Apple is in Talks with SKT to Launch iPhone 5S LTE-A Version

Apple Inc. and SK Telecom are in advance talks to launch an LTE-A version of iPhone 5S. Apple's biggest rival Samsung has already launched Galaxy S4 LTE-A last week. Will Apple do it or not?

Apple Inc. is reportedly in negotiations with Korean company SK Telecom to launch its LTE-Advanced version of iPhone 5S smartphone. LTE-A is an upgraded and faster version of LTE (long-term evolution). SKT executive told The Korea Times that "SK Telecom is approaching Apple to put our LTE-A technology on the upcoming iPhone 5S. We are in the middle of negotiations. There’s no reason for Apple not to use the LTE-A technology"

Samsung is Apple's biggest competitor and it has just launched its Galaxy S4 LTE-A version smartphone last week on Thursday. LTE-A is the latest high speed technology and major wireless carrier network companies are now moving towards KT and LG Uplus to launch their LTE-A devices. Hence the LTE-A networks will see a major compete ion in tech industry. Apple cannot oversee the increasing demand of LTE-A. An unnamed source also told Korea Times that Apple can release i-devices having Snapdragon 800 processor of Qualcomm technology without wasting time. And according to same source, "This is a win-win strategy. With the help of Apple, SK Telecom can take a lead in the race for LTE-A devices and Apple can seek breakthroughs in its stalling phone business". But Apple can also use its own A-Series processors to launch its iPhone 5S LTE-A version despite of using Qualcomm modems.

Whatever processor will be used, it is good news to have an Apple's LTE-A based iPhone 5S device.
