Despite the fact thatfrom a faster connection – self-driving cars, unmanned vehicles and the Internet of things, to name a few – most people will likely feel the benefits of a reliable 5G network only through phone with 5G support. Ultimately, the big promise made by Qualcomm and carriers with a 5G coverage does not mean much if you can not access the network with your own device.

Update, April 5, 2019 : Added information about the 5G Verizon Network in Chicago.
– do not expect this this year or maybe even 2020. With the exception of headphone refusal (the iPhone 7 was one of the first phones that lacks one), Apple is usually the first on mobile trends, preferring instead to upgrade new technologies before doing so. For example, he was behind his rivals in the production of phones with 3G and 4G LTE connections, when these networks only started. In addition, stated that Intel will not have 5G modem chips until 2020 (Apple uses Intel chips on its iPhone).
This does not mean that 5G is not ignored at all. As mentioned earlier, some iPhone models on AT & T show the "5G E" symbol on their network, despite being misleading.
Apple did not respond to a comment request.
Samsungpresented during unpacking, has a 6.7-inch display, four cameras rear and the ability to wirelessly charge other devices. In the US, the phone in the second quarter, and then headed for AT & T, Sprint and T-Mobile. Although the exact price was not given, it is expected to cost $ 1,000 to $ 1980.

Google did not disclose its plans for 5G, and the company refused to respond to a comment request. We know thatlike other carriers.
What about Google exactly? Over the past few years, Google has used Verizon as its exclusive partner for its Pixel phones, including the newalthough the company also sells the phone unlocked or on the Wi-Fi network, Google Fi.
This may mean that the next flagship of Google, called Pixel 4, may be a 5G phone. If he follows his usual launch schedule, Pixel 4 will debut around October 2019 – after the first half of the year.
At MWC this year LG unveiled   V50 ThinQ 5G . As expected, the phone will be available in the US via Sprint. (LG first confirmed this in August 2018, when it became known that). The V50 will also be the first 5G Sprint phone, but it will also be available on the 5G Ultra Wideband of the Verizon, T-Mobile and AT & T networks later this year. ( in the near future, and this, as the Oakla carrier analyst said, "could lead to an incomparable network before the 5G.")
The phone has a 6.4- inch OLED display, three rear cameras, including wide-angle and telephoto, Snapdragon 855 chipset and two front cameras. He can also join thewhich increases the size of the phone's display.
Lenovo / Motorola
In August last year Lenovo unveileda 5G phone. It connects only to 5G with a modular accessory which connects to the back of the phone by means of magnetic contacts. With Mod, Motorola says that the phone will deliver 10 times faster data than other 4G LTE devices. When we checked out the Verizon 5G network with a phone and Mod, Dolcourt noticed that "the theoretical boot speeds kissed 600Mbps." But sometimes, "the download would start a lot, the phone would flicker to show the 4G logo, and the speed would fall." The mod is now sold for $ 200 (the full retail price is $ 350).
As for the Motorola phone, which does not need an accessory to connect to 5G, the company is working on the creation of such a device, but. Doug Mishawa, Motorola Mobility Technical Sales and Operations Director, said that the phone will arrive much later than in early 2019.
Huawei has announced the appearance ofon the MWC 2019. The device has a 6.6-inch display. folded closed, and an 8-inch OLED screen when you open it. It is also equipped with a 4500 mAh battery and three rear view cameras. Mate X is scheduled to launch in the middle of the year and will cost a whopping 2300 euros (about $ 2,600).

This does not necessarily mean the end of Huawei and its 5G ambitions.

"We have earned the trust of our partners throughout the global value chain."
Having demonstrateda subsidiary of OnePlus Oppo said it plans to release a 5G phone this year. The device will contain the Snapdragon 855 chipset and it will be based on the Oppo Find X phone. When it was released last year, we considered Find X one of the best phones in 2018. It has a unique pop-up camera, good design and fast charging.
Although it's unlikely to come to the US, the 5G version is scheduled to release for some time between April and June. Oppo works with four carriers (Swisscom, Australia, Telstra and Optus, as well as Singtel in Singapore) to launch the phone. It's also a partnership with China Mobile to sell the phone later this summer.
