The worst thing about the future is all the waiting it takes to get there. Those of us anticipating T-Mobile's new LTE-Advanced to go live have had to make do without an official list. Thankfully, just before the weekend, T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray tweeted the general location of all his company's active LTE-A sites. Read More
There's no such thing as a connection that's too fast. Samsung seems to be following that sentiment with the latest variant of the Galaxy Note 4, officially announced this weekend. The new Note 4 has something called LTE Advanced Tri-Band Carrier Aggregation, which is a fancy way of saying that its mobile download speed is faster than just about anything else on the market. Samsung claims the phone can download files at a speed of 300mbps, faster than all but the most advanced wired connections.

Being the successful multinational conglomerate that Samsung is, its products are known the world over. But some of its toys are destined for use just in its homeland of Korea. The newly unveiled Galaxy S5 LTE-A is one such product.

The Galaxy S5 LTE-A will come with a 5.1-inch 1440 by 2560 display, putting it on par with the LG G3 (the first QHD handset to hit the market). Read More

The benchmarks – along with the speedtests – were mind-boggling, but it was extremely unclear whether the rest of the world would ever get a taste of everything this new GS4 has to offer. Thanks to a new leak over at AllAboutSamsung.de (and confirmed by SamMobile's sources), we now have strong reason to think that an international version, model number i9506, is on its way.
The first look at the i9506 comes to us via some leaked screenshots of an AnTuTu benchmark, which essentially confirms the devices innards: Qualcomm's MSM 8974 CPU – better known as the Snapdragon 800. Read More
