HTC One SV goes through FCC, hints at U.S. release with 4G LTE
Were you disappointed when you first found out that the 4G LTE-enabled HTC One SV was only going to become available exclusively through EE in the UK? It was fairly disappointing news indeed, especially for those who were enticed by the HTC One S but saw the lack of built-in 4G LTE connectivity as a major deal breaker.
Sure, it may be headed to Australia, but what about all those people looking forward to its release in the U.S.? Well, thanks to documents posted recently on the website of the FCC, it looks like it might be up for a U.S. release after all.
Evidently, it has already received FCC approval. It has been approved for use with GSM bands 850 and 1900 as well as WCDMA bands II and V. It also includes other wireless features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC, according to the documents posted on the web site of the FCC. Strangely, the documents don’t mention anything about it being approved for use with LTE.
So it looks like it’s all set for launch in the U.S., though its LTE capabilities are in question. Will people buy it without 4G LTE? Would you? Post your thoughts down below.
