Samsung has announced a new, faster version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The new Galaxy Note 4 LTE-A will be equipped with the newest version of the Snapdragon 64 bit processor, as well as a category 9 LTE modem, which should promise unbeatable performance and lightning quick download speeds.
The Galaxy Note 4 LTE-A will be able to reach download speeds of 300 Mbps, which is almost four times faster than 4G LTE, says Samsung.
Samsung plans to release the Galaxy Note 4 LTE-A in South Korea in January 2015, although it is not clear yet when the device will be available in other parts of the world or how much it will cost.
The promise of download speeds of 300 Mbps is very exciting indeed and if that wasn’t enough, Samsung has also said the device will ultimately be capable of reaching download speeds of 450 Mbps by late 2015.
With 300 Mbps download speeds, Samsung says a 700MB video could be downloaded in 19 seconds and 40MB of music would take just one second to load.
Of course to be able to reach such download speeds means being connected to an super high speed network. For those of us living in Thailand, we can but hope for such speedy infrastructure, although the recent announcement that 4G will be rolled out in Thailand in 2015 is at least a step in the right direction.
