676 million 4G LTE mobile phones to be shipped next year

There’ll be 676 million 4G LTE handsets shipped worldwide in 2015, according to new figures from ABI Research. That’s an increase of 204 million units from this year.

This will push the total number of LTE-connected devices to over 1.89 billion units by the end of 2019.

It’s also estimated there’ll be 350 commercial LTE networks in operation by the end of 2014.

Jake Saunders, Vice President and Practice Director for 4G/5G at ABI Research, said “While commercial devices supporting FDD/TDD carrier aggregation will only debut in 2015, this has not deterred global operators like Vodafone from rolling out LTE-Advanced technology using carrier aggregation to supplement its existing LTE mobile services.”
