    Thank you. This technical jargon about airwaves is way above my head. So my simple question is will I immediately benefit from all these new airwaves when they're lit up for use? I'm using a iPhone 6 from Verizon.

    Looks like the non Verizon ones do. The Verizon model looks like it only had bands 4 and 13.

    That's the info I found as well. Maybe a future update will enable it.

    If VZW owns band 2 in OKC, this would be an early market for this launch, I'd think. They are not currently using any PCS here, as Alltel was 850mhz only for EVDO/CDMA, and VZW never changed that. That should allow them to use any and all PCS they own here immediately.

    Even though they own 30MHz of PCS in OKC, they can only deploy 5MHz wide channels at the moment, as they lack the contiguity.
    They should really swap PCS spectrum with US Cellular which could instantly make their entire PCS spectrum holdings contiguous, and they could deploy 15MHz PCS LTE.

    I believe this would require FCC recerts.

    But that said, as far as I'm aware of, neither Note 4 Verizon (or any other U.S.) variant, nor Nexus 6 are Cat 6 devices. They're still Cat 4 devices with MDM9x25 baseband processor. Only specific market variants (Korean, EMEA) Note 4, LG G3, GS5 variants have been configured with Cat 6 MDM9x35 baseband processors.

    Because of the lack of immediate need for 300Mbps capable device in the U.S. and most European markets, and still a low yield rate of these 20nm baseband processors, our variants of these popular devices are configured with Qualcomm's "Fusion 4" combo, and since Korean operators (SK) have been offering 225Mbps capable service, their user devices are configured with "Fusion 4.5" combo.



    Nexus 6 is also paired with MDM9625 or Fusion 4. Sorry to break the bad news.

    Milan, as far as I know, the teardown of our variant of the note 4 is the 805 SoC with the MDM9x35 cat 6 modem. Once of the main reasons I upgraded my note 3 for the note 4 on AT&T.

    But the more I read into it, the more conflicting reports I'm seeing. I've read many sites where they report all the note 4 805 SoC's (except for in China) are Cat 6. While the Exynos is cat 4

    Do you mind posting tear down of a US Note 4 variant? I'm struggling to find a single one.
    Thanks man.

    Also, there are FCC filings.
    AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint are Cat 4, Sprint having a typo saying Cat 3.

    Verizon:


    AT&T:


    T-Mobile:


    Sprint:

    Most current Snapdragon-powered Android phones, including the Note 4, have the capability to support almost any LTE band you want, so long as you can root the phone. Presumably, when Verizon is good and ready, they'll recertify and push an update out to enable support of the appropriate bands; for one thing the Note 4 performed so well in most parts of the FCC testing that I can't imagine it flunking Band 2; if other phones are anything to go by, the Band 2 LTE rf and SAR performance should be very similar to the Band 2 (BC1 1900MHz) CDMA. As for those with the developer edition, or at such point as the retail version gets rooted, you should be able to do what you need to do.
