Cape Town – LG Electronics successfully co-demonstrated Time Division-Long Term Evolution (TD-LTE) service at the Mobile World Congress in partnership with China Mobile.

TD-LTE is a telecommunications technology for 4G LTE networks that differs from the widely adopted Frequency Division-LTE (FD-LTE) technology.

China Mobile plans to roll out the TD-LTE network in the second half of this year. The demonstration at MWC 2013 was conducted using a modified Optimus G, LG’s flagship smartphone.

“TD-LTE has the potential to cover 2.7 billion people in Asia alone and today’s demonstration proves that this technology is ready for consumers,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

LG will roll out TD-LTE-capable smartphones in China in the second half of the year when China Mobile launches its TD-LTE service.
