    There is a new leak out today of the Google Pixel 3 that shows it has the Snapdragon 845 which means it is likely to have Band 71.

    Huawei recently (7/30) submitted test results for their LX9 which covers a lot of LTE bands (e.g. 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 17, 38, 41) but which does not mention band 71. Someone called TCL Communications in Shenzhen submitted (8/1) specs for a band 71 phone (FCC ID #2ACCJH094).

    Will be interesting to see if apple with their latest iphones support band 71. If they do, I think that could be a huge lure for people to "futureproof" their phones somewhat.

    Hopefully the Pixel 3 will support B71, as that will be the first B71 phone for Project Fi. The Unlocked LG V35 and G7 models somehow didn't get it in their firmware, even though the hardware and T-Mobile firmware supports it.

    I saw an explicit list of bands for the Pixel 3 that includes Band 71.

    Would Apple dare to make such an out-of-date device this fall that doesn't include this band? I am doubting it now.

    Apple will have B71 now based upon their history. The band is in use and rolling out to more locations so they'll support it now. They just have never been the earliest out with a band and since they only do updates once a year, if it's not an established band, they'll skip it.

    It is possible, depending on how many models they have, that B71 might only be available on certain models sold through T-Mobile. There have been other bands in the past that weren't included in all models in the US.
    iPhone 11 is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Currently prepaid, though would consider postpaid on right plan.

    Usually anything they sell through T-mobile, they will sell directly from Apple as well as an unlocked device. The main issue at hand, is whether they'll be some iPhone with Band 71.

    I remember a few years ago when only the phone sold through ATT had Band (29?). It is possible that the SIM free model was this one, it has been several years.

    Generally, I would recommend buying the SIM free model if you can wait and don't require the phone at release. I went carrier route last year, but I bought through Best Buy so I had close to the SIM free model (Verizon/Sprint support if I go that route later). It just took 40 days or so until I could pay off the phone and unlock it. I'm still on ATT, just moved to Prepaid.

    It’s not really up to Apple to decide whether or not to support it. It’s up to the modem.

    I'm sure Apple's engineers issue what they want to the modem manufacturer for their new models. Look at this way. I think they cover the entire world with only three different models of an iphone:

    https://www.apple.com/iphone/LTE/

    So for a device to cover that many carriers in that many countries, Apple has a high degree of say in which bands they want in each model. They call the shots or they wouldn't be able to do it with so few versions of a device.
