The next-generation iPhone will support LTE 4G in multiple countries around the world, reports the Wall Street Journal. Citing sources familiar with Apple's plans, the Journal said that the iPhone will work on the LTE 4G networks of operators in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, though the Journal's sources didn't specify which network operators. The next iPhone will not support LTE across all bands in all countries, which is impractical from an engineering perspective (36 different spectrum bands are in use around the world for LTE). In the U.S., the two largest LTE networks, currently run by AT&T and Verizon Wireless, operate in the 700MHz band. Sprint is deploying LTE in the 1900MHz band, while T-Mobile will deploy LTE in the 1700MHz band. The Journal also reported that the next iPhone will have a "slightly larger screen." Apple has scheduled a press conference on September 12, where it is expected to reveal the new smartphone.
