    It lies in which frequencies the carrier you want to use uses. The first SIM card you put into the phone usually locks it to the region, so if you put in aasian card, it'll be locked for use in Asia (southeast or any other part of the continent). The phone has to be SIM-unlocked (what's usully called just "unlocked") so it can take any carrier's SIM. But if the frequencies the carrier uses for data aren't in the phone, you'll get very low speed data (over the voice channel - it's called EDGE). Check the carrier at List of mobile network operators of the Asia Pacific region - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and check the data frequencies they use against the frequencies the phone has - it looks like the 4G (not the 4G 2015) has the following (LATAM is Latin America):

    3G bands
    HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
    HSDPA 850 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 - T-Mobile, AT&T
    HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 - USA
    HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100 - LATAM
    4G bands
    LTE 700 / 850 / 1700 / 1900 (Bands 2, 4, 5, 17) - USA
    LTE 800 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600 (Bands 1, 3, 7, 8, 20) - EU
    LTE 700 / 1700 / 2100 / 2600 (Bands 4, 7, 17) - LATAM
