Through its Twitter account, Samsung confirmed that the Exynos 5 Octa processor is indeed fully capable of connecting to an LTE network. The Korean giant's latest silicon supports all LTE bands.
This announcement essentially confirms that LTE connectivity was not a factor in Samsung's decision to offer the its Galaxy S4 flasghip with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and Exynos 5 Octa processor options. Instead, it is the latter's short supply, which leads to the current arrangement.
The LTE capability of the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa doesn't guarantee that every Samsung Galaxy S4 sporting the chipset will be capable of 4G connectivity. Samsung is yet to comment further on this matter.
Full Lte support is a game changer. If it works on Verizon's network I will get one for sure.
it is Right. In fact, You can read the "DATA features" of two device. Only I9505 have "LTE, Cat3, 50 Mbps UL, 100 Mbps DL"
Exynos chips supports LTE but like the SD600 relies on an external modem. The Exynos will not have LTE because it has a Intel XMM6360 DC-HSPA+ modem.
