Samsung launching Galaxy S5 4G+ with Snapdragon 805 and Full HD display in Singapore

While we’re all waiting for the international version of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A to become official, Samsung is busy preparing the launch of the Galaxy S5 4G+, a new variant of the company’s flagship with a Snapdragon 805 processor. The upgraded model will be launched in Singapore on August 23 and support carrier SingTel’s world first commercial 300Mbps 4G LTE-A service in the country. However, unlike the Galaxy S5 LTE-A for South Korea, the Galaxy S5 4G+ doesn’t differ from the standard Galaxy S5 in any aspect except for the faster chipset.

That means you’re looking at the same old Full HD 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display, though the lower resolution does mean that the Galaxy S5 4G+ will offer impressive performance over the standard and LTE-A Galaxy S5 models. Other specs are the same as well, including 2GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera, fingerprint and heart rate sensors, 16 GB of internal storage and a microSD slot, a 2,800 mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat. The phone is dust- and water-resistant as well, and will retail at a price between SG$0 to SG$688.

Samsung will also launch the Galaxy Alpha 4G+ in Singapore, though details on what will change and how much it will cost are yet to be revealed.

I have gone through every coceivable Galaxy S5 equivalent in the market, and I must say the most perfect of the bunch is the Galaxy S5. It is so sad that it crashed on sales worldwide. Ok, so the expectations driven by people have helped in this, but if anyone really evaluates the S% on its merits, be it software or hardware, then everyone will know the truth. SO let Samsung introduce different versions. They have a right to generate as much interest in this underrated model and drive sales upwards. The S5 must get paid its dues rightfully.

The S5 was burnt down because of the tons of variants coming from the S2, S3, S4 and hundreds of other Samsung’s phones + competition. Samsung competes with itself and there’s also competition from outside, which by the way is a LOT more organized and with fewer models to choose from than what Samsung provides.
Samsung is becoming a mess in the smartphone market and they must learn that this is not TV or home theater business: people like to upgrade their phones pretty often and fewer options mean better products, lower costs and better marketing . They are doing it so wrong that it will be only comparable to Microsoft and Sony, which are not very well as of now.

Took them long enough. Not sure why they couldn’t release the 4G/LTE variant right off the bat. MY Sony Xperia Z1 Compact has LTE off the bat.

Samsung just LOVES to release 20 different variants of the exact same crap.

They should sell their washing machines and dryers department to Whirlpool or something and divert the resources to making better electronics. Instead of 20 of the exact same BS.

The S5 does support 4G/LTE, right from release. LTE-A/4G+ are not the same.
Different variants are for different regions, depending on the local infrastructure and requirements, you should only be concerned about what’s available in your region.
Please don’t post irrelevant BS if you don’t understand technology.

The unlocked version doesn’t have LTE.

The S5 Mini doesn’t have LTE either.

My Z1 Compact is Compatible with several 4G bands. From ATT, Tmobile, etc etc. (800 / 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600)

Samsung makes things too complicated.

Why do people get so mad when new phones come out. If they called it galaxy s6 people would cry its not enough changes. If they call it completely differnt name people would cry oh there goes samsung making more and more phones like htc did. Call it a variation of one that exists, people cry oh i just got mine and another comes out. Samsung is in the business of making phones it believes people will buy. People should know by now something better than what you just got will be out in less than half a year. Why not be happy with what you have. If sometimes newer comes out that you must have, then you must pay. If you cant buy another phone shortly after buying your most recent, then you should be investing your money in more worthwhile things not commodities.

Releasing new phones isn’t the issue. Here we are, not even six months into the lifecycle for the GS5 and how many variants are there already? 5? 7? 50? It just seems a little ridiculous in such a short period of time.

Apple releases 1 or 2 phones per year and they sell tens of millions of units. Samsung takes the shotgun approach by releasing dozens of devices per year, with multiple variants of their supposed flagship devices. Maybe it’s that shotgun approach that is hurting their sales and profits?.

Bullsh*t yet again lol. Remember last year than Samsung released the CAT4 variant (S800) of the Galaxy S4 in Q3/Q4 2013?

Another varíant of S5? Is going to be a fiasco, like S4 LTE-A!!! (gt-i9506)…

Virtually zero support, even though it can compete to a brand new S5!

4.4.2 official is already out for this phone, along with CyanogenMod11 unofficial nightlies with solk or temasek kernel, both are very stable. Options are available…

“will retail at a price between SG$0 to SG$688″

never in my life ever I heard a device’s retail start from the price range which has a lower limit of zero. completely ridiculous and makes no sense to me
