LG Electronics LG-E985T Smartphone Debuts
LG-E985T Available Soon on China Mobile with Introduction of China’s 4G Service
LG Electronics (LG) announced that it will enter the biggest Time Division-Long Term Evolution (TD-LTE) market with the introduction of its LG-E985T smartphone through China Mobile starting from this week. China Mobile is the world’s largest mobile operator with nearly 750 million subscribers.
The LG-E985T is equipped with the speedy 1.7GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 600 processor, a long-lasting 2,940mAh battery and a superb 13MP camera. The LG-E985T will be one of the most advanced 4G smartphones in China Mobile’s 4G offerings. The 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD IPS display delivers a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 400ppi, for razor sharp images and a wide viewing angle. The LG-E985T supports dual modes ― TD-LTE and FDD-LTE ― for seamless connectivity to any network outside of China.
At last year’s Mobile World Congress, LG and China Mobile teamed up to demonstrate the viability of TD-LTE technology on LG’s Optimus G smartphone. Then in May 2013, LG introduced its first TD-LTE device through Saudi Telecom, one of the largest operator in the Arab states. Chinese authorities recently issued 4G licenses to operate TD-LTE networks to three domestic operators, including China Mobile. Currently, only TD-LTE networks are active in China, not the more common FD-LTE standard.
“LG is proud to be a participant in the introduction of the 4G era in the world’s largest mobile market with a partner such as China Mobile,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “We look forward to further strengthening our presence in China with competitive TD-LTE devices such as the LG-E985T.”
