On to the motherboard, which had the following chips arrayed on it, according to iFixit:

Toshiba THGBM5G6A2JBA1R 8GB Flash
Qualcomm WTR1605L Seven-Band 4G LTE chip
Qualcomm MDM9215M 4G GSM/CDMA modem
SlimPort ANX7808 SlimPort Transmitter (HDMI output converter)

Avago 3012 Ultra Low-Noise GNSS Front-End Module

Does this mean all that is needed for it to be LTE capable is a software update?

Re: iFixit tearsdown Nexus 4 : LTE Chip?!
The chip is there because its based on the LTE equipped Optimus G and was just redesigned for the Nexus 4 and the chip was left there. Although the chip is there, there is no LTE antenna. There was also no power amp found on the board.
