China Mobile, the country's most active supporter of homegrown 4G TD-LTE technology, will for the first time exhibit at the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, the world's biggest trade show in the mobile industry, the company announced Monday, signaling the telecom titan's ambition to reclaim lost ground from its smaller rivals as China moves into the 4G era.

China Mobile is slated to showcase its latest TD-LTE push during its exhibitor debut at next week's MWC, Qiu Hong, an official with the carrier's department of market operation, told reporters in Beijing on Monday.

The debut came after China Mobile's recent moves to tout a faster 4G network at a time when the idea of 3G still remains something of a novelty for many Chinese users.

Not long after launching a dual-mode LTE network in Hong Kong in December, which couples the homegrown TD-LTE with the existing FDD-LTE technology, China Mobile announced commercial trials of TD-LTE networks in Hangzhou and Wenzhou at the beginning of February.

A few smartphone models that support TD-LTE will be unveiled by the carrier during the MWC, said Wang Hengjiang, deputy general manager of the terminal subsidiary of China Mobile.

The phones are likely to hit the shelves later this year, according to Wang.

This may especially help bump up market confidence in the commercial success of TD-LTE, as the lack of capable mobile devices has long been a concern hampering the technology's popularity.
