Samsung has officially showcased the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 version of its Galaxy S5 smartphone, called the Galaxy S5 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus bears model number G901F, and those looking at faster/efficient computing should find the Galaxy S5 Plus handy.

Samsung's latest smartphone is the 'world's fastest Android smartphone,' as of today.

As it is a known fact that embedding Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 within any device gives it a 'relatively faster computing' edge, the Galaxy S5 Plus should easily be a high-speed Android smartphone.

The Galaxy S5 Plus features identical hardware as that of its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S5.

But do note that Samsung's Galaxy S5 Plus incorporates a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, which is still behind the 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note 4 offers.

In case you did not know, the Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with the following key hardware aspects:

  • 5.1in AMOLED touchscreen display
  • Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat operating platform
  • 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 802 processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16/32 GB internal storage
  • MicroSD card slot for expansion up to 128GB
  • 16MP primary camera
  • 2 MP secondary camera
  • Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and microUSB connectivity
  • 2,800 mAh battery, which provides a claimed talktime of up to 21 hours, and standby time of up to 390 hours.

Once officially released, Samsung's Galaxy S5 Plus should do well to compete with the yet-to-be-released Motorola Droid Turbo that also features an identical Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.

The high-end smartphone will initially be released in the Netherlands, with a global rollout to follow shortly afterwards.
