iPhone 5 to feature single chip LTE technology and 802.11n Wi-Fi support

Apple has just officially announced that the iPhone 5 will feature LTE and 802.11n Wi-Fi technology. Beyond that, it'll handle it all using a single chip set, making LTE less complicated and more compatible than ever before.

Besides adding LTE support, they've also added true HSPA+ along with DC-HSDPA. Apple has stated that the iPhone 5 will be able to blaze along at up to 150 Mbps which is incredibly fast.

Many carriers across North America and Europe will be supported by the new LTE and wireless chip in the iPhone 5. We'll update with official supported carrier information as soon as it's available.
