5G Device Ecosystem – December
GSA’s GAMBoD database contains 199 announced 5G devices from seventy-six vendors, at least 47 of which are commercially available.
During 2019 the number of announced 5G devices has grown rapidly, starting with a few announcements and then gathering pace as operators in various parts of the world launched their fi rst commercial 5G services.
By mid-December, GSA had identified:
• sixteen announced form factors (phones, head-mounted display, hotspots, indoor CPE, outdoor CPE, laptops/notebooks, modules, snapon dongles/adapters, routers, drones, robots, tablets, TVs, a switch, a USB terminal and a vending machine).
• seventy-six vendors that had announced available or forthcoming 5G devices.
• one hundred and ninety-nine announced devices (including regional variants, and phones that can be upgraded using a separate adapter, but excluding both prototypes not expected to be commercialised and operator-branded devices that are essentially rebadged versions of other phones), including at least 47 that are commercially available (up from 42 in mid-December and around 20 commercially available devices in June 2019):
• sixty-three phones, at least twenty-nine of which are now commercially available, (including three that can be 5G-enabled with an adapter)
• thirteen hotspots (including regional variants), at least seven of which are now commercially available
• sixty-one CPE devices (indoor and outdoor, including two Verizonspec compliant devices not meeting 3GPP 5G standards) at least nine of which are now believed to be commercially available
• thirty-four modules
• seven routers
• three robots
• three televisions
• two snap-on dongles/adapters
• three tablets
• two drones
• two head-mounted displays
• two laptops (notebooks)
• one switch
• two USB terminals/dongles

Not all devices are available immediately and specifi cation details remain limited for some devices.
