Nexus 6P is One Step Closer to T-Mobile Band 12 LTE Support

Posted by Kellex November - 16 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

You have probably heard T-Mobile customers ask about band 12 (700MHz spectrum) LTE support for this or that phone over the past year. They talk about it a lot because it’s a huge deal in terms of connectivity on their phones, or at least will be once their phones get support for it and T-Mobile builds out band 12 in their frequently visited areas. You see, band 12 (or Extended Range LTE), at least according to T-Mobile, “reaches twice as far and is four times better in buildings,” two areas that T-Mobile has clearly needed help in over the years.

The problem with band 12 right now is that there are a couple of situations at play that need to be fulfilled in order for it to be used. First, T-Mobile has to build out band 12 support to an area. Second, you need a phone that can take advantage of it. As T-Mobile has continued to cover its subscriber base with band 12, its phone line-up is slowly coming on board as well. It hasn’t been a simple or straight-forward process, though, as phones like the Nexus 6P are still waiting for it. 

When originally announced, Google said that they were working with T-Mobile to get band 12 supported by the time the phone shipped. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. However, as of today (or at least within the last week), it looks like we are one step closer to that reality.

T-Mobile has built out a dedicated page on its website that lists the phones currently compatible with their Extended Range LTE. The Huawei Nexus 6P is now a part of the list. I was unsuccessful in seeing when the phone was added, but it appears to be a recent addition.

So now, the Nexus 6P is fully certified, if you will, for T-Mobile’s band 12, but the phone isn’t fully ready as far as we know. It will likely still take a software update from Google to enable. Thankfully, Google can be pretty quick with software updates if they want, since they send them directly to phones without much need for carrier interference.

Band 12 LTE is almost here, 6P owners.

On a related note, the LG Nexus 5X has not been listed yet by T-Mobile.

Qualcomm’s Reveals the Snapdragon 820 With Adreno 530 GPU, Quick Charge 3.0, More

Posted by Kellex November - 10 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

This morning, Qualcomm revealed the full details of its new flagship processor, the Snapdragon 820. With this latest mobile chipset, Qualcomm set out to create a technology that was “holistically designed around enriching visual quality and audio clarity.” That’s marketing speak for a powerful graphics processing unit (GPU), better image processing, and better audio out of a phone’s speakers. It also ups the game in terms of quick charging, has faster download/upload speeds than previous chipsets, and 2x the performance of the the Snapdragon 810.

Here is a bulleted shortlist of the new features:

  • X12 LTE Modem:  Offers 3x faster “peak” upload speeds and 33% faster “peak” download speeds when compared to the X10 LTE modem found in the Snapdragon 810 and 808. With LTE Cat 12 support, download speeds can reach 600Mbps, while Cat 13 upload speeds can rise to 150Mbps.
  • Adreno 530 GPU:  Offers a 40% improvement across the board over the Adreno 430, so we’re talking better graphics performance, computer capabilities, and power usage.
  • Kyro CPU and Hexagon 680 DSP:  Up to 2.2GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU that can realize 2x performance and efficiency over the CPU in the Snapdragon 810, along with a “significant” improvement in battery life. The Hexagon 680 DSP also allows for always-on, low power sensors and “ultra-low power advanced imaging.”
  • Quick Charge 3.0:  This new quick charging is 38% more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0 and 4x faster than “conventional” charging.
  • Spectra Camera ISP:  Supports up to 28MP capture, 14-bit image sensors, hybrid autofocus, and “multi-sensor fusion algorithms.”
  • Advanced WiFi:  Supports both 802.11ad and 802.11ac 2×2-MU-MIMO WiFi, which is 2x or 3x faster than 802.11ac WiFi without MU-MIMO.

Here is a quick comparison of the 820 to the 810 and 808.

T-Mobile intros 4G LTE CellSpot, your personal 4G LTE mini tower

Posted by wicked November - 3 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

T-Mobile brings Personalised 4G LTE Coverage to Un-carrier 7.0

T-Mobile is determined to make ‘Un-carrier 7.0′ reach more cities and be used by more Americans. In the US, the number of people covered by 4G LTE hit 300 million subscribers. The mobile carrier is very much in close competition with both the other top carriers. For the past months, T-Mobile has been introducing new promos, plans, and deals that are tempting enough if you’re not subscribed to this network.

