Hi and thanks again for joining us. In this newsletter we’d like to share some of the other hardware details about our handset.
Supporting as many bands as possible
A lot of you have been asking us about which networks and bands our phone supports. We’ve managed to include support for most major global 2G/3G/LTE networks and bands, including legacy CDMA. This means our device will work with almost any carrier across Europe and North America. Here is a list of bands:
- GSM: 2, 3, 5, 8
- WCDMA: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8
- CDMA/EVDO: BC0, BC1
- TD-SCDMA: 34/39
- TDD-LTE: 38/39/40/41 (100mhz)
- FDD-LTE: 1, 2/25, 3, 4, 5/26, 7, 8, 12/17, 13, 20, 28
Including all these bands required complex engineering due to the number of metal parts in our handset (the slider) and the need to test radio performance with the slider both open and closed. We’ll consider releasing special regional versions in the future if your carrier isn’t supported with the global version.
