Samsung develops LTE phone chipset, will demo it at MWC 2009

Apart from lots of interesting handsets (like the S8300 Ultra Touch), Samsung will also showcase its first LTE chipset at MWC 2009.

Said chipset, made for “mobile phones and data cards”, is the second LTE one to come from a South Korean company, after LG announced its own, back in December 2008.

During MWC, Samsung plans to demonstrate (on a smartphone using the new LTE chip) Internet telephony and video-on-demand (VOD) services that are based on the 3GPP LTE Rel-8 standard.


There are no other details about this at the moment. However, it’s worth mentioning that Samsung readies new Mobile WiMAX solutions, as well as new mobile Internet devices (MIDs), for presenting at MWC too.
