Teardown reveals previously unknown feature.

Google's LG-developed Nexus 4 apparently features a previously unknown 4G chip.

Repair experts iFixit found that the recently released smartphone features a Qualcomm WTR1605L Seven-Band 4G LTE chip situated on its motherboard. It also sports a Avago ACPM-7251 Quad-Band GSM/EDGE chip for 3G support.

Useless article. Petty much all mass produced mobile chips have all network types and bands supported, but just not the hardware to use them. Before BT was in every phone practically all phones actually had BT in the chip. But no antenna unless it was a BT phone.
