Samsung to launch Galaxy Note 4 S-LTE this week, the first phone with 450 Mbps data speeds


Late last month, we told you about the new variant of the Galaxy Note 4, meant for the South Korean market only. The phablet, known as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 S-LTE (SM-N916), was originally expected to come with the Snapdragon 810 chip, but the latest word out of Korean media has the device powered by Samsung's own Exynos 5433

The Note 4 S-LTE will support Cat. 9 LTE, which will allow for top downlink speeds as fast as 450 Mbps. The phone will handle the 10MHz +10MHz +20MHz tri-band carrier aggregation that SK Telecom's LTE-A network launched last month, too. These are all theoretically possible speeds, of course, real-life scenarios should be much slower, and yet Korea is once again proving itself to be at the forefront of mobile data speeds worldwide.

The Galaxy Note 4 S-LTE will thus be the first phone launched with LTE Cat. 9 support, followed promptly by the first phone with Snapdragon 810 chipset - LG G Flex 2 - which will also support up to the whopping 450 Mbps download speeds, and will be launched January 30th. The price Samsung would charge for Note 4 S-LTE, is still a mystery at this point, but should be quickly revealed, while the G Flex 2 pricing proved to be surprisingly decent for what the handset offers.

Wow! Great! One of the best phones in the market today and if it's comes with SD810 then it's again icing on the cake.

This proves that Exynos 5433 is powerful/equal to S810. 5433 is a generation old and just assuming the power of the next Exynos which is gonna compete with 810

What's with PA and its overuse of the comma? Do they not know the rules of basic English? I believe most of us can tolerate 6th grade writing, but it's getting ridiculous...
