5G (5th iteration of the telecommunication industry revolution) is the revolution technology which we will get in the upcoming days. You have bunch of questions in your mind like do we get this 5G in our existing smartphone or could we get it via OTA software updates.All your doubts will be cleared in this topic.
First the 5G things started spreading all over the world from the OnePlus 6T launch event. The event was held by OnePlus and to create curiosity about their next flagship they announced that the next Flagship of the company i.e, OnePlus 7 will support the 5G support.But actually OnePlus renders are not providing the 5G support. What? Yes it is true read upto the end and get to know.
Smartphones Available for 5G Support
According to the sources, the high end smartphones which launch in 2019 like Samsung S10 and OnePlus 7 ..blah blah have the 5G support. Actually the Qualcomm’s Next generation 8X series processor that is Snapdragon 855 supports the 5G network.So the High end smartphones which binds with Qualcomm new processor will support 5G.
But the Mid range smartphones will also get 5G support but it may be late compare to the flagship devices.In the Mid of 2019 the 6X and 7X models new processors will get exclusively launched by Qualcomm for mid range smartphones support it.
Does Exciting Smartphones get 5G in future?
Some existing smartphones users starts scratching their head because they have a big question in the mind that do we get the 5G support in our existing smartphones. The straight answer is ‘No’. Because the 5G support needs the dedicated hardware, modems and radios.So it is completely based on the hardware. None of the Software OTA updates can’t provide 5G to any of the existing smartphones.Even the costly device like Apple iPhone XS Max, Google Pixel 3XL, OnePlus 6T doesn’t technically support 5G by hardware.
So there is no phone support 5G now and none of the devices can support 5G by OTA updates.
5G Process Reality Facts
Taking about the reality facts, what we expecting the 5G is 20X is faster than 4G and the max speed it can gives upto 10Gbps may be true.The 5G is more faster but our in India the Spectrum for 5G is not started yet.The government said that it will be located in the mid of 2019.After Spectrum locating the network providers like Airtel, Jio.. will starts working on 5G and they will provide the technology.Jio and Airtel are in race to provide 5G to their customers.
Who will provide it?
Jio is already in Race to launch 5G services as soon as possible in India.Jio will stars working on it and will provide 5G support with cheaper plans after six months of spectrum location.So we have to wait untill end of 2019 or in between 2020 we can experience it.
No 5G Available. Why?
If any smartphone renders release the 5G supporting device then also we can’t experience 5G because the 5G network service is not started in India.So it is mutual relationship between smartphone and 5G network service providers.
According to the sources, Mi Mix 3 is the first device in India to host 5G support in this year. Lets wait and see who will provide 5G support in India.
Technical Predicted availability of 5G
But the reality lies in when all the smartphones get the 5G.The 5G support may be available from end of 2019 or in between 2020 to all the users with cheaper plans than 4G at first. I am excited to experience 5G speed and technology in the upcoming years. Jio is already in Race to launch 5G services ASAP in India.
