The Wall Street Journal has published an article in which it claims that the next generation iPhone will be compatible with "the fastest wireless networks in the world" and will be able to cope with LTE networks in Europe, the USA and Asia.
So far it's always been that because of the large differences in LTE mobile phones were tied to a market or region. However, by the chipsets it is now possible to use a LTE phone in different regions to use. Thus supports the international model of the Nokia Lumia 920 five-band LTE in a model.
Apple Inc.'s next iPhone will work on the fastest wireless networks around the world — including in the U.S., Europe and Asia — though it is unlikely to be available on every carrier, people familiar with the matter said.
A lot of rumors are circulating that the iPhone 5 will support LTE. Competing devices that are released in the U.S., supporting the 4G version of the iPad can also handle LTE but Apple has a lot of issues. The 4G feature was not on networks outside the U.S. because other frequencies are used. Through support for LTE networks clears Apple a significant competitive obstacle out of the way.
For all we know, that is
not everyone, 4G waiting for people who like to compare specifications of equipment, maybe decisive for whether or not to buy. Yet WSJ emphasizes that it is not going to work with all LTE networks in different countries. What is left out, is still unclear. Countries already operating LTE networks, include Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and South Korea.
In Australia, Apple ran against big problems, when it advertised the term 'iPad 4G ". The local Telstra 4G network operates on a different frequency, however, the iPad does not support it. It led to a lawsuit, Apple had all promotional material change and pay a fine. The iPad only supports frequencies of 700 MHz and 2100 MHz.
IDC analyst John Byrne estimate
s that there are 36 different LTE frequencies used worldwide. With 3G 'only' 22 frequencies. It enables the chip maker for a challenge.
Apple goes for the wireless features in the new iPhone 5, use the Qualcomm MDM9615 chip, which is suitable for more LTE frequencies than the chip currently used in the iPad. Other changes to the phone are suited to a larger battery and / or an energy efficient processor. LTE requires more energy than 3G networks. "It's like patchwork quilt in terms of spectrum," said Bill Davidson Qualcomm. "It will be impractical to have all of the bands." Apple would release several models to be able to cover all frequency bands, or should adopt a complex chipset with radio. Thus it may happen that Apple is the most interesting market.
Earlier it was based on British network plans concluded that the iPhone 4G will be supported but that claim is not well supported. In the United Kingdom 4G on the 1800 MHz frequency offered a frequency in many more countries outside the U.S. is used.
