Sammy might release this iteration as another S4 variant, maybe called S4 Advanced with diff pricing, sooner or later. While it may upset some customers, still there's no company as aggressive as Sammy, they ship the latest specs the earliest.
Samsung is delivering CHOICES to the Consumers also if i had the ORIGINAL S4 i wouldn't worry or upset about the new model afterall the LTE version may not work on my or your Network so how about that?

Relax. The S4 was released less than 2 months ago, and not in all markets. I live in Europe, I have the S4 and see them almost every day. When the S3 came out, I guess I saw even less of them at the beginning. Also, here carriers only started selling them and there are availability problems. I wanted to buy a flip cover, but even they are sold out.

Being upset is a normal reaction unless they sold the new device for 900 usd it will cool them down seeing the 300 usd ammount
AnonD-8044, 21 Jun 2013Samsung could ship 100 million s4 does not mean they have sold that many..I have not seen anyo... morewhere you live ? that place your home must be tiny if you can see everybody smartphone in their hands , in their pocket , in their car and in their home , to not see any Galaxy s4 phones . wow you live on an island
This is like samsung choking on its own food...."As greedy as a pig"
I also have the normal S4 with 1.9ghz quad and works great.Don't bother for the upgraded version.
deserthawk, 21 Jun 2013Don't you guys think we should even commend Samsung for releasing the newest and best technolo... moreAbsolutely not. Samsung should at MINIMUM apologize to any buyers of the vanilla S4 and preferably offer some type of trade-in deal.
The Snapdragon 600 and 800 were announced at the same time. The fact that Samsung chose to go with the S600 STRONGLY imnplied, based on their previous release schedule, that they had declined to use the S800, probably to get the phone out sooner. There was no reason could not have announced both of these at the same time (even though they wouldn't have been available at the same time), and not doing so is a gigantic dick move on Samsung's part. These phones aren't designed in a month. This phone has been in the pipeline since well before the S4's release date, meaning that Samsung did unquestionably withhold information from consumers.
Remember all the flack Apple took over the sudden release of the iPad 4? This is even worse, because it comes so quickly after the initial release of the S4.
deserthawk, 21 Jun 2013Don't you guys think we should even commend Samsung for releasing the newest and best technolo... moreNo, because this technology is not from Samsung itself but from Qualcom.
Samsung just mislead their users like always.
Don't you guys think we should even commend Samsung for releasing the newest and best technology as soon as they have it instead of waiting for the next model or putting it in the present model but at a much higher price? Don't you think it's even being generous of Samsung?
Philip, 21 Jun 2013I really hate samsung galaxy s4....from s1 to s2 to s3 and to the s4, they all look same!! I ... morewe're not interested with dead company like Nokia . so stop crying here, now hush..
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2013That's why I like Apple. They upgrade their products step by step unlike Samsung they put almo... moreReally? Seriously now? You forgot the life of the ipad 3? How long was it? 6 months? HTC did it with the announcement of HTC Butterfly S. Sony did it back then with the arc S. Samsung always has the latest/fastest processor. As soon as the new chipset got announced lg announced a phone with it. What do you expect from samsung? Wait a full year? I understand how people feel. But technology advances so fast you just can't be up to date.
