Can you tell the signs of the times? For example, when the sky is dark and looks extremely threatening, what do you think of it? Surely it is going to pour, no? Well, in the tech world, you more or less get the equivalent whenever you see a device arrive at the FCC, which means it is about to be released to the general market, although this is not exactly 100% true most of the time. The Samsung Galaxy S4 that was just revealed yesterday evening has already had a pow wow with the folks over at the FCC for government approval.
What the FCC received to check out was a model that had a 850/1900 GSM radio, support for 3G connectivity via 850/1900 WCDMA frequencies, in addition to playing nice with LTE Band 5. Considering how AT&T’s main LTE spectrum is Band 17, chances are the folks over at the FCC received the international version of Samsung’s Galaxy S4, and for those who want to pick up a Galaxy S4 from a US-based carrier are said to have to wait until the end of April at the earliest. In the mean time, you might want to check out our hands-on review of the Galaxy S4.
