Galaxy S4 Developer Edition

Launching this summer in Korea in Blue Arctic and Red Aurora

Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S4 LTE-A, the first smartphone ever to use LTE-Advanced technology. Samsung promises "twice-as-fast network speeds to produce an unparalleled multimedia experience." LTE-Advanced works by combining different frequencies, and using them as one -- something Samsung refers to as "leveraging carrier aggresion."

This new Galaxy S4 variant will have similar specifications to the current Galaxy S4, however will ship with Qualcomm's next generation processor -- the Snapdragon 800 with 2.3 GHz Quad Core CPUs. The screen, cameras, and battery capacity appear to be identical to the current Galaxy S4. Internal memory will have a capacity of 32 GB, with the standard micro SD slot available for an additional 64 GB.

So far it appears this phone will be a Korea exclusive, launching this summer. Initial color options will be Blue Arctic and Red Aurora, with more colors following after launch. The full press release from Seoul is available through the source link below.
