Samsung Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A to launch this week?

Samsung logoInfo on a premium version of the Galaxy S5 keeps coming in but it fails to be consistent. The latest tidbit says Samsung will repeat the Galaxy S4 Advance / S4 LTE-A trick it did last year and release its flagship with a newer chipset.

The device will reportedly be called Samsung Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A (note that this name has been Google Translated and may not be 100% accurate). The new chipset updates both the CPU and GPU cores to Krait 450 and Adreno 420 respectively. It also ups the RAM to 3GB. The LTE speed also goes up from 150Mbps to 225Mbps for downloads.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A to launch this week?

The Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A will have a 5.1" QHD screen and not a 5.3" QHD screen (with super thin bezels) like we heard earlier. We've also seen the screen listed as 5.2" QHD.

Note the text next to the Super AMOLED logo. It pretty clearly says WQHD (which is equivalent to QHD).

The back is reportedly brushed metal (at least it has the texture) and we've seen in gold and silver.

This might be a different device than the Samsung Galaxy F / S5 Prime which at least some of the rumors detail, but the source claims the Broadband is indeed the Galaxy F.

The new device will be unveiled on the June 19 for SK Telecom so it remains to be seen if it will be an international device or a localized device like the Galaxy J.
