Samsung has announced what it says is the world’s first commercially available LTE-A Tri-Band Carrier Aggregation smartphone. The device promises peak download speeds of 300Mbps, which is four times faster than standard LTE service available today. That much download speed will be a big plus for mobile users who like to stream video and other bandwidth consuming content.
The upgraded Galaxy Note 4 will receive LTE signal on three different frequency bands and combines them into a single, fast 300 Mbps connection that supports Category 6 network service. The available mobile bandwidth on a 300 Mbps connection would allow a user to download a 700MB video in 19 seconds.
The smartphone has a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. The OS is Android KitKat and it has a 16MP rear camera. The front camera is 3.7MP resolution and there are a number of modes for the rear camera and a Selfie mode for the front.
The smartphone is S Pen optimized and has the standard array of Google apps you expect such as Gmail and others. Internal storage is 32GB and a microSD card slot is available for expansion. Samsung crams 3GB of RAM inside along with a 3220mAh internal battery. Check out our review of the original Galaxy Note 4 for more details on the smartphone.
