iPhone 5 4G LTE comes to Korea

Korean carriers said to be in negotiations with Apple about iPhone 5 4G LTE.

iPhone fans around the world are in high hopes that Apple will support 4G LTE in the new iPhone 5. A report from Korea is now supporting this hope as Korean carriers are reportedly talking 4G LTE with Apple.

The Korean Times reports that SK Telecom and KT are in talks with Apple to bring the iPhone 5 4G LTE to Korea. Korea has 8.4 million LTE users. That is a sizable target group. The problem with LTE is that different frequencies are used around the world. That is why the iPad 4G LTE is only usable in the United States. There is now a global LTE chip on the market. Let's hope Apple is using it in the upcoming new iPhone so 4G LTE can be used globally with the same iPhone.

What I would not like to see are different hardware versions of the iPhone 5 for different markets.

The new iPhone 5 is expected to be announced on September 12. The iPhone 5 sales are then to begin September 21. Rumored features of the new iPhone 5 include a larger screen, A6 CPU, iOS 6, small dock connector, 4G LTE and NFC. The overall design would not change dramatically, only the backside material is not glass anymore.
