Verizon Pixel 4a 5G Ultra Wideband support will cost you

Last year's new hotness is this year's normal as 5G support becomes pretty much standard in many new phones.

LG Velvet 5G UW on Verizon is pretty and pretty expensive

The Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Surface Duo may be hogging the spotlight in both good and bad ways but they aren't the only non-conventional smartphones around.
