Samsung: No plans to launch Galaxy S5 LTE-A globally [Update!]

Updated Galaxy S5 with 1440p display, Snapdragon 805 set to remain Korea-exclusive

This morning Samsung unveiled a new version of its flagship Galaxy S5 powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 805 processor, with an upgraded 3GB of RAM and a new 5.1-inch QHD (2560x1440) SuperAMOLED display.The Galaxy S5 LTE-A, so called because it also supports super-fast LTE-Advanced networks, is set to launch in South Korea soon, however there's disappointing news for those hoping to get their hands on this updated model outside of Samsung's home country.

"Samsung launches the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A in Korea at the end of June 2014," a Samsung spokesperson told Android Central in response to questions on global availability for the new handset, "At this moment, there is no specific plan to provide the product to the global market."

Update: Samsung has went official and have announced the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A for the Korean market. You can read a little bit more about it right here.
