4G LTE enabled Galaxy S4 spotted in SIRIM listing

Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE Malaysia

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will go on sale in Malaysia this coming Saturday with 4 telcos offering it on contract. So far 2 of the telcos have indicated that they will be offering the Exynos model (GT-i9500) which offers an Octa-Core processor but it lacks 4G LTE connectivity. For those craving for faster mobile internet speeds, there’s the other variant, GT-i9505 which runs on a Quad-Core Qualcomm processor and comes with LTE support.

So far there hasn’t been any sightings of it until recently it was spotted in the SIRIM approval database. Since it was just approved yesterday, we are not too sure if it will be available for this weekend launch but it is likely to be available at a later date. From the looks of it, we may just be seeing all 4 telcos offering the Octa-Core Exynos version for now.

While getting a 4G LTE supported model may be a smart choice to prepare for the future, we don’t think its a big deal if you go with the Exynos 3G model. Currently the 4G LTE coverage is rather limited and it will take some time for its coverage to blanket more populated areas nationwide.

Thanks @weisheatan for the heads up!

Two things; stocks have already been distributed to major telco outlets thus making it definitely available during launch and to give a time frame for the 4G LTE coverage, the entire Klang Valley will be covered by 3rd quarter this year.

It's a big deal for a user like me who'd rather not change a smart device like underwear in terms of frequency? On S II I9100G right now and if I'm in the market, the LTE enabled Snapdragon 600 inside I9505 will definitely be my hands down selection. A non-issue if our mobile device market are as robust as global's at trade-in upgrades from telcos but it's simply not the case.

you know what, Apple just put their LTE enable with just an update. Samsung, they need to change some features in order to get the LTE feature. Android sucks!!

    There's a big difference between the 2. The Apple iPhone 5 already supports LTE natively but runs on a different frequency while for S4 there are 2 specific models – with LTE and without LTE.

      Thats why samsung sucks.
