Default Xperia Tablet Z Variants

Hi,

I just wanted to create a place where all the Variants are listed for a better overview:

WLAN (Wi-Fi) only

SGP311 (16GB)
SGP312 (32GB)


GSM/HSPA+/LTE

SGP321 (16GB)
GSM: 850, 900. 1800, 1900
UMTS: 1, 5, 8
LTE: 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20

SGP331 ?

SGP341 (16GB)
GSM: 850, 900. 1800, 1900
UMTS: 2, 4, 5

SGP351 (16GB)
GSM: 850, 900. 1800, 1900
UMTS: 2, 4, 5
LTE: 4

SO-03E (32 GB)
GSM: 850, 900. 1800, 1900
UMTS: 1, 5, 6, 19
LTE: 1, 19 ,21


Additional information:
SGP341 and SGP351 are identical in hardware!!
So with a SGP351 FW on the SGP341 you can enable LTE band 4

SO-03E can be debranded with SGP321 Firmware - but the 32GB Memory will be formated as 16GB



Greetings

If there is a mistake or you have additional information - please let me know.
Thanks to all users below for providing additional information.

SGP341 is HSPA+ only (no LTE) 16GB.
Bands:
UMTS HSPA+ 850 (Band V), 900 (Band VIII), 1700 (Band IV), 1900 (Band II), 2100 (Band I) MHz
GSM GPRS/EDGE 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz

I'm looking for a white global LTE model (SGP321), but as far as I can see anywhere, only the 32GB wifi only comes in white (not interested in Docomo branded hardware.

If anyone has any links or reliable purchasing sources with worldwide shipping for this, please post.

The "SGP351" model number is for an HSPA/LTE variant that appears to be for T-Mobile USA. I am too new to post links but you can find a link to the FCC filing for the device, as well as SGP341, via TmoNews or Wireless Goodness.

Yes, I am keeping a close eye on this one.

The SO-03E (docomo version) only supports LTE bands 1/19/21
Currently with stock firmware at least anyway, maybe when developers get their hands on a modem files from the SGP321 the other bands might get unlocked, unless its a hardware restriction

Band support is hardware-limited. The only thing you can hope for in some cases is unlocking additional modes in already-supported bands (like Nexus 4 LTE support for 1700 MHz.)

Qualcomm's WTR RF frontends support nearly all bands in existence *but not simultaneously in a single device* - bandswitching and filters are unique to each device.

Take a look at the first diagram at http://www.anandtech.com/show/6541/t...05-and-mdm9x25 - the RFFE portion of that diagram differs between each device.
*so much sig updating needed*

My Github profile - Some Android stuff, some AVR stuff

An excellent post on "noobs vs. developers"

A few opinions on kernel development "good practices"

Note: I have chosen not to use XDA's "friends" feature - I will reject all incoming "friend" requests.

Well I knew that it was likely going to be hardware limited, but staying hopeful that unlocking of additional bands is possible later when more developers get their hands on the TZ.
Being able to use 4G would be a big plus, although I am still perfectly happy with my HSPA+

Wait a minute aint LTE suppose to be backward compatible? I.E should do 3g and HSPA+ ?? I mean I dont have to buy 4G sim just to use with SGP321...

I think you should also clarify which GSM and HSPA+ bands each device supports
SO-03E supports:

GSM: 850, 900. 1800, 1900
UMTS: 1, 5, 6, 19
LTE: 1, 19 ,21

this is from the service menu.

The SIM is the same. The enduser can turn the capability on and off depending which contract he has.
So from this case it is backward compatible.

But seen from the technical side it is not backward compatible, a handover is done between 3G and 4G.
3G/HSPA+ is WCDMA also known as UMTS
LTE is a OFDM modulation
So the technology is completely different
