Sprint today announced it'll debut the first smartphones to take advantage of Sprint Spark, a technology designed to achieve unprecedented speeds by combining three bands of 4G LTE wireless spectrum available to Sprint's network, on Friday, Nov. 8. Samsung Galaxy Mega and Samsung Galaxy S 4 mini launch on Nov. 8 and are expected to become tri-band enabled with a software update shortly after launch. LG G2 will also be available on Nov. 8 and is expected to become tri-band enabled with a software update in early 2014. HTC One max is coming soon.



Here are the details on the tri-band technology and the devices:

. LG G2 will be available beginning Friday, Nov. 8, for $199.99 with a new line or eligible upgrade and two-year service agreement or $22.92 per month with Sprint One Up (excluding taxes).

. Samsung Galaxy Mega will be available beginning Friday, Nov. 8, for $199.99 with a new line or eligible upgrade and two-year service agreement or $19.59 per month with Sprint One Up (excluding taxes).

These tri-band devices support active hand-off mode between 800MHz, 1.9GHz and 2.5GHz providing data session continuity as the devices move between spectrum bands. Sprint Spark provides the capacity to greatly improve the performance of video and other bandwidth-intensive applications, while also opening the way for futuristic applications. Today, wireless networks and smartphones can book flights, locate children, store photos and music, video chat and much more. Sprint Spark is designed to support a new generation of online gaming, virtual reality, advanced cloud services and other applications requiring very high bandwidth.
