EE goes Captain Obvious, confirms Samsung Galaxy S 4 with Exynos can have LTE, too
Bloomberg already confirmed today that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 is to sport two chipset verions - for the US and international one. The US carriers version will be sporting a 1.8 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600, which of course means that it will host a 4G LTE baseband modem inside, as Qualcomm integrates those radios directly into the SoC design.

The international version is said to come with 1.9 GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor of Samsung's own making, which doesn't have the baseband radio integrated, but rather tacked on where needed. Still, if anyone was still wondering if the international S 4 version will support 4G LTE networks, where available, the UK carrier EE is shedding some much unneeded light on the puzzle with the following tweet:

It is good to have 4G LTE, but seriously, everybody is only excited about the design right now.

It's the other way around Daniel, you got the clock speeds wrong: International version with 1.8 GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor US carriers version with 1.9 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 (and also in UK too from last news, probably because some carriers have deployed LTE there, or may be they'll have both versions, depending on the carrier)http://www.phonearena.com/news/UK-bound-Samsung-Galaxy-S-4-gets-benchmarked-specs-revealed_id40778

Well, it's not like I wasn't waiting for the Note III anyway, but it really sucks that on the S3, and now the S4, Sammy is having to use another company's SoC. That is what kept me from switching to AT&T to get the original Note. If it's not all Sammy....I don't want it. Luckily, by the time the Note III is released, Sammy will have integrated the LTE Radio into the Octa!
