According to Shin, the new Galaxy S4 will take slightly more than a minute for a movie to get downloaded with LTE-Advanced, whereas it takes about 3 minutes with conventional 4G. The LTE-Advanced version will be launched in South Korea this month.

"We'll be the first with the commercial launch of the advanced 4G version of the smartphone," Shin said. 

Moreover, Samsung has stated that, Galaxy S4 sales are going stronger and is selling far better than Galaxy S3. The company also revealed that its tablet sales jumped more than 3.3% since it installed brand shops within Best Buy's stores in April in US, and is now considering expanding the format in Latin America and Britain.

Shin also revealed that, the new S4 would be slightly more expensive than the current one. LTE-Advanced (4G), which is being used in the new Galaxy S4, is an upgrade over the normal LTE and support twice the data transmission speed of LTE.
