As if we require another chunk of evidence that the next generation iPhone will support LTE connectivity, here it is. According to well-placed sources speaking with The Korea Times, support for Long Term Evolution is coming next month with the 6th-gen iPhone's release.
"SK Telecom and KT are in talks to offer long-term evolution (LTE) connectivity on Apple’s next handset," the report reads. If sources close to the Korean carriers are correct, Apple is actively pursuing relationships and partnerships with appropriate carrier networks to bring the iPhone's LTE ambitions to fruition.
"KT is in negotiation with Apple to persuade the latter to support KT’s 1.8-gigahertz frequency in Korea for the upcoming iPhone,’’ one KT source told the Times while refusing to be publicly identified.
The company, which joined the race for LTE-enabled smartphones later rivals SK and LG, is trying to persuade Apple to have its new iPhone support LTE connectivity, according to KT officials.
