Superfast 4G version of LG G3 is inbound

LG-G3-design-looks-to-take-on-Galaxy-S5South Korea is a Mecca for next-generation mobile connectivity, offering citizens some of the fastest mobile networking standards often years before they turn up in the UK or anywhere else. And now LG has become the latest manufacturer to create a handset designed to handle cutting edge 4G, according to TechRadar.

The type of 4G in question is Category 6 LTE, which is about 10 times faster than the 4G we have in the UK. That means it can handle download speeds of up to 300Mbps, as long as smartphones are running the Snapdragon 805 chipset.

To cope with this LG is upgrading its G3 from the slightly slower 801 chipset and re-launching it in its native land, allowing it to compete with the Galaxy S5 LTE-A edition that Samsung announced recently.

Here in the UK it will probably be some time before Category 6 LTE is available, which might be seen as an issue by those who have a hankering for cutting edge mobile connectivity. But even making the upgrade from a 3G phone to a standard 4G handset available to British consumers will result in a marked speed improvement for those living in areas with good coverage.
