Tell me about it.. I have been waiting for years!!

the problem with dual SIM and LTE is that the processing power required to decode the LTE signals is far grater than what we have today.
dont despair though! I just read that Mediatek is releasing a powerful 8core chip that can handle the processing load and that is Great news! I expect we will have something soon (Q3 2014)

ummmm.. definitely not!!

The phones you are talking about are single SIM.

The only dual SIM UE is the E1 DUAL and it's not LTE:

Trust me, there are no phones out in the market yet.
There's just no juice for LTE AND 3G dual SIM yet. I'm a telco engineer, it's my job!

I'm actually referring to their "dual" variant, the Xperia M2 Dual and Xperia T2 Ultra Dual. My mistake for missing that.

The reason I said they both support Dual SIM and LTE is based on the following announcements:-
http://blogs.sonymobile.com/press_re...-in-its-class/
http://developer.sonymobile.com/2014...entertainment/

Sony is not very clear with their announcements on whether the "dual" variant includes LTE or not but I did saw a few articles mentioning it:-

Actually the Xperia T2 Ultra Dual is not LTE:
http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_..._dual-5968.php
and the specsheet:
http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/...ications/#tabs

...and neither is the M2 Dual. Here's the Spec sheet for M2:
http://www-support-downloads.sonymob...ia_m2_dual.pdf

All the phone manufactures post these vague reports because the people who are creating the reports have no idea about the product specs. The LTE version is the single SIM model of these lines, the Dual Sim version only has WCDMA.

There are three main chip manufactures - Qualcom - Samsung - Mediatek. All smartphone companies carry either one of the three, or a variation of the Modem chip.
Currently, (read the first reply) there is no chip capable of handling LTE demodulation/MIMO. The processing requirements are too Damn High! (meme ref).

Mediatek though, is the first one who has announced that is building a chip that can handle the load. The Octa- Core MTK6592.

First mono-SIM phones are out already (THL-T100S)

DUAL SIM LTE Phones on the way:
