Nokia Lumia 920 won't support 4G in India

Out of the nine bands that Nokia Lumia 920 supports the Lumia 920 does not support 2300 on which Indian LTE network works.

Nokia's Lumia 920 smartphone, which was recently unveiled for the Indian market, won't support LTE (4G) network in India.

According to the Nokia India website, Lumia 920 will have support for nine different LTE bands starting right form LTE 700 going all the way up to LTE 2500. But sadly Indian LTE network which operates at 2300 MHz frequency is not out rightly supported by the Nokia Lumia 920.

So even after having penta-band LTE support, the Nokia Lumia 920 would not be able to utilise the present LTE network which is available in Pune, Kolkata and Bengaluru.

Indian LTE Network works on TDD (Time Division Duplex) network which presently is being utilised by China and India. Since the network format is not widely used, most device manufacturers do not have support for this technology and same goes for Nokia Lumia 920 too.

Nokia Lumia is meant to support FD (Frequency Division) LTE networks which are supported by most countries other than India and China. Till now, Huawei's Ascend P1 is the only smartphone, which has been announced for India, comes with support for TDD-LTE technology.
