Best 5G Phones to Buy in 2019


5G, as the name indicates is the 5th generation of cellular network which was under the process since last year. It claims to enhance the speed, coverage, and responsiveness of wireless networks to a great extent than the previous versions like 4G or 3G. Moreover, it is going to give low latency by reducing the lag time to around 15-20 milliseconds. 

5G connectivity in Pakistan and in other parts of the world is expected to completely take over the cellular networks by the end of the next year that is 2020. Because companies are trying and testing this on their own before officially bringing it to their customers. Thus we can say it is a premature baby which is not yet fully prepared for exposure to the world. 

It is to be noted that 5G services are not accessible on every smartphone. This means that this network service requires specific bands to capture the signals and provide connectivity. Now the question is what mobile supports the 5G services or what mobile you should buy to benefit from this next level network coverage? Well, the 5G enabled phones are still underway. However, there are some handsets introduced that are specifically designed for the upcoming 5G network. Let’s see their features and specs.
