The Samsung Galaxy S4 has been hitting the headlines in recent weeks, on account of its record breaking sales figures. It was recently reported that despite rumours that demand is slowing down, sales have topped 20 million units during its first two months on the market, a figure which its record breaking Galaxy S3 predecessor took one hundred days to achieve.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is by far the most advanced offering to date by the South Korean manufacturer. Its key features include a 5 inch 1080p display, 1.9 GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.2.2 Jellybean OS with Samsung's TouchWiz Nature UX interface, 13 megapixel camera and an innovative package of Samsung applications, setting the device apart from rival handsets.

Samsung launched a new version of the Galaxy S4 recently, with LTE-Advanced connectivity. LTE-Advanced is the next generation mobile wireless standard, offering even faster download speeds than 4G. Earlier this week, SamMobile reported that sales of this version of the phone hit 150,000 units during its first two weeks on the market. Of course, the high sales of the Galaxy S4 mean that this may not seem like the most newsworthy figure, but these sales only apply to one country. Currently, the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A is only available in South Korea, homeland of its manufacturer.

The spec list of the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A reads largely the same as that of the standard version of the phone. There are of course a couple of notable upgrades though. Obviously, the first is its LTE-Advanced connectivity, but the phone also comes with more processing power in the shape of a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

South Korea is currently the only market this version of the phone is available in. However, with the increasing availability of 4G infrastructure in a number of countries, there is every chance that this version of the device will be made available in other markets. If Samsung decides to release the Galaxy S4 LTE-A in Britain, would you choose it over the standard version? Let us know in the comments section.
