Technology giant Microsoft has started rolling out a new over-the-air (OTA) update, which makes 4G services operational on multiple Lumia smartphones in India, where 4G LTE networks are still not as popular.
According to a WMPowerUser report, users of the following Lumia smartphones are eligible for the new update which as of now supports only the FDD-LTE (1,800 MHz) band:
Microsoft Lumia 625, Microsoft Lumia 830, Microsoft Lumia 920, Microsoft Lumia 925, Microsoft Lumia 930, Microsoft Lumia 1320 and Microsoft Lumia 1520.
Users of these devices can navigate to Settings and verify whether 4G connectivity is enabled by their wireless service providers.
As per a GSMArena report, users of Microsoft Lumia 1020 and Microsoft Lumia 735 can also check their device for the newer OTA notification representing the 4G-enabling software update.
While users of the above mentioned devices outside India may have already received the 4G LTE support, in India there is a drawback as the upgrade supports FDD-LTE Band 3 rather than TDD-LTE Band 40, because of hardware limitations.
