Samsung Launches Galaxy S4 LTE-A for South Korea
Samsung has officially launched the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A for the South Korean market. This is mainly because SK Telecom have also launched the world's first LTE-A network featuring speeds of up to 150Mbps for mobile devices. This is more than double that of existing LTE networks. Asides from having LTE-A built-in, the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A also has the latest and greatest 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and processor (which also means it comes with the faster Adreno 330 GPU).
Other tech specs seem to be the same as earlier versions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 including the 2GB RAM, 5-inch Super AMOLED 1080p display and 2600 mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A comes in 2 colours, Arctic Blue and Aurora Red. Design-wise nothing much has changed either except for the LTE-A logo on the back of the chassis. Since we're still struggling with just LTE implementation here in Malaysia it may be a while yet before we get the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A or a Snapdragon 800 version could come later in the year.
