According to ETNews.com, the new upgraded Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A has been a huge hit in Korea, with 150 000 units shipped in 14 days since its launch.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A comes with the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC rather than the Snapdragon 600 that powers the international version, but is otherwise identical to its predecessor. The international variant comes with a 5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, 2 GB of RAM, 13 megapixel rear camera, 32 GB in-built memory, microSD card slot and IR port.
Except for iPhone, no foreign smartphone vendor has been able to crack Korean market in the last few years. And Samsung's main rival -LG - has scheduled the announcement of its first LTE-A supporting G2 smartphone for August 7th. Another major smartphone OEM in Korea - Pantech - hasn't even even announced when it plans to have its first LTE-A device ready.
