LG reveals reason behind no LTE connectivity in Nexus 4
| by Aaron Almeida |
Over the past few days, the Internet has been abuzz with the news the LG manufactured Nexus 4 does indeed have an LTE chip. This was revealed when a stock Nexus 4 received the teardown treatment. This chip is actually redundant and in a response to TechRadar, an LG spokesperson has stated the reason for it being included in the handset.
Nexus 4 does not feature LTE to save on cost
LG states, “In order to provide the best possible specification for Nexus 4, LG utilized the same powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset as can be found in its 4G LTE product, namely LG Optimus G. This powerful chipset is only available with a combined processor and modem and cannot be implemented separately. The modem contains 4G LTE capabilities but is only effective when combined with other essential hardware parts such as a signal amplifier and filter in order for it to work. It therefore cannot be upgraded to 4G LTE capability through software.”

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
