Samsung's Galaxy S5 gets a refresh

We’ve been hearing rumors for a while that Samsung was going to refresh its Galaxy S5 smartphone with a faster processor and high-resolution display. Today, Samsung officially unveiled the refreshed smartphone packing the exact specs that we told you about earlier this week (save for one detail).
The Galaxy S5 LTE-A, like the LG G3, features a 2560x1440 QHD display. However, due to its slightly smaller screen size (5.1” versus 5.5”), the Galaxy S5 LTE-A is slightly sharper at 577 PPI (versus 538 PPI for the LG G3). A Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor (with 3GB RAM) is also onboard along with an LTE-A modem capable of speeds of up to 225 Mbps. All other specs remain the same.

The one detail that didn’t come to fruition was the metallic back housing; the Galaxy S5 LTE-A looks externally identical to its lesser-spec’d sibling. Perhaps the metal-bodied Galaxy F is still in the pipeline.
As for availability, it looks as though the Galaxy S5 LTE-A is a South Korean-only product for now. The company has yet to announce plans for a global launch.
