New smartphone announcements are often followed by the discovery of an FCC filing and the GALAXY S 4 is no exception to that rule. It seems that while Samsung was busy unveiling the GALAXY S 4 in New York City, the FCC was busy putting the final touches on the filing. This particular filing is for the international version of the handset, which really just goes to say that we should be seeing another in the not to distant future.
Anyway, while we wait for that next filing, lets cover the details from this one. The FCC filing shows the GALAXY S 4 as having support for GSM on the 850/1900 Mhz frequencies, WCDMA on the 850/1900 Mhz frequencies and LTE on band 5. The real clue as to the model comes in with the LTE support, for AT&T you would be looking for band 17.
Nonetheless, this model would bring some support for T-Mobile and/or AT&T. The filing itself did not carry much that is worthy of spending time reading and offered the basics such as the label statement, the confidentiality request letter, FCC ID label and location (seen in the above image) and the test report.
FCC filing aside, those who have yet to get enough of the GALAXY S 4 coverage should make a point to go back through our coverage. We have had details on the announcement as well as some hands-on time, accessory coverage and even a bit about what HTC has had to say on the matter.
