Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Mini Dual-Mode LTE models announced

Samsung logoSouth Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics has announced new flavors of the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Mini smartphones, namely dual-mode LTE variants.

The new device models arrive on shelves with support for TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE standards, which should provide users with seamless LTE connectivity in most markets around the world.

These are the first commercially available smartphones to include the capability, showing Samsung’s determination to support LTE’s advancement on the market. However, as TNW notes, ZTE launched the dual-mode LTE Grand Era in Hong Kong last year.

“The first commercially available TDD/FDD seamless handover devices will allow customers to fully enjoy the benefits of fast mobile data communications no matter where they are.”
