Galaxy Note 4Samsung today announced a modified version of the Galaxy Note 4 that takes the company’s flagship handset to the Nth degree.

The new Note 4 supports LTE Advanced (LTE-A) Tri-Band Carrier Aggregation (CA), which can provide peak download speeds of 300Mbps once such networks are available. Samsung says the tri-band CA configuration can support three 20MHz channels or three 40MHz channels. Further, the new Note 4 supports LTE Category 9, which offers theoretical max download speeds of 450Mbps.

Current networks do not support such speeds, but some markets, such as South Korea, will offer faster LTE service beginning in 2015. None of the major U.S. carriers have yet announced plans to improve the speeds of their LTE networks to these levels. Samsung didn’t say when or where the new Note 4 will be sold.