A couple of weeks ago, T-Mobile brought back the #10Gigs4all promo for a limited time. It quickly followed the announcement about some devices getting Marshmallowed soon. Just last September, T-Mobile also expanded worldwide coverage to more countries and introduced the Lifetime Coverage Guarantee. There seems to be no stopping the company especially with the Un-carrier 7.0 as it launched the T-Mobile 4G LTE CellSpot that anyone can buy to set up at home, office, shop, or classroom. It’s your very own 4G LTE mini tower meant to be be used indoors up to 3,000 sq. feet (about 279 sq meters).

As expected, the outspoken CEO John Legere is confident about this one. He said, “The big difference between us and the carriers is that they’ll do absolutely everything they can to bleed you dry. We’ll do absolutely everything we can and use every proven technology available to give you the best coverage possible.”

This new product brings more personalization to Un-carrier 7.0 customers. If the Wi-Fi CellSpot Router is for WiFi connection, having a 4G LTE CellSpot doesn’t depend on a wireless network but more on cellular connection—specificallly 4G LTE. This means most services from T-Mobile are ready including HD voice and VoLTE. These features bring the best mobile LTE experience to anyone, aside from assuring that each 4G LTE CellSpot will provide the customers connection all the time. This is like the Wi-Fi CellSpot Router that was released last year but this one is 4G LTE -enabled.

T-Mobile 4G LTE CellSpot is available free for Simple Choice subscribers. If you depend on your 3G stick, it’s time to upgrade to this 4G LTE CellSpot. Unlike other carriers, you don’t have to pay for a new device.

Other Un-carrier products and services available include a Wi-Fi CellSpot Router and 4G LTE CellSpot Signal Booster. The 4G LTE CellSpot will be ready for purchase starting November 4, Wednesday, online or in select retail stores.

Gear S2 and Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE With NumberSync Available November 6 at AT&T

Posted by Kellex November - 2 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

November 6 is shaping up to be a big day for AT&T. Not only are they launching the HTC One A9 and Blackberry Priv, but they are also kicking off sales of two connected wearables, the Samsung Gear S2 and LG G Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE. These two watches will be the first to utilize AT&T’s NumberSync, a service that allows you to “keep your mobile number with you even if you phone isn’t.” 

The Gear S2, Samsung’s round smartwatch that runs Tizen and has a rotatable bezel (our hands-on), will cost $15 per month for 20 months ($0 down) or $199 with a 2-year contract. You can add service to it for $10 per month. The Gear S2 will be available in-store on November 20.

The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE (holy shit with the ridiculous name, LG), the massive LG watch that has a 570mAh battery and LTE connectivity (more here), will cost the same at $15 per month for 20 months or $199 with a 2-year agreement. The same $10 monthly service charge is also a part of the deal. The Watch Urbane LTE will be available in-store on November 13.

As a recap on NumberSync, this is AT&T’s new service that aims to sync all of your devices together. So with wearables, you can leave your primary phone at home, but stay connected through a connect wearable, almost as if it were your phone. You can text, receive calls, and do a variety of other tasks that would relate to your phone number without having your primary phone handy.

NumberSync will be available “first on the Samsung Gear S2, and then the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition in early 2016.”

Interested in either watch?

Sprint cutting off access to broadband internet for hundreds of thousands of people

Posted by wicked October - 16 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

sprint_logo_wall_signSprint has a bad PR storm brewing on its horizon thanks to its latest decision to cut off access to broadband internet that more than 300,000 people rely on. The details are a little more nuanced than that, but it’s still a really, really bad look for the carrier.

Mobile Citizen and Mobile Beacon are Education Broadband Services, or EBS, and they supply broadband service to tons of schools, libraries, and organizations across the country. They are nonprofit organizations that sell internet access for $10 per month to under-resourced sections of the country, making sure that as many people as possible have access to the internet wherever they are.

Now here’s for the complex part of the situation; Mobile Citizen and Mobile Beacon utilize Sprint’s WiMax network that they leased from Clearwire for 30 years back in 2006. Sprint purchased Clearwire in 2013, and they’re shutting down that WiMax network by November of this year. See the problem?

Mobile Citizen and Mobile Beacon have filed a lawsuit over Sprint cutting off access to that WiMax network, asking the carrier to fulfill the remaining 21 years of Clearwire’s contract. Sprint won’t allow them to transition over to their newer LTE network because of speed throttling, which is another painful sticking point for both parties involved.

