LG Says LTE on Nexus 4 Due to Combo-Chip from Qualcomm
...except it does
I guess the big question is whether the phone can receive dual spatial streams (2 receive antennas on at once), since technically you need that to be up to spec on LTE. So far, results are inconclusive as to whether this is the case. If not, LG is selling a phone that isn't compliant with the LTE standard, even though it will connect to towers just fine (albeit at half the download speed of a normal LTE device). However my bet is that the DC-HSPA+ capabilities built into the N4 are enough to allow diverse receive on LTE, so the device will run at full speed.
