Who knew a device released only a few days ago would continue hold more surprises? Turns out the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 was hiding the necessary hardware for operating on Verizon Wireless’ upcoming 4G AWS LTE bands. Bloomberg revealed today that all it will take is a simple software update and the GS4 will be the first smartphone on Verizon’s network to take advantage of Verizon’s upcoming network upgrade.

Rollout is planned to start in major cities across the US over the next few months. Just remember, with great power comes great responsibility. What would you guys do with that kinda speed?
