Consumer electronics giant, Samsung has reportedly launched a new version of the flagship smartphone dubbed as Galaxy S5 Plus.

The new Galaxy S5 Plus smartphone packs pretty much the same hardware seen in the original Galaxy S5 (launched in February), the only difference is that the former packs more powerful Snapdragon 805 series quad-core processor, while the latter houses 801 series chipset, reported SamMobile.

As of now, Galaxy S5 Plus has been listed on the Samsung's official Netherland webpage, but there is no official word whether it will be released in any other global regions.

This new Galaxy S5 variant launch comes as no surprise to Samsung fans, as the versatile South Korean company is renowned for releasing (also infamously known for device spamming) multiple variants in the market.

For instance, Samsung has already rolled-out more than three Galaxy S5 variants- Galaxy S5 Mini (compact version), rugged models- Galaxy S5 Sport (Sprint model), Active (AT & T model), and more advanced 4GLTE-A model in Singapore.

It has also to be noted that Samsung first released Galaxy S5 with chipset variants- Snapdragon 801 CPU and Exynos 5 Octa-core CPU to cater to different regions based on the network support.
