It’s not been very long since the 4G network supported smartphones were introduced in the market. This latest technology has been a boon to all the users of smartphones and other devices as it helped in fast downloads, quick browsing, video streaming and other activities that require using the internet. But the good news is, very soon the 5G phone technology will also be introduced, which will make our phones faster than ever. Alongside, there are also a few brands that are planning to introduce their upcoming smartphones with the 5G speed.
Reports are suggesting that brands like HTC, Sony, LG, and ZTE are in plans to offer fast, and broadband-equivalent 5G download speeds options to phones that will be out in 2019. Hence, we list out a few smartphones below that are likely to come with 5G network support.
Already, there are several rumors doing rounds about the launch of Samsung Galaxy S10. A few of them are also stating about the strategic agreement between Samsung and Qualcomm, especially emphasizing the transition to 5G. If the 5G transition to the Galaxy S10 happens to be true, then it will be a great move by the brand as it further adds weight to the device’s specs list. With the introduction of 5G speed, Samsung will further facilitate its users to experience fast downloads and even quick video streaming services.
A source from the Huawei’s Western European Consumer Business Group has already mentioned the company’s plans of introducing the 5G network mobile phones. It’s upcoming offering, Huawei P30 is highly expected to come with this feature. If not, the brand will probably introduce it through the next Mate Series. Besides, there are two more flagships in the P Series and Mate Series in-line to be released. Based on their chipset capacity and performance, the 5G mobile technology will be introduced. Besides, a phone also requires better battery capacity to support the service. Hence, along with the latest 5G phone, we might also expect improved batteries.
The CEO of OnePlus has already announced that it is going to offer 5G smartphones, perhaps in the coming year. As the next upcoming smartphone from the brand is OnePlus 7, we can assume it to support the 5G network. The 5G mobile technology will be just perfect for this upcoming OnePlus smartphone, a brand that offers the best with every new model. Even the previous handsets like OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 5T are highly applauded for their excellent speed and performance. Hence with the OnePlus 7, the company might stand next to other leading brands like Samsung, Huawei, and Sony which are already working on introducing this technology.
Recently, the Japanese multinational corporation Sony has discussed bringing innovation in the smartphone technology. This came up almost the same time when its rivals like Huawei and OnePlus have announced about offering 5G smartphones. So, this might be a hint that Sony may also go the same track and commit to offering its upcoming smartphones like Xperia XZ3 with 5G network support. A few reports are also hinting at this device to arrive before February 2019, which is also the launch date of the Galaxy S10.
Its been only a few days since Apple has claimed to have discussed with MediaTek about offering a 5G modem. It is indeed a surprising move as Apple usually takes enough time to adapt to the latest technology. For instance, the last device iPhone X didn’t come with support to LTE, whereas its rivals had this feature. As the company now has enough time to work on its next handset, it may consider providing the next smartphone with 5G mobile technology.
