An LTE-Advanced version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is slated to hit the South Korean market as early as next month. The news was delivered by the company's co-CEO J.K. Shin, so it's as real as it gets.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be one of the first smartphones to support the new LTE-Advanced standard, which promises data transmission speeds of more than double those of conventional 4G LTE.

Samsung is also looking to become a leader in an emerging network gear market, as many countries with developing 4G LTE networks are contributing to Samsung's fastest growing network gear division - with sales rising by some 30 percent a year since 2010.
