Industry sources from South Korea state that Samsung and LG are preparing new flagship smartphones, to coincide with the launch of a new high-speed LTE-A network in the country.
According to a report from GigaOm, AT&T has gone live with LTE-A carrier aggregation in several markets, making it the first major US carrier to offer such data speeds. But so far it doesn’t look like anyone has a handset that can make use of it.
By combining three distinct spectrum bands, two of Korea’s largest carriers will be able to offer LTE download speeds of up to 300Mbps by the end of the year.
When it comes to picking the fastest data carrier there are loads of choices, but perhaps the most important decision is deciding between a 4G or LTE.
An executive told the press that T-Mobile is preparing to roll out “LTE-Advanced features” by the end of 2013. Most likely, T-Mobile will enable just a few of the many technologies that make up the LTE-Advanced standard.
LG and Qualcomm officially announced that the follow up to the successful Optimus G, expected later this year, will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 SoC.
A benchmark has surfaced supposedly showing test results for a Galaxy S4 model packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Read on for more details!
At an event in London this morning, EE outlined its plans to double 4G download speeds and to begin testing its LTE Advanced network in the coming months.
LTE Advanced promises to boost your already fast LTE data speeds up to a theoretical 1Gbps, but how exactly does it work and when can we start using it?
Terms like 4G and LTE have been tossed around with abandon the past year or so. Every carrier is either touting their LTE network, or promising you’ll have it soon. LTE is definitely our future, but it’s not our present. We are on the brink of some really fast data transmission speeds, so let’s get to know our new friend LTE. Is it really the new Standard? More importantly, when will you get it?
