Back in December, rumours claimed that another version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, called the “Galaxy Note 4 S-LTE” (SM-N916), would sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor, making the phablet the first device to come with the most powerful processor from the chip maker under the hood. However, a new report is saying that the device will not come with the said processor but Samsung’s Exynoss 5433 instead.
The news comes to us courtesy of Japanese-speaking site RBM. According to the site the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 S-LTE will support Cat. 6 LTE (downlink speeds of as much as 300 Mbps). Additionally, the phablet will support the 10MHz +10MHz +20MHz tri-band carrier aggregation, which are South Korean network operator SK Telecom’s LTE-A network frequencies this month. In 2016, when Cat. 9 LTE is widely available, the Note 4 S-LTE will be able to downlink at speeds of up to 450 Mbps.
Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 S-LTE will only be available in South Korea. Bummer! Pricing and specifics on availability are yet to be determined.
