You must try the fastest no hassle connection in a fiber to realize how great the new 5G technology is. However, you will not be able to use these new speeds with your old mobile phones. As a matter of fact, most of the mobile phones that will be launched in the future will not support the new 5G technology. This is not much of a problem since 5G coverage are not yet widely implemented.
However, renowned microchip-maker Qualcomm has announced during a convention that there will be over thirty 5G enabled gadgets launching this year with most of these being smartphones.

It has not been a secret that Samsung has been working on a new phone and it has been revealed that this will be the company’s first 5G enabled mobile phone. It is expected that it will be a revision of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and will probably be called Samsung S10X.

In addition, it will also have a gigantic 6.7-inch touch screen, 4 rear cameras and 2 front cameras, 5,000mAh battery capacity and 12 gigabytes of RAM.

The company has not yet revealed what will be the codename of their 5G smart phone but what has been confirmed is that they have already one in the works. Last year, the Chinese mobile phone maker successfully tested and integrated a modified an OPPO R15 to a 5G network. Additionally, they have also demonstrated the world’s first 5G network video call.

This phone already has a release date but it does not support 5G. However, the 5G model is set to be released sometime in the middle of the year.

It will be specifically released in the United Kingdom because OnePlus has confirmed that they have partnered with UK network EE. They are also expecting to release the phone in the US but they might not release the phone in Australia. Amidst all the talking, the company has yet to reveal the exact date that they will launch the phone.
Speculations have been circling around that they will launch their 5G phone as the OnePlus 7 and that we might expect a release date as early as May. Others also say that OnePlus’ 5G phones will be the start of a new flagship line. Either way, the phone is expected to be more expensive compared to other OnePlus phones. The OnePlus CEO has already confirmed that it will cost around $250 to $350.
Mobile phone giant Apple is also expected to release their take on the 5G phone but will not likely be the first one to release it. There are rumors spreading online that Apple won’t be integrating 5G capabilities in the upcoming iPhone 11 and that Apple enthusiasts will have to wait until 2020 for the iPhone 12 for 5G.
As of January, the latest news about the iPhone 12 is that Apple is still undecided on which 5G modem microchips to use which means they still have a long way to go. The good news is that when Apple releases a phone, they are likely to be released worldwide.
