Apple has finally sent out the invites for a media event on September 10th, it will be unveiling the much awaited iPhones. A lot has been rumored about the company’s upcoming smartphones. The iPhone 5S will be one of two models that are expected to be unveiled. It probably won’t have any major design changes, it is only expected to come with major changes under the hood. LTE-Advanced support has been rumored a couple of times for iPhone 5S, an announcement today by Deutsche Telekom is seen as a hint by some towards this possibility.
A few months back it was said that Apple was having discussions with SK Telecom in South Korea. SK Telecom launched its LTE-A network earlier this year, Samsung’s “faster” Galaxy S4 became the first device to support it. The discussions were said to revolve around the possibility of iPhone 5S supporting the network. Deutsche Telekom launched its very own LTE-A network today and confirmed that Samsung will be offering a compatible version. The announcement mentioned that other manufacturers will offer compatible smartphones “at the end of September.” The iPhone 5S is expected to be released in September as well. This vague statement doesn’t actually say that the LTE-A capable iPhone 5S is going to be launched, but the rumor mill seems to be confirmed that its a hint. What do you think?
