3GPP Release 14 support

  • I heard that a couple of improvements, including lower battery consumption, are part of the 3GPP release 14.
    Did I understand correctly? If so:

    • What are T-Mobile’s timelines on this release?
    • If current boards are bought with formal support for Release 13, can they be upgraded if the manufacturer delivers new firmware or are these changes also hardware related so new hardware is needed?

    Best regards,
