Samsung Electronics has unveiled the world’s first LTE tri-band carrier aggregation technology for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The new technology, first demonstrated by Samsung at Mobile World Congress in 2014 will enable the Note 4 to aggregate three different frequency bands into one, thus supporting Category 6 networks at speeds up to 300 Mbps.
Samsung claims that this will enable users to download 10 songs totaling 40Mb in just one second, four times faster than the 4G speeds available today.
JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung said, “The LTE-A Tri-Band CA smartphone is a meaningful advancement in mobile and telecommunications technologies, and demonstrates Samsung’s long-term commitment to providing innovation within the telecommunications industry.”
Samsung hasn’t crashed the party late, having previously launched the Galaxy 5S LTE+ and Galaxy S5 Broadband LT in 2014 that provided the fastest download speeds among available mobile phones. Having faced tough competition from rival smartphone-makers in terms of handset specs, Samsung now intends to reign supreme in data download speeds, unparalleled multimedia experience and content steaming genres.
