Samsung says to release a new Galaxy S4 with LTE-Advanced technology in South Korea as early as this month. We are talking double the data speed compared to standard LTE.
Samsung says in a Reuters interview that they are going to launch a new super-fast Galaxy S4 in South Korea as early as this month. The Galaxy S4 LTE-Advanced variant would transfer data at double the speed of standard 4G.
The Galaxy S4 LTE-Advanced will be powered by Qualcomm chips.
"S4 sales remain strong. It's selling far stronger than the (Galaxy) S III ... and the new LTE-Advanced (4G) phone will be another addition to our high-end segment offerings that ensure healthy profit margins," says J.K. Shin co-chief executive of Samsung.
We will not get the super-fast Galaxy S4 for a while as carriers need to first support LTE-Advanced. It is still early days for LTE-Advanced in the United States.
