Apple is reportedly negotiating with South Korea’s SK Telecom to release an LTE-Advanced iPhone 5S in “the coming months” in South Korea. An SK Telecom official said the company approached Apple to include LTE-A technology. “We are in the middle of negotiations,” the official said. It’s unclear if Apple has plans to include LTE-A technology in all iPhone 5S models, and whether the approach to Apple—a company that has been hesitant to adopt regionally-available cellular technologies outside of the United States—will be successful.

it doesn’t matter whether apple will bring LTE-A with SK telecom because other android smart phones especially samsung G4, LG Vega are much popular in Korean environment. iphone can’t take advantage of it. why? there is no itunes store excepting app store. itunes is very important to use iphone. but it is almost useless in Korea. android phone is much easier, more popular. iphone 5s won’t be successful. do you know the sale of iphone 5 in Korea? it’s just terrible.
