2600mhz LTE phones?

Hey so far the only phones I've found the be 2600mhz or "lte max" are the GS4 and MAYBE the moto x but not sure yet, anyone know any more phones that would work on the new faster lte networks?

Most of them will be phones that Rogers carries as they have a pretty large scale deployment of LTE in the 2600mhz band. Bell might start carrying more devices with that band if they start rolling out more 2600mhz sites.

A few Latin American carriers also use 2600mhz as well, but I'm not sure if it's the exact same flavour that Rogers and Bell are using.

The Q10 also does LTE in 2600.

Most LTE flagship phone and high midrange from this year support LTE 2600MHz, it's used by some Asian carriers as well.

I know the Sony Xperia Z/ZL/Z1 all have it on their LTE modems.

I believe the new iPhones 5C and 5S also have 2100 and 2600 support now.

None of the models that will ship in North America support 2600.

Most should but sometimes they are firmware restricted. I know with the Xperia Z, you had to flash the ZL firmware on to it to get 2600Mhz LTE access.

Hmm Guspaz seems to be right, for w/e reason, the NA iPhone 5S (A1533) doesn't support LTE Band 7 (2600) but does support Band 3 (1700). The Asia iPhone 5S will though, at least where networks use WCDMA instead of GSM for voice service.

JF said it had something to do with AT&T/Verizon influence.
