New iPhone with 4G (TD-LTE) support confirmed for China?

According to China Mobile’s president, the next new iPhone to be introduced in China will have support for TD-LTE.

Reportedly, China Mobile and Apple have already reached and agreement about this – although the new LTE-capable iPhone will most likely be available to Chinese customers only sometime in 2012.

Since TD-LTE is not really different from standard LTE, the same chip inside a handset “can access both networks.” Thus, we should expect Apple to launch LTE iPhones outside China, too – later this year, or maybe in 2012. Of course, this wouldn’t be a surprise at all, since Verizon already offers LTE services, and AT&T should have its own LTE up and running before the end of 2011.

Expected to be announced in September, Apple’s fifth-generation smartphone may be called iPhone 4GS. It should come with a larger display, a dual-core processor, and an 8MP camera. And now it looks like it will have LTE capabilities, too.

    The new iPhone is the iPhone 3G S. Not the iPhone 4G. Right now, 4G networks haven’t been done yet.
