Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A with Snapdragon 800 announced for South Korea

We’ve seen it leaked yesterday and today the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A became official. According to the official wording, the Galaxy S4 refresh is “the world’s first commercially available LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) smartphone”, but that’s not the only spec-bump we’re seeing.

The Galaxy S4 is either available in the Exynos 5 octa-core (dual-quad-core) flavor or in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 variant. The Galaxy S4 LTE-A received the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, running at 2.3GHz. The other specs are the same, including the five-inch Super AMOLED HD screen with 1080 x 1920 resolution, 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel main shooter, and two-megapixel webcam. The platform is still Android 4.2.2 but the internal storage is 32GB (24GB available, expandable via microSD).

Radio supports WiFi HT80, Bluetooth® 4.0 LE, NFC, and, of course, LTE-Advanced frequencies, all powered by the 2,600mAh battery.

It will be available this summer starting in Korea in two colors: Blue Arctic and Red Aurora. Samsung says more color options will be available at a later date, and we hope the wording “starting in Korea” doesn’t limit the phone’s availability to Samsung’s home market.
