    Which model's hardware is compatible with the following bands (FDD mode) for LTE (4G)?
    Band 1 (2100GHz)
    Band 3 (1800GHz)
    Band 8 (900GHz)
    Band 11 (1500GHz)
    Band 20 (800GHz)
    I'm using my phone with an Italian Vodafone SIM and a Japanese Softbank SIM.
    I don't care if the model that covers all these bands is sold by a particular carrier/locked/etc.
    Thank God it's an Android: I will root it and format everything before using it anyway.

    LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600 - N9005
    LTE 700 / 1900 / 2100 - N900W8

    So I guess the answer is none of them. They're missing 1500. So far, it looks like the S4 and S4 Mini are the only phones capable of FDD (and TDD).

    I found out that
    - MPN names refer to regional settings.
    - Each MPN can only have a maximum of 6 radios setup on that particular MPN firmware.
    - The N9005 CPU is LTE and is compatible with many bands, including those which I need (1, 3, 8 and 20).

    So, now, my new 2 questions are:

    1) which Samsung N9005 MPN has a radio setup that caters for bands 1, 3, 8 and 20?

    2) where can I download that particular MPN for my N9005?
