T-Mobile 700MHz support coming to the Nexus 6, ZTE ZMAX and more
T-Mobile has been planning to roll out low-band 700MHz spectrum on a large scale for quite some time, even though support for the spectrum is scarce in many of the carrier’s flagship devices. That won’t be for long, though, as the carrier is planning to update quite a few devices in the coming months.
T-Mobile has a list of devices that will receive the update with 700MHz support, and it even gives handy timeframes for each device. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge are currently working on T-Mo’s 700MHz spectrum, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 and the Galaxy Tab S 10.5. Here are the four other Android devices getting the update in the months to come:
- Google Nexus 6 – Software update coming early 2015
- ZTE ZMAX – Software update coming 2015
- Samsung Galaxy Avant – Software update coming May 2015
- Sony Xperia Z3 – Software update coming May 2015
The lower frequency will help the carrier broaden 4G LTE coverage across the nation, as well as boost signal strength while indoors. So far, T-Mobile’s 700MHz support is only available in very select areas, but you can expect the carrier to roll out more support in the coming months.
