Samsung Galaxy S5 4G+ to feature Snapdragon 805; model to launch in Singapore on August 23rd
According to a report published on Thursday, another variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is on the way. Named the Samsung Galaxy S5 4G+, the specs are said to match the regular version of the phone, with one difference. Under the hood is a quad-core Snapdragon 805. The phone is scheduled to be launched on August 23rd in Singapore for SingTel, and will be capable of performing on that carrier's 300Mbps LTE-A pipeline.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 4G+ is nothing like the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A. The latter features a 5.1 inch 1440 x 2560 resolution Super AMOLED screen, and a whopping 576ppi pixel density. The former is equipped with the 5.1 inch 1080 x 1920 resolution Super AMOLED screen found on the regular version of Sammy's flagship handset. The pixel density works out to 432ppi on the Galaxy S5 4G+. The price for the phone ranges from $0 USD to $550 USD ($688 SGD) depending on the plan.


In addition to offering this variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 in Singapore, Samsung plans on introducing a "4G+" model in September for its metal clad Samsung Galaxy Alpha phone. There is no word on what will make the Samsung Galaxy Alpha 4G+ different from the regular model, but we do expect it to be offered for SingTel.
