Why are there 2 LTE versions of Samsung's flagship Galaxy S4? What is the difference between Galaxy S4 LTE and LTE-Advanced? Well, let me try to explain the answer to these two questions. There is one International version of the Galaxy S4 right now, which is the GT-I9505. This was released at the beginning together with the Exynos version. Back then there was a lot misunderstanding related to these two versions, and what is the difference between them. Now we find out that Samsung has launched yet another version of the Galaxy S4, the LTE-A one, probably on the 'the more the merrier' principle. This one carries version number GT-I9506 and was initially released only in Korea, because it was the only place capable of providing network speeds for this kind of technology. Now we can see that the LTE-A is getting closer and closer to an international release.
