The UK’s first Android smartphones with 4G LTE support have found their way to shops, now available to T-Mobile and Orange customers. These phones include the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE (4G version of the Galaxy S3), the HTC One XL (4G version of the One X), and the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE (4G version of the Ascend P1).
EE (known in the past as Everything Everywhere) will be launching its 4GEE network in a few weeks, which will be the first 4G network in the UK. Although EE’s 4GEE network will be coming in a matter of weeks, the network operator is yet to reveal pricing or release dates.
However, T-Mobile and Orange customers are in for a treat. If they do opt to get one of these 4G Android handsets, they will be given the option to switch to EE’s 4GEE network “as simple as possible”, according to EE.
Please take note that even if you did get your hands on one of these 4G handsets, you will not be able to connect to a 4G network not unless you make the switch to EE.
You might be tempted to get your hands on one of these handsets, but you might want to hold off until EE gives more information on how to make the switch to their 4GEE network.
EE will be adding another 4G-capable Android device on the 15th of October. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 LTE will be added to the list of 4G devices offered by the first 4G network in the UK. So you might want to wait for that.
Are you with either T-Mobile or Orange? Are you out to get your hands on a 4G Android handset, or are you waiting for more information from EE? Let us know through a comment on our Facebook page.
