Please contact us to discuss pricing Contact Us

Report Summary:

Global LTE handset shipments surged almost 1000% annually in Q2 2012. LTE is the mobile industry’s fastest growing technology, and one that no handset vendor, component maker or car manufacturer can afford to ignore. South Korea witnessed astonishing growth and surpassed the United States as the biggest LTE market worldwide. This is benefitting multiple 4G vendors with a solid presence in the country, such as Pantech, LG and Samsung. Apple is the only major brand without an LTE product portfolio in South Korea and it is at risk of looking like a laggard there.
