Tri-band LTE Samsung Galaxy S4 coming to Sprint

Tri-band LTE Samsung Galaxy S4 coming to Sprint
On Tuesday, we told you that Sprint Spark had gone live in Chicago. The service uses tri-band LTE on a small number of handsets, and provides Sprint customers with faster data speeds and improved indoor connectivity. The service works with the LG G2, Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and the HTC One max. The circuitry on the phone quickly selects from three LTE bands and decides which one to use for a specific activity.

Another phone that will be supporting Sprint's updated LTE service is the Samsung Galaxy S4. The flagship Android handset will offer connectivity to LTE bands 25, 26 and 41. Sprint Spark is currently available in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and Tampa and the carrier says it will expand it to 100 markets over the next year.

Sprint Spark delivers download speeds of 50Mbps with the potential to offer faster speeds in the future. The enhanced Samsung Galaxy S4 will be priced at $199.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate, and a signed two-year contract. It will also be available for $25 a month with the Sprint One Up plan. The phone will be launched sometime in the coming weeks.
