Nanapho.jp has discovered Nokia’s diagnostic app secretly supports tests for LTE and CDMA.

The app contains entries for:
• LTE TX
• LTE Band Lock
• MMS

The LTE Band Lock feature can select the band used by the LTE hardware.  It has ‘Band 4’ and ‘Band 17’ settings which are the ones used by AT&T, suggesting Nokia’s LTE devices may come there first.

The app also has a page for CDMA MMS messaging, suggesting Nokia is also working on support for those carriers.

Nokia is rumoured to be releasing the Nokia Lumia 900 with LTE support for AT&T soon, and this discovery appears to support that rumour.
