That just leaves a question mark over the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A’s European release, but the notion of an imminent launch is given credence with the leak of the SM-G901F’s instruction manual. Huzzah!
The Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A raised eyebrows in South Korea, touching down with an LG G3-matching QHD resolution (2560 x 1440), Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, and 3GB of RAM.
The bad news is, according to a recent benchmark, the European Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A will be a slightly stripped down version of Samsung’s South Korean super-phone.
For starters, it’s goodbye QHD, hello Full HD, so that’s just 2 million pixels in a 1920 x 1080 formation instead of 2560 x 1440 = 3.7 million.
Of course, some question the need for QHD on such a small display, though we were saying just yesterday that LG G3 users will be able to enjoy 1440p content on YouTube.
Furthermore, the European Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A will supposedly drop with just 2GB of RAM instead of 3. Again, does the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A really need 3GB of RAM? Answers on a postcard.
In any case, with the leak of the SM-G901F instruction manual, it sounds like the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A’s European launch could go down any day now. Excited?
