A planar monopole having a small size yet providing two wide bands for covering the eight-band LTE/GSM/UMTS operation in the mobile phone is presented. The small-size yet wideband operation is achieved by exciting the antenna's wide radiating plate using a coupling feed and short-circuiting it to the system ground plane of the mobile phone through a long meandered strip as an inductive shorting strip. The coupling feed leads to a wide operating band to cover the frequency range of 1710-2690 MHz for the GSM1800/1900/UMTS/LTE2300/2500 operation. The inductive shorting strip results in the generation of a wide operating band to cover the frequency range of 698-960 MHz for the LTE700/GSM850/900 operation. The planar monopole can be directly printed on the no-ground portion of the system circuit board of the mobile phone and is promising to be integrated with a practical loudspeaker. The antenna's radiating plate can also be folded into a thin structure (3 mm only) to occupy a small volume of 3 × 6 × 40 mm3 (0.72 cm3) for the eight-band LTE/GSM/UMTS operation; in this case, including the 8-mm feed gap, the antenna shows a low profile of 14 mm to the ground plane of the mobile phone. The proposed antenna, including its planar and folded structures, are suitable for slim mobile phone applications.
