Cape Town – Samsung plans to sell a variation of
its flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone that will transmit data at nearly
twice the normal speed, it has confirmed.
Sky News reported that Mobile business boss and co-chief executive JK Shin said the phone would be on sale in the home market by the end of June.
The new S4 will use LTE-Advanced 4G technology, an upgrade from conventional 4G called LTE, or long term evolution. LTE-Advanced offers data transmission at up to twice the normal 4G speed.
The phones will be powered by chips designed by Qualcomm, which has had a mobile phone presence since the 1980s.
