Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus with Snapdragon 805 goes online on the company’s website


Last updated: October 21st, 2014 at 11:19 UTC+02:00

Earlier this year, Samsung launched the Galaxy S5 4G+ in Singapore, with the device a variant of the original Galaxy S5 but sporting the faster Snapdragon 805 processor. It looks like Samsung is now getting ready to launch this variant in more countries, as its product page has gone online on the company’s website as the Galaxy S5 Plus, at least in the Netherlands. The Galaxy S5 Plus features the exact same hardware as the Galaxy S5, but as noted above, it is powered by a Snapdragon 805 processor. However, it’s clocked only at 2.5GHz and not 2.7GHz (unlike the one on the Galaxy Note 4), though it should still offer considerably better performance than the Snapdragon 801-powered S5.

For those who need a refresher, the Galaxy S5 hardware includes a 5.1-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera, fingerprint and heart rate sensors, 16GB of expandable internal storage, a 2,800 mAh battery, and a dust and water-resistant shell. Thanks to the Snapdragon 805 CPU, the Galaxy S5 Plus should also support LTE speeds of up to 225 Mbps. The S5 Plus comes in the same blue, white, black and gold colors, though price and release details are something that remain elusive for now.
