HPUE in iPhone 7s/7s Plus/8?

Has there been rumors on Apple's next set of iPhones when it comes to taking advantage of some of the newer capabilities of Sprint's network? Are we going to see HPUE in this next batch of phones? I'm planning to upgrade once they release and was curious if there is anything out there.

 

Thanks.

It might happen but apple is always behind when it comes to networking

I've noticed no difference on B41 with HPUE.

Since Samsung has it likely Apple also will.

While I was on sprint with the gs8 I noticed no change from my iPhone 7 hpue might be one of those techs that flop

I've heard HPUE helps onto the upload longer. Since they changed the confirmation to 112 down 9 up I hope that is the case. Density, density, density.

Sprint definitely needs some more band 41 towers cause band 25/26 is way to slow for me and also volte will help big time as well

B25 only 5x5 in your area?

As we all know, everything is a rumor and speculation with Apple until it is released.  From items I have read, the 7S series will most likely not have ability to connect to HPUE.  With the high end iPhone that is rumored be released later, it may be HPUE capable but we will know when it hits the market.

That depends upon how you define "pretty soon."  FCC OET filings for Apple products do not go public until the day of their unveiling events.

 

No matter.  This thread is silly.  Have there been rumors?  Of course.  But rumors do not reveal any substantiated information.  Otherwise, they would be announcements or leaks, not rumors.

HPUE will make absolutely no difference with the downlink. However it will make a lot of difference when Sprint turns on VOLTE.

That's not exactly true. As I understand it, HPUE does affect the uplink but not in the manner you are describing. The device will be capable of uploading at a farther distance from the closest macro tower, thereby enabling said device to stay on band 41 for longer (up to 30% more distant than a non HPUE device). The uplink transmission power of the device is the limiting reagent in this equation.

 

This also means that average download speeds should also theoretically increase as the device remains on b41 longer.

 

Make sense?

I could well be incorrect with my logic but given that the iPhone 6 and 6S (and I assume the 7 has and the 7S will continue this trend) both had Band 41 EIRP levels that were >26dBm (HPUE Power Class 2), is it really a relevant point as to whether the iPhone 7S has or doesn't have HPUE?  It appears that the iPhone is already providing band 41 uplink performance that is superior to HPUE through positive antenna gain.

AJ, we need your expertise...

It does make since only real world used has deemed this "up to 30%" difference your talking about not noticeable from a non HPUE device.

I'm sorry but I'm not quite understanding what you're trying to say. Can you clarify?

Based on Sprint technology improvements and apple, as well as past projections...HPUE will most likely be in this batch of iPhones. My guess is iPhones 2018 will have 4CA since Sprint plans to launch 4CA end of the year/early next year.

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
