galaxy s5 lteaThere has been a lot of talk about Samsung launching a Galaxy S5 handset with a QHD display. In fact many have referred to it as the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. Perhaps that could be its name in overseas markets, but in South Korea, Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S5 LTE-A.

First of we guess the main differences here would be the fact that the Galaxy S5 LTE-A comes with a QHD display. This means that users can look forward to a resolution of 2560×1440. It will also support LTE-A, which is a technology available in Korea at the moment, which might explain why the handset was announced in South Korea and not other parts of the world.

As far as the rest of its other specs are concerned, it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB of RAM, a 16MP rear-facing camera, a 2,800mAh battery, and will run on Android 4.4 KitKat. Now these are the alleged specs of the Galaxy S5 Prime, which has us wondering if these devices are one and the same?

Like we said earlier, there is a chance that the Galaxy S5 LTE-A moniker could simply be used for the South Korean market, and that those of us living stateside can look forward to the Galaxy S5 Prime, but until we hear from Samsung officially, this is purely speculation on our part.
