    Every 5G phone announced so far so you can get a faster internet connection

    We’ve come a long way when it comes to using the internet on our phones and 5G, short for “fifth generation,” is on its way. But while it’ll bring improvements in download and upload speeds, don’t expect to gain access right away — it’ll take time to proliferate throughout major cities and wider rural areas. Still, coverage is improving quickly, and while it’s still not worth everyone buying a 5G phone, if you’re within range of a 5G mast, it’s worth considering.

    The 5G revolution is now well underway, and whether you think we need 5G or not, it’s clear it’s here to stay. If you’re planning on purchasing a 5G-capable phone, look no further. We have all the info on both confirmed and rumored phone models that will be able to access 5G.

    Looking for the very best examples? We’ve made a list of the best 5G smartphones you can buy.


    Apple was never going to be the first out of the gate with 5G phone, but it’s caught up eventually with the iPhone 12 range. Every single model in the new iPhone range supports 5G, from the iPhone 12 Mini to the iPhone 12 Pro Max. If you want some Apple-branded 5G, then these are the phones to start with.

    Asus has been making smartphones for several years now, but it didn’t begin to gain mainstream attention in western markets until the ROG lineup of phones launched. The ROG Phone 3 is one of the beefiest and most powerful smartphones you can buy right now, and 5G is just the icing on the cake. Its Zenfone series is geared toward average consumers rather than gamers, and they’re more affordable than you might expect.

    It makes sense Google would package 5G support into its flagship Pixel 5, but having it bundled into the midrange-priced Pixel 4a 5G was always going to be a masterstroke. The inclusion of 5G means the Pixel 4a 5G bats pretty close to the Pixel 5, making it the Pixel phone to buy in 2020. With the Pixel 4a 5G having 5G, it’s fair to say the bets are off for future Pixel phones where 5G is concerned. Will the Pixel 5a come with a rock bottom price and 5G? It’s entirely possible, and that has us excited.

    HMD Global (Nokia)

    Well, it had us waiting for some time, but HMD Global has finally revealed the Nokia 8.3 5G — the first 5G-enabled Nokia phone, and one of the cheapest ways to get 5G.

    While we’ve been waiting a while for this phone, it was more or less a foregone conclusion it would arrive eventually. Nokia has been very active in helping to build 5G infrastructure and was involved with 5G networks for the 2020 Olympics. In July 2018, T-Mobile also announced it was working with Nokia to help build a U.S. 5G network. Nokia could also make $3.50 for every single 5G phone released, thanks to its work on the standard.

    Due to the Android licensing issues surrounding Huawei and Honor, the launch of Honor’s first 5G phone — the Honor V30 5G (also known as the Honor View 30 5G) — was a somewhat muted affair in the west. Still, it exists, opening the 5G floodgates for Huawei’s sister company. Are we likely to see more Honor phones with 5G? Absolutely. It seems sure the Honor 30S will launch with 5G after Honor president George Zhao was pictured on social media with it.

    Despite rumors saying we’d be seeing a 5G HTC smartphone in the second half of 2019, we heard very little from HTC throughout that year. Thankfully, it came back with a brace of 5G-enabled phones in June 2020 — the HTC U20 5G and the Desire 20 Pro.

    HTC has also released a 5G hub your phone can use to connect to a 5G network.

    Huawei has made no secret of its ambitions for 5G, and first spoke about a handset with 5G support in February 2018. Back then, 2019 was the target date for release, and Huawei hit that target with the release of the folding, 5G-capable Huawei Mate X. Since then, Huawei has made hay, releasing the MatePad Pro 5G and P40 series.

    With the Kirin 820 5G chip posting incredible benchmarks and Huawei being put in charge of building a lot of the UK’s 5G network, the 5G future is looking bright for Huawei, even if its future in the U.S. is… not going so well.

    LG was hot out of the gate and teamed up with Sprint to deliver the LG V50 ThinQ in early 2019, becoming one of the first 5G devices to hit the market. In fact, LG was so keen to get in on the 5G trend that it pushed the V50 ThinQ out a lot earlier than expected, with the phone landing on 20 June. LG gave 5G a rest for the LG G8 ThinQ, and has seemingly made it a V-range staple, adding 5G to the dual-screen LG V60 ThinQ. The LG Velvet also sports 5G connectivity with a Snapdragon 765G chipset, and so does the crazy LG Wing.

