European Galaxy S5 LTE-A (SM-G901) firmware now online, hints at imminent announcement


Last updated: August 22nd, 2014 at 09:41 UTC+02:00

Well, it looks like Samsung is preparing to make quite a few new smartphones official over the course of this month. Earlier this week, firmware for the Galaxy Mega 2 showed up online before the phablet’s announcement, and now the same has happened for the European variant of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, which goes by the model number SM-G901F. As expected, the firmware are based on Android 4.4.4, and are currently available for the UK and Switzerland. There’s no telling when the phone will be unveiled by Samsung, but as we’ve seen in the past, the appearance of official firmware is often a good sign that the device won’t stay under wraps for long.

The Galaxy S5 LTE-A for Europe, unlike the variant for South Korea, will feature a standard 1080p resolution instead of QHD, and it will also be powered by an Exynos chip (Exynos 5430) instead of a Snapdragon CPU and have only 2GB of RAM. Other specs will remain the same, however, including a 16-megapixel ISOCELL camera, fingerprint and heart rate sensors, and a 2,800 mAh battery. The phone will also support LTE connectivity, thanks to an inbuilt Intel LTE modem.
