Samsung Unveils Galaxy S5 Plus With Snapdragon 805

By 01:52 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments

With a quiet whisper Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 Plus – a Snapdragon 805 version of the company's 2014 flagship. This is the small late season upgrade, similar to the Galaxy S4 LTE-A that launched late last year. Just like its predecessor the recent Plus model brings a faster LTE connection in addition to the improved performance.

The Galaxy S5 originally launched with the Snapdragon 801 chipset that included a 2.5Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core processor. The recent processor is also at 2.5Giga Hertz (GHz) but it's a recent core – Krait 450. The chipset also has a recent generation GPU – Adreno 420 – breaking away from the 3xx series.

The other change is LTE Cat. 6, upgrading from Cat. 4. The incompatibility is 300Mbps downloads instead of 150Mbps, the uplink remains at 50Mbps. If you were thinking it, yes, this is the same Snapdragon chipset that the Galaxy Note 4 comes with.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus is otherwise identical to the version that launched early this year. It has a 5.1" 1080p classy screen and not a QHD classy screen like the Galaxy S5 LTE-A. There's a 16MP capturing camera with 2160p video (no OIS like the Note), 2GB Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 16GB storage, the same 2,800mAh battery too (though the recent chipset should be more power efficient). Dimensions and weight remain the same, the IP67 rating too.

Right now the phone is available only in the Netherlands from what we can tell, Samsung's press site doesn't even have a press release for it.

Thanks for sending this in, Gijs!
