Upcoming Samsung Phones 2014: Galaxy S5 Plus Now Available In Europe, Boosts Chipset To Snapdragon 805, Faster Cat 6 LTE Connectivity


One of the upcoming Samsung phones for 2014 is the newest version of the Galaxy S5.

It’s as if the Korean brand is still not pleased with itself with the numerous versions of its current flagship, it adds another member to the Galaxy S5 family. 

Everyone, meet the Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus.

According to the report by GSM Arena , the new Android-powered device has appeared on Germany’s eBay website.

The bidding for the new Galaxy S5 Plus starts at €400, though there are also retailers who sell the new handset at €530.  So what’s the difference between the Galaxy S5 which launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year, and the new Galaxy S5 Plus? Not much.  The new smartphone gets a bump in the chipset department, improving from a Snapdragon 801 (2.5GHz) to a Snapdragon 805 (2.7GHz).

It’s not that much, but it is still improvement, and in a world where manufacturers release newer and better versions of their smartphones in mere months, it is important o get a future-proof device.  Other additions include a faster Krait 450 processor and Adreno 420 GPU, and Cat 6 LTE, which is faster than the previous model.  Truly, Samsung is still a the top of the Android food chain worldwide, but it is slowly losing its ground in China, which is dominated by local brands like Xiaomi, Huawei and Lenovo.  That is also the case in India, with the rise of dirt-cheap smartphones which are of decent if not above average quality.  Right now, the Korean manufacturer may be trying its best to keep other markets under control, and those include Germany, and the rest of the EU countries.
