Nowadays pretty much all flagship phones come with LTE support. It is a given. Heck, even low-end devices have LTE these days, giving customers on a budget access to faster internet. With that being said, it is safe to assume that the rumored Huawei Nexus will also feature LTE connectivity.
However what could be possible is that the LTE used in the Huawei Nexus could be global LTE, meaning that wherever you go, your phone should be able to hook onto various LTE networks from around the world. This is according to a report from BGR India who claims that a source has told them of the upcoming feature.
This is made possible thanks to the use of a single PCB for all bands. Apparently enabling global LTE is an expensive process, which is why most OEMs tend to select what bands they want their phones to support. However according to their source, “In order to save costs, manufacturers instead have different variants for different regions. However this is something only Google would do.”
It has also been suggested that this is one of the ways that Google could eventually bring their Project Fi service to other markets, especially if you have bought a Huawei Nexus meaning that you will be able to sign up for their service without any issues. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but how does the idea of a global LTE smartphone sound to you?
