The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 just visited the FCC

With the Samsung Galaxy S 4 dominating the news today, a version of the handset was found visiting those nice chaps at the FCC. How nice are they? Well, they recently gave the thumbs up on the reverse merger between MetroPCS and T-Mobile. Today, the FCC was entertaining the biggest star on the planet, the Samsung Galaxy S 4.

The Feds were busy examining a model of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 that had a 850 / 1900 GSM radio, 3G connectivity through 850 / 1900 WCDMA frequencies and support for LTE Band 5. Shh. Here's a little secret. The AT&T version of the phone runs over LTE band 17. O.K., maybe that is no secret. Still, it meant that the version of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 visiting the FCC was an international model that offered some 3G connectivity for AT&T and T-Mobile customers in the states

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 will be launching in the U.S. at the end of next month and that version too, will have to get a physical from the FCC Doctors.

I REALLY wish each US carrier would get a different model like they did with the S2, because I'm not really liking how it looks :/

Why would you wish that? So that people can diminish you if you have a sprint model but praise you if you have a Verizon model?

nah carrier exclusive sucks what if your carrier only got a 16gb version and everyone else got 32gb for same price that sucks and would get most people upset.
