Samsung Project KQ might just be the premium Galaxy S5

Even before the Samsung Galaxy S5 came out into the market, we had been hearing about two variants of the phone and as it appeared the second version was planned into a more luxurious portfolio. This premium verison has been surfacing ever since the flagship released and now we are even hearing some rumors about it and a few leaks from here and there. A recent leak has given away a code which indicates that it has become pretty evident by now that such a verison of the S5 is going to be revealed soon and it is currently in its development stages. This evidence was obtained by SamMobile and their findings suggest that the project is named "Project KQ", while the S5 had been known internally as merely "Project K".

The leak also states that the development process has been haltd due to shortages of certain components. This new Project KQ is expected to encompass the Galaxy F-line of products which also fall into the premium range. It is going to feature a QHD 5.2" display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution. And whether it is Super AMOLED or not, we still dont know. And just like with all other Samsung higher end devices, it is most likely that this Project KQ will also be launched in different version each of which will feature a different chipset.

The model which South Korea is going to get will sport Samsung's latest octa-core Exynos 5430 chipset featuring the quad 2.1GHz Cortex-A15 and quad 1.5GHz Cortex-A7 cores in addition to an 600MHz ARM Mali GPU. This version will also get a display controller to handle the QHD display. 8K UHD playback will also be made possible with a new HEVC video decoder and an audio co-processor, called the Samsung "Seiren", will handle sound encoding and decoding.

Good news fo the European Samsung fans because the European version is going to get an Intel LTE modem (XMM7620) which has speeds of up to 300Mbit/s down and 150Mbit/s up. There is no clear news on what the US market should expect but it will most likely be quad-core Snapdragon 805 chipset because that is going to be present in at least one of the versions.
