A few days ago we said it did not make sense to expect an iPhone 5 with a global LTE chip. After all with carriers around the world that support LTE sporting different radio bands and frequencies, it would not be possible to accomplish that with a single model – at least for the time being. That being said, it looks like Apple will be releasing three different versions of the iPhone 5 that will play nice with different LTE networks around the world. There will be a model specific for AT&T and Canadian carriers Bell and Rogers, a CDMA model for Sprint, Verizon and KDDI Japan, and a GSM LTE model for European markets, Asia and Softbank Japan. The list of support carriers can be found at Apple Insider’s website, so if you were planning on getting your hands on the iPhone 5 and were wondering if it would support the LTE network by your carrier, head on over to the source link below for the details!