Lawsuits are bad, but lawsuits aimed at companies that are taking things away from nonprofit organizations are even worse.

BOSTONOct. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The Sprint Corporation is planning to shut off broadband access to more than 300,000 vulnerable Americans next month, according to a lawsuit filed today in Massachusetts.

The lawsuit was filed in state court by nonprofit organizations that provide broadband service to under-resourced communities across the nation for just $10 a month.

Mobile Citizen and Mobile Beacon provide unlimited broadband service to 429 schools, 61 libraries and 1,820 nonprofit organizations across the country. But Sprint is planning to shut down the network these organizations rely on for Internet access by November 6, and has failed to provide the means to transition their community of schools, libraries and nonprofit organizations onto a new network.

“All Americans should have access to the Internet. That includes low-income Americans,” said John Schwartz, the founder and president of Mobile Citizen. “Sprint has publicly professed a commitment to closing the digital divide. It must stop this injustice and stand up for the hundreds of thousands of children, families, teachers and community members who will be shut out of the American dream if they don’t have access to the Internet.”

The nonprofit entities that created Mobile Citizen and Mobile Beacon are among the largest Educational Broadband Service (EBS) providers in the United States. EBS refers to spectrum the Federal Communications Commission reserved to serve the public interest by providing wireless broadband services in support of education. The nonprofits that make up Mobile Citizen and Mobile Beacon leased a portion of their spectrum to Clearwire for 30 years in 2006 in exchange for the ability to provide unlimited, high-speed broadband service to schools, libraries and nonprofit organizations across the United States.

Sprint purchased Clearwire in 2013, and has since announced it will shut down the WiMax network by November 6. It has made it impossible for Mobile Citizen and Mobile Beacon to migrate their schools, libraries and nonprofits over to Sprint’s LTE network because, among other things, it is throttling their Internet service.

“The long-term ripple effects of losing the Internet to our students would be immeasurable,” said Brian Blodgett, a teacher at West High School in Salt Lake City, one of 429 schools on the brink of losing Internet access. West has more than 2,500 students, 97 percent of whom are eligible for free or reduced lunch. “Students lacking access to the baseline educational benefits the Internet affords today could not compete to gain admission to colleges, therefore losing their ability to compete in the workplace.”

“We think of Internet access like we think about electricity, or desks,” said Brian Bolz, the CEO of Beehively, which provides technological support to Catholic schools across Northern California and is one of 1,820 nonprofits facing broadband loss. “We expect all three. You don’t come into school wondering if you’ll have enough power today, or worried that if you use too much power, you might run out. And you certainly don’t expect to reach a limit in how much you can use your desk. If you use it too much, is it possible you’ll come into school one day and find you no longer have access to it?”

Through their litigation, Mobile Citizen and Mobile Beacon are asking the court to require Sprint to fulfill its contractual obligations and prevent schools like West and nonprofits like Beehively from losing their Internet access. To read the full complaint, click here.

“Mobile Beacon and Mobile Citizen’s low cost Internet service helps fill in gaps that other low-cost offers don’t reach. Ours is one of the few programs available that not only serves students, but also low-income adults, seniors and the disabled,” said Katherine Messier, the managing director of Mobile Beacon. “We don’t believe providing a second-class Internet service or ‘slow lane’ is an acceptable means to close the digital divide. We’re fighting to prevent diminished service to schools and poor people now — and over the remaining 21 years of our contract.”

AT&T Launches 4G LTE in Mexico

Posted by Kellex October - 12 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

AT&T made it clear within the last year that it wants to take over the wireless scene in Mexico, it seems, after acquiring Iusacell and Nextel Mexico. To further that thought, the company announced that 40 million people in Mexico are now covered by its 4G LTE network. 

By using both Iusacell and Nextel networks, AT&T has not only added coverage to 40 million people, but they should see that number jumps to 75 million by the end of next year and 100 million by the end of 2018.

The following cities/areas in Mexico now have 4G LTE:

  • Atlacomulco, Estado de México
  • Cuernavaca, Morelos
  • Cuautla, Morelos
  • Pachuca, Hidalgo
  • Tepeji, Hidalgo
  • Tulancingo, Hidalgo

Samsung’s 18.5-inch Galaxy View tablet hits the FCC sporting AT&T branding

Posted by wicked October - 7 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

Samsung_Galaxy_View_AT&T_FCC (2)

Samsung’s mammoth 18.5-inch Galaxy View tablet has been spotted being put through its paces on GFXBench recently, and now a possible LTE variant has cleared the FCC sporting AT&T branding. This variant goes under the model number SM-T677A.

