Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A launching this month in Europe?

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.
