Samsung ships 150,000 Galaxy S4 LTE-A handsets in Korea
Samsung continues its selling streak, despite introducing nearly a dozen models of a single phone, with their most recent Galaxy S4 iteration, the Galaxy S4 LTE Advanced model powered by the Snapdragon 800 SoC and being sold exclusively in Korea.
When Korea introduced their ultra high-speed LTE Advanced network, Samsung was the first to jump ship with yet another new model of their 2013 flagship Galaxy S4, the most exploited Galaxy Smartphone in history. Less than a month after its launch, Samsung has managed to sell over 150,000 units of their LTE Advanced supporting Galaxy S4 LTE-A model, powered by Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 800 SoC.
The Galaxy S4 LTE-A packs identical internal specifications and external design, looks and specifications. The only difference is the SoC used, the Snapdragon 800 chipset, which supports Korea’s new LTE Advanced network. We don’t know whether Samsung plans to introduce the new model all over the world, but we sure know that it won’t leave many new Galaxy S4 owners happy (cheated is the word).
