Samsung has officially showcased the Galaxy S5 Plus which can be considered as a minor upgrade of the existing flagship device. Galaxy S5 Plus will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.
Its hardware specs is almost similar to that of the Galaxy S5. It will have a 5.1in AMOLED touchscreen display. As mentioned before, it will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.5GHz.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 gives the Galaxy S5 Plus a ‘relatively faster computing’ edge, and Samsung claims that the Galaxy S5 Plus is the world’s fastest Android smartphone.
Snapdragon 805 offers various benefits over the Snapdragon 801 – improved memory bandwidth (roughly a 70% increase) which cuts down on multitasking bottlenecks and the upgraded GPU (Adreno 420 vs Adreno 330) is both faster and more power efficient. A new processor (Krait 450 vs Krait 400) also adds more speed to the multitasking capability.
Galaxy S5 Plus also has improved 4G performance compared to the original S5 with support for ‘LTE Advanced’. This brings the potential for 300Mbps downloads on the LTE Advanced networks being rolled out by most major carriers. By comparison the S5 supports 150Mbps downloads.
As for the release of this device, Samsung has announced an initial launch in Europe with Holland.
