We’ve already seen one too many versions of Samsung’s current flagship and here’s yet another variant joining the list as the Galaxy S5 4G+ handset. The new smartphone has been officially launched in Singapore and it’s a model of the LTE-A handset with a few modifications.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 4G+ has been officially unveiled on SingTel in Singapore. While the original model which has remained exclusive to the South Korean market features a 5.1-inch WQHD (2K) AMOLED display, this version comes with a 1080p panel instead.

Furthermore, the Galaxy S5 4G+ smartphone will also feature lesser system memory and storage as the RAM is down to 2GB and the storage is at 16GB. The phone is still water- and dust-resistant and it also offers the fingerprint reader and the heart rate monitor.
