It looks like the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A is going to be the first LTE-Advanced smartphone out there. The information was made official by Samsung, who also states that we will now have a twice as fast internet speed. Specs seem to be similar to those of the Galaxy S4, with slightly differences regarding the processor, but we will get back to that in a moment. The Galaxy S4 LTE-A will be released in Korea this summer (no specific date announced yet) but we couldn’t find out if the device is going to be available world-wide. We do know, however, that it will come in two colors, Blue Arctic and Red Aurora, and perhaps following others, after the launch.
Getting back to the specs, we were saying something about the processor. Well, it will be the most recent generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with 2.3 GHz Quad Core. The smartphone will have a capacity of 32GB, with a MicroSD card slot for an additional 64GB. The battery seems to be the same as in the Galaxy S4, according to our source (Li-Ion 2600 mAh), so does the screen – a Super AMOLED capacitive 5.0 inches, multitouch, 1080 x 1920 pixels display, with corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
The cameras are also the same as in the Galaxy S4 – a 13MP LED flash rear one and a 2MP secondary front-facing camera for video calls and self-shooting. Thought the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the best smartphone on the market? Think again, because, with a faster network speed, you won’t be needing anything else besides the Galaxy S4 LTE-Advance. We couldn’t find out the price tag yet, but we believe it would be worth it. The LTE-A measures 136.6 × 69.8 × 7.9 mm, weights 131 grams and runs Android 4.2 with TouchWiz. Stay tuned for extra information, we’re talking about a top smartphone here.
