Last week, South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics officially confirmed the release of a new version of Samsung Galaxy S5 on its homeland market, one that comes with support for LTE-Advanced networks, and it seems that a new, special edition iteration of the phone is being prepared.

The new device model has been spotted online with a brand-new back cover, one that features a diamond-shaped texture, as webtrek.it reveals.

The original Galaxy S5 handset was made official with a dotted pattern on the back cover, and the Galaxy S5 LTE-A variant has been unveiled with the same specs as well.

While there will be no change in the hardware specifications of the device, the fact that the new model comes with modified looks seems to bring some new life in the phone.

Unfortunately, it appears that only users in South Korea will be able to enjoy the new special edition mode, as no info on Samsung’s plans on bringing the diamond-shaped texture back cover to Galaxy S5 on other markets has been provided as of now.

The new special edition Galaxy S5 LTE-A model should arrive on shelves on Samsung’s homeland market with a 5.1-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a Quad HD resolution, as well as with the Snapdragon 805 processor inside.

Moreover, the mobile phone features 3GB of RAM, along with the Adreno 420 GPU, 16GB of internal memory, and a microSD card slot for expansion purposes.

On the back, it will feature a 16-megapixel camera with 4K video recording capabilities, complemented by a 2MP front camera for making video calls. The handset runs under the latest version of Google’s Android operating system.

All in all, the phone appears to be a great option for anyone willing to grab it, and benchmarking results that have emerged for it recently confirm that.

The Galaxy S5 LTE-A (model number SM-G906S) has managed to score 37,382 points in AnTuTu, which is quite impressive. In fact, the new handset has left the original Galaxy S5 behind, which is actually not surprising, considering that the phone has been released with a Snapdragon 801 processor inside.

Of course, the mobile phone might actually perform differently once it arrives on shelves, yet there’s no denial that it will be capable of providing users with one of the best mobile experience out there.

For the time being, we can only hope that Samsung will make the Galaxy S5 LTE-A available to more markets out here (a company’s official has recently said that there are no plans on making such a move), so stay tuned to learn more on the matter.
