sprint sparkSo, you think that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the bee’s knees ever since it came out, and cannot wait until the rumored Galaxy S5 hits the streets? Assuming you have been a Sprint subscriber all this while and have felt that LTE connectivity is insufficient for your mobile data needs in terms of speed, Sprint might have just the solution for you. The mobile carrier is offering the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S4 Spark edition, which is actually enhanced LTE, via its sales channels in the weeks to come. Of course, there is a price to pay for everything, and with the Spark edition, you will need to fork out $200 on contract, whereas the regular Galaxy S4 sells for $100 on contract.

Basically, Sprint Spark would offer you the option to take advantage of unprecedented speeds as it will merge all three Sprint bands (800MHz, 1.9GHz and 2.5GHz) of 4G LTE wireless spectrum, which is touted to deliver a far greater performance level of video and other bandwidth-intensive applications. Just make sure that you happen to live in one of the cities that have Spark coverage, otherwise it would defeat the purpose of picking up this souped up handset. [Press Release]
