Nokia India’s official website is claiming that the Lumia 920 that will launch in India will support as many as nine LTE bands! Spotted by Wmpoweruser, the official product page for the Lumia 920 lists support for LTE in the 700MHz, 800MHz, 850MHz, 900MHz, 1700MHz, 1800MHz, 1900MHz, 2100MHz and 2600MHz bands. If true, this would make the Lumia 920 the first smartphone in the world to support almost every major FD-LTE band that is being used globally. However, we believe that this is most likely to be an error on Nokia’s side. Also Read - Nokia PureBook X14 laptop with Intel Core i5 launched in India at Rs 59,990
The European version of the Lumia 920 supports five LTE bands, while the American version supports just three LTE bands. Another thing to note is that the Lumia 920 supports FD-LTE while Indian LTE carriers are utilizing TD-LTE, which are incompatible. Not to forget that the Indian carriers have LTE spectrum in the 2300MHz band, which is not supported by the Lumia 920 at all. Before you get your hopes up, we reckon that this is an error and the Lumia 920 won’t support all the nine FD-LTE bands and would certainly not have TD-LTE support for Indian carriers.
