Samsung to release Galaxy S5 4G+ smartphone

It always happens like this – you buy a great piece of hardware – be it a notebook, a tablet or a smartphone – for quite a bit of money only to find out in a few months that there’s a better model for the same money or even less. This now holds true for owners of the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone that will soon be superseded by a newer model that has LTE-Advanced connectivity.

The newcomer will be called Galaxy S5 4G+ and will feature LTE-Advanced, which is the latest connectivity standard that allows you to transfer data at speeds of up to 300 Mbit/sec. The new smartphone will have a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor with Krait 450 cores at 2.5 GHz and Adreno 420 graphics. In addition to that it will have a large 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display at Full HD resolution (431 ppi), 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB or 32 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot (up to 128 GB), a rear 16 MP camera, HDR, Ultra HD video shooting at 30 FPS, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 2800 mAh battery.

The new smartphone will be on the market on August 23. The device will be running Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Its price is unknown as of now.
