News & Reviews: Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A Malaysia launch
Last Updated: Jul 02, 2013
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).

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).
