The device was basically the Galaxy S5 except that it featured a QHD display resolution and also came with support for LTE-A networks. Now the good news is that if you’ve been eyeing the handset but were a bit bummed by its South Korean exclusivity, you might be pleased to learn that it is available from


Now the handset will be priced pretty expensive at $749 and given that it is not officially offered by any local carrier, it means that the phone will have to be bought outright as opposed to bought via a contract. For those who enjoy having the freedom of choice, we guess this is a good thing, although that means you’d have to pay a lot of money upfront.

There is also a good chance that the LTE-A functionality will not be applicable in the US due to the different radios so essentially you will be just buying the phone for its display.
