EE SIM

If there were a flagship phone launching in the UK -- or anywhere, for that matter -- without 4G LTE capabilities, we'd be a little concerned. That's why we're not terribly surprised to see EE, the UK's only LTE operator, revealing that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 will come with support for its burgeoning LTE network.

"Ready for #TheNextGalaxy? It's coming to superfast 4GEE," the company tweeted out this morning. EE's also got a pre-registration page up for those wanting to show their interest in the Galaxy S4. (As we reported yesterday, other carriers and retailers are doing the same.)

Not long to go now -- we'll be live from New York City tomorrow evening to bring you full coverage of Samsung's big Galaxy S4 launch.

EE confirms Galaxy S4 coming with 4G LTE support, we feign surprise

Seems we are at an interesting point in smartphone development. Most years I have been more than ready for something new that can handle things better than last years model. This year I find that I have no issues with last year's S3 that desperately need addressing. Most phones can now do what we need, so the release may need to be something pretty special to impress.

WOW 4G AND LTE!? Mind Blown, I knew it would have 3G. I was hoping it would have 4G, but wow LTE too!?

This is remarkable! Does it have wifi?

...like the Nexus 4?

I think 3 network would disagree, their "ultra fast" as they call it, network gets faster speeds than EE's crappy over priced 4G. I don't care if the next three nexus phones aren't 4G capable as 42Mbps capability on a network that actually delivers is more than fast enough for anything HD or high quality.

Agreed. I feel the same way about networks here in the US. Hell, I'd be fine if I can only get around 7.2Mbps 3G. I was on crappy Sprint service a few months ago. I couldn't get 1Mbps unless I used a hack to put in a Verizon PRL file, or if I walked a mile and had perfect access to a nearby WiMAX tower. Ridiculous.

Nexus 4 + 4.2.2 = ?
