Modem and Connectivity

Perfect Mobile Connection
The Exynos 7872 processor features an LTE modem that supports Category 7 with 2CA(Carrier Aggregation) for 300Mbps downlink speed and Category 13 with 2CA for 150Mbps uplink speed for faster yet reliable mobile communication. The modem also supports almost every network of 2G, 3G and 4G such as CDMA, GSM, TD-SCDMA, WCDMA, LTE-FDD and LTE-TDD modes. For global location positioning coverage, the processor embeds a GNSS(Global Navigation Satellite System) receiver. Along with diverse connectivity technologies such as Wi-Fi and FM radio, the Exynos 7872 processor also integrates Bluetooth 4.2.
