Samsung to Offer LTE-Advanced Galaxy S4 Variant
Samsung plans to introduce a version of the Galaxy S4 with LTE-Advanced on board, according to mobile chief J.K. Shin. "We'll be the first with the commercial launch of the advanced 4G version of the smartphone," said Shin. LTE-Advanced can attain download speeds that are about twice that of today's LTE. This new device will be sold in Korea as soon as this month, and Samsung is in talks with other carriers to sell the phone outside of Korea, though Shin didn't say which ones. The LTE-Advanced Galaxy S4 would mark the fifth variation of the device, following the S4, S4 Mini, S4 Active, and S4 Zoom. At the moment, there are no operational LTE-Advanced networks available in the U.S.
