Key vendors leading the push into LTE phones will include HTC Corp (宏達電), Apple Inc, Samsung Electronics Co, LG Electronics Inc, Nokia Oyj, Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc, Pantech Co and Fujitsu Ltd, it added.

“The mobile industry is entering a breakout year for 4G LTE technology,” Strategy Analytics executive director Neil Mawston said in a report. “LTE has quickly become a high-growth, high-value market that no operator, service developer, device vendor or component maker can afford to ignore.”

However, because the LTE mobile phone segment will expand at a rapid rate this year, there will undoubtedly be growing pains in this early phase, Strategy Analytics said.
