I remind you that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is coming pre-loaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean customized with Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz Nature UX interface.

Because of the LTE limitations of the Exynos 5 Octa chipset, the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9505 is currently being sold on the North American market, but the AT&T variant is codenamed i337. The smartphone comes with a 5-inch full HD display with Super AMOLED technology, while sporting 2 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB of internal storage.
