Samsung and its Galaxy S5 LTE-A will have some tough competition in its home market in two days when a more powerful LG G3 variant becomes available.

Known as the LG G3 LTE-A, the 5.5-inch smartphone comes with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core 2.5GHz processor with the 4th generation Gobi MDM9x35 LTE modem that can support LTE CAT 6 speeds of up to 225Mbps.

Apart from the newer processor and support for faster LTE speeds, the G3 LTE-A has similar specs as the G3 which include a Quad-HD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) display, 3GB RAM and the laser autofocus feature on its 13-megapixel rear camera. 

The G3 LTE-A will go on sale in the South Korean market on July 25 although it is not known at press time whether it will be available in other markets. Even if the LG G3 LTE-A and Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A are launched in Singapore, consumers can hardly enjoy the blazing fast download speeds as the upgrading of the 4G networks to support 300Mbps is ongoing and coverage is somewhat limited to certain areas.
