The Samsung Galaxy S4 family is growing in size. Another variant of Samsung’s popular smartphone lineup will soon join the original Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S4 Zoom and Galaxy S4 Google Edition. The Samsung Galaxy S4 with LTE-Advanced support will hit the stores in Korea as soon as this month. Samsung co-CEO JK Shin also revealed that the company is talking with carriers outside Korea to start offering the phone in other regions.
Samsung Galaxy S4 with LTE-Advanced
With LTE-Advanced Galaxy S4 , the Korean manufacturer is focused on super-fast data speed. The new Galaxy S4 features compatibility with LTE-Advanced network. The new technology is capable of delivering twice the speed of today’s LTE connectivity. For example, content that requires about 3 minutes for download, will land on your device in a little over 1 minute. That is certainly a huge improvement and such impressive results could appeal especially to those customers who use a lot of data on their phones.
With the new version of the Galaxy S4, Samsung is looking to boost the sales of its smartphones. Not that the company is suffering from any significant loss, since its market capitalization is still a hefty $195 billion. However, the new LTE-Advanced technology could potentially allow the company to compete more successfully against its main rivals, including Apple, Ericsson, China’s Huawei and Nokia Siemens Networks. Sadly for us, as of now there are no operational LTE-Advanced networks available in the U.S.
