The rumours are not true, there will not be an upmarket version of the Galaxy S5 but there is an updated version. Samsung today lifted the covers off the Galaxy S5 LTE-A created specifically for the South Korea market. In addition to the faster connectivity (up to 255Mbps on LTE-A, almost three times faster then LTE), the new phone features a higher resolution display and a faster processor.
The 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display gets a pixel bump pushing a of 2560×1440 pixels and a pixel density of 576ppi (versus 1080p on the standard Galaxy S5) . The new screen also has better colour reproduction (Samsung claims the display covers 90% of the color gamut), faster response time, and better contrast ratio (0.01ms response time and 100,000:1 contrast ratio respectively).
The Galaxy S5 LTE-A is also the first smartphone in the world to come with the latest Snapdragon 805 processor. The processor has 4 cores running at 2.5GHz and is mated to 3GB of RAM.
Other than that, everything else about the Galaxy S5 LTE-A is unchanged from the original Galaxy S5 including the 16MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, heart rate and fingerprint sensor as well a dust and water resistant shell. The 2,800mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat is the same as well.
The Galaxy S5 LTE-A is available for South Korea only at the moment and it sells for 940,500 Won which is about RM2,970 — pricey.
