Pfew! LTE for the European Nexus 7 is back on Google’s website
As long as it ends well, it’s all good, right?
Google never officially stated that the new Nexus 7 sold in Europe would support LTE connectivity. But given that all versions of the device are powered by the same LTE-capable Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC (which, by the way, is essentially a downclocked Snapdragon 600), it was widely assumed that users in UK, Germany, France, and other European countries would get to use their tablets with the speedy new standard.
Yesterday, we reported that Google silently removed any reference to LTE support for the European Nexus 7 (2013) from its website. The immediate speculation was that Google dropped LTE for the device or that the reference was a mistake in the first place.
But it appears that it was just a misunderstanding, because LTE support for the Euro Nexus 7 is again present on Google’s presentation site. Specifically, the device will support LTE in the following frequencies: 800/850/1700/1800/1900/2100/2600 MHz (Bands: 1/2/3/4/5/7/20).
We can only wonder what happened, but, at least for now, all is good in the world.
