Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A manual points to upcoming European release

Samsung looks set to bring its supercharged Galaxy S5 to European markets, as an English language manual for the handset leaks online.

With the high-speed, high-power Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A currently available exclusively in the manufacturer’s native Korea, Dutch site TechTastic has leaked an English user manual for the Cat 6 4G LTE capable handset.

Although many European networks cannot currently support the Cat 6 phone’s possible 300Mbps speeds, the S5 spin-off has further high-end improvements up its sleeve which are sure to appease potential owners.

Despite the standard Samsung Galaxy S5 already leading the way with its Snapdragon 801 CPU, the LTE-A model introduces the all new, and more powerful, 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset.

Sadly, it does not appear that the European S5 LTE-A will benefit from all the same market-leading specs as its Korean counterpart.

With the LG G3 QHD display reportedly knocked on the head for the phone’s European arrival, the handsets 3GB of RAM also looks set to be stripped back to 2GB.

A planned European release for the handset is still unclear, although it has been suggested that the phone could be one of multiple devices to share the stage at Samsung’s September 3 IFA Unpacked event.

With the iPhone 6 pre-empting Samsung Galaxy Alpha having been unveiled yesterday and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 widely expected to make an appearance on September 3, it appears the Korean phone maker could have a strong handset line-up heading in to the final months of 2014.
