Samsung today announced a new version of its current flagship smartphone that sports a higher resolution, a faster processor and faster connectivity.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, which the company claims covers 90% of the colour gamut, and has a 0.01ms response time and a 100000:1 contrast ratio.

Under the bonnet is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with a 2.5GHz quad-core Krait processor, an Adreno 420 GPU and 4GB of RAM. Just like the original S5, the device also sports a 16MP rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, a hear rate sensor, a 2800mAh battery and IP67 certification.

But the most interesting new feature of this phone can be found in the connectivity department. The device is equipped with an LTE-A radio that allows download speeds up to 225Mbps, around three times the speed of ordinary LTE (LTE-A is only available in select countries).

The Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A will be initially offered in South Korea for around US$919 and will come in black, white, blue or gold.
