Here are the top 5G phones that connect to the next-gen network.
Last year, major carriers kicked off their 5G deployment in earnest, and you’ll continue to see 5G phones being released this year and next. In the US, 5G is currently live in select cities for AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and other regional carriers. The 5G networks for all four major carriers in the UK are live too.
Apple’s latest iPhone 12 phones all have 5G connectivity, and Samsung, the most popular manufacturer of 5G phones, has several under its belt. This includes the foldable Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the premium Galaxy Note 20 phones, and the more budget-friendly Galaxy A71 5G. Though it won’t replace 4G in its entirety, 5G is the next generation of mobile connectivity. 5G works fast and many industries will benefit from the new network, including self-driving cars, drones and the Internet of Things.
Most people will likely experience the benefits of a robust 5G network only through a 5G phone. After all, the grand promises carriers and chipmakers are making with 5G coverage won’t mean much if you can’t access 5G service with your own device after the rollout. To help you keep tabs on all the latest 5G phones and when we can expect more, here’s what the major phone makers are offering.
