LG, Samsung, Apple To Release New LTE-A-compatible Handsets
LG Electronics, Apple and Samsung Elctrnics are expected to released new smartphones this year compatible with the faster LTE-A networks.
LTE-A is faster mobile network scheduled to start later this month in South Korea, by SK Telecom, LG Uplus and KT. The new service can theoretically transmit 225 megabits per second.
The premium Galaxy S5 and LG G3 devices do not support the new mobile system, so martphone makers are set to release an upgraded version of their products starting later this month.
Samsung Electronics is reportedly preparing for the latest model known as the "Galaxy S5 Prime," less than three months after rolling out its Galaxy S5.
The new model, which is expected to come within this month, will have an ultra high-definition (UHD) display as well as a processor that supports the broadband LTE-A network, an industry source told the Korea Times.
LG Electronics is also arranging a new handset for the broadband LTE-A network, an upgrade to its latest G3 smartphone.
The devices will most probably be based on the Snap Dragon 805 SOC, which supports the new technology.
Apple is also likely to release in the latter half of this year an improved next-generation iPhone to support the transmission up to 300 megabits per second.
