Samsung Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 800 and LTE-A now taking on Europe
The long-awaited refresh of the now aging Samsung Galaxy S4 is now a fact for those of you from Europe, and Sweden in particular, at least for the time being. Yes, we're talking about the GT-i9506, or said in plain language: the Snapdragon 800-touting Galaxy S4 that was first made available for the Sammy's local market in South Korea only all the way back in June. And yes, that also means that it comes packing LTE-Advanced capabilities, so it actually does make sense that the upgraded Galaxy S4 was made available for Sweden first, as it's one of very few countries in the world that is doing some real progress on their LTE-A network.
There's currently no word as to when we can expect the Snapdragon 800-equipped Samsung Galaxy S4 in the rest of Europe, though it appears that Germany is a more or less confirmed destination for the refreshed phone. That's because Samsung Germany has already listed the device, though no pricing details have provided on this or any other European Samsung store.
It's also unclear whether this tells us anything at all about the rumor of a Snapdragon 800 version of the rugged Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, though you can rest assured that we'll keep you updated as we learn more.
