An LTE-A version of the Galaxy S5 with a QHD screen would be more than enough for most users, but it looks like South Korean carrier KT is taking things to another level by offering a limited edition version of the device with a new back panel.
The custom Galaxy S5 LTE-A will be available in the "Olleh" series of premium devices that are sold by the carrier, and comes with a diamond textured back that is quite different from the design of the standard Galaxy S5.
Other than the new back panel, KT's Galaxy S5 LTE-A has the same innards as the regular GS5 LTE-A, which include a 5.1-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 805 SoC, 3 GB RAM, 16/32 GB internal memory, 16 MP camera, Wi-Fi ac, LTE-A (225 Mbps) connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and a 2800 mAh battery. Don't get your hopes up, as this device is exclusive to South Korea, with Samsung stating that it does not intend to launch the GS5 LTE-A in other markets for now.
What do you guys think of the redesigned back panel? Is it better looking than the original Galaxy S5?
