5G Devices Ecosystem June 2020

Key facts

The number of announced 5G devices has continued to climb swiftly, accompanied this month by a continued rapid rise in the number of 5G devices that are commercially available. In January 2020, the number of announced 5G devices exceeded 200 for the first time; by end-May 296 devices had been announced, of which at least 112 were commercially available (up from 95 in April). Not all devices are available immediately and specification details remain limited for some devices.

By end May 2020, GSA had identified:

  • sixteen announced form factors (phones, head-mounted displays, hotspots, indoor CPE, outdoor CPE, laptops/notebooks, modules, snap-on dongles/adapters, industrial grade CPE/routers/gateways, drones, robots, tablets, TVs, a switch, modems and a vending machine).
  • eighty-four vendors who had announced available or forthcoming 5G devices.
  • two hundred and ninety-six announced devices (including regional variants, and phones that can be upgraded using a separate adapter, but excluding prototypes not expected to be commercialised and operator-branded devices that are essentially rebadged versions of other phones), including at least 112 that are commercially available:
  • one hundred and nineteen phones, (up 11 from April), at least 77 of which are now commercially available (up 13 in a month). Includes three phones that are upgraded to offer 5G using an adapter.
  • eighty-four CPE devices (indoor, and outdoor, including two Verizon-spec compliant devices not meeting 3GPP 5G standards, and enterprise grade CPE/routers/gateways), at least 16 of which are now believed to be commercially available.
  • forty-seven modules.
  • twenty hotspots (including regional variants), at least ten of which are now commercially available.
  • five laptops (notebooks).
  • twenty-one other devices (including drones, head mounted displays, robots, snap-on dongles/adapters, a switch, tablets, TVs, USB terminals/dongles/modems, and a vending machine).

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