Samsung_Galaxy_View_AT&T_FCC (1)From the FCC listing, we can see that the Galaxy View could be sporting dual speakers on its rear,  the AT&T logo, along with the FCC certification. It’s anyone’s guess about what the two square items are between the speaks, or what the item is to the left of the FCC certification, although with a tablet this size, perhaps a kickstand of sorts? The Galaxy View is definitely not going to be the most portable tablet you’ve ever held.

Hardware-wise, the Galaxy View is believed to sport a mid-range level of hardware, which includes:

  • Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
  • 18.5-Inch display with 1980 x 1080 resolution
  • Exynos 7 octa-core processor @ 1.6GHz
  • Mali-T720 GPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB Internal storage
  • 2MP front camera
  • 5,700mAh battery

What do you think of the Galaxy View tablet? Does anyone else think the battery seems a little on the small side for such a monstrous tablet? Is the Galaxy View too big for normal people to use? Or is there a market for massive tablets like this? Personally, I could maybe see a use for the Galaxy View if there was an S Pen present. Maybe. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

LG Also Announces the Watch Urbane (2nd Edition) With LTE

Posted by Kellex October - 1 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

Along with the new LG V10, LG unwrapped a new smartwatch this evening called the Watch Urbane (2nd Edition). This watch is unique in that it’s the first Android Wear smartwatch to feature cellular connectivity, with an option to connect via 4G (LTE), 3G, WiFi or Bluetooth. Why anyone needs LTE on their watch is beyond me, but that’s where we are at in 2015. 

The watch itself sports upgraded specs over the previous generation Watch Urbane with 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400, 1.38-inch POLED display (480×480, 348ppi), 4GB storage, 768MB RAM, 570mAh battery, GPS, and IP67 dust and water resistance. That resolution and battery capacity are both kind of nuts for a watch. Good job there, LG.

Unfortunately, that giant battery means a watch that is a whopping 14.2mm thick. For reference, the new Moto 360, Huawei Watch, and original Urbane were all 11mm and under. 14.2mm is…woof that’s thick.

So why all of the cellular connectivity? Well, you can make calls with this Watch Urbane, supposedly leave your phone at home if you’d like, and also workout with GPS tracking.

The new Watch Urbane (2nd Edition) will be available at some point in the near future in the US and Korea. After that, it will head to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Press Release


Newest LG Watch Urbane is Tether-Free and Compatible with Both Android and iOS

SEOUL, Oct. 1, 2015 ― At the event to introduce the V10 smartphone, LG Electronics (LG) provided a sneak peek of the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, the first Android Wear device to feature cellular connectivity. With the option to connect via 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, LG’s newest wearable device works seamlessly with Android smartphones or can go it alone, when carrying a smartphone isn’t practical or convenient. Cellular enabled features will vary across Android and iOS.

The latest LG Watch Urbane delivers the highest resolution display of any smartwatch currently on the market today. With a resolution of 480 x 480, the new LG Watch Urbane delivers 348ppi on its 1.38-inch full circle P-OLED display. With a diameter of 44.5mm, the smartwatch resembles a classic timepiece with its hairline-etched stainless steel body and durable hypoallergenic TPSiV™ elastomer band. And to live up to the original LG Watch Urbane’s great battery life, the 2nd Edition features a high-capacity 570mAh battery and Power Saving Mode to last throughout the day and more.

Three buttons adorn the right side of the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition to provide quick access to shortcut settings such as contacts, LG Health and apps list. Ambient mode can now be enabled or disabled with a simple press of the crown button. In addition to the 16 included watch faces, fitness-related features such as heart rate tracking, workout tips and stress level monitoring are also offered.

“The wearable sector continues to evolve and we’re playing an active role in that by bringing to market various devices that appeal to various consumers,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “At LG, we don’t think there is a one-size-fits-all wearable device. This second edition of our Watch Urbane aims to be a must-have smart device for active individuals who want to stay connected to the world, whether they’re at work, at home or on the tennis court.”

