    Samsung just released a refreshed version of the Samsung Galaxy S4-Active in Korea. This new version is an SK-Telecom exclusive and boasts some more powerful specs than the first version. The main difference is that this one is upgraded to the faster LTE-A network capabilities. Here's a breakdown of the rest of the improvements:
    • Includes 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 instead of the 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 in the AT&T version
    • Now has LTE-A connectivity instead of "vanilla" LTE.
    • The original 8MP rear camera is upgraded to 13MP
    • Instead of the 16GB native storage found on the AT&T version, it now has 32GB storage
    • Oddly, despite the updates, the device is now lighter, weighing 147 grams instead of 151 grams
    It's disappointing that this version is unlikely to ever hit the United States. Even though we can't yet take advantage of the LTE-A here, the other features are still pretty impressive.
