Abstract

This article presents a dual-band 12-designed to operate at LTE 42 and LTE 43 bands ranging from 3400-3600 MHz and 3600-3800 MHz respectively. The impact on the antenna parameters due to the user's hand is also explored. The isolation between antenna elements is better than 14.8 dB with a total efficiency of more than 74%. A small envelope correlation coefficient less than 0.05 and the channel capacity of 61.9 bps/Hz make the proposed array a viable solution for 5G smartphones.
