LTE speeds continue to get faster and faster. Samsung yesterday announced a new Galaxy Note 4 variant capable of peak download speeds of 300Mbps using LTE Advanced (LTE-A) Tri-Band Carrier Aggregation (CA). That’s fast enough to download a 700MB movie in 19 seconds or 10 4MB songs in about one second.
“The LTE-A Tri-Band CA smartphone is a meaningful advancement in mobile and telecommunications technologies, and demonstrates Samsung’s long-term commitment to providing innovation within the telecommunications industry,” said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “We continue to set new challenges for the industry and push boundaries to take mobile technology to the next level and deliver the best possible customer experience.”

Samsung makes no mention of the processor inside the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 LTE-A. With Qualcomm announcing earlier this month that it would add support for LTE Category 9 Carrier Aggregation connectivity to the Snapdragon 810 SoC, it may well be the processor that will power this latest Galaxy Note 4 variant.
There is no word yet on pricing and availability but the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 LTE-A is unlikely to land in Canada given that our carriers do not yet support these speeds.
