G906L has been found to have received certification in Samsung’s home country. Now, while this is a good indication that the SM-G906L could soon be made official, it looks like this might just be the LTE-A variant of the Galaxy S5 for South Korea. According to information we’ve received, the SM-G906L could be the Galaxy S5 LTE-A for carrier LG U+. Furthermore, the SM-G906L user agent profile (UAProf) on Samsung’s mobile website lists it as having a 1080p display – UAProf listings are almost never wrong, which certainly reduces its chances of having a QHD display.
Basically, all of this makes us believe that the SM-G906L could simply be the LTE-A variant of Samsung’s latest flagship, with a newer processor (a Snapdragon 805 as opposed to the Snapdragon 801 on the standard S5), similar to how the Galaxy S4 LTE-A featured an upgraded CPU over the Galaxy S4. However, will so many rumors pointing at the SM-G906 being the Galaxy S5 Prime, all of this is speculation and could change as more details crop up in the coming days.
