The Samsung Galaxy S4-New 4G Advanced LTE Model Heading For The UK

It looks like we can get set to welcome yet another new version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone.  Unlike other new models like the S4 Mini and the S4 Active this new handset will not offer anything different in terms of design.  In fact much of the models specification will remain the same but one big difference will be that the handset will offer connectivity to the brand new LTE advanced 4G networks which offer twice the standard data exchange speeds of the traditional 4G network.

Samsung are the worlds leading Technology manufacturer and the South Korean company have just revealed that we can expect to see a new advanced 4G version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 arrive before the end of the month and that the UK would be the first country to see the release of this new device.  Following its UK launch the model is expected to be rolled out across the globe although talks with international carriers are still going on with regards to who will offer the new handset.  J K Shin is the Mobile chief at Samsung and he made the announcement followed by new that the UK would be "the first with the commercial launch of the advanced 4G version of the smartphone".   The original Galaxy S4 handset already offers 4G connectivity but these speeds are set to double on the new device thanks to its ability to connect to new 4G Advanced LTE networks.

This connectivity upgrade is set to be the only change in specification on this new Samsung Galaxy S4 device.  Consumers can still look forward to the excellent Qualcomm chipset and 5 inch Full HD display along with the wide range of excellent features that the model offers.  In terms of timing Mr Shin's announcement could not have been better.  Following the recent saturation at the premium end of the smartphone market we have seen forecasters adjust predicted Galaxy S4 sales by up to 30 per cents.  Since June the 7th this has resulted in £12 Billion being knocked of Samsung shares.  Of course the saturation is a market wide problem and has hit other leading devices including the iPhone 5 from Apple.  With a host of new S4 variants set to be released over the coming weeks Samsung will be hoping that their increased range of models will help them to continue to dominate the smartphone market over the remainder of the year and into 2014.  Compare O2 deals on the SamsungS4 here
