The Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime is real, called the LTE-A - but is a South Korea exclusive

The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy F, previously known as the Galaxy S5 Prime, is real and it has a quad-HD screen - but it will only be available in South Korea.

Officially called the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A, the handset has a 5.2-inch display with a quad-HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 - the same as the LG G3 and double that of the regular Galaxy S5 - and a massive pixel density of 576 per inch

The Galaxy S5 LTE-A is powered by the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, clocked at 2.5GHz and with 3GB of RAM.

As the name suggests, the LTA-A version can access even faster 4G internet than the S5, with speeds of up to a staggering 300 Mbps.

Although available in a range of colours, the phone’s widely leaked metal chassis has failed to become a reality. Instead, the new phone has the same plastic construction as the regular S5. Also shared with the S5 is the LTE-A’s 16-megapixel camera, IP67 waterproof certification, heart rate sensor and fingerprint scanner.

Those colour options include Charcoal Black, Shimmer White, Electric Blue, Copper Gold, Sweet Pink, and Glam Red 

The phone is thought to go on sale in South Korean on 19 June and will be priced at 940,500 won, or around £540.
