The good folks at iFixit have just posted their teardown of the newly released Nexus 4 and have found its repairability level to be 7/10—which is nice. But past the news of how easy the device will be to fix when you drop it, iFixit has better news: a 4G LTE chip is on board, which a feature Google made clear wasn’t included on the device. The chip found is a Qualcomm WTR1605L. It is a chip that supports every LTE network worldwide. However, as Android Police noted, we may be stuck with HSPA+, because no 4G LTE antenna or amplifier was found. It could just be a dead chip stolen from the LG Optimus G—a phone that supports LTE.
