The Premium version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, commonly known as Galaxy S5 Prime, will reportedly offer high download speeds.

According to the latest disclosure by ZDNet Korea, Samsung will use a Qualcomm MDM9635 multimedia modem inside the upcoming Galaxy S5 Prime.

This supports global carrier aggregation up to 40MHz for FDD category 6 and LTE TDD. Besides, this is said to be the first modem designed using 20nm technology.

Along with SK Telecom's upcoming LTE-Advance network, the Qualcomm MDM9635 chip inside the Galaxy S5 Prime will boast download speeds up to 225Mbps.

The carrier network will be able to get the download speeds by aggregating two different bands which will enable users to download 800MB package in 28 seconds or may be one minute faster than on the regular LTE network, explains Gforgames.
