Samsung has been cranking out several variants of the Galaxy S4, all with their own unique strengths added. So far, we know about the Galaxy S4 Mini, the Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy S4 Active, and now there’s a new Galaxy S4 variant that is capable of LTE-Advanced which is an even faster 4G technology still in its infancy.
Looking beyond the support for Advanced-LTE, this new Galaxy S4 variant also houses a Snapdragon 800 processor which is quite a bit faster than the Snapdragon 600 processor in the Galaxy S4. Some expect the performance boost to increase further as Samsung gets closer to a final model.
Samsung has somewhat confirmed the new device, and says it will release the first version of this new variant in South Korea sometime within the next month, but no U.S. carriers have confirmed plans for the LTE-Advanced device. AT&T, however, does expect to have their LTE-Advanced 4G network up and running later this year.
