    iphone 12 bands

    Looks like the iPhone 12 and 12 pro will have the following capabilities. Is this good enough for full T-Mobile support? Will it have standalone 5G?

    It does say there will be a mode to preserve battery power by dumbing down to LTE when 5G is not needed for speed, but that you can also always set the phone to connect to 5g whenever it is available.

    5G NR (Bands n1, n2, n3, n5, n7, n8, n12, n20, n25, n28, n38, n40, n41, n66, n71, n77, n78, n79)
    5G NR mmWave (Bands n260, n261)
    FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 32, 66, 71)
    TD-LTE (Bands 34, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 46, 48)
    CDMA EV-DO Rev. A (800, 1900 MHz)
    UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz)
    GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    All models

    5G (sub‑6 GHz and mmWave)
    Gigabit LTE with 4x4 MIMO and LAA4
    Wi‑Fi 6 (802.11ax) with 2x2 MIMO
    Bluetooth 5.0 wireless technology
    Ultra Wideband chip for spatial awareness5
    NFC with reader mode
    Express Cards with power reserve

    Only Apple or T-Mobile will let us know about SA support (at least until it is tested in real life conditions), but as far as NSA, this appears to have all of T-Mobile's spectrum cake bands.

    Every band you could want across the entire line up. Impressive. All are 4x4 MIMO as well. No more compromising.

    Good luck with 5G SA. It is still a mystery for T-Mobile staff. They still go back and forth with LG on whether the Velvet 5G supports 5G SA, even though they posted a video of it with 5G SA dual carrier.

    I will say this.. if you're in a rural area - 5G SA is a good thing, as many of the sites in rural places are paper thin on B12/B71 LTE... which means, NSA requires connection to B66/B2. You'll be in/out of service for 5G/LTE often... or in areas that are B12/B71/5G .. you won't see 5G unless you have SA, which means ~5MHz of B12 or B71 typically.
