No LTE update for T-Mobile's Nokia Lumia 810

No LTE update for T-Mobile's Nokia Lumia 810
Before T-Mobile turned the switch and launched its LTE service, the talk was that two handsets on its roster would each receive an update to become LTE enabled phones. The Samsung GALAXY Note IIdid get updated just a couple of days before the LTE service was switched on. But the other phone that was expected to do the same, the Nokia Lumia 810, is still just receiving HSPA+ 4G signals. And as it turns out, the model will not be getting LTE connectivity after all.

According to correspondence received from Randy Meyerson, Senior Director, Product Marketing at T-Mobile, despite the fact that the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 SoC  does have the capabilities to add LTE connectivity with a software update, the variant of the chip used in the Nokia Lumia 810 does not offer this feature.

This dovetails with a recent press release issued by the carrier in which the Nokia Lumia 810 was pointedly absent from a list of the carrier's 4G LTE devices. At this moment, T-Mobile offers two models with LTE connectivity, the Samsung GALAXY Note II and the BlackBerry Z10. On April 12th, a little ditty by the name of the Apple iPhone 5will be added to the operator's LTE enabled lineup. A version of the Samsung Galaxy S III for T-Mobile carrying LTE support has already visited the FCC and should soon be made available.

As for the Nokia Lumia 810, it sucks to hear this guys, but it will not be updated to LTE.
