Posted by at 5:05 pm on March 30, 2017

Samsung and Qualcomm said the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be the first handsets to ship with Gigabit LTE capabilities.

The high-speed data connection is possible thanks in part to the Snapdragon 835 processor and accompanying X16 LTE modem. Together with Qualcomm’s TruSignal adaptive antenna tuning technology, 4×4 MIMO, carrier aggregation and 256 QAM, the S8 and S8+ will feature the fastest-possible cellular data speeds.

AT&T and T-Mobile said the S8 will be able to take advantage of these higher speeds on their pre-5G networks later this year. Sprint, also indicated that its variant of the phone will support HPUE for better 2.5 GHz LTE performance.
