Which phones let me connect to 5G in 2019?

New 5G network service was connected in several countries around the world in recent months before all brands had their own 5G smartphone.

Nokia Android 10 roadmap includes affordable 5G phone

The big news in the Android world today has been the switch of release branding from letters and desserts to plain numbers. While it might not matter much just yet to actual phones, HMD Global is, perhaps unsurprisingly, jumping on the opportunity to layout its plans for updating its phones to the new Android 10. But while it has concretely shared its roadmap to updating existing phones, it has also dropped hints about its intention to launch a 5G 5G Nokia phone at half the price of current 5G handsets.

Verizon 5G starts filling the gaps with clever Boingo deal

Verizon 5G starts filling the gaps with clever Boingo deal

Verizon is expanding its 5G service to a number of high-traffic areas by partnering with Boingo Wireless. Boingo Wireless has services in distributed antenna systems (DAS), small cells, and Wi-Fi - which allows them to make cash selling internet access to people in airports. The last time you saw the brand Boingo, it was likely at a location where you'd otherwise have issues getting internet access - now they're working with Verizon to spread 5G internet access to those same arenas.

Moto Z2 Force 5G Moto Mod support confirms end of the line

Motorola is expected to launch at least two more "One" smartphones within the next few months but their existence might hint at the end of the company's Z series. Although the Moto Z4 did launch just last May, it was far from being a flagship contender in 2019. In terms of the Z family, the rugged "Force" series often carries the torch for high-end specs. But with the announcement of support for Motorola's 5G add-on, it seems that Motorola fans can stop hoping for a new Force still to come.

Huawei Mate 20X teardown reveals chinks in Huawei’s 5G armor

Huawei's future has been in question ever since it has been put on the US' blacklist, depriving it of access to US hardware and software. In response, it has been painting an image of self-efficiency while also trying to demonstrate what the rest of the market would lose out on without Huawei. One of those is in the nascent 5G technology, which the company first debuted on the Mate 20X earlier this year. It turns out, however, that it may have spoken too soon and its 5G mobile chip is anything worth boasting about.

All 2020 iPhones to have 5G support

All 2020 iPhones to have 5G support

It was expected news but it was still big when it landed. Apple had purchased a great portion of Intel's smartphone modem business. That was largely seen as a move to secure Cupertino's independence from other manufacturers. It might sound a bit too soon but that acquisition might already have its effects as early as 2020. According to Ming-chi Kuo, next year will finally see the arrival of 5G functionality to iPhones. And not just the expensive ones, mind, but all three iPhone models.

DISH as Wireless Carrier: What’s that mean for me and 5G?

DISH as Wireless Carrier: What’s that mean for me and 5G?

Today DISH stood to gain in a BIG way thanks to the merger between Sprint and T-Mobile USA approved by the United States Department of Justice. T-Mobile USA and Sprint will become one carrier, but they'll need to divest control of a whole lot of STUFF to DISH in order to make that merger possible. DISH will effectively become a "national facilities-based wireless carrier," and will deploy the "Nation's First Standalone 5G Broadband Network."
