Samsung GT-i9506 (possible Snapdragon 800 version of the Galaxy S4) clears the FCC

The Samsung GT-i9506 is believed to be an international version of the Galaxy S4 with LTE-Advanced connectivity. Like the S4 LTE-A that was exclusively launched in South Korea in July, the GT-i9506 seems to have a Snapdragon 800 chipset inside.
The existence of the GT-i9506 is now confirmed by the FCC. The Commission’s documents show that this is indeed an S4 variant, but can’t clarify if there’s any LTE-A flavor in it. The only LTE band mentioned by the FCC… Read more

Samsung SGH-T999L. Is this T-Mobile’s Galaxy S III with LTE?

T-Mobile is the only major carrier in the US that doesn’t have an LTE network. Sure enough, it does offer 4G services, but they’re limited to HSPA+ 42Mbps. All this will change next year, when T-Mobile is going to launch LTE, obviously helped (financially) by its parent company, Deutsche Telekom. T-Mobile’s official goal is to roll-out its LTE network and cover roughly 100 million people by mid-2013. Thus, it could introduce quite a few LTE smartphones and tablets in the… Read more

AT&T launches the Sony Xperia TL on November 2

AT&T is launching a  new Android smartphone made by Sony: the Xperia TL.
