iPhone 5 To Have 21MB/s HSPA+ 4G Technology

Japanese blog Macotakara reports (via MacPost) that a China Unicom executive apparently confirmed during a presentation at this week's Macworld Asia that the "iPhone 5" set to be announced next week will indeed support HSPA+ "4G" technology, offering a maximum theoretical data speed of 21 Mbps. A slide showing the information was photographed by Japanese site PC Watch.

Japanese IT news site "PC Watch" tells that, Research vice president of China Unicom, Huan Wenliang, told iPhone 5 will support W-CDMA based high-speed data transfer standard HSPA Evolution "HSPA+" (21Mbps) at keynote speech in Macworld Asia 2011.

Many had been hoping that the next iPhone would support the even faster LTE standard that has begun rolling out on a number of carriers, but rumors have consistently suggested that Apple will hold back on supporting the technology until appropriate chips of acceptable size and power consumption are available to meet Apple's needs. Apple has historically been conservative in adopting the latest cellular network technologies, having elected to release the original iPhone as an EDGE-only device even as many carriers were already rolling out 3G technology.

Claims of the iPhone 5 supporting HSPA+ surfaced earlier this year, with many noting that the move would result in a significant network speed difference between AT&T and Verizon/Sprint customers in the United States. AT&T has rolled out the intermediary HSPA+ technology as a bridge to LTE, and has been calling HSPA+ "4G" in its marketing. Existing iPhone 4 owners upgrading should be able to see a speed boost if they live in a supported area.

Qualcomm's world-mode MDM6600 chip found in the CDMA iPhone 4 already supports 14.4 Mbps HSPA+, but the device itself is limited to CDMA networks.

China Unicom is Apple's current carrier partner for the iPhone in China, although China Mobile and China Telecom are also working hard to secure the ability to offer the device.

Y would they get mad especially when everybody and there momma knows that apple is going to put 4g on their iphone. The real question is which 4g tech they are planning to use. Lte, or hspa+.

many quality sources confirmed that apple wouldnt have 4g until 2012 ALL YEAR LONG

im already debating whether to cop the iphone 5 this year, and skip the first 4g, but if this is 4g, im def. copping
No most source says that the lte version of iphone is coming out in 2012.

The article pretty much says they're still working on making the new phones LTE compatible, so I don't see that happeing until next year either. What I know for sure, is on the day it drops I'mma be headed to the Apple/AT&T spot like...

Especially the ones thinking the few rumors about the specs they've heard were all the new phone would offer. Those who thought they knew what they were talking about when they said Apple would only release a 4S this year will avoid this thread too.

My preference is to put my money towards products that have been in the making for a year, rather than products that come out every month. I don't really give a sh*t what you do though...keep buying the cheap sh*t, to each is own.

It's a personal preference. I would definitely consider a WP7 over any Android device provided I liked the build and they had the Apps that I used all the time. Right now they don't so I keep copping iPhones.

Apple wont make a LTE version till most of the country has it. Did the same thing with the 3g phone.

4G is not even everywhere

I have the iphone 4, and my sh*t loads web pages way faster than my friends Evo on 4G

Not really caught up in the 4G hype
