Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A will not be sold in global markets

Samsung logoRemember earlier today Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 LTE-A? The handset featured an upgraded processor, more RAM, and also a QHD display, all of which are features and specs rumored to make its way into the Galaxy S5 Prime. So does that mean the Galaxy S5 LTE-A is the Galaxy S5 Prime?

Maybe, maybe not, but if you were hoping that Samsung would release the phone stateside, you might be out of luck. The Galaxy S5 LTE-A was originally announced in South Korea and it looks like that is where it will be staying for the time being. This is according to a statement released by Samsung to the folks at Android Central.

Maybe, maybe not, but if you were hoping that Samsung would release the phone stateside, you might be out of luck. The Galaxy S5 LTE-A was originally announced in South Korea and it looks like that is where it will be staying for the time being. This is according to a statement released by Samsung to the folks at Android Central.

According to a Samsung spokesperson, “Samsung launches the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A in Korea at the end of June 2014. At this moment, there is no specific plan to provide the product to the global market.” However we suppose if you really wanted to read in between the lines, you could infer it as the LTE-A model not being released to other markets.

Instead, Samsung could choose to launch it with just LTE as there are more LTE markets than LTE-A markets at the moment. Of course this is just speculation for now but what do you guys think? Will Samsung eventually release the handset, or at least a variant of it, at a later date in other markets?
