Samsung has launched four new flagship devices this year, including two smartphones and two phablets. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are the company’s current smartphone flagships, while the Note 5 and S6 Edge can be considered their flagship phablets. We’ve covered each of these devices at length, and are not here to talk about either of them. We’ll talk about some of Samsung’s earlier releases though, the Galaxy S5 and S5 Neo. The Galaxy S5 is Samsung’s flagship for last year, and the S5 Neo is the lower-end variant of their flagship which was announced back in August.

That being said, Galaxy S5 Neo is already available in certain markets, and Samsung has decided to re-brand this phone and release it in Brazil as well. Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy S5 Neo in Brazil as the Galaxy S5 New Edition. The device sports the very same internals and design as its sibling, while its model number is SM-G903. The Galaxy S5 New Edition features a 5.1-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) Super AMOLED display along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable native storage. The device is powered by Samsung’s Exynos octa-core SoC running at 1.6GHz, and a 2,800mAh battery is also a part of this package. The 16-megapixel camera is available of the Galaxy S5 New Edition, and a 5-megapixel snapper can be found up front. This device also offers IP67 certification for water and dust resistance, and 4G LTE connectivity is also a part of the package. The phone measures 142 x 72.5 x 8.1mm, while it weighs 145 grams.

As already mentioned, this device looks identical to the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo, it sports the usual Samsung design. The physical home button is located below the display, and is flanked by two capacitive buttons. The power / lock button is available on the right-hand side of this phone, and the volume rocker buttons can be found on its left side. The Galaxy S5 New Edition comes in Black, Grey and Gold color options, and the device is listed on Samsung’s official website in Brazil in case you’d like to get more info.
