Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A's European version (SM-G901) may not feature a Quad HD display
Last we heard, Samsung had no plans of releasing its Galaxy S5 LTE-A (pictured on the left) outside of South Korea. However, it looks like a variant of the handset may reach Europe eventually.

Sam Mobile can reportedly confirm that the European Galaxy S5 LTE-A carries the model number SM-G901. This SM-G901 was recently benchmarked with GFXBench, and it looks like there’s one major difference between it and the S5 LTE-A that can be purchased in Korea. While the Korean model sports a display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), the SM-G901 seemingly features a 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD) screen. Moreover, the display of the SM-G901 allegedly measures 5.2 inches, thus being a tad larger than the 5.1-inch display that’s found on both the Galaxy S5 LTE-A and the regular Galaxy S5.

Different displays aside, the SM-G901 appears to have the same 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor from the Korean S5 LTE-A, plus a 16 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera. There’s only 2 GB of RAM, though, and 16GB of internal memory.

We must keep in mind that benchmark tests don’t always provide accurate information, so the features listed above may change when this alleged European Galaxy S5 LTE-A hits the market. At the same time, we can't know for sure if the SM-G901 will be released at all. But we'll let you know if we hear more on this anyway.
