There will be multiple variants of the Galaxy S4 depending on market but the Australian model will be 4G LTE compatible. It will support the fastest download speeds available, up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps).
The HTC One on the other hand is powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, has either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory and comes with 2GB of RAM. Unfortunately, there is no microSD card slot, which means you can't expand the memory. The One is also a 4G compatible device.
Samsung will officially launch the Galaxy S4 in Australia on Tuesday 23 April, but there's been no confirmation of exactly when it will go on sale. HTC has already confirmed that all major Australian telcos - Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Virgin Mobile - will begin selling the One from Tuesday 23 April.
