Top 10 4G LTE Chinese phones, with details of U.S carrier support!
Below you will find the details of 10 4G LTE phones which are either available in China, launching soon or have been confirmed to get 4G LTE compatibility in the coming months!
- U.S 4G LTE support: Yes.
- U.S Launch: Yes, later this year.
- Specifications: Other than 4G LTE nothing confirmed at this time.

2014 is looking to be Meizu’s year. The company have come back strong after the Chinese New Year with news of investments, a restructure of the company to make it more aggressive, and confirmed details that they will launch their next flagship phone in China, U.S and Europe!
The next generation Meizu MX4G likely won’t be launched until September, but already company executive Jack Wong is speaking loudly about his new baby, which will likely have a couple of younger brothers!
Apparently there could be a possibility of 3 4G LTE equipped new Meizu phones, and even a chance that the current Meizu MX3 will be updated with a Snapdragon 800 processor and also get 4G LTE compatibility. At this time though all we know is that the MX4G Pro, MX4G and MX4G Mini are in the works, but our sources say that at least one of the phones will be a Mediatek device aimed at the entry-level buyer for both China and abroad!

The much talked about Oppo Find 7 will launch in Beijing next month. The phone is confirmed to get 4G LTE support, a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 QHD display with a super tough coating and ultra sensitivity, but the rest of the hardware is unconfirmed. Recent news is that they will be 2 versions of the Oppo Find 7 the aforementioned 2K model and a mid-range version with a 1080p display (to replace the Find 5).
Rumours and leaks state the Oppo Find 7 will ship with Android 4.3, with the chance of a CyanogenMod version, 16 mega-pixel camera, Snapdragon 800-805 processor, 3GB RAM and a new faster charging solution.
One Plus One
- U.S 4G LTE support: Yes, 4G LTE bands 1/3/4/7/17/38/39/40/41 (no Sprint of Verizon support).
- U.S Launch: Yes, available online.
- Specifications: 4G LTE confirmed, custom CyanogenMod OS.
The One Plus One is the most mysterious phone on the list and although very few have seen it (myself included) we know very little about the hardware. What is confirmed is that the phone will have 4G LTE for the above 9 categories, we also know that OnePlus are committed to launching a phone which will be a no compromise device at a great price. We can’t say much more about the phone or design without spilling the beans, but the model we saw came in a bright colour, so colour options are a possibility.
