Samsung announces dual-mode LTE versions of the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Mini
Just in case there weren't enough variants of the Samsung Galaxy S4 on the market for you, Samsung has announced two more. It turns out that both the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S4 Mini are going to be released with versions capable of dual-mode LTE. These models will join the ranks of the Galaxy S4 Active, and the Galaxy S4 Zoom.

Samsung claims that the devices are the first in the world to support both the TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE standards although the ZTE LTE Grand Era may hold the actual claim to that title. FDD-LTE is the current standard around the world, but TDD-LTE is the next step in LTE evolution, and is only available in a few networks around the world.

I would imagine most people will replace their phone by the time LTE advanced rolls out. So I don't really see this as a big deal.

You buy a phone based on their benchmarks?

No, but partially based on the reputation of the company. So for a sh*tty company like samsung who did this sh*t, I'll never buy stuff from them.

This is why Samsung owns the market. Them releasing a product nearly every week and their hefty marketing budget is why they're on top. Yet people say it's because they make the best products that can never be compared to anything else because they're so much better. Not even close. I wonder if they'll do the same thing with the Note series, that'll be funny. "Galaxy Note III mini, exactly like the Galaxy S4, but it's a Note!"
