World phone LTE compatibility in sight?


Recommended Posts

I was originally planning a big article-size post about band class redundancy and standardization, but hands started cramping :D


This is the HTC Raider 4G for SK Telecom in South Korea.



This SK Telecom LTE device uses LTE Band Class 5.


Sprint, for their 800MHz, is using Band Class 26. Class 26 is Class 5 extended for ESMR frequencies.

Maybe if SK starts using Band Class 26 in their devices, maybe it can be the beginning of cross-carrier LTE devices?

I look forward to it. Its one of the topics I was hoping to read, since The Photon is the only world Sprint Android phone, but that's WiMax. I'm curious about the possibilities of a LTE world phone on Sprint.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now -- should hopefully resolve the issue with the new NR NSA band display missing on some devices. To clarify, this new field will only appear if the NR frequency is identified (i.e. the app is showing "5G-NR 2500"). If the frequency is not displayed, that means it is not available.. this information is not widely reported on NSA connections yet, although it is becoming more common. @chamb your S22 was not reporting the information at the time of your report, that is why you are not seeing it.
    • Sprint eNB 5777 -> T-Mobile eNB 219211 Located at 40.598077070553046, -74.06554695233527 I actually passed by this site last summer when I was searching for Staten Island keep sites and at the time it wasn't broadcasting the keep PLMN. 
    • March 1st Play Store update appears to be out for our device (not sure when it came out).
    • Mike, i sent you a screen shot of my S22 not displaying the band or site note or the neighbor list as I see on your example.
    • Hmmm interesting.. it's working on my Pixel 7 and A32, you should see something similar to below. I will add some extra logging and get another update out tonight.
