I use lumia 1520. Last week i had an update and from that on i am able to see 4G in the "highest connection speed".

avikas, 20 Jul 20154G what about lumia 730.Lumia 735, 730 DS and even 830 uses same SoC. So it should support 4G, BTW Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 8926 has integrated 4G modem so all Lumia phones with that SoC has 4G capabilities built in. However OS update is required for 730 as well, we have to wait for official OTA update from Microsoft, no other go!
Yes, i can see 4G option in "Highest Connection Speed" after the latest update in Lumia 830.
What about lumia 820. this phone has 4g lte connection. what about the update.

I use a Lumia 638 which was marketted in india as india's cheapest 4g handset,but it has no option to enable 4g and has not yet recieved an update to enable the same

So no 4G/LTE Band 40(2300), means this cannot work with most of Airtel 4G networks and also upcoming RJio's network. But Chennai/TN folks might be lucky as I read somewhere Airtel's 4G/LTE is offered on Band 3(1800).
Similarly 1320 offered in India is RM-994(Global Version) with 4G/LTE Bands-3(1800), 7(2600) & 20(800).
I feel Microsoft simply unlocked the 4G/LTE feature by this update, which was locked earlier.
In case of 640XLDual Sim(RM-1067), it is being sold that after this update, it will be 4G/LTE enabled(equivalent to 640 XL LTE Dual SIM RM-1096).
Now this is confusing is LTE purely software driven or hardware/software driven. Any comments on this please.
Its not microsofts problem if the indian carriers only support 2300mhz for LTE.
I've Seen it. I have L 1320 and got that 4G option. Apart from that nothing seems to be changed except some bug squashing firmware about restarting issues found on some lumias.
How does this help?
Lumia 1020 doesn't support 2300 MHz, which is the channel 4G works on in India.
