According to official website of samsung india S5 doesnt support TDD-LTE 2300mhz band
So how can airtel offer 4G benifits over this device
See the link and open specs\


*Mostly its a error from the people at Samsung. If the device does not support LTE at 2300 mhz band then how will airtel be able to provide bundled 4G offers. It should support 4G at 2300 mhz band otherwise no use of it even launching in India.

It definately supports 2300mhz band of airtel4g. I have been using it.Its really not that great similar to 3g at time faster.

It might be a mistake. Because on the internet, I see that people are saying that S5 is supporting 4G of Airtel on 10 mbps speed. One guy got it for Rs. 43,500 from Airtel store.

Also, on news sites like , it seems the indian version will actually support 2300 and the upcoming 1800 too.


Htc One E8 finally on flipkart though dont support 4G LTE 2300mhz band
