Here are all the phones that will support Verizon's Gigabit LTE network (Updated)
Verizon plans to light up its Gigabit Class LTE network in select markets in the United States during 2018. Although the carrier has yet to reveal the regions where its new network will be available starting this year, we do have a list of devices that will support Gigabit LTE.
If you've been following our Verizon-related news, then you probably know that a handful of smartphones have already been updated by the carrier with support for its Gigabit LTE network.
You'll most likely identify them in the list below, which contains all the smartphones that will be fully compatible with Gigabit LTE (256-QAM, 4x4 MiMO, 3-Carrier Aggregation).
UPDATE: After publishing the list of Verizon devices that are Gigabit LTE-ready, which was obtained from an official rep, we've been contacted by another Verizon official who said the carrier only sells the following smartphones compatible with the new standard:
- Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+
- Samsung Galaxy Note 8
- LG V30
- Moto Z2 Force
Obviously, that doesn't mean that other smartphones that Verizon sells won't be updated to support the new network. However, for the time being, these are the only ones that currently work on Verizon's Gigabit LTE network. I guess we'll report each time a new smartphone gets updated with support for Gigabit LTE.
