5G phones: these are going to be the first next-gen handsets
In much of the world – including the US and UK – we will see 5G networks launch in 2019. They’ll be faster than 4G, but you won’t be able to utilize the new speeds with your current handset. You’ll need a 5G phone.
However, the majority of phones launching in the near future won’t support the fifth generation network. That’s not a huge problem because 5G coverage won’t be widespread for a while, but if you want your next phone to be future-proofed then you’ll want it to work with 5G.
