People were a little upset when Xiaomi announced the new Redmi range sans LTE, but rumours from sources claim that 4G enabled phones are heading to market very soon.

According to sources close to Xiaomi, the company have already applied for network licenses for 3 Android devices all of which boast 4G LTE support, and that these phones will all be from the Redmi range.

It is not unusual for Xiaomi to add features to midrange devices that are missing on their flagship models, the Mi2A launched with NFC for example while the Mi2S never had the feature.

To give the Redmi range LTE it is suggested that Xiaomi have gone for Mediatek processors including the current MT6582 and MT6592 with new LTE modems and even the still unreleased MT6595 processor. These new LTE Redmi phones are believed to go on sale in July, which also happens to be around the same time the first Mediatek powered Meizu will go on sale.
