Out of what's provided there the 939 is the one you want.

The RM-939 appears to be only equipped for HSPA+, so 4G but not 4G LTE. Out of curiosity, why are you thinking of getting that device?
I like Windows Phone and I like the size, camera and other specs on the 1520. I already have a 920. What does it take for 4GLTE compatibility? Thanks.

Well on those specs you listed the phone that's compatible with Koodo doesn't list LTE. You need HSPA 850/1900 and I believe the same for LTE as well.

If you want LTE, your only choice is the crippled RM-940 (AT&T) version which has no Qi charging. It only used to be offered in the 16 GB variant, but they've added a 32 GB model as well. Both have expandable memory but your apps are limited to the internal storage. I'd personally rather give up LTE (have it disabled on all my phones anyway) than Qi as I have the DT-910 charging stand and the CR-200 car dock as well as a couple of generic Chinese Qi plates on a side table and my office desk. The RM-938 would be ideal as it's compatible with Koodo's LTE and has wireless charging but that variant seems to only exist on paper. I'm yet to see anyone confirm its existence.