    Motorola is in something of a unique position on this list because not only has it already released multiple phones with 5G capabilities, it’s also updating previous phones with 5G connectivity through a special Moto Mod. The Moto Z4 and Moto Z3 use Motorola’s Moto Mod attachment to add a 5G power pack accessory onto the back of the phone, making it possible to access 5G networks. The Moto Z2 Force, a 2017 flagship, will also get access to 5G through the mod after its Android Pie update — but only Verizon models will get that update.

    The 5G Moto Mod wasn’t ready for launch earlier, but it’s finally available from Verizon, having been released to match the switching on of Verizon’s 5G network.

    But don’t expect Motorola to slow down just because it’s taken an early lead. 2020 features more than a few Motorola phones with 5G, and top of that list is the Motorola Edge Plus. The new Motorola One 5G earned our Recommended Product award, and the new Moto Razr (2020) is looking like everything the first Moto Razr should have been.

    OnePlus hasn’t gone mad with 5G releases, but it did jump on the bandwagon early with the OnePlus 7 Pro. The OnePlus 7T Pro was OnePlus’s second 5G phone, and OnePlus has continued its 5G support in the OnePlus 8 Pro. It’s probably a signifier of the increased maturity of 5G that OnePlus chose not to include “5G” in the title — essentially, it’s becoming more and more commonplace. Best of all, for fans of cheaper hardware, the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8T both include support for 5G.

    Despite making early waves by being the first to access a 5G network, Oppo didn’t really capitalize by releasing a slew of 5G devices quickly. But that doesn’t mean it’s done nothing, and there are now several 5G Oppo devices available.

    The Oppo Reno 10x Zoom 5G was the first, releasing in the U.K. on June 7. Since then, we’ve seen a number of Oppo 5G devices release, with more definitely on the horizon.

    Relative newcomer Realme has so far excelled at providing strong phones at reasonable prices, and that philosophy has extended to its first 5G phone. The Realme X50 Pro 5G is a flagship-level device with a solid camera system that starts from just $650. It’s no longer one of the cheapest ways to access 5G, but it’s still a good buy if you’re looking to test out the new generation of mobile internet.

    Samsung is the largest mobile manufacturer in the world, and it would be silly to expect it to sit back and ignore 5G. Despite saying the S10 wouldn’t be Samsung’s first 5G device earlier in 2019, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G was Samsung’s first 5G phone, with the Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G being the second, just beating the Galaxy Fold to the finish line. As expected, the Galaxy S20 range has its fair share of 5G phones, and so does the Note 20 range.

    Samsung announced a new focus on its midrange phones in 2018, and it has underlined that with the introduction of a 5G version of the midrange Galaxy A90. That said, while cheaper than Samsung’s more expensive flagships, it still costs about $800, so it’s hard to call it affordable. Samsung has rectified that a little bit by launching the Galaxy A71 5G and A51 5G, offering 5G connectivity for just $600 and $500 respectively.

    While we didn’t see a 5G Sony phone in 2019, 2020 has seen the reveal of the Sony Xperia 1 II, Sony’s first 5G phone. Due to be announced at the ill-fated MWC 2020, Sony’s new flagship phone sports an upgraded camera, the Snapdragon 865, and a massive CinemaWide OLED display.

    Will there be more 5G Sony phones? Sony is on Qualcomm’s list of 5G partners, so it makes sense we’ll be seeing more 5G-enabled phones from Sony over the year.

    Chinese juggernaut Xiaomi laid its cards on the table earlier than most, announcing a 5G-capable model of its Mi Mix 3 was in the works. Xiaomi took to MWC 2019 to reveal the phone and released it in May 2019, making it one of the first companies to release a 5G phone. Since then we’ve seen a modest number of 5G offerings from Xiaomi, including the Xiaomi Mi 10 and the concept phone, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha.

    ZTE’s first 5G phone came in early 2019 when the Axon 10 Pro 5G released in Europe and China in May 2019. ZTE was a little quiet for the rest of 2019, but came roaring back in 2020 with the ZTE Axon 10s Pro. Like most other smartphone brands, these 5G devices are flagship-level phones and come with top specs. ZTE’s sub-brand Nubia also announced a 5G phone: The Nubia X.
