    I think these ports are used for testing the phone during production in order to provide a direct signal to the phone and bypass any environmental factors that may affect the signal during testing.

    maybe theoretically can be used to connect an external antenna but not really designed to be used for that

    Yup - during production the port is used to test the phone's connectivity (via external antenna) and test signal.
