Deutsche Telekom has announced that it will soon upgrade its LTE network to LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), supporting download speeds of up to 150Mbps. And guess which device will be the first to support this infrastructure boost – yup, it’s Sammy’s Galaxy S4 LTE-A, which is already selling in South Korea.
If you recall, this model doesn’t just offer greater download speeds, but also comes with a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. In comparison, the existing model that is offered by Deutsche Telekom and many other operators all around the world uses Snapdragon 600 or Sammy’s own Exynos 5 Octa chip.
According to AllAboutSamsung, the existing model will be phased out as soon as the upgraded network launches… And we guess that other operators in Germany will follow suit in order to stay relevant and keep their clients.
