For most high-profile mobile device manufacturers, launching an upscale smartphone every six months is more than enough. There are of course a few that prefer to spread their magic around and roll out two high-end handhelds.
And then there’s Samsung, which is reportedly hard at work on not one, not two, but three end-of-the-year stunners. Yes, the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Alpha may get company, at least in Europe, where yet another Galaxy S5 variation is expected.
The SM-G901 is likely a take on the Korea-only GS5 LTE-A, although some key specs are vastly different. For instance, the G901 follows the standard S5’s suit screen resolution-wise and, instead of going all-in with Quad HD, it settles for Full HD, aka 1,920 x 1,080 pixels.
And while it ups the processing power ante, thanks to a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chip paired with an Adreno 420 GPU, it sticks to a middling 2 GB RAM. Middling for these top-of-the-line standards, because I for one still remember when I worked on a 2 GB RAM-packing laptop.
Wrapping up SM-G901’s specifications, the display measures 5.2 inches in diagonal, Android 4.4.4 KitKat runs the software show, and a 16 megapixel rear shooter is in charge of capturing memories and keeping digital point-and-shoot cameras obsolete.
GFX Bench, the source of all this info, obviously has nothing to share in terms of timelines, but the old continent-destined Galaxy S5 LTE-A should see daylight before the Galaxy Note 4. So pretty much any day now.
