S4 LTE-A SpecificationsThe Galaxy S4 LTE-Advanced, is a powered up version of the normal S4, the difference being the processor. The LTE-A GT-I9506 runs on a Snapdragon 800 CPU while the regular LTE GT-I9505 runs on Snapdragon 600. This means that the LTE-Advanced model runs at over 20% more performance and is a lot faster.

Until now we only knew about the LTE_A version being launched in Korea a short while ago, with no info on the availability in other countries. For now Korea is the only place with LTE Advanced networks so that’s one of the reasons.

However, a short visit on the FCC website shows us that a GT-I9506 version has just been approved for using the communications networks in the US. The fact that this power monster of a device will be launched in the US, comes somehow as a bad news for those who already got the regular GT-I9505, as the LTE Advanced model is capable of much greater performances.
