According to Korean-speaking ZDNet, the yet to be announced Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime will offer download speeds of up to 225Mbps. The maximum 4G LTE download speed is 75Mbps.
Korean network operator SK Telecom’s LTE-A network is capable of delivering data speeds of up to 150Mbps, using the 10MHz x 10MHz spectrum. However, it would have to use a 20MHz bandwidth to achieve speeds of up to 225Mbps.
Other than the required bandwidth, the only chip that supports download speeds of up to 225Mbps is the Qualcomm MDM9635. Samsung has reportedly ordered 1 million units of the said chip.
Other rumoured specs of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime include a 5.2-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) screen, 32GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, and 3GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime is expected to make its debut at around the same time or soon after LG lifts the lid on the LHG G3 (also sports a QHD screen). LG will officially unveil its next flagship on the 27th of May.
