    Technave.com Top mobile phones in Malaysia of 2013

    With 2014 already here, we look back at the year 2013 for all the awesome mobile phones to have come out in 2013 for Malaysia. There were quite a lot of them, so we picked based on innovation, performance, design and potential successfully delivered. In no specific order we list out the following mobile phones that rocked our world currently available with local Malaysia support as follows:

    Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A Battery Benchmarks Appear!

    We've already seen how powerful the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and processor is from benchmarks done with the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A but it won't be very useful if it doesn't have good energy efficiency. Testing this out, it was recently put through some synthetic battery tests for 3D rendering, Video Playback and Browsing. According to the testers, the other Samsung Galaxy S4 version in the bunch is the Exynos 5 Octa powered I9500. From the benchmark results it shows that the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A gets more or less the same performance with the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 in Browsing and Video Playback but beats the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 in 3D rendering (probably due to the better Adreno 330 GPU the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset has).

    SK Telecom Negotiating LTE-A Apple iPhone 5S

    As owners of the first LTE-A network in the world, SK Telecom have approached Apple with the intention of having LTE-A support in an Apple iPhone device. Since the next iPhone to come out from Apple would be the iPhone 5S it would make it the next smartphone to have LTE-A support (and offer SK Telecom another LTE-A device for those LTE-A users who don't like the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A).

    The new Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A packs in Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 800 chipset which among others includes a 2.3Ghz Quad-core processor and Adreno 330 Graphics. There are two other earlier versions with the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 powered by Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa and the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9505 powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 chipset. While we'd love to see the battery performance, we have seen the overall performance benchmarks in both AnTuTu and Quadrant.

    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).

    Korean Samsung Galaxy S4 Owners Angry about Plus Version

    Despite only just being released, near confirmed rumours about a Samsung Galaxy S4 version (that may be known as the Samsung Galaxy S4 Plus) that is not only powered by a much faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor but also supports LTE Advanced or LTE-A have made Samsung Galaxy S4 buyers in Korea quite angry. While there are still no LTE-A networks available just yet in Korea, SK Telecom of Korea is supposedly planning to roll it out in Q2 of 2013 with a deadline due in September. As mentioned earlier LTE-A provides speeds of up to 1Gbps.

  • Rumours: Samsung Galaxy S4 with LTE Advanced Coming Soon?

    Rumours: Samsung Galaxy S4 with LTE Advanced Coming Soon?

    Hot on the heels of the recent rumour about the Samsung Galaxy S4 Plus is news that a Samsung Galaxy S4 version with LTE Advanced may be coming to South Korea next month. Coming from an announcement by Samsung's CEO J.K. Shin, the news confirms the existance of such a phone but he declined to name names. The only thing he did confirm was that it would be powered by a Qualcomm chipset and cost more than the current Samsung Galaxy S4. While LTE Advanced is not 5G, it does offer transmission speeds double than those of existing 4G LTE networks. While this also means you need to have an LTE Advanced compatible network in place already, many developed countries are probably looking to implement LTE Advanced very soon.
