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.

I'm jealous that Singapore always get the latest technologies while Malaysia are slow and like few years behind. They're already preparing for LTE-A while LTE is not available in some areas here.

Even in Finland LTE is only in the bigger cities. I believe there are even places without any GSM network xD

In India also, 4G is only in 2-4 cities, even some cities don't have proper 3G coverage.

u actually got it pretty wrong lol. in singapore, the telcos market the data speeds as 4G, but on average we get 3G speeds, 4G coverage here is spotty, very often it would drop and change to 3G, especially underground and in trains. and i know cos im singaporean.

In my opinion this is better than the korean GS4 with snapdragon 805 as 2k display is overkill , makes the phone less responsive and eats more battery . Galaxy S5 LTE-A has 3GB ram , what about this Singaporean version

That's a lie. The 2K screen paired with the 805 actually got the same battery life as the original and the screen is actually better... Check out Erica Griffin's review on the LTE-A.

Samsung should just leave the 805 to the Note 4.

Samsung should have done the "two flagships a year" thing this year, not just in Korea and Singapore, but worldwide. They made the phones, they just needed to make more of them and ship them.

Great ! Alpha 4 G Plus with Snapdragon 805 Core is one step closer to Alpha Pro. Alpha Pro can still have Samsung CPU but it can be 9 or 10 mm thick and the Battery csn be 2500 Mah, the Camera can be larger Sensor like S5/Note 4 with OIS and Camera can be flush with backplate. The Alpha Pro could be the Pocket Powerhouse some of us want without the limitations of a 6.7 mm Thin Device. The price will be like Note 4 but the Alpha Pro will be a true competitor to IPhone 6 and one of the best phones ever designed. I don't care about Apple at all but let's hope Samsung makes Alpha Pro. Would you buy it ? Fastest Android ever and Camera slightly better than S5, 32 GIG plus SD Card and approx. 2500 Mah Battery and a few other things from Note 4 for Pros and Power Users..
