Broadcom today announced a new processor/baseband combination chip called the BCM23550, which is meant for entry-level and high-end Android 4.2 Jelly Bean smartphones. The BCM23550 includes four 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A7 cores with ARM's Neon technology. The processor has what Broadcom calls VideoCore technology for more fluid graphics and 3D gaming. It can support dual 720p HD displays, including an external Miracast panel. It works with image sensors up to 12 megapixels and 1080p HD record and playback. As far as radios go, the BCM23550 offers an HSPA+ baseband capable of 21Mbps downloads and 5.8Mbps uploads. It also includes support for HD voice, and packages together GPS, GLONASS, NFC, 5G Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and indoor positioning. Last, the BCM23550 is power efficient and supports devices with dual SIM cards. The BCM23550 is currently sampling with production expected in the third quarter of 2013.

What, no LTE?

is that a mis print or is this chip really just HSPA+?
It's definately not LTE. Look at the speed spec - 21 Mbps down, 5 Mbps up. Those are HSPA+ speeds. If it was LTE it would be closer to 50Mbps down.
