A couple of weeks ago, Samsung announced a very interesting revision of its popular Galaxy S5 smartphone. Exclusively launching in Korea, Samsung debuted the Galaxy S5 LTE-A edition. From its name, you’d probably pass it up as being a special device, but the specifications are far superior than the original Galaxy S5 that was released back in April. Take a look at the overview and comparison video below…

Inside of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, you’ll find a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and a stunning 5.1-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 (576 PPI), and it will support LTE-A speeds of up to 300Mbps. Pretty impressive specifications for a phone that will never be widely available.

YouTube user OT4Tech recently published an in-depth overview of the Korean Galaxy S5 LTE-A edition and we’ve embedded it below. The video compares the Korean model to the current Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG’s G3 and he also performs some very interesting display tests between them all. There are several hardware and software differences between the two and the video below does a great job at tackling all of them.
