Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 800 and LTE-A appears on Orange as S4 Advance
Samsung is apparently not keeping the improved Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 800 processor and LTE-Advanced support for Asian customers only. Coded GT-I9506, the phone just popped up on Orange France, rebranded as the Galaxy S4 Advance, just like it appeared on Swedish carriers recently, as well as German ones.

So far we had it outed in Korea, dubbed Galaxy S4 LTE-A, taking advantage of the blazing download speeds on SK Telecom's new 4G network. Japan's DoCoMo could also brag with a Galaxy J, which is essentially a Snapdragon 800-laden S4, too, though this one sports 3 GB of RAM like the Note 3.

Now Samsung is bringing the upgraded Galaxy S4 Advance to the good people in France for EUR 70 on a two-year contract, and one can only hope the speedy sibling of Samsung's top-selling flagship will spread around the globe soon, maybe even cross the pond stateside. See what a difference LTE-Advanced makes compared to a regular 4G network in the S4 LTE vs S4 LTE-A download speed test below.

The Cortex A15 are way much better than the S805, and the S800.

Now htc has to learn from Samsung which is releasing an updated s4,but when htc releases an updated version be it one x+ or sensation xe or what was it called, you Samsung fans couldn't stop complaining about htc releasing a new phone every month and that being stupid. I really sorry for you.

First I thought to get Note 3 but then I heard snapdragon 805 is on horizon, it's foolish now to take s4 800 equipped processor . Thanks dammy! Opsss sorry Sammy but snapdragon 800 processor is now old thing and I will now better wait rather than try to finish the remains of snapdragon 800 chunks

The 800 is an old thing? You do realize that the Snapdragon 800 is still one of the best contenders out there. Despite releasing the 805, 800 still is quite powerful. The 805 is a minor improvement to the 800.

look iHamzaDev I have never said that 800 processor doesn't pack steroids but it is when you will get The Next deca durabolin filled T-Rex Processor in few months why Opt SnapDragon 800 and yes 800 is now old at least on papers when Qualcom unveiled 805
