So, all of the dust and fanfare surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S4 has more or less settled, and you can be sure that this new flagship from the South Korean conglomerate is going to make quite a buzz for itself when it is finally ready to hit the market. Having said that, this means you will have to brace yourselves for a flurry of Samsung Galaxy S4 filings over at the FCC in the near and immediate future, where the first US-bound versions of the smartphone have started to receive FCC approval, where among them include both MetroPCS (SCH-R970) and Sprint (SPH-L720) models.
Either one will feature CDMA, EV-DO and LTE, although you will have to watch out for variances if you prefer to choose the handset based on the mobile carrier of your choice. For instance, the Sprint version will feature HSPA 3G for world roaming capability, while the MetroPCS model will ditch HSPA in favor of a quartet of broad bands of LTE, which would mean support for other mid-size American networks. It will also be a matter of time before AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon models hit the FCC, too, so stay tuned.
