According to a new report cited by MacPost, a China Unicom Executive has confirmed that iPhone 5, that’s set to be announced next week, will indeed support 21 Mbps HSPA+ Technology, which is also known as “4G” technology. The executive confirmed this during a presentation at this week’s Macworld Asia.
Many Apple lovers were expecting the iPhone 5 to support the Verizon’s LTE 4G network that has started rolling on several devices. But rumors were stating that Apple will continue holding on the technology that was being used till now. This was being said because appropriate chips of acceptable size and power consumption weren’t available to meet Apple’s needs.
But now it seems like Apple has heard the voice of its customers. And if it comes true, then iPhone 5 users will see an significant boost in their network spped if they are living in a supported area.
China Unicom is Apple’s current carrier partner for iPhone in China. China Mobile and China Telecom are also working hard to secure the abilities to offer the device.
