Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A launching this month in Europe?
Samsung is reportedly getting ready to release its Galaxy S5 LTE-A in Europe, not long after it launched the handset in its home country, South Korea. According to Dutch website Techtastic, the S5 LTE-A should be available in select European markets starting this month.

As we told you a few weeks back, the European Galaxy S5 LTE-A carries the model number SM-G901F. Techtastic discovered a User Manual for the SM-G901F, which appears to be confirming the fact that the device supports LTE-Advanced. There seems to be at least one difference between the European Galaxy S5 LTE-A and the Korean version (seen on the left). While the latter sports a 5.1-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (being Samsung’s first Quad HD smartphone), the European model allegedly has a display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. Of course, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

The S5 LTE-A SM-G901F should be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor cocked at 2.5GHz. Other than that, it’s likely identical to the standard Galaxy S5 that’s been available to buy since April, featuring a 16 MP rear camera, heart rate sensor, fingerprint recognition, a 2800 mAh removable battery, and so on.

We're assuming that the S5 LTE-A will be a bit more expensive than the regular Galaxy S5. But we'll see if that's true when the handset hits shelves in Europe.

Couldn't they have just released it in Europe along with releasing it in South Korea? I mean this is the device everyone wants! (Better than the original S5)

The performance of the alpha is above every other phone graphic wise so it doesn't really matter.
