Q10

We’ve heard quite a lot about the specifications of the BlackBerry Q10 since January 30th, but one thing we haven’t heard much about is the mobile network bands. Now, however, a list of wireless bands supported by the various Q10 models has surfaced.

As with the Z10, there will be four different models of the Q10: SQN100-1, SQN100-2, SQN100-3, and SQN100-5 (possibly SQN100-4, we’re not sure if this is a typo made by the source). However, unlike the Z10, which comes in a model without LTE (STL100-1), all four models of the Q10 will have support for LTE. Moreover, all the GSM models can fallback onto HSPA+, 3G, and EDGE, while the SQN100-2 will serve as the CDMA model. Below is a more detailed list of wireless bands supported.

SQN100-1:

Quad band LTE 2,5,4,17
Tri Band HSPA+/UMTS 1, 2, 5/6
Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)

SQN100-2:

Dual band LTE 13, 4
Dual band CDMA 1xRTT/EVDO Rev A (800/1900 MHz)
Quad Band UMTS 1, 2, 5/6, 8

SQN100-3:

Penta Band LTE 3, 5, 7, 8, 20
Quad band HSPA+/UMTS 1, 2, 5/6, 8
Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800 MHz)

SQN100-5:

Quad Band LTE 2, 5, 4, 17
Quad band HSPA+/UMTS 1, 2, 4, 5/6
Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
