Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S4 LTE-A just as expected, following months of rumors and a last minute leak yesterday.
This LTE-Advanced Galaxy S4 is the world’s first Snapdragon 800 smartphone to be launched (the Xperia Z Ultra will be released in Q3). Naturally Samsung’s homeland will receive it first via SK Telecom but we expect it to hit the international scene soon. There is however no information on the handset’s availability for more markets or carriers for the time being.
Samsung maintains a unique position for delivering LTE innovations as a provider of the parts, devices and equipment required to deliver next generation 4G LTE services,” said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “The introduction of the GALAXY S4 LTE-A demonstrates Samsung’s desire and ability to provide consumers with technological innovations that take advantage of increased network speeds to deliver richer and fuller experiences. – J.K Shin
The Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A will be priced higher than its “plain vanilla” cousin. The handset will come with 32GB of onboard memory but a 64GB variant isn’t to be ruled out.
