The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a seasoned smartphone now, having been available in the market for close to six months. This smartphone is often compared with all the new flagships that are announced and with good reason. However, if there’s one area where the newer flagships dominate the Galaxy S4, it’s with regards to the chipset on board. And that limitation has been taken care of now with Samsung launching a Snapdragon 800 variant of the Galaxy S4 in France.
This new variant of the smartphone is known as the Galaxy S4 Advance and can be bought via local carrier Orange in the region. There’s no word on whether this variant will make its way to other parts of the world, but Germany has such a variant already, so Samsung might soon launch it in other countries as well. The carrier is charging €689.90 for the smartphone off contract, which is about $940 in American currency. So it’s clear that Samsung is charging a premium for just the new chipset inside. And knowing what Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chip brings to the table, it’s certainly not a small change.
