Update +++ Unfortunately, nothing is yet to be seen over a month after the already shifted Release Date from A5VP or heard. Again an indication that you prefer but should not rely too highly cross-promises of smaller manufacturers.
Perhaps we even surprised Yezz or distributor Avenir Telecom in the next few weeks, but at the moment one has the impression that manufacturers and distributors have said goodbye to the claim that first phone for 2 SIM cards to bring that also to LTE Standard supports.
For those who do not want to buy in the near time a new smartphone anyway, here after the latest version of our report on this model. Newer information there seems to be no. Update End +++
Yezz shifts launch
After some extended wait time, it should be applicable in April: The first dual SIM phone with LTE support is Europe coming to market. As so often in the dual SIM segment, but this time none of the "established" manufacturer who incorporates the 4G technology as the first in a smart phone for 2 SIM cards.
Instead, it is in this country rather unknown producer Yezz which ensures that also in terms of mobile surfing speed dual SIM models using normal phones to catch up. So far, devices for a surfing speed of up to 42 Mbit / s the best dual SIM equipped while LTE theoretically allows up to 300 Mbit / s.
Yezz presentation at MWC 2014
At the world's largest trade fairs around the topic Phones, MWC (Mobile World Congress) from 24-26.02.2014, the 5.0 "large Android smartphone was Yezz Andy A5VP announced. Marketing is, however, not the manufacturer itself, but the French supplier Avenir Telecom,which is more recently partner of the manufacturer for Europe and Africa.
Fortunately, plans Avenir Telecom, the Andy A5VP introduce in Germany. Originally, the LTE dual SIM phone should it from about March 15 to be in the trade, now the launch for Europe has been corrected to "April". Whether it is directly available in Germany, was not clear.
The first facts Yezz Andy A5VP
Positive surprise: The A5VP comes with Android 4.3 - while the most smartphones in our dual SIM mobile test will be delivered even with the predecessors Android 4.1 or 4.2. How well the 5 "touch panel fails must later cleared an accurate test: currently is not even the exact resolution known. Overall, it seems you should simply expect a mid-Equipment for the announced price for 250 € without contract. The values of cameras and processor read well, at least on paper, but like everything else have yet to be tested. The predecessor model without LTE, Yezz Andy A5, for example in France is actually available for about the same price.
What should I look at LTE?
Especially you have to consider whether not only the own mobile operator (provider) ever LTE offers, but also whether their own contract is unlocked it. Because depending on the provider, the fast Internet via LTE has to be activated separately or partially reserve a paid option for it.Some prepaid providers have also announced not to release LTE for new prepaid cards.
Who's Avenir Telecon - and when the final information come to the phone?
Avenir itself is originally and primarily an accessory dealer who to OXO covers results of chargers all kinds of accessories. Recently there has been the provider of Marseille (where, incidentally, also the dual SIM manufacturer Wiko has its headquarters) a Distritubutionsabkommen with Yezz closed so now tablets and smartphones, many of which are with dual SIM function, the range of products. Marketing for Germany lacked it so far, however.
During the MWC Avenir Telecom showed its stand in Hall 5, 5C51, and there is also a live demo. Since then the provider has given some more precise details are known. The information below is updated accordingly at the current level of information.
