ZTE shows off gigabit LTE phone, 5G base stations at MWC

Sunday 26 February 2017 | 17:30 CET | News
ZTE has unveiled the world's first smartphone supporting theoretical gigabit speeds on LTE networks. It uses ZTE's pre-5G technology and runs Qualcomm's latest top-end processor, the Snapdragon 835 with the X16 LTE modem. This incorporates 4x4 MIMO antenna technology and 256-QAM modulation to achieve LTE download speeds that are up to 10x faster than first-generation LTE devices. While ZTE demonstrated the phone in Barcelona, the company did not say when it expects to have such a device on the market.
