Samsung upset a lot of early Galaxy S5 adopters back in June when it announced the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, an improved version of the Galaxy S5 with a better display and a faster processor, just two months after the original first went on sale. However, it was only made available in South Korea.

Now a similar handset has popped up on international Samsung product pages with a new moniker — Galaxy S5 Plus — indicating a worldwide launch could be right around the corner.

Google is slowly rolling out 1080p streaming within the official YouTube app for all Android devices that support it, but it seems the change is happening pretty slowly.

Sony’s upcoming Xperia Z3 will pack a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor combined with 3GB of RAM, according to a new report, but a super sharp Quad HD display will not be appearing on its specifications sheet.

As is often the case, however, third-party developers have devised a tweak that makes 4K video recording even better.

It also boosts 1080p recording from 30 frames-per-second to 60 frames-per-second — but you’ll need root access to install it.
