    So I have been doing some research about Samsung's new smartphone the Galaxy S4 and I found the US/UK version doesn't have an Octa-core processor, and the International version does not have 4G. I found that the Korean version of the phone has both an Octa-core processor and 4G.

    I'm from the UK and in the summer many networks will be launching a nationwide 4G network, but the version of the phone they are offering either does not include 4G (International version) or an Octa-core processor (US/UK version) so I'm looking to buy a Korean version of the phone which includes both. Is there a way I can do this and if so will it operate on UK networks such as O2, Three and EE? And am I able to unlock the phone?

    Any suggestions are appreciated, but PLEASE someone help me!

    Yours thankfully,

    I know the Korean version (SHV-E300K/S) is packed with Octa core and LTE.

    However I also know that the LTE in Korea is different from the rest of world. I'm quite sure that if you bring that set (unlocked) into any other country, you will only be able to use 3G.