T-Mobile states new Nexus phones won’t support band 12 LTE, at least at first

Posted by wicked September - 30 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

nexus 6p first look aa (17 of 23)

We are wrapping up Google announcement day and simply couldn’t close the cycle without some distress. This time the bearer of bad news is T-Mobile, which states the new Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P may not be supporting 4G LTE bands as much as everyone believes.

While the specs seem to show all relevant bands are supported, there’s a little hidden caveat with T-Mobile. Unlocked device manufacturers now have to block access to band 12 LTE or get certified for VoLTE. This is something Google, LG and Huawei apparently haven’t done with the new Nexus phones. Well… at least that is what T-Mobile’s Twitter account is saying.

As it turns out, the involved companies can still work on getting certification. Some smaller phone makers usually skip this, but it’s imperative that Google takes care of this. The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will be very important devices in the USA.

But why does T-Mobile have to do this? As it turns out there are very valid reasons to block non-certified Band 12 users. There seem to be areas where T-Mobile only has support for band 12 LTE. This would mean that even basic calls will need to use VoLTE, which is fine for many users, but remember things can get touchy if those phones can’t make emergency calls, which would be the case here.

nexus 5x first look aa (21 of 28)

But why not just switch to roaming in these band 12-only spots? There are complications for doing that. So much that T-Mobile would rather block Band 12 from these devices, sending them straight to roaming where other LTE frequencies are absent. It sure is bad news, but Google and company should have already taken care of this. We can assume they will at some point, it would be too big of a fail not to.

Who is thinking about using a Nexus phone on T-Mobile. Would this make a difference to you?

Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 to feature super fast LTE, powerful WiFi and smarter connectivity

Posted by wicked September - 15 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 AA

You all know how Qualcomm is! They like teasing us by letting information trickle out of their news room drop by drop. The Snapdragon 820 is to be their most high-end chipset and we want to know all about it, but they simply won’t divulge all the details soon enough! First they announced it and told us a bit about the Adreno 530 GPU. This was followed by a taste of the Hexagon 680 DSP and the introduction of the powerful Kryo CPU happened soon afterwards. What’s next?

Qualcomm swears the latest bit of information is the “final piece of the puzzle” (somehow I doubt that). Today’s announcement is all about connectivity, which is likely the most important part about our mobile devices.


LTE speeds

Of course, Qualcomm is not skimping out on its world-class high-end processor. When it comes to data speeds, the Snapdragon 820 is all set to take on the most demanding of tasks. For starters, it supports LTE Cat 12 download speeds of up to 600 Mbps. I am sure I don’t need to tell you that is a lot… but holy molly that’s a lot! That is over half a Gigabit, guys. Pretty crazy stuff. And upload speeds are not bad either, at 150 Mbps (LTE Cat 13).

But what Qualcomm is most excited about is its LTE-U ( LTE in Unlicensed). Qualcomm gives you the whole explanation at their blog, but the general hint is that this process allows network operators to install “small cells” in areas with high data demand. Supported devices can then take advantage of both the network towers and these WiFi router-sized antennas, aggregating the data and using it as a single, faster connection.

WiFi improvements

In addition to improved cellular data speeds, Qualcomm made sure to work hard on bringing better WiFi experiences to your super phones. The Snapdragon 820 supports 802.11ac 2×2 MU-MIMO, which can double or triple speeds in crowded networks. The chip also includes support for 802.11ad WiFi, giving smartphones the ability to handle multi-Gigabit speeds.

Connectivity – not just faster and stronger, but also smarter

Cellular and WiFi data are usually treated differently, but ultimately they serve the same purpose – transferring all those bits between your phone and the internet. The only issue is that sometimes these technologies don’t merge well in everyday usage, an issue Qualcomm is trying to solve with the Snapdragon 820.

This processor adds the ability to have the smart device choose between LTE and WiFi by first determining which offers the best connectivity. Qualcomm mentions this especially helps during WiFi calls, as the device can jump in and out of your home network to offer you the clearest sound possible. The platform also supports native HD video calls, which makes it possible to switch into a video call straight from a regular voice call.


Get ready for the Snapdragon 820!

I may not believe them, but Qualcomm swears today they wrap up their Snapdragon 820 details and have already told us enough. Are you convinced? Surely, the Snapdragon 820 is to be on the best of the best devices to come during the first half of 2016. You can be sure we will be all over those products when they come. For now let’s just sit tight and wait while Qualcomm and its partners do their thing!
