A UK mobile carrier has confirmed that the new smartphone from Samsung, the Galaxy S4, will arrive with LTE support right out of the box, which would clearly be in line with the expectations of the multitude considering how this is going to be the flagship smartphone for the South Korean conglomerate, at least for the coming year.
So far, the teaser image of the purported Galaxy S4 from the front did not leave any clues as to the availability of LTE support, and neither did Jeremy's face show signs of LTE connectivity when the Galaxy S4 he carries around in his little box of wonders was shining like a mini sun in there.
As mentioned earlier, it goes without saying that any flagship smartphone worth its salt deserves to come with LTE connectivity these days, so for a confirmation to arrive one day earlier than the handset’s actual announcement will always elicit a collective sigh of relief all around. With LTE support, the Galaxy S4 is capable of gaining access to 4G speeds on the 1800MHz spectrum, which is what EE's network is running on where the UK is concerned.
Surely other bands will be supported in different markets, and it is only a matter of time before we see different versions of an LTE-enabled Galaxy S4 make its mark somewhere else. Are you counting down the hours and the minutes before the Galaxy S4 is truly unpacked, ready to take a huge bite out of the smartphone market?
