South Koreans Upset over Galaxy S4 LTE-A Refresh

A few days ago we reported on a story that Samsung would soon be releasing a refreshed version of the Galaxy S4 with a faster processor and LTE-Advanced capabilities.  While no word was given on when or if this new refresh would be released in the United States, it was definitely going to be released in Samsung’s native South Korea.  South Koreans aren’t too happy.

The Galaxy S4 launched just under 2 months ago, and the fact that a faster version is already being released is somewhat of a slap in the face to their customer base.  Of course, when it finally rolls out in the United States, it’ll be the same dilemma the company is facing.  Perhaps keeping the Galaxy S4 moniker wasn’t a great idea for the new handset?  We actually don’t even know the name of the new variant yet, but it could be made much more expensive to help everyone feel better, but we doubt that will be the case when it launches in a few weeks.
